You're not adding rider skill to the equation.. Stock for stock I was putting 400s to bed all day long. In no way am I putting the 400 down.

He is just as good a rider as I am. On the trails with everyone we ride there is no one faster over me and him. Now my cousin on his 450R LMAO dont get me started he shoulda bought a 200ex

My dad is even getting better. these were not completely stock machines at the time I had a white bro's full and he had a HMF slipon and I had a UNI airfilter and he had something in his. Other than jetting that was the only thing done to them at the time.

All I ride is XC style stuff. If he upped his RPM's he would beat me a bit farther his rev's out in fifth mine dont hit the full 9100 RPM.

That was my point. The 450 Revs higher and has more gear.I think the full system vs. the slip-on played a roll in how close you were.

yup rev's higher and if its a kick start it will rev faster as well. it might had played a role in it but I dont think it could be much.

another idea. what would a outlaw 525 be like? I've heard that their better at trails than tracks. Is that a big difference from the 400/450?

The Outlaw 525 is a fast machine but it would get eaten by 450's on a track because of the weight issue, and the IRS does not allow for the same kind of maneuvering that you would need to win on an MX track. In a drag race, I think it would keep up with anything out there with the exception of the KTM and the Outlaw S, which use the same motor and a solid axle rear end, so they are alot lighter. It is an excellent trail machine, and like I said the ride is incredible, that is without a doubt the machine I would choose if I needed something that was kinder to my aching body.

      Greetings,
      I have a 1998 Yamaha big bear 350, new to this. When its cold it is very difficult to shift. Once its warm its ok, however, my old feet don't like the shifting. I saw on ebay a hand shifter conversion kit. Any advice, I live in the Low Country of SC no hills, I use the machine around the farm for corning and scouting.
      Thanks,
      Jim

      Long story short, I have an lt160 with a quad racer swingarm. It needs new front pivot bearings. Whoever swapped the swingarm used pipe and stacks of washers to space it but it still seemed to have quite a bit of play. My question is how would I go about spacing it more "legit"?. It's just going to be a beater for around the farm but I don't want it totally cob jobbed. From the looks of it, it's just a matter of aligning it, measuring and finding something to shim the gaps. Correct me if I'm wrong or if there's a better or proper way to go about this. Also not sure what I would use for spacers. Any help/tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Found and 1986 lt160f that has had the head removed. Firstly, the engine has sat outside in the elements for a long period of time. The timing chain is rusty but their appears to little or water in the oil. Do you think that it is worth salvaging and if so, what would you do to motor to remove the rust. Thanks
