I beat one on the drags in Pismo w/ my Raptor. His was stock and I think he did not know how to ride it though.

sorry to say but stock for stock the honda is faster. i am not sure on top speed but in a drag the honda's are fast.
:wtf: The 450r sucks stock.. you need to get the HRC kit before you do anytime of racing. Stock for stock the raptor should own it.

not even close the honda 450r is a slouch when its stock
the bike has no "hit" anywhere in the power curve
but the thing winds out and its a smooth engine :nod:
plus the suspension rocks it lands real nice
but its still a slouch any way you look at it :zzz:

I raced two 450R's today on my raptor. I have a sparks pipe, airbox lid cut, Pro Design filter kit. One of them had the HRC kit. I beat them both everytime by 2-4 lengths depending on which one I was racing, one of them was stock. This was on sand aprox. 350-400ft. We all had paddles. I know for sure the YFZ owns the 450R, it is not even close stock, or piped.

I always beat my friends by like 1 quad leanth or he beats me by a quad leanth Its always real close. we both have curtis sparks pipes and pro flow filters the only diff in aftermarket parts is he has a hot cam. Its always a very close race. If you drag good you should be able to take him :tup:

My 01 craptor broke down this weekend at the dunes, so i rode my dads 450r :tup: . I love that thing. The suspension is great and it launches beautifully. It has a full Fat Boy 4 Exhaust from duncan and jetted/ filter. That thing runs like a dream. I smoked every raptor i raced up the hill. They couldnt even come close. I would beat them by atleast 4 bikes. Also i raced on the flats and the 450r is about 5-7 mph faster then the raptor. ( the raptor i was raacing on the flats had a slip on/ Pro-Design Filter kit, Jet kit ) And i was smoking all the raptors at the hill. Even got me a piped banshee :nod: . I was really suprised how easy it was to get used to and to control. I like the low feeling of it and i can pull thoose fronts up no problem. Ended up fliping it in a burm since it had rained and the rutts were really deep. No damage though. Only a broken flag. The 450r is really underrated :razz: . I would say i like it better then my rappy and if i had the money i would buy one.
