Is my raptor a single cylinder or a twin. A guy from work said his was a twin and his was a 2002 660( same as mine) and his was a twin. I'm almost 100% positive mine is a single but it has two carbs and two exhaust ports. If 660s are a twin then what you suspect mine to be. Is there a difference between the 660 and the 660r?

no difference between the 660 and 660r. they are all the same. he probably has a banshee....350 twin. and if he does have a raptor, then he is mistaken since it's not a twin

EVERY Yamaha Raptor EVER made, from 90's to 700's, from the 1990's thru 2011, have always been single cylinders.

I'd suggest your work mate knows VERY little about his own quad and assumes that since it has two carbs, it has two cylinders... I'd also suggest that you don't listen to any of his suggestions related to the Raptor or to his mechanical expertise.

In your buddy's defense, it's not the first time I've heard the question asked from an onlooker. Though it would be the first time I had heard it from someone who owned one for any length of time.

Maybe the previous owner swapped a Banshee motor into it.

If that guy can't tell the difference just by the different SOUND the two bikes make, he should be kicked in the head.
