should i sell my modded banshee and buy a yfz450??
i do a lot of trail riding, jumping, dragging, and hopefully MX soon. after reading all about this i'm thinking i'm stupid for ever getting a banshee and putting money into it. i've ridden a few 400ex's, slightly modded, and i don't think it's enough power for me, since i'm used to the power and accel. of a banshee. the only thing i like about the 400 is the handling and shocks, so would it be a smart move to sell the banshee as quick as i can and jump at one of these 450's?? help me out here.

I love my YFZ but I really think you should wait to get the Honda that everyone talks about. It'll be out in about 3 or 4 years.

yeah.. exactly..

but id get it. You will probably miss the 2stroke hit, but i hear the 450 hits just like a 2stroke. I should be able to tell you in about a week when i get mine :lol

EXACTLY.....the first time I got on it, I was like hey it's my 250R WTF?....But I love ridding in the RPMs, and not in the torque.

Already I've also now have beaten a piped predator with my bike being bone stock (no airbox lid removal, or "pea shooter" removal) The YFZ has opened my eyes from being a honda nazi :lol :lol

sweet, yea i love the hit of the 2-stroke. i've ridden modded 400ex's and i don't like how they don't have that much power and don't hit like a 2-stroke, they feel like it's all torque and no real "speed". i'm going to be putting my banshee up on ebay soon and see how much i can get for it, then i'll be getting a yfz450! that is if my dad doesn't back stab me and get a rancher... :evil: lets just say he wouldn't be waking up the next morning....hehehhe :twisted:

All you have to do is ride one once and you will know the answer! HELL YEA! This quad is unbelievable. It is so quick, handles great, I think it has great power through the woods and hill climbing. I love it. It is a lot better than a Shee IMO. It does not hit like a shee does though. It'll probably feel weak at first because of that.
