Believe it those old sleds were faster than a lot of people think, My Uncle has a bunch and their quick. And I used to hit 115 on my '86 srv all the time and that's only a 540 fan cooled motor. what people don't realize is even though new sleds have more power they are also a lot heavier than old ones.

As far as top end.... hmm, I've pushed 140 on a '01 pantera

You wanna go fast you've gotta try up on Drummand Island in Michigan. They've got a quary road that's about a hundred feet wide and miles long that they leave open only to sledders in the the winter. On that pantara well that close to 140 was a speedo reading so you've gotta acount for error. the 115 on my srv is gps though and it was only mildly tuned. I eventually burned it up running that quary road too many times though

Oh yeah and I forgot to mention i'm glad i burned up my SRV because now it's getting a 700 triple/triple out of a '97 sx700 dropped in, with an m10 rear. It should fly then. If I can hold on.

This thread was almost believable....lol

Punker, I think you should get the award for most BS that has been posted here so far. How are you gonna get that motor and pipes to fit in that chassis? and why would you do it anyway? Very confused on the wasted money for an M-10 into that pile also. From what you have posted, I don't even think you have a sled because if you did you would see that what you are planning to do in bizzare at best to completely stupid at worst. I don't mean to bust on you personally, you probably are a good guy, but holy crap that sounds too stupid to be real.......

I have an 03 XCSP600, I weigh about 140 and ride with a guy who has an 01 XCSP800 and we ran side by side for over 3 miles on a road with 6" fresh snow and he couldn't get past me. I would guess about 105-110.

Last winter i was riding on Oneida lake on my 01 MXZ 600. I installed a nitrous oxide system with a 55hp boost. So at about 95 MPH i hit the nitrous ripped past the radar, just as i passed it at 131.7 MPH my oh so precious motor spit a rod through the bottom of it where it then seized my motor, locked my track and i went airborne for about 60 yards till i hit the ice. Not fun it was fastest i have ever been, and will never put a nitrous system on another sled ever in my life. Morale of this story [Nitrous + Snowmobile + Me + Mr. Speed = Bad Idea

The fastest I've ever went on a sled was 120 mph on a XCR triple, I was going so fast that when I stopped I didn't know where I was. (haha)
