Power

Extremely versatile and more than enough power for any sane individual. This bike hauls ass , I don't care what you ride, this bike is probably faster or not far behind. It defies logic but I actually beat big 2 strokes in drag races. I also have an open class 2-stroke myself btw, but it is nowhere near as fun as this bike. The XR holds it's own against it too. This bike also happens to be one of the best revving 4 strokes I have ever experienced. This Bike has balls that clank ;). Dual carb setup WAILS!.

Suspension

Well, first off we're talking about a 300 lb. monster. Secondly, the suspension is set up for trails. Suspension on this bike seems to actually excel in rocky terrain if you have enough balls to attack the terrain aggressively ( as I do). I believe that the weight and plushness of the suspension actuallyl helps in that situation by not allowing the rear wheel to hop around that much . I mean the bike just goes *through* the nasty stuff like it's on tracks!.
Brakes


Front is not bad, the rear brake just about blows goats. But with a bike this good it's not even worth talking about.
Comments

Folks, remember that this is one of the 4-stroke "pioneer" bikes that started to turn the tide of competetiveness of off road 4 stroke motorcycling. This bike also kicked serious ass in the Baja 1000 races, beating ALL competition, yes including all the damn 2 strokes that it chewed up and spat out. The bike's got character.

To wrap it up, the bike is just simply the best bike that I have ever owned. I have it for 17 years and it still kicks ass. Don't forget, there is NOTHING like XR 4 stroke "hook-up" in the real nasty terrain, where 2 bangers ( 2 strokes for those of you who don't know what that means) lose any advantage they might have had against a 4 stroke. The bike is a true GROUND POUNDER. Buy one and see for yourself.

Power
Identcal to the '86. Just whopping 600cc power. It's a madhouse of power. All the way until you really couldn't rev it any further.
Suspension
Like I said about the other one, it sucks for jumping, but great for trails. Good high-speed too. No problems.
Brakes
They work, but like all 4stroke Honda's. They are great with everything except the brakes.
Comments
Runs great, great bike, just like the '86.. Crazy machines.. Worth having.

Power
The power is excellent. There is alot of low end torque and an excellent over rev in the top end. The bike will pull like a tractor or rev to the moon. It actually beats my YZ490 in a drag race!
Suspension
Not that great if you are doing jumps with the bike but it's plushness is good for trails with alot of rocks.
Brakes

Ample, nothing to write home about.
Comments

The bike is an all around low maintenance bulletproof warrior.
