6 people who ride yamahas told you that. I will give the raptor is better in the dunes. But how can you say that its better all around? Especially in any kind of rough terrain the raptor has about 4" of clearance and the xx has about 9 I think. Good luck keeping up on a raptor. Itp makes a 10" wheel for the xx which solves any tire finding issue.

The 700XX is is 90lbs more, and how many XX's do you see on the track. I have never saw any, and why would you think a XX would win in a drag? I have saw stockers race 300' and the XX lost by alot, and I have saw Big 3 bikes race, 700R blows it away!?!?!?!

If your going to be riding on rough trails Why not go with a utility quad. To me a sport quad is more for tracks & open fast trails. The best of both worlds one be to own a utility & sport atv. Like I said before each style of quad has it's advantages & disadvantages You need to find what works for you we can all give our input but your the one who will be riding it. Test ride them both see what you like and dislike about each one either way you go Honda & Yamaha are great quads. It's not always about which one will out run the other one unless you plan on racing and then you need to check what upgrades are out there for each quad and compare which one would make the better racing machine. The newer utility atv's handle well and are fast quads too. The top speeds are close between the too a sport just gets their a little faster. On an mx track a sport is going to come out on top but for playing in the rough a good 4x4 utility is hard to beat. So just do your research and choose whats best for you.

Okay... same motor specs: 686cc, XX weighs 90lbs more, XX tires are 2" taller, 1" taller, and a larger gas tank. So, duh, the XX is going to be faster, because of the 22" tires, put some 20's on it and I bet the Raptor would beat it on top speed. I could put 35's on my 350 and have a higher top speed than a 610 Cheetah Banshee! The Yamaha people are saying Raptor and the Honda people are saying XX. I can pull up all kinds of kill stories on R vs. XX's. The Raptor wins in many more catagories than the XX. Put a XX on the track and tell me how fun it it. IMO, the XX is 75% utility, has the weight, suspension, and comfort of a utility. And, I have a hard time believing that it was the fastest production quad of 2009. What about the 800 Renny? Or the Arctic Cat ThunderCat H2? The only reason people give me a hard time is because I am 13.

LMFAO, let's break down your statement and see why no one takes you serious...

"XX weighs 90lbs more, XX tires are 2" taller, 1" taller, and a larger gas tank"

Why and how would the XX being 90lbs more and a larger gas tank make it faster?

Why would we put 20" tires on a XX to slow it down so the raptor can keep up in stock form?

Put 35's on your little 350 and watch how fast you blow your tranny.. I have plenty of pics of a XX on an MX track. They do just fine.

Stick with your little Raptor 350 and keep dreaming and drewling about the precious Raptor 700:laugh: Learn more about other machines, other than what you read onthe Raptor forum then we will talk

Can we see some pics of those XX's on the track? I wanna see them! I am not brand loyal, as long as it looks good, and runs good. I like the 450R, the LTR, but there is something about the XX... eeewww...

I am not sticking with the 350 either, I need something a little different for what I do. Hmm, maybe I should get a XX...

Hey man, it's cool. I'm just sayin' the Raptor is the best 700 out there. Just look at them! The XX is like a Bat Mobile that was in a accident, and someone glued it together with a bunch of Elmer's glue lol. Wow, that is alot of pics! That is like jumping a Cadillac! Is that your 450R... pretty sweet looking! I spend pretty much all day reading DirtWheels, and reading on different forums, I am quite educated when it comes to quads... that is about it though lol.

You know comparing a IRS atv to a solid axle atv is kinda stupid anyway, they are whole different machines. Get the xx if you ride trails, get the raptor if you ride dunes, if you race they are probably about the same (Not that great compared to a 450) Simple as that

People fail to realize that the XX was the fastest production quad in 09 @ 77 mph.

^ :laugh: Really? Thats weird... Considering the 700R (Stock) On a concrete drag strip @ 2000FT will go 82...

Hmm, ^ Raptor guy? Cool Avatar?

Yes, And thank you...

I loved the raptors from the start. And became abscessed with them once after market companies started manufacturing parts for them.

      I picked up a 1997 Yamaha Big Bear 350 2X4 a week or so back in non running condition, apparently they said it needed a new carburetor or a battery, I cleaned the carburetor thoroughly and got it running on idle and without choke now and it shifts into all the gears even into reverse. Aside from making me bounce a little when trying to start out with a bit of throttle the shock suffice to say needs work. Anyways I made a video of it running and would like your opinions on it, as to how it sounds while running. It seems like it has a little whine I'm not sure why that is maybe someone can tell me what it is. Anyways here is the video.

      Newbie to this forum and to riding. Looking to buy my very first atv and I have a budget and prefer new since I don't want to buy someone else's junk. A place a couple if hours from me has some 2013 kymco wheelers on clearance to make room for 2014 models. So he has a 450i mxu 4x4 for $4,500. 450i maxxer 4x4 for $5k. And a 500i mxu 4x4 for $4,800. That's his OTD price I pay taxes and registration on my own.
      Since this is my first wheeler I don't want to spend more that $5k and these have a 1 year warranty and I can extend it to 6 years for $850. The guy says these are just arctic cats for 20 percent less. According to him they have been making 500 and smaller atvs for arctic cat and Kawasaki for years now.
      I'm really just going to use this to plow and do trail riding. Any experience with them?
