I may be getting a new sled, but cannot make up my mind.  I can get an F5 for $6950 or a leftover 02 ZL800 EFI SS for $7015.  Both are out the door with cover, oil, plugs and belt.  I just cannot make up my mind which one to choose.  What would you guys do?  Caleb?

Buy them both
..Get the one that suits your riding style the best..if you like to ditch bang..go for the F5..if you like to trail ride, I would go with the ZL...personally though I would wait a year on the F5, let them get a year under the belt on it. In the end it is your money..so get what you like

I still say to get the ZL ropb. You certainly won't be disapointed with it's ride and it's the same ZR motor so theres ni lack of power. And the efi rocks. Though I couldn't stand the green and black ones myself. I'd remove the funky green graphic and put some flames or other graphics on it.

I'm voting for the ZL.  But it better suits my riding style.

The ZL800 is a nice sled, but it doesn't quite have the grunt that the carb has. The clutching is very conservative. Remember, that EFI is hard to deal with if you want to tune. And the ZL will have a less agressive susp, package on it. It is a good price. If you wait, you might be able to find a 2002 ZR left over and have the ZR susp. to go with it.

Either way, I think they both will be good sleds.

I'd go w/the ZL...it will take a year or so for Cat to get the F-sleds right.  You're talking about a sled that rides very well and one that will ride very rough.  What kind of riding will you be doing...trails or snocross?

You guys didn't read his question as it isn't a standard ZL but one with the SS suspension. And it's quite easy to put the clutch kit into a EFI LZ as it is a ZR. Same Kit in fact with most places.

Good choice ZRT!  I think that sled will rock.  Are you going to change your username now?
 Maybe you should leave it out of respect for the triples, RIP!

I can only dream of 0% with my credit as minor as it is. It's nice having a girlfriend now that has almost 800 scores. It's going to make buying a house alot easier if  she decides to sell her house so we can get one together.

I almost went back over to Ski Doo but I don't want to buy a new suit and helmet right now.  And to think of all the AC hats I own, my wife would kill me.  I have a million Red Wing and Arctic Cat hats.

JIM, that price is without the stuff I mentioned and without tax and registration.  That's high.  Thanks anyway.
