2009 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE
Best sport atvBy Cam (I am an Owner) on Feb 14, 2011
I bought it new September 2010. This Raptor is not for the faint of heart. Not recomended for kids at all. It has torque everywhere you can put it around or just open it up crazy style. 2 complaints i have are #1- Bolts are cheap especially the oil drain bolt and pretty much any bolt are easy to ... snap if you over tighten them. Complaint #2 Tires are way too cheap the 2 ply Dunlops wear really fast they aint worth much. The rest is awesome. Reliable, fast, strong, easy to learn on and a real cadilac to drive. Wear your gear when going for a ride. It aint called a raptor for nothing if you aint carefull it will bite you.
Things to get when you buy it: Tires and a good steering stabilizer, Some nerf bars are a definate plus to be had. From 1 to 5 5 being the best Durability 5, power 5, suspension when dialed in 5, Pretty much everything is a 5. I love it and i recommend it to the + 16 years old to 55 years old. 55 year old? Yes its that comfortable.
The Ultimate AtvBy Bryan (I am an Owner) on Aug 05, 2009
This is the best ATV I have ridden in my whole life. When I was little i rode an ATV it inspired me to buy one. Now that I have the 2009 Raptor 700R SE my childhood dream has been fulfilled. I absolutely love this ATV and I want to buy another one for my dad he has always wanted one like my uncle ... because that is where I rode my first ATV. I like this ATV so much I wanted to give this same one to my dad. To bad I don't have enough money but if I win this $1,000 I will finally have enough after saving up for 3 years.
