ok i need this question answer quickly before i might make a fool of myself. my friend is picking up a 2008 honda recon 420 tomarrow and i dont know if i should race him or not. im pretty sure i would beat him but just going here to have some questions answered first.

1) obviously, he will beat me on the trails. but any hint on how to outrun him making him feel like an idiot?

2) any mods i might want to get before i race him? nothing toooo expensive

3)do you think i will win or not? im a pretty good rider and he used to have a big bear 400 that he rode like once a month and never got out of 3rd gear, so hes not the greatest rider. like they say. its the rider that wins the race, not the bike

Im not a Quad guy....Thats pretty well known......LOL....

However,,,,,Ive been around Lots of Blasters.....Most of them Modded to the hilt....Not sure if Ive ever been near a Stock one..... Anyway,,,, 400cc 4 Stroke Vs. 200CC 2 Stroke Motor to motor is pretty Even.....Now add the Weight of Rider and The rest of the Quad and there is where you will Gain....Lots of Races are Won in the HOLESHOT.....Straight line races that is.....I think you will take it.....

Just remember......To make it fair....Have a 3rd person Do the Hand Drop.....and another at the end to Judge......:yes:

300Ft is a Common Drag length for ATV's...:wink:

This will have nothing to do with your current issue but a K&N style filter lets larger particles through. You should run a pre filter. It is just a bag that goes over your filter.

What kind of oil do you run? As long as it's 2 stroke oil that you are mixing I don't think it would make it bog. Will it start, does it idle or immediately start bogging down?

castrol snowmobile oil. im pretty sure it wont make a difference. it starts on the 1-3 kick and it has no idle and when i start going, it bogs alotttt until i get into 2nd gear and start really ripping it.
