Here is what I found the 600 is a "little" quicker in the take off due to the slightly smaller carbs than the 700. The 700 is faster at topend 7-15mph difference depends on the snow and who is rideing. Fuel consumption is so minute of a difference. Like when we fuel less than a half gallon difference.
If you trail ride tight turns get the 600. If you are like my brother buy a 700 just because it says 700 and it is faster on the lake. Unless the lake is over 10miles long the 600 still gets to the otherside in the same time or less because it accelerates faster.
Megaman - is correct I had to adjust my suspension was way too stiff from the factory. The 700 don't have that problem anymore with the new adjustable electric shock
well gentlemen i have to say go with the 700. ive owned it (not stock). clutch work, pipes and reeds. there wasnt another 600 or 700 that ran with it up to 90. The sled was great. got around 110 miles per tank of fuel and sipped oil. i know its a biased opinion but go for the 700.
Dont forget to see how bad they each were beat before u pick though.
Women leave you,
Bosses fire you,
Friends forget you,
SLEDDIN IS FOREVER!!!
I'd prefer the 600 for the tight wooded trails we have around here.I guess it depends on where and how you ride.A few of my friends ride big cc twins and triples and they aren't any faster than my 340 in the rough woodsie trails.
