nice sled. i saw a black snow checked one last year at a radar run. he had picks in it, and almost flipped it end over end just from the launch. little too much traction maybe? there's definately somethin wrong in the heads of those zr 800 guys though. hehe, j/k boys

AAAAAAAAAAAAAH! DAMN! lol, I want one of those monsters so BAD I can smell the exhaust fumes! LOL, just be careful of the torque on those that you dont lift up the front end on a corner, lose control, and smack into something. (Lighthearted eh?) Just have a good time mate! (Safely)


Almost forgot.......NICE SLED KID!

Kid? I'm 32. I used to sled in the late 70s, early 80s and loved it. I now have enough friends and the means ($$) to get back into it. I imagine this sled is a bit different than the ones I rode back then
. I picked-up the 800 knowing it was more sled than I needed, but I didn't want to outgrow one in a season or two.

Anyway, I am off to northern-lower Michigan in a few hours. Catch me if you can...

like paul said watch that torque man. You should prolly look into the coupling blocks. My uncle may attempt puting them on his 99 ZR 700 after riding his new 2002 ZR 800 and seeing what they do. Or you may be able to get a kit for it.

thanks.

Nice looking sled! Are you running 192 studs? As stated in one of the other posts those 800s with 192 studs will flip over backwards(on grass anyway) I almost did it to mine. I just bought the coupling kit today, will install it this weekend.

Have fun and ride safe.

They say they are a dangerous trail ride if you don't ride them right. Like coming out of corners on no skis which in case you didn't know when you dont' complete a turn and do this is very bad.

I got my first ride in on Saturday. Put 140 miles on it and am still feeling it today (sore muscles). We ran the sleds pretty hard, but I was careful and she went through the corners very well.

Yes, I have 192 Woodys MegaBite studs with 8" Woodys Executive carbides.

FYI... I ran against a 2002 MXZ 800, a 2002 SXViper 700, and a 2001 ZL 800. The MXZ won, then mine, then the ZL, then the Viper. My sled was running very rich which, when corrected, will probably bring me close to the MXZ. All sleds were stock.

After seeing all those studs in your track, I'm guessing that you are gonna be getting some serious traction with that ride. I know the pre-coupled Cat's are a riot, but it takes some time getting used to them. On my 500 (yes I know a measly little 500, but shes got balls, and is clutched just right) if I am a little throttle happy out of the corners too soon, the front end rises, and well she doesn't turn too good. The coupling will fix that, but I like the weight transfer better. So have fun and keep the rubber side down!
