I raced a 2004 yfz with full GYTR exhaust, and velocity filter when i was bone stock. However the 2004 is only 239cc not 449 like 2005 and later but I still pulled away from him from the start. I also had a higher top speed even though he was running 22" rear holeshots.

I have a good friend i run with who has a 2009 yfz450 and i have 3 times the power he does, but he is about 3x's faster than me through the woods. He is almost a pro rider who is super good.. even though he is like 50 lol. I'm 24 and he is in better shape than i am. so.. yes i have ran a yfz450 and smoked him, but they are alot faster through the woods.. alot more agile.

Yeah I have both but I don't trust anyone to ride them and my girl can't really ride well enough. Plus I can already say my YFZ will spank my XX it pulls hard all the way to a 70mph top speed. Not as fast in top speed but I can guarantee it will destroy the xx. I was thinking more stock vs stock

My xx is stock.. well spark arrester is out and his yfz has and gytr exhaust and an k&n air box cover. but his engine is pretty much stock. He let me drive his a lil bit and it lacked major power compared to the xx. Like i said pretty much stock for stock i've got 3x's the power but he is alot more agile.

I have a friend with a lightly modded YFZ I have only ridden in the sand with him but I cannot catch him. I roll past him in 5th and think I got him, only a few seconds later I get sand in my face. Damn it!

i dont get these experiences where u guys are losing to 450s... :confused: i think ive raced everything there is on a comp sand hill at sand lake and florence (both on the oregon coast, and ive only lost to 1 450 that was heavily built. banshees are a different story but with the 450s i dont struggle at all. my buddy has a trx 450 (kick start) and hes got the big 3 and a cam and his carbs been re jetted and i get him every time, i pull about 2, 2 1/2 bikes on him at the start and then stay that way for miles. we've raced up and down the beach a hundred times and it always ends the same. on the drag hill ive lost to built banshees, 700 raptors on 13 teeth and the 1 aforementioned built 450. all the losses came with me on the stock 14t and i havent been back to the hill since i put the 13t on, but im positive the results will change, because on the 14t at the hill i was only loosin by a bike length or less.

confusing :nuts:

My YFZ has only a DASA pipe straight intake with K&N jetted and boysen 3 and I can say for sure it pulls twice as hard as my XX does in stock form.

I raced a yfz several times down a pro quad dragstrip, everytime I beat him, but only by 1 or 2 quad lengths. He said he had a "hot cam" which he claimed was his only mod. He was a lttle dude about 120lbs or so and he seemed quite impressed I beat him as I was the only one to do so all day. My xx is stock other than two bros fuel controller and exhaust.

I think weight is a huge factor when it comes to racing, especially dragging. The xx has a huge disadvantage when it comes to weight.

ive raced a can am 450 and a honda 450 and i've beaten both from start to finish. i honestly dont see how people say they have a problem beatin them. but i did race a honda crf 450 dirtbike and it spanked me outta the hole, but when i got into 3rd i was right behind it and gainin but i wound up losin. the front of my 700 was about even with the back of his front tire in the end.

i have raced plenty of stock yfz's when my xx was stock, and beat them, and it goes about the same as i mod i could beat faster ones.

the major advantage of the yfz is that it gets off the line alot quicker.

BUT i also have a 06 yfz450 with fully built race motor and suspension. and the two down even compare. the yfz beats it everytime. everywhere. drag,trail,mx. even on a top end roll down a long road the yfz won. the only thing that sucks is when trail riding the yfz dont have reverse.

Racing is fun, makes me feel like a bigger man.........
My cousin has a 04 yfz he has a intake, lrd full exhaust, and jetted
I was stock and he was ahead about a bike and a half he can ride
I've beaten stock for stock 450r's, ltr-450's

I do know this though they slow down a hell of a lot on whoops and rocky terrain while i sit and sip coffee...
