here is my story. my dad has been paying for my quad i currently own a ltr450 which ive been pretty pleased with and i am getting a job so i will start taking over the payments here soon. i have been concentrating on motocross a whole lot and ive gotten to be alrite at it. but im looking to do more trail rideing with my friends and maybe sum gncc. i am kind of getting tired of the 06 suzuki. and i am thinkin about trading it and getting the 08 kawasaki 450r.

I've never ridden an LTR450 so can't compare, but to me the quad definitely handles better than anything else I've ever ridden, I absolutely love the handling of it.. Steering is quick and sharp and the quad loves to slide through turns..

Power wise, it definitely isn't the fastest quad out there. The bike does have instant throttle response and feels torquey but you can tell it's just to choked up to really have much top end. All I do is trail riding and it does decent, but my guess is would be better with a PCIII at least. I'm constantly having to change back and forth between 1st and 2nd gear in trails due to 1st gear being so tall. It does really well in the woods as long as you keep the revs up and work with the clutch a lot.

I definitely took it through it's paces this past weekend when I went to Coal Creek OHV (WindRock) in Oliver Springs, TN. IMO, I'd rather be riding a utility up there WAY to many rocks and stuff but the KFX went everywhere I wanted it to aside from bottoming out on a couple of rocks.. Rode for 10 solid hours (a few of them was when we were lost lol) and the bike performed flawlessly to all the abuse I threw at it..

I think your problem plagues most quadders. Truth is, if you want to do mx and xc, you need 2 quads. As far as the Kawi, I would go with a Honda or Yammie for XC.

well you will hear alot of bashing from users on this site about the kfx...i love mine. it doesnt have any top end which is why alot of the mud diggers dont like it, but you really dont need much top end on a motocross track.
