    Both of them are 3 cylinder 2 stroke motors. The SRX is a completely different motor top to bottom, it was built with triple pipes in mind(since they came stock). The SRX also has powervalves, for more low end and midrange power while keeping great top end power. The SRX hood and bellypan are also different to fit the triple pipes under the hood. The SRX has short travel suspension compared to the SXR which has long travel suspension. This allows the SRX to have a better holeshot and faster top end speed. Having it lower to the ground makes it faster.

    You can put triple pipes on a SXR but it still won't have the power and feel or a SRX. Although a SXR is better for rough trails and ditches. The SRX has alot of power for a 10 year old 700cc sled. They also have a pretty thick and smooth powerband. Thick meaning that there's alot of power everywhere in the RPM range and it's smooth. A SRX doesn't have much of a "jolt" as some 2 strokes do when they get up to peak RPM. That's what makes an SRX sneaky fast. You wouldn't believe how fast you're going until you look at the speedo. I kind of got off topic there but you get the point.

    700 SRX = the fastest production 700 3 cylinder sled ever built.

    thats because arctic cat never built one haha , there fast, but they never had much competition in the 700 triple class, kind of an off size triple

    this is going start a whining/crying episode but i disagree with this statement.
    the cat F7 had no where the HP that the 700 SRX did.
    what about the 650 and 680 polaris fugis? both were duds compared to the 700 SRX.

    The F7 has the advantage of being alot lighter than the SRX though.
