Got this in a trade for my 2006 raptor 350, very awesome trail bike and sorta easy to ride. got it as my first dirtbike and plan to upgrade to a yz125 next spring because im bored of the lack of power espeecially when riding with my brother on his ktm2 250.
Very smooth running 2-stroke, starts easy and runs great at every altitude (6k-10k so far), tons of torque and very nimble.. Fantastic machine for Colorado Singletrack. I'm 6'4" & 175lbs so suspension feels great right out of the factory.
Tractors around in 2nd for slow stuff and 3rd for faster stuff, 1st for getting the wheel up, this machine is really hard to stall.. when in doubt, power out. Glad I dont have to dick w/the fueling anymore as the altitudes change. Extreme TPI Map loaded when picked up from Dealer. Power Valved backed out 1.5 turns from Stock, Black Throttle Cam Installed.
Going to plate it but its just for getting too/from trails.
Great bike. Wide ratio 6 speed. Lots of torque and power, very reliable. Easy to work on and aesthetically beautiful. Shifting can be kind of clunky trying to find neutral, and going from neutral to 2nd is clunky. Might make a good 2 stroke dualsport someday. Open up the carb boot and youll get great top end power
