If he has 200 pounds on you it might work. TIme to upgrade so you can waste the rappy.

My life is not a journey with the intent of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather I will skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out loudly proclaiming... WOW What a Ride!!!

imho i say looks for a used 06 450 engine and make it a hybrid. it wouls probobly be cheaper than modding out the 400.

Best bang for the buck: Hotcam stage 2, remove choke + 42 pilot + 155+/- main, hrc muffler endcap from a 450r (yes it bolts on). I hear yfz 450 front shocks bolt on and keep the stock ride-height. Should try it... if you need more hp after this, try a 11-1 426 kit.

As for racing a 700? Yes goggles would be a good investment.
