YFZ450 or Honda 450r or Other?

I am buying a new quad relatively soon. I was all into mudding and 4x4 quads, but im wanting to switch to the sport side with trails and sand!

I know they are both priced relatively the same the yamaha and the honda, but is one better than the other? I've always really loved the yfz450, and recently went and looked at a couple 450r's.

What would you guys buy? I am more than likely going used and somewhere under $4000.

All comments and suggestions and welcomed

1996 f350- 615hp/1258tq uncorrected

2008 KR f350- leveled and tuned 569hp/1158tq

I am 6'6" and weigh 220lbs so i think 450 is the smallest i'd wanna go. I rode a 400ex and i liked it but i could feel it being slightly under powered in the sand with padels. it was all stock though

Yeah, id have to say a YFZ is what id go with if i ever switch back to the sport atvs, i switched from a 350 Raptor to a Big Bear 400 4x4. A guy that rides with us has a Yamaha 450 with jet, intake,and exhaust and itll run somewhere up around 90mph. Thats quick enought for me.

Just find a newer Raptor 700, the EFI makes a world of difference!
