horsepower can vary.. depending on fuel quality, engine condition, engine temp, plug gap, carburetor settings, elevation, ambient temp, wear & tear, mods, damage etc...

but the question was about an 800.


the 02 800s are supposed to be between 135-140 from the factory. the 01 800s without ves were about 127-130 from the factory.

I know, they were supposed to be not many were. A stock 700 would run neck and neck with a 800.

the clutching and gearing is also different between the two. i don't believe that the VES 800 makes the same HP as a non VES 800, and also the same as a 700. not arguing with you really, i would just have to see a real comparison to believe that. mechanically it makes no sense at all. i believe 135+ for a 2002 800 VES motor.

^^Go over to hcs and read what guys have to do to get their 800's to run.

The 800 was a good engine when tuned well. I don't beleive they made the hp figured that the xcr 800 did.

From what I have been told by tuners the 800 xc did not put out the numbers that polaris stated.

With the ves the 700 only made about 5 hp more. So it should be the same with the 800.

Take a mid 90s sled, say a 600, and race against a 600 of today. New technology is constantly coming out. It seems some new technology came out on the 2003 XC 700 that gives it more hp than previous year 700.

i was kind of saying something like that. i was saying that the 2001 800 had between 127-130 from the factory and the later VES 800s have more. but i was also saying more than that. i'm saying that i believe the 700s made less power than 800s but the gearing difference in them may have made up for the HP difference, making the 700 with a little less power able to accelerate right with an 800.

i know that the VES 800 makes more power than the non VES 800 from the factory. and i was using the example that i'm fairly certain that the non VES 800 made between 127-130 from the factory and that's not Polaris' claim. Polaris was saying they were going to make more than that and they didn't.

while we're on the topic, people should stop trying to think of one specific HP number that the engines make. if you take 5 or 10 sleds right off the assembly line and dyno them there will be variances in how much hp is made from sled to sled. it's just the way it is.
