I'm no longer an official member of the RaptorForum

I got a 05 YFZ450!!!!!

I rode a 05 Raptor with plenty of mods before. Today we were at a large swap meet and I saw the yfzfor sale. I saw one earlier same year and color for $4200. I asked how much and the guy said $2200. I almost shat my pants, and attempted to keep a straight face. I looked it over, had obviously been rolled once or twice as there were scratches on all edges of the fenders. The grab bar was above the rear plastic, obviously someone had been riding wheelies a little too high. I asked him to fire it up and he said battery was dead. We pushed started it and started after 4 tries since the compression was so high. Sounded great and loud. Pretty sure it came with a spark arrestor stock but it didnt have one so it was loud. Rode it for a minute and didnt even get out of second and almost shat myself again. So $2200 it was.

Got her home and rode around for a bit and I think i did shit myself. This thing is a beast!!!!! Still didnt even get to top of second either.


It has its small issues, such as levers and bolts ,small carb tuning and scratches but I love it!!!

Anyone want to buy a Raptor 350?

Also my Dad took the 350 so its his. The YFZ is mine. He can sell the Raptor for more and make money off of it since he paid the money for the YFZ. Some of the money that gets is going towards safety stuff too, which I already have picked out.

Nerf bars with heel guards
bumper
kill switch

Not sure actually. The guy owns a HUGE dealership and said he had the title just not with him. He had a trailer full of stuff already sent back to the dealer and the yfz would probably not fit on the next trailer as he had other stuff to load up too.

yeah, just to be sure ide get the vin and call your state police with it and have them run it through their database, its probably good, but just think a year down the road after u dump tons of money into it, then it gets taken from you because it was hot all along, that would be a huge kick in the nuts. congrats though

05 720 stroker... its my fully built trail beater, and i love it
