Yeah, with the right gearing and mods! But in stock trim! Every quad has it's spot... XX: showroom floor... 700R: dunes & trails... 450's: track...

Stock for stock i think a raptor would be a bit faster then a honda 450r, but any of the other 450's like the new YFZ450R and the LTR450 would beat the crap out of a raptor stock vs stock. And also, the 700XX would be MUCH better then a raptor on trails because of the IRS, so it would be a much smoother ride.

Hmm, I would think the Raptor would be easier to manuver in tight trails, due to reverse, and it is physicaly smaller...

You can also whip it around trees easier....

Stock vs stock on what? This is stupid... Are we talking sand, dirt, uphill, downhill or concrete WTF?

The only way a 700XX would beat a 700 raptor (Both stock) would be down a steep hill were the EXTRA 90 LBS would come in on the XX... So if you ride downhill all the time hmm might be a good choice..

Like my grandpa always said... "When I was a kid we walked to school uphill in 4 foot of snow both ways" Thats BS And we all know that we don't ride downhill all the time.

Also same tires VS same tires one atv (If it weighs more) will be affected differently. IT COULD be for better or worse... Heavy would hook up on dirt better and get out quicker? BUT On concrete that is 100% flat AKA a good drag strip is the TRUE test.

So who ever has the balls to put down some $ on their stock XX I will go get a stock raptor and we will take it to a strip and switch riders...

Or if you wanna do it for fun thats cool to :D

OR we could stop arguing about which one is faster in a drag because that is almost pointless unless ALL you do is drag race. Also i never said the 700XX would beat a raptor, i seriously have no idea which one would win.

Okay.... I have a question... why are they rare? There aren't any active members on here that have a XX, and you just dont see them around?!?!?! Hmm, they are cheaper, if they are better... and cheaper than the Raptor... wouldnt they be plentiful?

I think its because they have only been out since what 2008? Where as the raptor has been out since 2006 and then the 660 was out for a while before that so people already new about it and what not. Its the same thing with the KFX450, it has only been out since 2008 and not many people have them because of that but its still a great quad.

But wouldnt you think that there would be alot of XX's out there since they are like $500 cheaper for MSRP and are way better??? *rolls eyes*

Idk, In my opinion they aren't better, they are different. Plus i bet a lot of people dont like IRS so they buy the raptor

Either you like irs or u dont i went from a kfx700 to a 700xx in a drag race the 700xx is not the fastest however in rocky rutted nasty stuff my my 700xx can keep up with the dirt bikes in my group. From what i have read the ltron8 sway bar gives the xx a more solid axel feel. The xx is not a good quad for jumping and when you launch it it does not allways go strait. The best part about the quad is that doesent beat you up...

      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?
