I have recently became an owner of a 2000 SXR 700. In its prime it use to be a pritty quick sled but as time went on and new sleds came out it sort of sank down in the speed world. I was wondering if there is any slight adjustments or parts i could put in it to put it back up to par or even higher. im not looking to spend a ton of money ether. any advice would help..

Thanks for the imput

Its still the fastest 700 ever made, but if you want more you could try a clutch kit and a long-travel suspension kit.
The SRX was never meant to be a ditch banger, but with a long-travel kit youd pretty much have the best of both worlds.

Thats odd. In my oppinion that Sled is Still pretty damn fast for its age, and compared to new sleds.. It all depends on what kind of Outcome you want. What Kind of "speed" you want. Accleration? Top Speed? There are a few different routes you can take. There are a few different things to mod also... Exhaust- Pipes or a can. Intake- upgrade reeds. Clutching- weights and springs. Ever considered that this sled MIGHT need a top end rebuild to give it that extra fresh grunt? Anyway.. Theres just a few ideas.

I put a 1.25 ripsaw I my 99 srx and had to change the size my drive wheels and adjust the clutch. I have only rode it once this year and it seemed alot faster than last year. You live in Franklin? Is there any trails or places to ride? I have family in Franklin

ok thanks for the info... octane you were talking about a long travel kit... what is that. is that just a track conversion to extend the track... and how much is it.

about franklin... its really hard to ride around here. i have a place in langlade county which is where we ride. two years ago we finally had enough snow to take our sleds from franklin to our place up north... it took two days in which it was around 500 miles a day! you have no idea how sore i was by the end of the trip. we have another one planed for later this year.

whishin for snow!!!

is this an SRX or SXR, two different sleds.
I have the SXR and there are a few free and cheap mods you can do to that machine. The SRX is a tripple tripple with power valves and the SXR is tripple single piped no valves.
let me know which one you have and I can give you a few suggestions.

So how many miles on this sled?
What's compression like?
Are the clutches in good shape?
First you need to do the basics and then you can get into the good stuff.
If you like to read, go visit the tech pages at http://www.totallyamaha.com/.
Off the top, there are things like changing the head gasket, reed spacers or notches, air box, pipes, clutching setups, just to name a few. Besides the pipes, you can do all these yourself without empting your wallet.

Its a SXR not a SRX 700. how much should i be expecting for new piping? about the cluch... its got A LOT of miles on it but its still in pritty good condition. i think im gunna buy a new cluch kit and play with the weighting. hey has ne one else had problems with the slides sticking... the previous owner said something about them being pritty bad.

my SXR700 with single pipe well set up would run 107mph on the gun.
They are not slow..I would beat the FIII 700 all day long. I have since piped if for $250 pipes, $150 clutching. If you pipe it you must re-clutch and re-jet. Now I am shooting for about 116mph.
there are some free mods that will make a big difference with that sled.

SXRBoy,

It is all in the setup. Suspension, clutching and other little tricks. You must be riding with alot a people that dont know how to set up their machines. There is one guy that had his single piped SXR700 doing 114mph on the gun. One guy down the street from me with his piped Vmax get 119.1mph. Your 600 must be very well set up to get those speeds.
