"I do mostly street racing and crusing"


are they street legal in FL? or are you doing some underground race shit?? if i were doing street racing and crusing i'd still stick with the raptor and take that $ for a 2nd bike and put some major mods in it. you have a great start already. and if you get rid of your rappy then put those parts up for sale before your do!!! :thumbsup:

I have a few buddies that have LTRs. They are'nt that cool unless you are track racing. Not that fast, too low for trails (and even sand sometimes).

yea the ltr450 isnt that nice looking. it looks plain to me
it looks like it got its looks from the yfz 450 to me. but they are pretty fast.

I do some street racing, but DAMN,, not that extreme,,unless someone else drops an R1 into their rappy around here, then I would have to go drop a busa engine in mine. :thumbsup:

My homeboy just got his ltr450 yesterday and its pretty serious shit..although some guy round here got one and ive raced him a couple of times and he does pull off the line a bit faster than me, once i hit 3rd im passing by him and 4th his way back hitting his brakes and making a u-turn..oh and yea he got exhaust and filter and knows his ride. But that bitch is still nice but wouldnt trade a 700 for it ever :crazy:

one of my friends that races got his yfz 450 custom built for racing. spent 23000 $ on it. he knows how to ride and is pretty good. well his friend got a new ltr 450 and got his set up for racing too. well my friend says they are about even until after the holeshot. then his friend on the ltr starts to pull away. but i agree with you, i wouldnt trade my raptor for one of them :thumbsup:.

I raced a ltr450 (with about 2 hours on it) with my 06 700 with pcIII and pro flow kit and 15t front sprocket, the ltr had cherry bomb and lid removed.. so it was a pretty fair race, but my 700 took it in every gear, by the time I got to 4th he may as well have just stopped...

Out of all of the new quads that came out in the last few years, the LTR didn't excite me at all........... ::)
When I heard it was 50" wide and had 18" tires I knew it was a track ONLY bike. Great for some but if you live in the midwest with tight tree lined trails it would'nt be worth a dam, IMO. I wish Suzi would come out with an LTZ450 with that motor somehow sqeezed onto a Z400 sized platform........now your talking! :thumbsup:
I drag raced quite a few LTRs out at St. Joe and I only had "1" that could trade wins with me and only "1" that I could NOT beat. Out of the 450s, I think the Yammys and the Hondos are both faster.
