Bullshit, not possible.  I knew him, great guy.  If he would be that old it would make me, well nevermind it just can't be true.

Yup he’s something like a hundred and 20. He started whey he was 10. I think The Green Mile was based on his life!!

A few months back I did a MX tag team on my buddy's YZ450FX after practicing all morning on my Beta 500. The Yamaha was nothing special, and I had to twist it harder to get the same results as the Beta, especially in the corners it lacked grunt. Certainly not in a different league.

A YZ450FX lacked grunt?  Are you a Sasquatch like @Mongo134 and @shrubitup?

The 500rr and yz450f both make 32wtrq of grunt.... but the yz puts down 6-8 more whp with 50 less cc.

Maybe the beta is more grunt and the Yamaha more rev? Makes sense as the beta is an off road bike. 

The YZ450FX is also an off-road bike.  IDK, I've yet to ride a 450 that lacked grunt, so I just assumed Sasquatch.

I am a Sasquatch! However, 2007 husaberg FE450 does have good grunt low and lower mid range but once you hit mid range on up, very little rev and very little pull compared to most 450s. Complete trail bike. Works great for a 15-year-old kid coming off of a KX 100

The FX shits all over the 480/500 with similar gearing. 
Personally I don’t like the feel of the 500. 
My buddy does his best to convince me the Beta is better than the Yamaha for snow bikes but the YZ makes more peak HP and regardless of what people say that’s what you need with a track kit.

Here’s my geezer mode in morning practice, this is my idea of low end torque. Third corner sweeper before the jump over the creek.
