BigTwin, you are absolutely right! I got a little carried away! For what it's worth I apologize. These forums are here to learn, & have fun talking with fellow sledders. Ask away & modify your sled to the ####!! It's just my personal opinion & choice not to modify. That certainly doesn't mean it's the only choice, or the right one! If I knew how to make a ZR800 faster, I'd help you out.
As far as my first big sled, this is it '97 ZRT800. Bought it in October & have 391 miles on it so far. Then all my snow melted. Guess I'm just a little stressed, I've been sledding for 25 years & I finally buy a good sled & there's no snow.
Keep asking questions & keep learning. These forums are a great place for that!
