450r vs 700xx

Any input anyone I have the xx and my friend is interested in a 450 he wants a straight axel bike he is not interested in the xx (clearly he is dumb)

What does it take to make a 450r faster than an xx?

2008 black/gray xx

I dont believe that is true. On a track you will get destroyed but a drag race I think the XX wins and if it is a drag race that has a few ruts in the way then its not even close. I used to have a YFZ 450 and thought when I switched to the XX I was giving up some speed for comfort and clearance but I was wrong. I feel that the XX pulls harder than the 450 ever did. IMO

Lol it was a joke.
I agree with you but I'm not to sure that the xx wouldnt hang with a 450 even on the track with a good xx rider. I too had a yfz450 and I know for a fact that the xx has more pull all the way to topend. When my yfz was stock to me it seemed like a turd now the xx is different it has torque. You can have all the HP in the world but you need torque to go with it.
My yfz was stolen and I miss it because I had alotta money in it.

Lol I understood what you said. I'm sayin I think that an xx with a good rider would probby hang right with the 450's on a track. I could be wrong but all I no is that I can sling my xx around just as easy as I could my yfz . The IRS doesnt bother me one bit I just ride it like a dirtbike and I dont really see all the pushing the frontend does that everyone gripes about . I love my xx

I have both a 450R and the XX. Granted, both of my 450Rs are built up pretty well, and the XX not so much, but IMO, he wont have to do much stock to stock for drag racing. The 450s are very fast machines as they are, about 38hP stock, and they are lighter and nimbler. I race the 450s on MX, and the XX in scrambles. I tried a 450 in a scramble, but seeing that it is not my main thing that I like to do, I use the XX for sheer comfort. Both of my 450s how they are set up blow away the xx up to about 60ish (I let my cousin drag me, and we swap back and forth machines, to make sure it is just not the driver), but after 60 my 450s are about topped out, 65 at the most, and the XX keeps going. I don't have a pro strip or anything, just fields, but with the weight of the XX it def hooks up better (plus I have RZR2s on the rear versus mx tires on the Rs which don't hook up well in grass). This is just my experience, I have no idea what they will do stock to stock, but all of mine have aftermarket stuff, and this is what Im basing this on. Also, the others are right about the pull, and the fact that is fuel injected is a huge bonus, pretty much 0 throttle response time, haha.

When I had only the big3, It was close races with my neighbors 450r equipped with an hrc kit. I would take him everytime, Long stretches I would really burn em.

Did you try to race your neigbor when you were stock? Just curious as I waited till I had the big three and 13t before I did anything.
