That is exactly what happened when I raced a crf450 on grass. My bike was stock uncorked as well with stock exhaust. If our 650's were geared down to the crf's ratio's, the XR would beat the CRF by a larger margin in my opinion.

put a stage 2 cam and full exhaust-gear a bit taller and see what happens

the 450 will beat you for a little while but the XR will be able to do 110+-and you'll kill him at anything over 80

Pretty impressive. I thought the crf450r would beat the 650. I have never rode either though, only my cr250r and a kxf250.

lol, i just bought a 2007 CRF450R, and i let my bud ride the XR, we started in second gear, i managed to out accelerate my pig by just half a bike length, then the damn pig started to creep up to my CRF during acceleration, its amazing if ride both bikes you would think the CRF would blow the doors of the BRP, but never under estimate the power of the PIG :lol:
