Its the same chassis....so why not get the newest possible motor?

I have a stock 809 1997 Mach Z with the updated 99' clutch, it MOVES, with only a little over 1000 miles on it. It does put to shame the other real stockers. It makes every final in the Isr world series. Last year I did not go way over to Michigan, to race. 104 mph in 660ft. under 6.5 seconds. Email if interested [email protected]

Good point Sharkey....I hear 97 was the best year for the Mach in terms of HP and reliability.

Add a chrome windshield (by cobra I think) and a purple headlight and maybe some purple lights under the running boards and vents. Verrrry kool


One of the best looking sleds I ever saw was in cochrane, it was a summit millenium edition with a chrome windshield. Boy that sled looked hot

Watch the tinted headlights. The cops were writing guys up for them. The Ontario MSV Act. says the headlight has to be white

Speed is everything you might want to bolt on some precision skiis and maybe add a 1.25 lug track on it as well.

I think you will get arguments over which year is best, but in my opinion, from 97 to 2000 were good years.  Most h.p. during these years, and the 97 had a hotter ignition, which good tuners loved, however, the 98's had some problems with crankbearings, as did the 97's, but not all.  With the proper mods done, take your pick.  I know the 98's were fast and so were the 97's.  The problem with the 98's were you needed to get the pipes hot before they would rock.   The 97's were set up the best from the factory, but the chassis was said to be slower in the wind tunnel.   I don't know if is true or not.  I had a 2000 Mach Z that was extremely fast and reliable stock.  Of course I added V-Force reeds and PSI pipes, and that sled was unbeatable against the sleds I ran.  Never had a chance to run against Zmachman's 97 Mach, but that thing "rocks" .  So, to make a long story short, any one of the Mach's would be a good decision, if the bugs are gone.   Piece out.

The cops that I saw pinch a guy for blue headlight on his Yamaha were at an intersection with a stop sign. So they'd have you for failing to stop plus Bill 101 has a section about failing to stop and/or fleeing. We had a little "incident" like that a couple of years ago, south of Apsley. The guy didn't win
