I have a chance to pick up a 98 XCR 700, not cheap but still reasonable.
I would like to have a triple/triple in the garage.
Haven't heard much of these sleds or mills...
What have you guys heard pro and cons... sled looks and sounds sharp :(

Good sled.

It actually the ultra 680 motor. The previous year it was maketed as a 680 Ultra SPX sp

it has all 98 crank updates that the Ultra didn't have.

- Forth oil line for PTO bearing
- Better clutching

Overall a good performer.

If I was you, I would look for a 99 XCR 700.

These had the variable exhaust, flatslide carbs, TPS. A completely different running monster with a full 700cc.

But if your good at motor work and clutch setup, these non VES motors can really scream.

stock. Overall strong performing trail sled with decent top end out on the lakes.
