Went and picked up another sled today, its a 2000 600 RMK w/ SLP Twin Pipes w/ EGT, K&N airbox kit, Jet on the fly kit, VForce Reeds, seat recovered, 3400 miles, needs a snowflap so if you have one let me know

starts 1st pull, seems to have a low end bog, when you punch it it bogs, backfires, then rips your arms off,

Looking for some basic information, it has Xtra-Lite suspension which I have never heard of, and why did it need jet on the fly kit, didn't the Kehin carbs come with a factory ACCS.

all these accesories dont really apeal to my dad and I was wondering if any of these part would swap onto my 99 700, or if i should just swap him sleds, mainly interested in the reeds and the slp twins

here are some pitures

Sounds like it's jetted incorrectly for the twin pipes. I'd check that out first to fix that bog/backfire. My 700 did that when the pipes were on, little did I know my carbs were so f'd that it led to a burndown later in the season. That was before I knew how to work on my stuff....

Reeds should be interchangeable, not sure about the pipes though.

i was pretty sure the pipes would not work until i saw it in person, and realized it was a non-ves 600 that i started owndering if it might, i just assumed it was ves since out 2000 600 xc is

Yes, the 2000 rmk 600 and the 99 xc700 are the same. All the parts are interchangable.

The pipes will work great, but you CAN NOT just put them on and start them up. You need to jet your sled for this or you will do damage.

Don't forget to replace the gasket on the Y pipe!!!

sorry forgot to mention that the sled is a 700 rmk not an xc, if that makes a difference, and i was just reading on the slp website how to properly install the pipes and jet the carbs

Agree with everything Prat said. I gaurantee reeds are interchangeable. But I don't think the pipes would be best, because they are designed for the 600 motor, not the 700.

i have no idea, just came from slp's site and they dont even list twin pipes for the 600 rmk, the only ones i found that look even close to the ones on it say they are for a 700 non-ves

The reeds will work in your 700, as for the pipes I am pretty sure they won't, they will phisically fit but back when SLP made the twins for the non ves 600 they had a different part number than the 700 twin pipes, the SLP single works on both the 6 and 700, I would call SLP to make sure as the twin pipe volume may be a bit smaller for the 600 and the stinger exit diameter will also be smaller, thus creating a too "tight" condition, SLP does not make or sell twins for the non ves 600 anymore either, I am guessing this is because they did not sell a lot of them, the holzman variflow is a nice piece for riding in changing altitudes though, again I think it would be wise to put in a call to SLP and ask for JIM, he will set you straight on the pipes.

I just went to SLP site and looked in the technical data, the 2000 600 big block twin pipes do in fact have a different part number, here is the link to the page:

oh and the Xtra Lite 136 was used on Touring and SKS/RMK models around the 1998-2000 range. It is not the same as a 136 Xtra 10, which also existed during the same era.

how does it compare to ride quality, same better or worse then the xtra 10 or edge

I haven't ridden one. Actually I haven't ridden anything longer than a 121"
But I can tell you it won't be as good as an edge. My guess is it will be pretty comparable to an Xtra 10.

ok wasnt expecting an edge quality ride, have not put many miles on an xtra-10, so not sure what to expect there yet, although we have learned that a longer track helps alot with the ride quality

The xtra-light suspension was first used in 2000. IMO the xtra-10 rear suspension is by far tougher. The ride was not much better then the xtra-10. If you ever wonder about swapping them the 136 xtra-10 and 136 xtra-light mount up to the same spots as each other. Again this is just my opinion.

also keep an eye on the shock tower weld, where it connects to the bulk head. I had a 00' rmk 700 and the weld had a 5-6" break. I could litterly seperate the shock tower from the bulkhead by hand.

we probably wont worry about it now, when we left the sled was gona be for my mom, and she is just a trail putzer, but none of the performance mods were listed in the add, so who knows who will get to ride it

If its going to be a putzer for your mom or whoever I would consider taking the twins off and putting either a single, or a stock pipe on, the twins can be kinda finicky, but my wife has them on her sled and she likes it. I have hers jetted a little rich, so when it gets warmer out hers doesn't run the best, but still runs plenty good.
