Just Like the subject says. Is there anyone that could give their opinions on the 2? Currently have an 08' pretty built. (Houser +2 a arms,durablue axle, Elka stage 3's all the way around, port/polished top end, exhaust, intake) you name it. How would you rate comparing the older yfz similar to my upgrades to the EFI in all aspects? Let's say with just an exhaust, intake, & tune. Worth the extra money? Wish I knew somebody with one nearby to try it out!
Where it really matters to me besides the EFI and Carb, are the measurement of these bikes. I race against a 14R with my 08 Carb and his handles a little better in the corners, which is notable in the videos I've been taking. But I've only been on my yfz for 3 race now and he's been on his for a year before. Things might even put here a little bit. The mods between our bikes are almost identical, where as he has a full gytr system, vortex, port work, and gytr high compression, carb cam. I'm sitting on a slip on, full intake, 14:1 compression, Dasa port job, stock cams. We got a chance to brag race last Saturday twice. When we crossed the line it was so close every time that we couldn't tell who won if it wasn't for the light. Gonna mod my cam this weekend to suck a little more power out of the bike now and match my bike width to his to see if it helps with my tight corner handling.
Carbs have made more power back in the day, not real sure about that anymore though.
On a note when we raced I won once he won once, it was all won on the light.
