Horse Power

This was found on another forum................... Thought it would be great to share if you have not seen it yet.

Heres a list of some comparable hp numbers.

08 250ex: 16.8hp
08 300ex: 22.1hp
08 400ex: 34.2hp
08 450r: 42.6hp
08 700XX: 53hp
08 KFX450r:42.1
08 KFX700:48.8
08 Z400: 36.6hp
08 Ltr450: 41.6hp
08 Raptor 250: 18.8
08 YFZ450: 38.6hp
08 Raptor700r: 46.9hp

Remarkably, it is making at least 10.4 more hp than any 450 and 7.1 more hp than than Raptor 700r while a modest 4.5hp more than the automatic KFX700 with the mighty V-Twin.

The numbers of from the California Environmental Protection Agency.

Re: Horse Power

That web site is great. I think atv and motorcycle makers should have to publish their Hp and torque #'s on a "window sticker" just like the auto makers.

They all say things like class leading performance when advertising their quad or bike but very few will proudly spill the beans on actual power. Too often you have to play detective to find that out.

Of all the quads that you chose to list, you some how seem to have left out the only other IRS sport quad.
The 525 is rated for 49.6 hp. More hp than the Rap and the same weight. The 525 is more quad than I ever would have guessed. That first shoot out will be interesting to say the least.

The 46.9 is at the crank for the 700 Raptor too, they normally get 40 or so at the tires stock.

That sure is the important hp number. What is all that hp worth unless it makes it to the point of friction (tires to ground). I don't remember exactly but I remember hearing the 700xx is about 43 hp at the tires. Obviously, you can mod your quad to get more of the engine hp to the tires but for stock comparisons it is the hp at the tires that makes the difference. Also, the old weight/hp ratio. I've heard these results before but I've completely forgot these numbers. I believe at least between the rappy and honda they were very close and the outlaw most likely is a little higher. All sweet quads.

Bo, In your quest for more horsepower have you found any specific types or brands of lubricants for transmissions and/or chains that will deliver measurable results at the wheels? (in other words reducing parasitic power loss)

If we didn't have wet clutches or if we separate engine oil from tranny oil we could go synthetic. You can see a visible infrared temperature difference on a motorcycle engine with synthetic vs. regular oil.

Here's some interesting reading but wouldn't totally apply to our engines. (damn wet clutch)

The article says it can be used with wet clutch systems... I believe the Honda oil I purchased was synthetic also

im not 100% sure about synthetic oil in a wet clutch system either because when i had my ninja i asked about synthetic oil and they say not to use it in a wet clutch system untill you get a lot of time on the motor in this case 15k miles or more. if your really worried about engine oil than just change it more often, i doubt i will ever run synthetic oil in my machine.

Like everything you can get many grades and forms of synthetic oil. Most good syth oils are just fine for wet clutches - it will say "suitable for wet type clutchs" somewhere on the front.

If it doesn't say "suitable for wet type clutchs" then don't buy it.

Synthetic oils that are not suitable have an additive called XXXXX ......can't remember.......but is usually listed on the cover as "friction modifiers "........this is the stuff you want to avoid.

Edit: I can remember, "molly" additive.....it's actually got a realy long name but most refer to it as molly.

I use a "full synthetic" oil but most aren't; the companies can say it's synthetic even if it's a blend of the two.

I use Motul 300V Factory Line 15w/50.......expensive stuff. Engine runs better, cooler & longer.
