2002 raptor 660 vs honda 450r

Hmmm. I've owned both. My old 660 had a slip-on, and a HotCam 1, lid off and rejetted (of course). I would get beat by yfz's with slip-ons and cam mods, as well as trx's with pipe/cam mods racing...

Ltr 450 vs. Trx 450

The problem with stock vs. stock is that nobody races mx on stock machines. It's kinda pointless to make that comparison.

Once you compare race modded vs. race modded, all the 450's are...

The 15 hour piston change is what Honda recommends on the '06. Whether you have the HRC kit or not, it's about piston wear and that comes from rpm and time. You can go longer but you just lose...

Best advice is to just attend a few races near you, see what the other racers are using - mainly the novice and intermediate level guys. The beginners might have put stuff on that they don't need,...

2006 450r popping

Popping is a lean pilot issue or an air leak. You can adjust your fuel screw to richen it up if you're all stock. You didn't take the airbox lid off and ride it without rejetting did you???

YFZ 450 vs. BANSHEE What one would you buy.

You should never have to pay full MSRP, unless it's ahot new model and you're just dying to get one. I just picked up my 450ER for $6290 OTD and MSRP is $6799.

Why not get the HRC kit and a slip-on? Seems like the best of both worlds. I am a strong proponent for the WB E2 silencer. Also, the HRC kit can be bought on eBay for way less than $375...
