I love my 450(trx). I ride in the rocky mountains. The trails are nasty, I can make it through anything. I recommend skid plates.

I have a LT250R and I think I would like to have a Raptor if I ever went 4Stroke.

Raptors are a great machine, highly overrated though.IMO For having 250cc over the 450s, it's not that much better. It rocks in the dunes but other than that they are no better than the 450s.

The Raptor has a bigger slower revving engine with a ton of bottom end torque. The 450's are more racy, quick revving motors but not as much torque as the big Raptor. It is less work riding a Raptor because you don't have to worry as much about gear selection because it has so much torque. The 450's need to be kept in the right part of the power curve in order to be fast. Personally, I like the higher strung, quicker revving motors for balls-out riding, I think they are alot more fun. That's why I ride a 2-stroke, but if I were ever to buy a 4-stroke, it would be a 450, because they are snappier than the bigger bikes.

the kawi is the slowest of all the 450's ...go with the rappy its the best trail ride out there..has tones of power and is very reliable...fuel injection is awesome for cold starts ...trust me it will never let you down...if your someone that likes to ride fast the 700 is for you...you never have to screw around with jetting your carbs or worring about dirty carbs...hop on it and go...450's are higher maintanence as they are designed for racing...

I would like to know what makes the 450s more troublesome to maintain. And the valve adjustment argument won't work. The trx doesn't call for a valve job until about 250 hours.

i never said they are troublesome ///...simply just higher maintanace...being a high strung engine theres alot more wear and tear when it comes to racing it ...in most cases you'll rebiuld a 450 b4 a 700r...depending on the rider...for some the 450's never let them down tho...i guess it all depends on how you treat your bike...thats all i was trying to say i guess i should have clarified...lol:shocked:

I can live with that. Was just curious why you said that. I've heard others say the same thing but when you ask them why they have no reason. As far as oil changes and all that stuff, the 450 is just like in other machine. Depends how you ride it. So I can deal with your reason.

good enough..i know alot of people trash the 450's...i like them...my next bike will probably be a 450 but i want a efi...so hopefully in a few years yamaha makes the yfz a efi because im a yami boy...i just like the quality and reliability of my yami.

What really impresses me about 450's is how much smaller cc wise they are but they can still keep up with the big bores like the 700r...

      Hey all new to the forum.... We ended up picking up a 2006 Suzuki z50 quad sport and took it camping this weekend. The guy said had a new top end and just put on a new belt. Seem to work fine for a little bit and then it lost power at the rear wheels. Belt was not in bad shape took a look but it just did not seem to have enough power to get my little guy moving. I pick up the rear end tires would go. Set it down lacked all power.   Any help would be greatly appreciated it did run like a top also.      To add to the bad news on the way home I ended up losing the seat so if anybody has one even if it's in rough shape would love to get it or if you have any ideas open to suggestions......

      I have a 2005 Yamaha Kodiak 400 Automatic. It has an oil leak inside clutch cover. The middle gear has two oil seals, the front seal is leaking engine oil into clutch area. How do you change the leaking seal?

      Hello All,
      I have multiple Yamaha Timberwolfs, and I'm rebuilding a 92. I would like to replace the Ball Joints on the control arms. Does anyone know where I can purchase them? I don't want to purchase entire control arm. Ebay only has upper ball joints (Funny I don't see Upper Ball Joints, I have struts) and Cheap Cycle Parts, Partzilla and others don't even show the part number for the lower ball joint. There has to be something out there, these are just pressed in ball joints with castle nut and cotter pin.
      Please help cross reference. I have another Timberwolf I want to rebuild.

      doesn't idle at times but sometimes when it does as soon as I touch the throttle it just shuts off, what could possibly be the problem? I thank you very much for any help, Thanks.
