500 ves only makes 100hp at max??
Give or take a couple, yeah, its close. That's alot of HP for a 500. 1 HP per 5 CC's is pretty good. Alot of 600's from the 1990's were only in the 90-100 hp range.......at least mine was. If you don't think that's enough, then work on getting more of the HP to the ground, ie: better clutching. A typical snowmobile with 100 HP at the crank only gets about 50 HP to the track. Clutching will help. IMO.
that's alotta power for a 500, are you guys sure on that? my 500SX only puts out 88
not that horsepower has a HUGE impact on rideing, do yer clutching and gearing right and little sleds can eat bigger ones, no problem. My 500 won the 600 multiple pipe class points this year on grass
this is something everyone needs to learn
horsepower IS, what horsepower DOES
for arguments sake tho, my 500 doesn't have a powervalve system, so it's quite possible that the indy has more, and I think the indy's have always been more powerfull, still tho, seems a little high, I woulda guessd 95 or so.
they may be called snowmobiles, but hiding behind that is a cheap excuse to not grass drag.
Yeah 100 horse is pretty much the average number for dyno reports that I have seen, power valves would help......but then look at the 600 tripple from yami, something like right around a 100 horse on that? WTF
