Not if it's tricked!!!
I have a tricked out 2007 raptor 700 and i want to know if i will lose to a stock 2006 trx 450 ?
Tricked out mean performance parts or a bunch of heavy bolt-on-bling?
Even if you are stock, you should be able to take him in a drag race if you can ride. A buddy of mine had an 06 450r with a pipe, intake and jetted and we raced hundreds of times on the dunes back when my Raptor was stock...I would get him every time and it drove him nuts. The following year, he went to a 488 bbk, higher comp piston, and HC2...and I went to a 3 mod with barkers. We raced over and over, and I was still beating him every time . He couldn't believe it....it really drove him crazy because he is about 50lbs lighter than I am, and he thinks his quad "feels" faster...just how the 450's rev out I guess.
He really planned on smoking me this year, went ahead and got a P&P head with +1 valves, different cam and a better intake...he was trying to keep it quiet until he came over one night and saw my new build. No point in even racing him anymore, won't be a contest.
Well if you sprung all that cash for your "trick kit" then theres no way he can beat you. Ive never been able to beat a raptor that was tricked since I havent manned up and got that kit yet.
No way will the 450 win. I had one 6 months ago with a pipe, intake and hc2 and would lose everytime to my buddies raptor and it just had a pipe. Hence why I sold that crap and got my rappy:)
they call me TATER SALAD
