hey guys, hows it goin'? I've got a pretty big decision to make right now..at the moment I have a 2006 polaris 450 ( almost mint ) with brand new Mudlites on SS212 rims sitting in the garage. I out grew this ATV and i'm looking to buy a newer one. I really like the yamaha raptor 700 and the trx 450r from honda. I do not know wich one to buy!!! I am only gonna use the quad to go back and forth to the farm and go ridding with my friends in sand pits. I like a fast quad thats reliable. CAN ENYONE HELP ME DECIDE?????????

thanks man, i have tried me friends yammy 700, and the power is perfect, so im thinking of going for the raptor...but a few of my friends are telling me to go with the honda, i still got like 2-3 weeks to think about it. wich one is better for trail ridding? and i love to go fast.
The 450 will beat the 700 stock vs. stock. Put a set of duals, intake, and EFI controller an dthe raptor is almost unbeatable. The 450 will requier an additional mod, a cam upgrade to be able to hang with the piped 700. The 700 will be easier to ride on the trails, it has taller gears. But if you know how to work the clutch and use your gears, the 450 is VERY fast on the trails. They are both completely different as far as ergonomics goes. The 700 sits up very high and feels tippy, the 450 feels nice and low center of gravity and well planted. As far as the tippy feeling goes that is a matter of opinion and riding style.
thanks man! you helped me alot, exept im not doing eny trails..im gonna be on dirt roads..and I live in town so i cant pipe it, but i can put an intake and EFI controler. your comment helped me alot man, THANKS!!
There are some companies that make aftermarket pipes that stay close to the same sound level as stock. The HMF 2010 Comp Series is an amazing pipe, it also comes with different inserts to control the sound level.
