look, I dont want to get into a pissing match with ya, when I smoked my first Dale, my YFZ was stock, I pulled out the baffle and removed the airbox lid, THATS ALL, now Im not saying the Dale is slow ITS NOT, but YES IVE ridden both, I PREFER THE YFZ , thats the great thing about having so many dif. kinds of Quads out there, what works for me doesent work for you , and vise versa, Im glad you like your quad, like any kind of racing, HOW FAST YOU GO DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH MONEY YOU SPEND, I didnt HAVE to spend money on my engine, I want the badest quad around, so I did! I dont know if its the badest around , but I havent found one that can out pull me yet, YET being the KEY word !!!
My point is this, I think the YFZ is a better quad than a Dale, you think the Dale is better than the YFZ, WHO CARES!!! TO EACH HIS OWN!!! just dont diss on someone elses ride just because you seen ONE that broke!!!
