Anybody have any idea how the yfz is gonna stand up to the rigors of desert racing? I'm thinking about leaning more towards desert now than mx, but i don't want to have a quad that's gonna bust up all the time
I think as long as you would do all the things to it that you would do to another quad for running in the desert you would be fine. The good thing about this quad is it redlines like a 2-stroke so I think that would be good for the desert.
i bought mine to race out in the desert. i went and road it out in barstow last weekend and it works great. just needs a little more ground cleance. so i am putting on the 22 in the rear and 23 in the fronts. should give it the clearance i need. hills, rocks, washes not a problem. if you prep it right you'll have no problems racing it in the desert!
