One of my buddies bought a newer Polaris Predator 500 today and called me to tell me he was coming over to rape the Raptor. My Raptor is bone stock. His predator has slip on big gun exhaust,carb jetting,K&N, and extended swingarm. He also told me the previous owner said it would do 90 to 100. I was under the impression with all of these parts it could get ugly for the raptor. Boy was I wrong!! We raced several times and from each gear as well. Everytime same thing. I pulled on him pretty good. We also made a top speed run in fifth and since my bike does 75 (with my gps ) I even pulled on top so we figured he was doing around 70. It was a really nice bike but just not enough for the raptor. Thought id share.

He also said he had a cam. This bike had a ton of stickers , just not enough ass. Im a big boy 255 and he is around 240 . So it was a even weight race to the best of my knowledge.

The pred 500 was closer to a stock 660, but IMO the 660 had a significant edge when both had bolt ons. With those mods I would think you would have a close race but it sounds like you made out quite well. Nice job :thumbsup:

We just made another run and the fucker flipped his behind me at 65. I think his chain broke and wrapped around the Axle . His wife just left with him going to the E.R. I think he may have a bad case of the road rash along with a broke arm and shoulder. Kepp him your prayers to those of you that pray.

I have the race on video and I was fucking with him riding a wheelie while we were racing. Another 1/16 of a mile and I heard something and turned around to see him flipping over and over. He was completely dazed asking where he was, who he was , who was I and shit like that. So I made him jump on the bike with me and I ran to my house then went back with my wife and towed his bike home.

The video is of just us racing and we go around a curve and after that the magic happens. I just pieced it all back together as good as I can. He will have to get a new set of handlebars, chain, ball joints, pull bar, light frame, and a few pieces here and their. I just talked to his wife and he's getting a cat scan at the moment.

I just talked to him on the phone, he's ok. He hurt his shoulder and road rash. He said he almost had me. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA He must be Paul Walker from Fast and the Furious. I told him we will put his chain back on for another run if he wants. Tie wire his ball joint and duct tape his handle bars. TONIGHT!!!!!!

My buddy has an '05 Preddy LE with a White Bros. slip on and no limiter.

I've raced him on several occasions and always won up until my limiter kicked in. But the victory was no more then a few quads.

That was also totally stock with rear tires reversed and he has razr 2's and we were on soft sand ..
