Hey everyone

I was looking into purchasing this sled but thought id ask some questions here first.

First of all, Iv heard that the yamaha non powervalved triples are really good on gas when compared to other near equal displacement sleds. I know that they are better on gas than the F5 firecat as my freind has a 600 triple venture and it was getting better mileage than the cat, but wil the triple also be better than my phazer on gas?. Im expecting somewhere close.

From what iv heard, these motors are not the most powerful when compared with same displacement motors from other manufacturers, but was wondering how the SXR600 might stack up against other 600cc sleds, such as the polaris XLT and any of the other 600cc equiped sleds such as ZR's. For what its worth, the sled is longtracked with a one tooth gear reduction, reed spacers and a roller secondary with a brand new ripsaw track, unstudded, and maight be putting a pipe on it. This is in a comparrison for people who have ran with other people on one or two of these sleds at the same time, just a generalization. To make it simpler, the difference in top speed, and it doesnt have to be that the sleds are setup the exact same because it is never liek that anways.

Also, the sled has 7000kms on it, and was run with synthetic SHELL oil and is in MINT MINT condition. Does anyone know if the engine will still last a while like my phazer motor has so far?

Thanks in advance for any responses
