Ok, Rico's450R
My 450r mods, FCR 39mm Keihin, Hotcam 2 stage, Ti-4 Titanium Pro Circuit slip-on.
YFZ450F All stock exept for the Gyt-r kit which re-jets and a slip-on.

Everytime we race the bikes, we're side by side. He couldn't pull me. In fact he would leave everytime before me and I would be right at his heels everytime. I feel if we had a flagger I would beat him(because I'm very good getting out of the gate). But, the results were always the same. The funny thing is I still have my 10.5.1 compression piston in. So if I bumped up to a 12.1 like him, I would probably beat him everytime. I always here everyone wanting to know and now you know. We were at the track and we both had track tires on with stock gearing so noone had the advantage. Except for him having the 12.1 piston. I've always told people if you put the same mods the YFZ had! The TRX could keep up with it and even beat it!! Now I know for sure! :D

So there you have it. This was real world racing and the results are the facts about both bikes!
To stay AHEAD, ride RED!! Rico

Funny you say that...I have the sparks cam, filter and jet kit, and Ive never been beat by a YFZ either.....however I have only raced 2 of them (real race that is), and I beat both of them pretty badly.....one was all stock without the GYTR stuff....and the other was jetted with GYTR package.....the stock one I beat by about 4 or 5 lengths everytime...I could have ran circles around him.....the GYTR one I would only beat by 1 or 2 lengths top.....Once he got a better take off then me and jumped about 2 lenghts in front of me right off the line...but the good ole 450r chased him down and passed him in a few seconds.....I just goofed up on my take off.....that dont happen very often.

first of all, I said he got the jump off the start every time. He never really let me get ready or I would probably be telling you something different. We didn't have a flagger!! The stripe was only about 100 yrds. I also said if we had a flagger I probably would have beat him. Besides that, he could have had more done. That's all he told me! This guy was lauching in third gear. Where I was in second. I really don't think I could have don't that in third. Of course never tried. But like I said this was real world racing at the track. Track is different than sand or and other place for that matter. But, anyways, this was only my point of view and I do not tell anything but the truth. Take it for what it is worth!! Rico B)

If that Yfz is taking of in third and is getting a good holeshot, hes got alot more done than he says, or his gearing is really low!

Ya, it's funny what people will tell you to make there selfs look good. I'm the kind of person that tells you how it is. No bullcrap. Why can't everyone be that way. If I get beat then I get beat. But, don't give me a line of crap. The only one your kiding is yourself. Anyways, I still think I could have beat him if we had a flagger. I always got out of the hole after him and I did get nose to nose with him by the time we got to the end of the 100'.

Look at my mods and I can pull on any bike in third...except these alcohol banshees I raced this weekend....

When I race the 450R...they usually get me off the line...because I am fat...but I can pull real hard and pass in third...the races are around 125-200 yards

i haven't raced anyone and probably never will, nor do i usually engage in "smack" talking. but... if i were going to, here's what i would say:

If you wanna get smoked by me, come on down... i don't do away games.

and here's a little cliche:

Better bring your lunch!

:lol: that was fun. for those who don't know my humor... i am j/k and ROTFLMAO right now. i can't wait to see the next post.

Look...I am not talkin shiz...but I have yet to be beat on a regular basis...ocasionally I will get taken...but I wheelied when I shortshifted 2nd and had to throttle down....only 2 bikes have beaten me and they are both YFZ's...one 450r took me down but I wasn't jetted right and couldn't find the sweet spot that day...but another bike I tuned (YFZ) took him. He had cams, pipes, carb, sprocket, all the basic goodies but couldn't take a YFZ with a pipe, intake and jetting.

Now if anyone gets a faster bike out here than I will just go to a 470 kit but haven't had to yet...

I am not in this pic but look at my competition...it is like this every weekend...and I win 9 times out of 10...btw, notice the 450r leading this drag and the guy standing was the flagman/starter
