The arguement on which is faster is funny. They're neck and neck from the factory. Its not like the XX blows the Raptor out of the water or the other way around. Like others have said there are a LOT of factors that need to be considered. It could be anyones race any given day. Both are awesome machines and I like riding with Raptors. If everyone had the same machine it would be boring and lame. I chose the XX for the IRS, had to have the ground clearence. Awesome choice for anyone riding more than just a smooth, flat trail.

I beat a raptor yesterday every run up the hill. both machines were stock except for paddles. I had Skat~Haulers and he had some ITP sand stars. I weight 200lb and he weighted 150 and I ended at the top by 3-4 atv lengths. we were neck and neck until 2/3 the way up and I started to pull on him really hard every run. I let him use my machine and I took his... I couldn't keep up to save my life. I like the raptors but in the sand they are not anywhere near where the 700XX is. He was practically groveling over my bike as was his buddy who had a built 660r that slaughered me up the hill. after I let them both ride it they were both really impressed by the xx. I have gotta say it's great to hang out with cool people who ride other bikes.

To start I have no video sorry. Parts took my money before a GoPro could be purchased. Well I raced my buddy today. He has a '06 Raptor 700r SE and I have the 08' XX of course in the faster black color. As for mods both have UNI air filters. I have 24" Bear Claw tires on mine as well and a 12 tooth sprocket otherwise pretty stock.

I launched in 2nd. He pulled mabye a 1/4 quad length on me every time as soon as we launched but I quickly took that back and then some everytime at the first shift. It was all XX from there. There will be many more races with him to come as he is the buddy that rides with me everytime I go riding. Hopefully with video next time. After we raced he told me that he though the Raptor would destroy the XX but to his supprize no, but then quickly said that if he had some better tires he would probably win. lol These are with my mud tires on! I want to get some Razrs for the rear but it probably wont be for awhile

Wow your cousin knows he is 120lbs over max weight for a raptor?
