im not sure of my 250r's top speed but i can outrun my buddies polaris predator and it will go 75.i dont leave him i just creep by.im going to estimate it at about 78-80.we also done holeshots and i smoked them at that too but not by much.

Don't forget about the Tecate, Quadzilla, DS650, and Cannondale. They're all pretty fast stock.

a 250R in stock trim isn't going to beat any of the new stuff...at least in my opinion......start to open them up.....they will smoke everything

Well, I'm ashamed to say that I have never been on a 250r, but from what I've heard and read countless times; The stock 250r is about as fast as a 400ex.

yeah I would say that is true that they are as fast as a 400EX.....its real easy to screw them up and have them run worse.....if the porting isn't right it will be a dog......I had one like that.....

I dunno I ran pretty well with my buddy's 450, on my 250, and neither one of us could realy gain on or loose the other, and we were passing traffic doin 55. I would guess that both R's are within a mph or two of each other.

Top speed on a 250r is around 72mph. The new quads will jut get there much quicker than a stock 250r.

Don't forget that we're talking about stock quads.

the fastest quad ever made is the lt500... period then the banshee and tacate....... thats the order period. thats why those 3 were taken to the salt flats a long time ago. cause they were the fastest quads out there. but a blaster is up there too :blah:

I highly doubt that a stock banshee would run with the tecate and lt500 in stock form.

ok a banshee is a 350 and a tecate is a 250.... banshee has it beat in cc's and doesnt weigh hardly any more... but of course it doesnt run with an lt500.... its just the 2 next fastest

I have raced a stock banshee and won on my stock cannondale. I have no idea how good the other ride was but I'm definitely not a drag racer. And if I'm getting beat by yfzs, then they're faster than the banshee too. But like I said, it could have been the rider. The truth is, I have seen 2 completely stock 400exs race and one was hands down faster than the other. We switched quads and the faster quad again took the lead every time. Because of this, its hard to say which quad is faster, especially now that the 450s are so close.

A properly tuned and in good mechanical condition stock banshee is surprising. With my pump gas dome in my 250r vs a stock banshee I was only 2-3 quad lenghts ahead from a roll in a 3th to 6th gear run. But that run was on alphalt, on dirt my advantage was greater and the kid weighted about 90 pounds less than me. vs a 05 450r, the 450r had the advantage on the launch and the banshee always passed him a few feets later.

I agree about a banshee being surprising. They're fast no doubt. Is your 250r stock? I don't really know much about 250rs and what a pump gas dome means. If yours is stock and what people say is true about a stock 250r being the same speed as a stock 400ex, then that would mean that the banshee is slower than both the 250r and 400ex in stock form. I have raced a stock banshee on my stock 400ex and I never even had a chance.

Thats a good point. Which is faster on a mx track? Which is faster in the woods? Dunes? Desert? Drag?

I have just heard from several 250r owners that the 400ex and 250r are about the same when they're stock.

Thats what im saying all i have on mine is a pipe and a good reed cage and on the road i can outrun a stock predator i dont run off and leave them but i can pass them. i can smoke a z-400 on the road and ive heard they will beat a 400ex.

My 250r is far from stock though... ported by duncan, 38mm carb, hi-rev paul turner pipe with fatboy silencer etc...

Pump gas dome = low compression cylinder head dome.

i have a 250r with pipe and a little minor motor work and i can beat z400s and 400exs blasters banshees and a stock preaditor and i am pretty much stock. i one time raced a stock 450r and beat him by a bike, but ive also raced a worked bashee with like the same work as me and i got my butt handed to me i raced 2nd gear roll and he beat my by like 6 bikes and we also raced 3rd to and the same thing.

does any one no the stock speed of a trx250r in no mine does about 78mph cause i can beat stock shees and z400

1985-86 ATC 250R has to be in there somewhere.

Well I've owned 3 ATC 250r's and those will go about 76 mph. I have a stock TRX it's probaby right around 70-72 mph. I've owned 2 Tecate 3's those screamed to about 78 mph. A bone stock 250R TRX isn't as fast as it's made out to be. I'm not bashing it at all, it's the best quad ever produced in my opinion. I dragged a stock 03 400EX(wich is mine also) against my 86 R many many times. The TRX will out accelerate it very quickly but the EX will creep to The R's rear tires when both were maxed out. That is stock of couse, as any one knows with just a pipe and a re jet and the R will put 2 quad lengths on it. I clocked my nefew(150lbs I think) on my EX at 67 mph. Quick and fast are 2 different things. I rode a Tiger 500cc (rotax I think) 2 stroke 3 wheeler a few times, would blow away my buddies quadzillia back in the 80's, a scary fast trike. And Hussaberg (swedish) made a 500 2 stoke quad also, I've only seen 1 in my life, but from what I've been told it was the from a friend who rode it , said it was "so fast he felt like a retard" when he got off it, what ever that means. Many trikes and quads have been more fast than the TRX, but the R outlasted them all because it was an all around better machine, it handled better, it was light, built to last, took to mods better, it's still the bench mark for sport quads for christ sakes lol.:p

I have a 87 that is fresh from a complete rebuild and 0.20 over. Stock everything. I have been repeatedly smashed by an equal rider on a raptor. I just put a Paul Turner trx6 pipe on it and it is a completely different bike. No other changes and it is tons faster now.:)

What if the Raptor had a pipe on it? Could you still beat it. Just curious.
