That isnt true some people do race them MX and win against 450s, YFZs, etc... but it takes lots of $$$ and a real good rider.

the thing is, is that the yfz is great on anything, good on trails and racing, so u could take her out on the trails be4 the race, then go out and whhop up on everyone at a track. I would trade for a yfz if it was me, or i would look into a rappy 700 if i wasnt going to race.

Have you road a YFZ for any extended trailing period of time Reggie? A YFZ isn’t as comfy and they are sometimes too wide on the trails and have an awkward "powerband" for trailing. Also with water cooling and a more advanced motor the YFZ has much more reliability issues that can become an issue miles back in the woods (not to mention fuel)... The warrior is built like a tank and was designed for ripping up trails - the YFZ was designed for MX use. Two very different bikes with two very different goals in mind; Warrior and Raptors are kings of the woods as the YFZs and other 450s are the kings of the track.

Magazines said October. There is currently a disk that has a video of it. Only dealers get it and they can't let anybody look at it. I think it is really called the LT-450R. Suzuki is bringing back the Quad Racer.
