I was beat by a Yamaha 450!!!!!!!!!!

I raced my friend last weekend with his Yamaha 450 and he smoked me. All he had was an exhaust addition to his quad. He has a lot of trophies for racing and I have none. LOL He was giving me advise and told me to start of in 2nd gear and keep the RPM's up when I take off. I tried this and what a big difference it made. I ran right over a rabbit that shot out in the road and killed it. Oooppps! He also suggested to go to a 15 tooth sprocket instead of the 13 tooth. This way I could wind out each year a bit longer.

Can I get some feed back on this?

Okay, a lot of people get the 13t for trail riding, b/c it allows you to stay in a bit higher RPM given the gear and technical terrain w/ out stalling. The 15t would make it a tad harder to ride trails, but would increase your overall top end of each gear. Starting off in 2nd is fine but I wouldn't know what to say about trying it w/ the 15t. A lot of people when they drag start off in 2nd b/c usually 1st gear is more say like a granny gear, this eliminates 1 extra shift shortly after take off.

He was maybe thinking of the raptor when he suggested the 15t, for us, the 15T works great. I think the XX is geared a little higher than the raptor is and a 15t may not be the best thing for the XX, you guys on here would know better about that than us raptor guys.

Sand Drags

How far are you from Silver Lake? A bunch of us are going there this weekend. We'll be doing a lot of sand drags. Come join us if u can make it. I saw that you were from Michigan but not sure of what part.

I also agree with launching in 2nd...

No offense, but if your friend has all the trophies, it may just be a matter you being beat by a far more experienced rider. Practice the second gear start...take as little time on the clutch as you can without grinding your gears up...
