Ok so i have a 2006 YFZ 450 high comp piston, hot cams, different gears, and i only ride sand, i have raced a few LTR's and beat them all, sometimes it just comes down to experience, Its hard to say which is better, if your comparing a 2009 YFZ and LTR i would go with the YFZ as a better bike not necessarily faster... LTR's are very fast and with a cherry bomb and exhast you should be able to beat most bikes even slightly modded ones, in the sand it can come down to little things, gearing, tires, lots of stuff so its hard to say whats fasater and i mean rider weight can also be big factor, i hope this helps or maybe i just confused you...lol well check out my crews riding video our youtube our channel is spartanracing43 you won't be dissapointed leave some feedback.

The LTR will accelerate faster with the 18" rears. They are pretty equal on top speed.

Whoever told you that the YFZ dominates everything is wrong. All of the 450s are within 2-3 mph of each other.

but what about the yfz extra valve wouldnt that give it equal accelaration with the ltr?...and im not sayin the yfz is the best it has flaws like the stock exahust is corkin the engin more then the other 450s and for some reason the bolts always snap off of not just the yfz but all sport yamahas 4 some reason

STOOPIDBOT!!!! not tryin 2 be a prick but in dirt wheels mag yfz top speed was 78.8mph with the fastest (even more then the ktm450xc!!! at 74mph) and the trx 450 with the slowest at 69.5mph but it accelerated one of the fastest of the start and had the most reliable engine with the best fit and confort

What is funny to me is that the Honda, although going through no significant changes since '06, actually got slower. In the August '07 issue sitting next to me on the shelf it has the Honda pegged at 72.9 mph. That alone is enough to make me suspect of what DW publishes.

........idk but i have found errors in dirt wheels like in one of the issues it said the yfz had 4 valves.....all i know is mine didnt have 4 sooo good point mabee there was a heavy rider in my issue or mabee tested in different terain where the tires dont hook up as good idk i guess its impossible to get an exact top speed

It could definately be that they put a 400lb rider on the Honda and a 160lb rider on everything else. You would think that you would put the same rider on each bike for acceleration and top speed comparisons, that is, if you wanted to publish a non-biased article giving an accurate comparison between different products. Fact is, I have heard the expression "Yamawheels" more than once. Alot of people seem to think that they have tendency to favor Yamaha. I don't really have an opinion myself, but where there is smoke, there is usually fire. For the record I think that Yamaha makes a great product and always has, the YFZ was my first choice when I was shopping for a new ATV, but I found the best deal on an LTR so that is what I bought. The Yamaha may very well be capable of the speed that dirtwheels claims, they have a fancy new type of igniton that may be capable of getting a few more RPM's out of the motor. The part that I think is wierd is the Honda only going 69mph.

I promise you the TRX does more than 69. Mine is piped/intake and jetted. I out run the DS450's(with comparable upgrades) on the 1 mile straights in my races.

DirtDemon i think 73mph is right but in my june 2009 issue i looked and same 1 guy test all of the machines on the drag it says they used a magellan gps for those numbers so i think the problem is in the other issues they probly used a different method of testing speed or a craper gps......STOOPIDBOT also i was doin some reaserch and found out that on the 06 and 07 models have worse steering then the earlier models i forget what their called butt in the newer models they made the top of the front wheels tilt in and making it feel jaring

I know it does, my usual riding buddy rides an '08 TRX it would run almost dead even with my LTR on top speed when they were both completely stock.

First, the Can Am DS450 does not come with Fox Shocks, that is Polaris. Second, the Rotax motor puts out impressive numbers, they do not have a slouch of a motor.

I know that the 04-05 TRX450s had better steering geometry than the 06+. The 04-05's were also slower by about 2mph, but they have an external oil cooler. That is why desert racers generally choose the 04-05, runs cooler.

ur buddys trx and ur ltr were tied at top speed butt i bet ur ltr tosted it in exeleration(cant spell lol)....right? from its small tires

Not really, the small tires come with higher gearing. Also, it is harder to get traction with the small tires, so the Honda probably accellerates quicker in some cases because it gets better traction. The only real advantage to the smaller tires is better cornering because the quad sits lower. That only helps when riding on a track. The firs thing I did to my LTR, was put bigger tires on it. I ride mostly in the woods, so I need a little more ground clearance. The bigger tires required lower gearing, so I went down 1 tooth on my front sprocket to compensate. Also, I don't know for sure that my LTR was not going a tad faster or slower than the TRX, I am just saying that the Honda kept right up with my LTR, there is no way there is a 4 or 5 mph difference between the two.

