Good News.
I rode the MXZ 800 over 2000 miles last year. A dog at top end to say the least. I had the recall for the pistons completed prior to this season''s riding. With the following changes, I hit 110 miles per hour and the sled was still pulling before I shut down. If your having troubles, try the following:

* Set the T.R.A. at the number 4 click
* Set your secondary with White spring at A-3
* Set the drive belt to ride on the secondary at 1/8 inch above the clutch
* Set your R.A.V.E at one complete turn out
* Jet your Mains at 480 (500 is stock)
* Take out the foam in the hood that sits over the airbox, also the small one on the airbox. You still have 2 foam pieces protecting your carbs, the two in your hood and the one in the airbox.
* Amsoil
* 87 Octane

I hit 110 and still pulling at Tug Hill, temp was about 30 degrees. I weight 220 and have 192 studs in the track. This sled is running OUTSTANDING!

Good Luck

Well cork, this is certainly good news. I have a couple of questions. Is the 110 MPH on your speedometer or radar/GPS? My '01 ran 109.4 (radar) last year at sea level, 25 deg.F, hardpack and ice on a pond, 192 studs, bone stock with about 200 miles on it before the timing advanced. I weigh 200. What was yours doing for speed before these modifications?  How does it do in acceleration with that light a secondary?

Thanks and good luck,
Doug

Not on Radar, on a flat road covered with ice, the studs were grabbing hard, ( no spin) the sled was pulling extremely hard.

Last year, at best, maybe 98 miles per hour on a cold day.

Vast difference.  Last year the sled off the line would pull, but this year, I can pull the skis off the ground.  

Whatever they did during the recall made the sled run crisper.  Last year I fouled plug after plug, this year I have had absolutely "0" problems (200 miles) so far. It pulls harder off the start and has considerable more top end.

See initial posting.  Yesterday, ran the 2001 MXZ 800 hit 113 MPH 3 consecutive runs.  Ran against a 2001 ZR800 for confirmation.

I'll post again after I change to a 27 tooth gear installation.  Hoping for 2 MPH more at top end.
