I just picked up a cherry 02 700MM with 700 miles on it for $3000.

I want it to be a "backup" sled that handles the steep and deep if my primary sled has an accident [:p]

I've never been around yamaha's but the price was right and the sled is in showroom condition.

What do I need to do to make this thing run and keep up with the bigger twins? Pipes, can, suspension stuff? Any yamaha experts advice would be greatly appreciated. 99% of our riding is high elevation, boondocking climbing etc. (wyoming, colorado, montana area)

of course tripple pipes, you can shed some wieght and gain huge power. gearing and clutching are huge to a mountain sled, the right kind of track makes a difference. soft lugs in early soft snow so the lugs will bend and try to walk on the snow istead of trenching in. in sno-tech magizine there is a couple mountain yamaha places. you could go with titanium springs or one of there rear suspensions and shed some wieght

Pipes, can, clutching. The sled also responds well to porting if you have someone local you trust to make the mods. There is a local guy here who used to hold the pro stock bike world record who can make a 700 triple scream.
