Hello everyone, Dont get a chance to post often but I have a couple of questions. Looks like I am buying a 1990 or 91 wildcat longtrack. Originaly had a 650 and was switched for a 700. In general whats the feedback on these sleds? Never owned a cat before so i dont know much about them.

I have had 3 Wildcats- still have 2. 650 is about 100-105hp, 700 about 110-115.
They are cylinder reed engines, reeds at bottom of cylinders so you have to
pull the cylinders off to access them.

These engines would really have benefited from exhaust valves. They go like
crazy at full throttle, but have some issues at lower speeds/rpms.
Mine are bored and ported, and really pukey at low rpms.

Lots of parts and mods out there for this long discontinued motor.
I have had mixed results with the Wiseco 790 overbore kit.
PSI and D+D made pipes for them. Boyeson makes 2 stage reeds for them.
Lots of cylinders out there if you melt one down.

Don't try to lean em out too much. Easy to melt pistons if you do.

I owned a '93 Wildcat Longtrack (700) I liked the sled and it went thru the deep snow pretty good. But, it was Gawdawfull heavy, and if it got stuck, it usually took 2-3 people to pull it out.

ditto on the heavy part. I have the 96 efi mtn cat. And it goes pretty well thru the deep stuff with the 1 5/8 Challenger track that is on it. I find the steering to be to heavy, even after playing with the suspension setup. And the gas mileage is a joke but that isn't why I bought it. Overall I am happy with mine and it goes like stink from mid range on.

PSI and D&D don't make pipes for them any more. I checked... I have a 90 widcat 650 in need of a muffler.. NO one in the nation has one.
