Yesterday a friend of mine dropped by to show me his new YFZ 450 quad. He bought this thing about 3 months ago and I have to bite my tongue every time he brings his new ride up. I can't stand them and most of the people who ride those things, but he is a good kid and he is excited about going into debt to buy it so I keep my mouth shut. Now this thing has basically the same engine as my WR aside from some cam specs from what I am told. What shocked me and pissed me off at the same time is this thing HAD NO A.I.S. PUMP! There it was plain as day, the cast areas in the head that Yamaha would have drilled holes to install that annoying piece of junk they call a smog pump. Now this quad has a green sticker, is C.A.R.B. and EPA legal. How the hell does that happen? Can my WR spew out more crap than an overweight clumsy quad that has to work harder to achieve the same speed? I don't think so! I would also guess that this thing did not come with a throttle stop, a grey wire, a pea shooter in the muffler, or jetted lean as sh%t. Does anyone have an idea why this B.S. is applied to my bike and not this quad thing? Does the government feel bad for quad riders, thus feeling they need to be treated "special". From what I am told quads out sell bikes year after year, so their status as a minority cannot be taken into account. Is it that they weigh so much? Man I hate quads and this just pisses me off more!