      Hi All,
      Want to show you one automotive show that I filmed in my town called Crazy Race. This was two day race in Qualifications round, Semifinals and Final. In this 4 parts I am showing best moments from all rounds and entertainment of the show.
      Crazy Race Part 2 contains a qualifying round where all riders race against each other, selected by lot and split by two. They are free to drive in any direction and to hit their opponent's car everywhere except at the driver's door. Anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified. Winner of each race continue in the semifinal round. In this part I will present the best moments of the qualifying round! 
       
      Part 3 shows you the best moments from Day 2 - Semifinals and Final. Battles in the semifinals are among the winners of the first day races, but this time they are selected by lot and divided into 4 battles of 4-5 cars each. The rules in each battle are that they only have to drive in one direction and try to neutralize other opponents until there are only two players left. Then the battle between the two last drivers has the rule to drive in any direction until only one who has qualified for the final round is left. Again, anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified.
      For the final round there were only two cars left, because the other two players who got the right to be there had problems with their car and could not participate.
       
      Part 4 containing entertainments between battles and winners rewarding.
      This event will have second round in 05-06 October 2019 and also will be filmed  For this new round I will filmed in many new angels and places. Will prepare a lot more videos and many new entertainments . This 4 videos was my first try so many things to wish for better filming in the future one.
      Hope you will like them and of course feel free to comment and to ask everything. Hope you will Subscribe to my channel and to be first to see my other content and of course new round of Crazy Race! Thanks!

      Safety Is A Concern For Kids ATVs
      The family is into racing ATVs and now the children want to get in on the action. How do you start with someone who is too young to drive a car, but yet sees other children their own age charging through the woods racing an ATV? A tough decision for parents, but with a lot of planning and instruction your kids ATV can become a reality.
      Safety should be your first concern before getting the kids ATVs for their own use. You should plan on doing your research to make sure that you get the best kids ATV available for their age group and size. The research should include surfing the web and also by reading Consumer Reports—both of these will provide you with a tremendous amount of information on kids ATVs.
      It is recommended that the youngest kid ATV riders should have an ATV that has an engine with no more than 4.3 cubic inches. There are not too many choices at this size for kids ATVs, but you want to ensure that your child is not riding a machine that it too large for them to handle.
      As a concerned parent, you should check into the ATV Safety Institute. This group offers safety courses all over the country. The experienced instructors will teach you and your kids about pre-ride inspections, warm up exercises, braking, turning, and shifting. They also teach you about clutch and throttle control and about the importance of body position and simple maintenance. In addition they cover riding techniques and how to tackle obstacles, hills and different kinds of trails. All of these issues are important safety issues for your kids ATV riding.
      So, what are the features will your kid's ATV have? One company has an experienced team of ATV enthusiasts that work with you on your kids ATV to hand select the perfect one. Each ATV they have is designed with safety in mind and they offer a 4-point safety system which includes a throttle limiter, an emergency kill switch, a safety kill tether and a remote kill key. The kid ATVs are safe and they come with a 4 stroke engine, headlights, an electric start and disk brakes. This company that focuses on safety with kid ATVs is Motorxtremes. They want to make sure that every kids ATV is safe and that the rider follows all safety precautions.
      You should make sure that your kids ATV comes with all of the necessary additional safety equipment to make their ride as safe as possible. Every kid ATV rider should have a helmet with a full-face cover, goggles to keep dirt out of their eyes, gloves with finger and knuckle guards, a shirt with long sleeves and safety pads for their chest, shoulders, elbows and knees.
      Make sure you and your children know the rules of riding ATVs. While you can not ensure that your kids ATV rides will be completely accident free, you can help them by providing the best additional safety equipment available.
