Key Features:

  • Torquey, powerful and super-durable air-cooled SOHC four-stroke single puts out a wide, deep powerband and starts with the push of a button.
  • Rugged and smooth-shifting wide-ratio six-speed transmission; keeping that powerful engine purring is nearly effortless, whatever the terrain.
  • Reverse gear is just the thing for getting yourself out of tight spots.
  • Light, 375-pound dry weight boosts performance and handling and makes all-day rides even more enjoyable.
  • Big Raptor style and Raptor-inspired seat mean maximum rider comfort and movement with excellent sport-riding ergonomics.

Engine:

  • Light and powerful 348cc air-cooled SOHC four-stroke single produces great torque down low as well as a serious top-end rush.
  • A big, 36mm BSR Mikuni carburetor provides light throttle pull and excellent throttle response across the entire rpm range.
  • Electric starting is standard equipment and works in any gear.
  • Shift into reverse from any gear; convenient shift lever allows easy access to reverse no matter what gear you’re in.
  • DC-CDI ignition system delivers consistent spark at all rpm levels — for quick throttle response and a smooth, broad powerband.
  • High, snorkel-type intake ensures airflow to the engine while riding in mud or water.
  • Automatic cam chain tensioner reduces engine maintenance and ensures optimal performance.
  • Easy-to-use, handlebar-mounted choke lever.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • Light and strong chassis creates a quick, super-responsive high-performance package.
  • Low, 32.3-inch seat height enhances rider comfort and provides optimal rider movement.
  • Independent double-wishbone front suspension with preload-adjustable dual-rate shocks and 7.9 inches of travel.
  • Lightweight aluminum wheels reduce unsprung weight for excellent suspension performance, acceleration, deceleration and handling.
  • Large-diameter ventilated hydraulic front and rear disc brakes deliver excellent stopping power even in wet conditions.
  • Extra-wide, 45mm footpegs straight off the awesome YFZ450 provide excellent grip and rider comfort.
  • Easy-to-use, toggle-link type handlebar mounted parking brake can be set with one hand.
  • Rigid and light swingarm with Raptor-type linkage rear end is controlled by a piggyback reservoir shock with adjustable preload and 8.3 inches of wheel travel; the result is consistent performance during aggressive sport riding.
  • Specially designed low-profile tires deliver outstanding traction for razor-sharp handling in a variety of terrain.
  • Easy-adjust chain adjustment feature means hassle-free chain maintenance.
  • Composite skid plates and 4.5-inch ground clearance (measured at the rear disc) means maximum underbelly protection.
  • Composite front grab bar won’t dent or rust and protects from debris and damage.

Additional Features:

  • Dual 30-watt multi-reflector halogen headlights straight off the potent YFZ450 add the perfect menacing appearance. Taillight has an incorporated brake light for added convenience.
  • Easy-access grease fittings on all chassis lubrication points simplify maintenance and help extend the life of the Raptor 350.
  • 2.4-gallon fuel tank means less filling up and longer, more enjoyable rides.
