Looking at my local dealers website they already have two "little" reviews posted from buyers. Might have to swing by there today and take a look.

Take them for there worth. There comments are:

This is a great bike. I work for a atv dealership. We tested both the YZ450 and the Raptor. They are both great bikes, the YFZ will beat the Raptor in about a 250-300ft. stretch, but there is not replacement for displacement. The 660 begins to breathe on the top end and slowly but surley creeps by the 450. However, the 450 will out handle the top heavy 660 with is lowered stance and aggressive shocks.
i got my new yfz 450 about 3 days ago and i took work off to ride this machine. me and my buddies decided to put it to the test and race our friends z and raptor, i killed the z and bear the raptor by about 15 yds. it also handles awesome and is great for jumps because it is sooooooo light and the suspension is unbelieveable. i think this quad will replace all the 250 r's that the race teams get. I haven't taken it on any trails yet, just open fields, dunes, and tracks. I can't figure out how yamaha was able to make a racing quad sooo awesome, i can lift it with my fingers, and yet it is soooooooooooo fast. this is the quad for you if you are looking for a true racer, and the price is all worth it!!!!!!!

Went to the dealer yesterday and none in stock right now. Of course they will be happy to put you on a waiting list for when the next shipment comes in. :roll: No deals to be had either, pretty much expect to pay near MSRP for the quad. Possible $200 or so off. I walked away dissapointed.

Since Chicago Cycle has Raptors for $5000.00 OTD I might be better off sinking the extra money into correcting it's handling problems. Dunno, really confused.
