According to www.yamaha-motor.com the new '09 models will be released on June 6th at 12 PM eastern.

Any thoughts on what's coming out, ie... FI YFZ450, new color schemes, any Raptor 700 improvements...

Ya gotta think if the YFZ450 ever comes out with FI, it should be faster then our Raptors, stock vs. stock.

There were rumours at one stage that Suzuki was bringing out 750cc sport quads, wonder if Yamaha will up the stakes and shove in a BIGGER motor....the frame can handle it:banana:

YOU ARE AWFULLY OPINIONATED! One's preconcived notions are not the opinion of everyone!
That's good, because I am pretty sure I didn't say I was speaking for everyone when I said that "REAL SPORTS QUADS DON'T HAVE INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSIONS..." I was mearly stating how I felt.

or winches or fenders or skid plates?? Some of you sandbox riders piss me off..Who the hell are you to say that just because playing in a sand box takes no tallent..That everyone elses Raptors are not sport quads because we rig ours for the type of riding we do..I think Johnny baja should shut his mouth...Don't like opinions dont type asshole...You have a big mouth for someone that cant even change his oil without ruining your motor...:banghead:

Im having fun with this one. I ride a lot of trails, So the IRS would be cool, however I believe IRS is better off on a utility quad due to weight and what not. I would ride a lot more dunes if I could, however I live in Massachusetts and there really isnt a whole lot of desert here. I do what I can, but hell, a mud pit isnt going to stop me (well hopefully not)
