Haven't raced the 450R yet. I told myself I wouldn't race it till it was ready! And it is almost ready. I ordered the shocks from Schmitty last week! I raced my Z400 all last winter. It is a lot of fun!! Just be careful when you are first starting out. Don't try and win your first race, just try and finish and go from there! I race MX by the way!

i'd like to get involved in some hare scrambles too, but i also want to finish work on my 450r first. i live in florida and have seen some advertisements for hare scrambles on the Florida Trail Rider's site. does anyone from florida do these or know of any other ways to get involved?

I want to, but the times i've thried stuff always came up. I was gonna race the sparta gncc this year but my killswitch hadn't come in at the time, plus it rained really bad and I only had 22inch fronts and 20inch rears.

I was also going to do a mx type race with mattyfz450 but it got rained out.

I haven't raced my 450R yet, but I raced my previous KFX400 in 3 CMRC races last year. My first race this year is July 18, I missed all the spring races because of too much work! :(

I race District 17 hare scramble and MX. I raced the Spartan GNCC earlier this year on a Cannondale too. I'm currently making the switch to a set of 450R's through a dealer sponsorship. (Already have one, just got to sell the C'Dale and get another.) I've raced my 450 3 times and have takin 3, 5, 8th. The 8th was b/c I had a pretty gnarly wreck in moto 2 but got 1st in moto 1 so ended up beating more than half anyway. The C'Dale I've had more luck on though until late. (Retiring and selling it.)

I'm currently 3rd in Quad C class for District 17's Illini Super Series in Casey, IL. (Where the nationals were held in June.) In hare scrambles I'm not sure though. Haven't had much luck but haven't tested the R yet. I'll be racing the R in a 12hr enduro on Saturday so lets see it's ability.

That's only true for AMA/ATVA races. Look around for non-AMA races and you will likely find some that don't care how old you are --- non AMA race age limits are totally up to the promoter & many don't care, as long as you can handle your machine.

I dont race or never have raced quads yet but I would like to but am not really sure how. I raced BMX for years and was pretty good though. Im still learning how to jump my quad which is something else I need to get down before attempting MX. I think if I did go after some racing it would be GNCC since Im into trail riding more than messign with woops and table tops.

I have just started hitting more and more races this year. Last winter I did some indoor motocross on a 250r. This summer I've been doing Grand Prix and some outdoor motocross on my 450r butnot as much as I had planned. I got a bum wrist 7 weeks ago so it has slowed my racing down, but it's getting better and I have a race scheduled every weekend, but one in august, up until October. Racing is a lot of fun, just stay in the class you belong in until you are ready to progress.
