Re: xlt updates, questions
hey, I think you'll enjoy your new track, I know a lot of people who swear by camoplast. Don't forget its a good idea to get tunnel protectors if your running studs for the first time. As far a other sleds, I run with people who mostly own Yamaha and Doos, and honestly the doos are a great sled also, a bit harder on gas, just cause there the high HP twin compared to the triple. My sled is a stock SX 700 with the exception of 168 studs, and I can give a MXZ 700 with studs a good run for its money. The SX however is not really meant to be a racing machine, the SRX is. The main difference is the triple pipes on the SRX and the power valves. clutched right, its a tough sled to beat with an 800. The viper is a great overall sled from yamaha, it is the combination of the SX and the SRX. It is just a single piped 700 triple but it has power valves, it also has a much smoother suspension than the SRX, its a great over all sled. In My mind, the best part of the Yamaha is the fuel mileage. I can out do the MXZ's by $7-$10 every fill, and when you drive a lot like myself it really adds up. I had a ZR before my Yammy, and I almost tripled my fuel mileage with my new one. If you want speed go for a SRX in a yammy, unless of course your goin new, then you'd be out of luck, 02' last year for them, if you want over all sled SX or Viper, but like I said, Ski-Doo has a lot of great sleds out there as well, as far as cat and polaris, I've had my share of bad luck with them, hard on fuel and clutches in the cat, and you know the rest about the polaris, thats not to say that they don't have good machines now, cause they could be very well be great.
