well i am selling my 416 EX thats slightly worked to my best friend for 2300$... it somehwhat a steal but w/e. with that money i plan on buying a new quad a few weeks after he gets he gets his which should be this weekend. I want a 450 size quad. The raptors are too big for me and so are the Predators. im only 5'6'' and weigh 160lbs. But i kinda have it narrowed down to the 450R (Honda) and the YZF450 (Yamaha). On paper they look like the same. variations in carbs and suspension length. I believe this friday me and my friend are going to a Yamaha/Honda dealer so we can compare both next to each other. maybe even ride them a little. But i want the opionion of people who rode both. Im leaving towards one for the reason that many vendors are there.
