Getting time to switch from yamaha and I'm looking at a 01 summit X700 and a 02 800.  I could use your opinions.  Is the 800 that much better?  is it better at all?  Does anyone know the tourqe and hp comparison of these 2 sleds.  I live in the black hills and prob don't really need the 800 or do I
I sure could use your opinions.  Are any of you selling a sled similar to these and what do you think I should pay. Thanks for your replys

 Just thought i would share my two cents. I have a 700 and wish i would of bought the 800. If you start with the smaller one you will always want the bigger (it seems that way for most of us i think). Now if you are coming from a smaller sled and a 700 is more than enough, stick with that, it is a awesome sled, I love my machine, it keeps up with the 800's as well as the 700's in most classes, but there is a difference in climbing and launching that i noticed when i tried the 800, but again it usually comes down to the rider ability in the end. I have out climbed people on bigger machines because they were not ready or willing to try that type of stuff as well as i have been out climbed by people on the same size sled that are just that much better than i am.

I wish you had posted this earlier ,my dealer has a leftover 02 summit 800 that he will sell for cost,thenI knew a couple guys heading that way pulling enclosed trailers this week for the rally  ,and it would have fit in with one of them.

Hey dooman,  that would have worked great.  I'm trying to work a similar deal with a local dealer.  I'm convinced I need an 800 with a 144.  Does the 2002 have the ZX-X chassis or just the highmark model with the 151.  Do you know the price on that sled.  The dealers here don't like to deal.  If you gave me the number,  I could call them.  thanks
