dude - that's wikid!!! - gotsta post pics, and a quick impression of how strong that motor actually is....

Raptors have an 835 cc bored and stroked 7R plower plant - supposed to pull like a train - was talking to Doug Meyer - Muzzys main man on Labusas about it...he says it works like a dream...very special machine....it'll eat gixxer 1K for breakfast....

Ray Stringers do a similar kit which i'm gonna get in the winter time....supposed to put out well over 145 rwhp....!!!!

enjoy!!!

You are one very lucky man. I've been trying to get a hold of one of those for awhile. Most of them have been raced so to find one that is still complete is a real keeper. The price is a steal.

Is it the real-deal 850 Raptor, or that pseudo 750 Raptor that Cycle World rode a few years ago. Also does it have the single-sided swingarm? That option alone added over $3000 to the price tag. If so, it would've cost over $25,000 new. Cool bike. 149 rear wheel horsepower. 178 mph top speed.
