hey i have always run 600 cats but this year i bought a 800. So i was just wondering if any of u have some tips for me. i ride in New Brunswick Canada, where the highest elevation that i would run would be 1000 feet. I guess i do some lake running when the lakes freeze and there is not enough snow on the trials.

Hey man, I live in NB too(Moncton). The first thing you wanna do to that sled is the clutches. Then studd it, I would use 192 1.250. Put a aftermarket can on it, you can choose from Black Magic, D&D, MBRP etc..... A good friend of mine had a ZR 800 efi last year and the thing rocked. He races arctic cat through the race program and he knows how to get them working. I am not much help because last year I had a 2002 Thundercat and this year I am riding a 2003 ZR 900 sno pro. Anyways, if you ever need a hand or some info. email me at [email protected]. Good luck :devil:

Hi Dawg,
I rode the same sled last season. It performed very well with 410 mains and a Goodwyn clutch kit. The stock clutching is very good but the Goodwyn stuff definately helped. Some have reported running 400 mains with no issue but I can not confirm.

Hey ZR, how much do you think the Goodwin clutch kit got you over stock? Just bought a Goodwin kit for my ZR800 this year. Going to try it this weekend. :p

It wasn't a big improvement on my 02 but still well worth the money. If yours is an 01 you'll notice a huge improvement. Best part of their kits is that there seems to be no downside as with many of the kits on the market.
Enjoy

Like with any cat, first get a clutch kit.

The 800's make lots of power but I don't know what AC was thinking for clutching.

My buddy has a stock ZR800 carb, and I can take him everytime on my ZR600 (re-clutched). However to be honest, we are pretty much neck and neck, I am in the lead of him till around 95 - 100, then he can over take me, but he needs a long lake to get by me. Goes to show what a good clutch can do.

Don's Speed Parts in Alberta can put together a good D&D kit. Give them a call, you won't be disappointed. In fact I just bought a kit from them for my ZR440. Can't wait to get it.
