LOL i have not visited this forum for at least 1 year. I have been spending way too much time in the Off-topic forum.

I have raced an xr 600. Flat straight stretch, dirt and gravel, an old air strip. It was dead even till i hit 4th and 5th. then i pulled away.

BUt guys like it has been said so many times before, it is the rider. Plus who just sits out there and challanges people near a dirt drag strip? That is very boring. I know a guy who could ride and cr 80 and out trail ride me.

I have ridden several xr 600's. they are nice. BUt very heavy.

Chris( not a newbie) :thumbsup:

Yea! As for as top speed goes it's faster than the raptor 660! It's a great bike but, the oil change is frustrating though! It has excellent power everywhere! I have several miles of tight trails and open trails and I have no problem in the tight stuff. :thumbsup:

Why you so hard on the guy? IT is a free country, as long as the name calling and threats dont happen he is fine. Now you on the other hand. WHO CARES, no need to call another riding brother names. Ride in peace. Quit the assult. :thumbsup:

I come from the old school of Honda XR500 bikes. I owned a total of 5. I have ridden a few 600 and 650s, also. Bulletproof bikes, but performance-wise.... they are garbage compared to the WR400 that I own right now with the only mod is a '99 YZF exhaust. Stock WR cam timing, gray wire still intact, etc... (for now) Night and day comparison.
Why is that? The technology on these new Yamahas ('98+) are so far ahead of the XR's which is based upon late 70's 4-valve technology. Long stroke...small bore. WR/YZ + VERY short stroke which = high revs, and large bore which = large valve surface area packed into the chamber.
Think of the old XR's as a Harley vs our WR/YZFs like any new inline 4 on the sportbikes out there making more than twice the HP on less displacement. Now.... Honda's 450F... that's fighting fire with fire now!

I thought just the midwest forum was mindless babble and arguing. Nice to see it's spread throughout the whole site. :thumbsup:
