For your stature at age 14, I would suggest a raptor 700. You probably would not like a yfz, you are too tall.

2015 700Rse
Fci, PC5F/I, monster exhaust, +2 Cuervo head, HDD5150, 54mm throttle body, 105.5 14:1, +8 swingarm.
08 yfz450se
Sparks big core, k&n no lid, yz needle, yz timing mod, +4 swingarm.
“Peepshow”
Cuervo 870, lectron, msd, monster megs, single a-arm lightened chasis, +14 swingarm.
”Monarchy”
Cuervo 930, lectron, msd, db fab titanium chasis.

I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up!

If you only want to beat him, then get a 450. If you want to get a bike to fit your height and future growth then get the 700. BUT, you may need to do some mods too make the 700 faster.

Also totally depends on what type of riding you do. A 700 slightly modified wins in a drag race. If you are riding a track, it's very hard to beat a good rider on a 450.

I was 14 maybe 100lbs.. and after a few months on my warrior 22hp just was not enough...I'm 140lbs/25 now with around a 45hp 660 and its not enough power lol.

Crashing a big heavy 4x4 can be just as dangerous as crashing a yfz450 or a raptor 350,660,700.. especially at the same speed. IMO..... now learning to drive a clutch on a yfz 450 or big bore raptor can be dangerous.

If dad says so, your stuck. Is he paying for it? Wait until you're 18, and have a job so you can get what you want.
