Drag kill fun, wr400 beats dr400s, klr650, yfz450

Had fun friday, add to the kill list (not just bike length either, these were all dominating kills), didnt loose any, I'll have to try on a weekend when there's more people there.

Details: drag strip at Durhamtown resort, powder dirt 3-5" deep

1 KLR650 (he faired the best)

2 DRZ400E (I tried it, felt really light, but no power)

3 YFZ450 (heavily modified, looked it anyway)

My bike is a 98 wr400 bumped to 13:1 444ci, white bro exaust.

The yfz450 kill suprised me, the quad had mods, my buddy had my bike trying it out, and raced the quad, I thought they were quicker than that.

One race for each, or multiple races? Did you swap bikes and re-race?

Just wondering what weight advantage you have, if any.

Multiple races for each

I tried the DZR400E, got spanked by my own bike, but man that thing feels small & light, I may be getting me a DZR400S, I really love the feel, it feels MUCH smaller than my WR400

but it's go no power, still plenty for most riding though

Too bad you're not closer, I'd let you ride my 440. It's night and

day difference compared to a stock DRZ400. Power is comparable to

an uncorked WR450. :thumbsup:

I don't like the ergos of his DRZ but the power of Dan's bike (with the 440 kit) was right there with my WR. :awww:

No wonder you beat them all with a 444 cubic inch engine on a WR400!! :awww::thumbsup:

Hey....That thing got a Hemi????

freudian slip, I wanted to type 444cc

I'd be very surprised if a Stock WR400 wouldn't beat all these as well.

We drag raced out in Moab with a KTM 450 EXC, 520 MXC, Uncorked XR650R, 2003 KX250 and my WR426. I spanked them all easily but I really think it's just rider skill. I used to lose all the time. Starting in the right gear, right rpm and who's got the balls to hold it on to the first turn. We were in some sand washes and once it turns, only one bike can go through and I wasn't backing down. I think if I was on the 520, I'd have won even more easily.
