My 96 ultra is finally running killer with PSI pipes. Just layed waste to a stock 2001 800 RMK. Buddy was impressed, I think next will be some taller gears and more lightweight parts. New smoked lexan hood is sweet. Gotta love old fast case reed wedges.

You'd be surprised the LONG list of sleds your Ultra will "smoke", in fact it'd probably be easier to list the ones it won't smoke!! [:D]

I have read on this site that an ultra with PSI pipes is in the 150 HP mark. They are heavy and the way this thing runs I would guess that that is a reasonable number. If i knock a bunch more weight off of it it will get that much better. Now all I need to do is lose my canadian beer belly and another 40 pounds will be gone too. but the odds of that weight savings happening are questionable.

The high RPM SLPs will put it near 150 as well, these are all ballpark figures of course. Many other things can have an effect on hp. Nomatter what, I think it's best to hold on to your butts lol.

I have always wanted a Ultra Wedge. I kinda have my eye out for either that or a 98' XC 700. But i do like the trips. What can i expect to pay for a decent ultra? And what should i look out for if there is anything?

modblasters?? When I put those on mine it was a completely different sled. I can't wait to get mine dynoed and see what those few extra cc's I've got do.

$1500 would get you a decent 96-97 Ultra.

Funny story...

My brother was running his Ultra up in St Germaine Michigan Last year. Half way through the ride in which we went up and around lake Gogibic?? the o-ring on one of the heads let loose, so it was running on two cylinders. So a guy with a little 500 Venture thought he'd prey on a wounded Ultra. I was laughing my ass off when the Ultra pulled it basically as a 440. I'll tell you don't mess with a pipes Ultra. I don't even want to see if my RXL can beat one, for fear of embarrassment.

You know that is one of the BIGGEST mis-conceptions in the world of snowmobiling today?? Take into consideration that the 97 Ultra SP wieghs 509 lbs. with the HEAVY stock exhaust, and steel skis. Compare that to some of todays "light" sleds with all the plastic and goodies..

Apex GT 554 lbs
Apex ER 551 lbs
Attak 577 lbs
F1000 EFI/LXR 518/542 lbs
F8 EFI/LXR 503/527 lbs
Mach Z 529 lbs

Now slap on a set of cheap plastic skis and a set of aftermarket triples and you have a sled that is compariable in weight to the following..

F6 Sno Pro 495 lbs
F5 EFI 485 lbs
600 HO CFI IQ 485 lbs
MXZ Adrenaline 600 479 lbs

And there you have it, the MYTH has been debunked!! [:D]

I agree with indyultra there clem!! Keep the beer belly and go with titanium!! [:D] It's easier to add titanium than it is to lose weight, plus titamium looks cool!! If you lose 40 lbs you'll just be another "skiny" dude LOL [:D]

That's a 440 plus DRAGGING a dead cylinder.

Says something doesn't it?

Are you guys trying to tell me that an ultra is fast??
i'm not so sure about that.










fast may not be the word. considering they usually whoop sleds with 200+cc's on them.
