The only reason I bought a 700 over the 450r is I wanted turbo
I would love a 450r with a banshee motor probably be my next project

That would be so much awesome. I hated the suspension on my banshee and loved the suspension on my 450 but really missed the 80hp of the banshee.

Haha my thoughts exactly even with Elka's and long travel on my shee it was a crap in the trails but once it hit power band you just had to hold on for the ride

Plus the 80hp banshee motor is half the price of a 80 HP 450r motor

What type of riding do you do?
If you've been on a raptor and running with a bunch of 450s, you already know the major differences and advantages/disadvantages.

Just keep in mind the new raptors have more power than the 450s and much better suspension than any previous model raptor.

You are talking about a YFZ450R and not a Honda 450R right.

Damn you, this is all I have been thinking about today. I thought I had this out of my system but instead I have been searching for yfz450 frames for sale.
