Talked to my dealer he rode the 900 this weekend and said that is is really quick and feels a lot lighter than the 800. He said it would really go if it was able to hook up but just spinns at all speeds. Wild I think he said was the best word to describe it.
Yes it was studed, don't know about clutch work.
The mph is about right, it was 50 deg out.
You ran at the radar and it looked like it did'nt pick you up after 600', you could see your top mph from the sled and you did'nt hit the end of the strip.
I like the new 900 but I hope they come out with the all new ZR700 in the sno-pro body thats more what I am looking for, Maybee they could throw on some factory twin pipes, Its been a long time since any company has had the guts to do that!
I hear romor there is an F-% cat coming out for 2003 and an F-7 cat coming out. The F-7 has about 140hp. The F-5 around 104hp. They will be named the firecat? They will 13.5x128x1" tracks. They will also have digital/analog gauges. A flip of the switch and they switch from analog to digital. This is what I hear. Kevin
ZR 900 , Big deal, Cat is limiting themselves only to twins, Don't get me wrong twins are fine (i've got a ZR-800) but I still prefer My T-cat for these trails in northern Maine, I've had cats for years and Arctic Cat has always had the Bigest and Badest seld from the Wildcats,900cc and 1000cc thundercats. Now it looks like the Cat guys will be looking at the tail lights of Yamaha's RX1, Arctic Cat Thinks that every cat rider wants to play Tucker and wants twins and light weight this and that, well I have to say when your traveling 80 to 100mph theres noting thats as stable as the big triple,
Arctic cat does'nt need a 900 twin they already have a big twin, how much bigger do you need a twin?
