99 rmk 600 gearing

I bought a 99 rmk 600 on holdover and was wondering if anyone has done gearing changes. I have only put 15 miles on it since we have had no snow, but it is snowing right now. I am not planning on doing any mods but was wondering what people had to say about stock gearing. I will be riding around bozeman montana and was wondering if the gearing will be okay or if i should change it. thanks for any input.

Re: 99 rmk 600 gearing

I've got a y2k rmk 700. Today we rode in the first deep (2-3') new powder of the year and I got to see what it would do in the trees finally. For putting around in the trees I think I'm going to gear down a little from stock. The sled did ok but I think I'd wear out a few belts with the stock sprocket. I'm sure the stock one would do fine if you're always on the hammer. By the way I have'nt yet found out what the stock gearing is; probably the same as yours - I ride the Bitterroots.

Re: 99 rmk 600 gearing

I have a 99 600 RMK also. It is a strong running sled and climbs like a banshee. The carburation is overly rich. My dealer has ordered for me the same needles and pilots that the Y2K 600 is coming out with. This will help out during low speed technical stuff (much better throttle response). My advice is to do the same and break the sled in several hundred miles. Let me know the results if you do change your gearing. MB
