I think the YFZ is going to be the BEST quad for EVERYTHING. Its not THAT wide and it has wonderful, shocks, chassis, etc. I heard this thing keeps up w/ modded banshees in drag races and handles like a 250R. And also heard it flies straight and feels like a feather in the air. I know I'm switching to one from my Z. But I havn't ridden one so this is all what I've heard. But I will ride one before I get one.

Yes this is the quad for you. It revs to the moon. With just a sparks pipe and cam mod and re-jet you are looking at 47hp at the wheels. It can hang with a 70hp banshee up to 4th gear and then it gets beat but not by much. It can jump with the great shocks that come on it. It is the 250R of this millenium. I think Arens said it best when he said that Honda can really only equal this quad.

It'll be great in the dunes. It revs like a 2 stroke but has the 4 stroke torque. It does not have quite as much low end as a raptor but the engine revs unbelievable. It would be great in the dunes.

Dude freind, the YFZ is the ultimate dune machine overall better than the banshee.
the banshee doesnt jump worth beans nor can it run huge bowls without sezing up.

look at this site about dunes and banshees....

Ummm, when you actually see chokecherry hill in St. Anthony, Idaho, you will be more impressed... When you see a YFZ450 go up that dune

This one is sent in from Sandgod, thanks!

Most raptors cannot even make it up the hill even with mods.


The only quad that can consistantly make it is a Banshee, and even some of them can't do it.

Here are vids of modified raptors trying to make it up...

Here are some piped Raptors TRYING TO EVEN MAKE IT UP chokecherry

VERY FEW RAPTORS CAN MAKE IT UP THE HILL!



Here are some honda 250r's trying to MAKE IT UP chokecherry...

and here is a stock 400 ex trying to make it up chokecherry...
http://www.dunereview.com/video/400exChokecherry.wmv

now that is what the average stock quad can do on chokesherry, like that honda 400ex.


here is a NICE BANSHEE trying to MAKE IT UP chokecherry.
http://www.dunereview.com/video/ass-stuckC...Chokecherry.wmv

not many can make it at all.

And if they do they usually have to get a VERY FAST RUN AT IT.
very few make it even then.

To start at the bottom and accelerate up is just plain awesome.

You have to be there to believe how steep it really is, you cannot see steepness on pictures, cameras in 2 dimensions just don't show the steepness.

When you stand at the bottom of Chokecherry and look at the top, your neck hurts, its a WALL, it is almost as steep as it gets, the dune 300 yards south of chokecherry is STEEPER and it is as steep as sand can ever get, almost no one makes it up there. I don't know the name of that one.

the last video, when the Banshee gets stuck, notice how far forward he leans? WHY?
It shivers your innards to look back down that monster.
(Oh, his angle of his body leaning forward is verticle. The picture is taken too crooked. It should be 20 more degrees or so.)

If your quad flips backwards and cartwheels, it would be totally destroyed.
I saw a video of a quad cartwheeling down a dune and it was going thirty miles and hour and looked like a wheel spinning smashing front and back till it hit bottom.
It is rare, but it certainly could happen at chokecherry.
Now you see why he is stuck to his seat, on that stuck Banshee!

so the YFZ450 going up so easy its like WHATS THE BIG DEAL?
To make it with a 210 pound rider is definitely awesome, and at a speed that he can jump the lip is amazing.

The big deal is I have never seen a bike jump the end like that before, that was an awesome climb by Buddha with that jump at the end.

To see it another way, the 500 cc dirtbike (most powerful made) was not much faster, and HE KNOWS how steep that hill is, HE said that was an awesome climb.

...and THAT is ONE of the reasons I personally wouldn't take ANYTHING Arens says to the bank...

Hey dadogrider how do the DS do on Choke Cherry? Did not see any vids with them that you posted and you did not say anything. Can they make it or are they too heavy?
