help me

HI all, new to 700xx thread ,my question is I have been thinking about getting a 700xx there selling them in oregon for $4500 out the door here or a yfz450r.I race at local gp races in expert class but sold my long travel yfz a few months ago due to several issues with the bike.The tracks we run are fairly high speed and rough with a motocross track mixed in,I'm not a big jumper but make up time in the corners and fast sections.

If i got the honda I would set it up with the houser a arms and fox shocks,there spendy but the quad is $1500 less then what i can get the yfz450r for and that still needs shocks .

Any advice would be helpful thanks Bryon

I am die hard Honda, but think I would have to go with the YFZ in that kind of race. Not knowing the exact tracks, it is hard to say though. You already know what a YFZ handles like on the tracks you run, see if you can try someones 700XX out. IMO, it is hard to beat a light weight revver with an SRA on a course with lots of turns and jumps. We couldn't convert you to a 450R Honda could we?

I've taken my xx places I wouldn't dream of taking a straight axle quad, hell sometimes I make it through the trails easier than the 4x4s but I can still play out in the open and have a blast. That's why I love my xx but for mx, yes you can do it with a xx but the yfz would be a better choice IMO.

IMO, by what you mentioned... The XX is a good option for you... Will you have to get used to it? Yes, but it'll be very rewarding...

My opinion comes from a race we had in June... it was staged at an MX track. I'd say at least 50% of it was mx. The other half was an off road section, which consisted of mostly single track trails... In my experience from it, I had no problems whatsoever running it. Just get yourself a DuraBlue sway bar, and your gold!
