Re: Raptor big bore kit

Re: Raptor big bore kit

they said it has to be longer so it doesent stand on its tail all the time , and you can get the kit ( longer rod , piston , rings , head work , new valve springs , cam , and new clutch springs ) for the mear price of only $1620.00

WHY WOULD ANY ONE NEED THAT KIND OF POWER ? unless you were racing pro. there is no need for it , the Raptor is already a power house

Re: Raptor big bore kit

I have to say that the extra power from the kit would help increase the distance between my modified raptor and other dune fanatics with swollen testicles who love that ultimate fast trip up the hill.I already have atough time keeping the front end down with the 4 inch swing arm extesion when drag racing up competition hill

Re: Raptor big bore kit

i couldnt imagine needing that much power really, nor could i afford to sink over $10,000 in a machine like that...heck thats almost what my truck cost! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] i have never rode a raptor, but i would love to just once...of course i would probably be hooked after that so its best not to ride one [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
