Bro i have had mine for almost a year now and have around 50 or so hours on it. I havent had one problem with it beside me hitting shit with it. Oh i have the 06 SE so its the fastest by far of any of the raptors. its the yellow that makes it fast. LMAO -- WOODY
Two words.... BUY IT. I have one, its my first quad i've owned. I've ridden others but this thing is just a torque and speed monster. Fun in the dirt... I am going to sand in May, im sure this will just confirm even more that this was the right purchase. 8)
I'd say it depends on you, your experience and responsibility. I have a KFX400 (same as the LTZ400) and a Raptor. The rappy is in a whole different league when compared to a 400, and they can get you in trouble if your not capable of handling the power/speed.
With that being said, after riding the Raptor for the first/second day camping I got on the 400 and pulled a hill, got back down, gave it back to the wife and said this thing needs some performance upgrades, got back on the raptor and took off.
