All of you mx racers or even trail riders, how does the yfz corner, i read it slides easy, and that sound like a major plus, i raced a 400ex with a LOBO front end and PEP ZPS last season and i never did well in the corners, i didnt have enough power to slide it, so i pretty much had to either drive the corner or tap the brake to set up. I know i had the right bike otehr than the engine, i think more power will help me break out of the corners a little better, a controled slide if you will. So do you think i am right? Because all around i dont see anywhere wher this quad will be inferior to my 17K$ 400ex, other than the suspension plushness, which might be cureable, and the seat...concrete....i cant wait to get it back out on the track where i used to get passed in the straights and show them boyz the power of BLUE!!

It corners awesome! These tires are incrediable. They hook up but you can power slide them. It handles berms and flat turns awesome!

I dont want to preach to the choir but the point of getting through a turn faster than the other guy comes from not breaking traction. You want to drive through the corner not slide. :sucks hehehehhehehe ahahahhahahahahhha damn I am funny. Anyways, I just would like to say that the YFZ is better than my full Laeger R and my full LSR R.

when you go in low, its best to break traction and slide it out cus of the tighter turning radius.

bustin a berm you don't want it to slide...... :nono

I find that on mine the front end lifts alot. I have a corner on my track that is a little rough, and I can't keep the front end down no matter where I sit on the bike. Its just to powerfull.

All I know is that the turning feels more controlled than any other bike I've ridden, but I'm surprised you say the 400EX doesn't slide well enough. I've ridden a couple of them and I always thought they slid too much, I had a hard time keeping them on the line I was trying to stay in.

I had the plus 1 forward aarms and the plus 1 out swingarm on it, and i think thats why it was funny...

Rode the yfz today and my thoughts are it definantly needs to be wider and lower, and then it will corner like no other
