    Yeah Yamaha sleeved it to make it within Race standards.


    It's a fast MOFO I'll tell you that. They are smoking everything at the dunes. I don't care for the feel of it...(It's small feels like a Blaster /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif), but I could get used to it. I like my Raptor still /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I want one but can't afford it right now. My buddy has a 2004 I've ridden its sick! First time I took it out I cracked it in second gear and pulled the front end up. I kept running out of field before I hit 5th gear. Has a race pipe on it too, sounds awesome. I found that when you are barely moving(like 5mph) it turns like a suburban, but when you get moving it carves and turns on a dime.

    i know 3 people who race them, they all love em, one bought it, then spent $2000 immediately on suspension /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif and is doin well for a beginner racer, the other crashed his pretty bad on his first/second race, and just got it running, but is still healing his broken collar bone, the third has ridden the 450's, and just bought one a couple days ago, they all say they're the best ride around, but im sorta clueless with these things
