Well I finally got my Z broken in and I have a buddy with a stock 400EX that has been begging me to race. Of course I am going to race him. How do you think I will do? The 400EX's are supposed to be decently fast, but I would assume the Z400 is the faster bike. Just want some input.

You should smke him.
The 400 EX is really not much competition :)

I raced a friend last weekend several times w/ a new 400EX, and always beat him by at least 5-6 quad lengths.

The hardest part for me was trying not to lose my traction :)

This thing is fast :):)

I've raced a few modded ones too. You'll leave him in the dust. Guess what guys, we'll have another Z guy buying a quad and joing the baord in a few days!!! :?

Here what it takes for a 400ex to keep up with the Z:
FMF MegaMax pipe, White Brothers cam and ignition, plus a Wiseco high-compression piston.
I got that from atvaction.

I finally got to race against my buddy who has a 2000 400 EX, only mod is a K&N. My Z is bone stock. It was no contest. I took him in every gear. Also, I was at a dead stop and he rolled by me in 3rd and I took off after him. Caught up to him after about 1/4 mile. Top end is very close. I was creeping up on him topped out in 5th.

Don't worry, you'll have no problem taking the 400ex.
