i've ridden just about every sport quad from yamaha, honda, suzuki, and kawasaki. the raptor 660 is a badass quad but out of the box it does need some work. extremly fast in a straight line and can take jumps pretty good but you have to be careful how you launch it. they tend to get light sided pretty quick. the best engine mods for them are a simple K&N and exhaust, the engine produces lots of torque down low and good HP up high. the chassis takes a good amount of work to get right. they sit pretty high up and have a unusually high center of gravity. lower them and make it wider and it'll handle like it's on a rail. i used to ride with a few guys who all went out and bought new raports when they came out one guy left his stock for awhile where the other few guys raced so they modded the hell out of them. night and day diffrence between a modded one and a stocker.
