that is pretty unusual.... f6 is the fastest in the 600 class and the poo is the runner up

Just got back from a friends cabin in Northern Wisconsin last night. One of the kids had a clean 2002 ZR800 EFI w/ 1500 miles on it and a 1.25" Ripsaw track. I also have a 1.25" track on my 2002 Viper. We ran them WOT across the Chippewa Flowage. They are dead even all the way to full top end. He also had an advantage being 25 lbs. lighter and has EFI being it was well into the 30's. BTW he blew a belt and his recoil went out. Typical Cat reliabilty.

I have a friend who has a 2006 Fusion 600HO. I finally got to ride with him a couple weeks ago in northern Wisconsin. Naturally he wanted to run me. Let's just say he was VERY disappointed. It really wasn't a good race. I could pull away from him anywhere I wanted to. I think these magazines are full of it. They keep saying how fast the Poo 600's are. I have yet to see it. I think the Doo is the strong runner in this class. I have had a couple give me a little bit of a race up to 75-80mph, after that I walked away from them. Come over to totallyamaha and there is plenty of info to get your Viper in tip top shape. It doesn't take alot to wake them up.

Don't let some of these polargoons on this site see this post...lol...I also had a 2002 viper...the rear suspension was a rough riding POS....but..the engine kicked butt...I kept hearing how slow they were on here, before I bought mine...low and behold I got mine home...and it wasn't very fast..took it to my local yami dealer...found out the power valves weren't in sync (I guess the dealers were supposed to check for this)...so my local dealer syncd the power valves, and carbs..did some minor clutching (different spring, more weigh in the tip).. and we also swapped tracks...he wanted my stock viper track for his SRX, gave me a brand new finger track (great track for lake running, and hard pack...sucks in soft snow)..which I put 144 studs in...the sled gained 10 MPH on a radar gun..I completely spanked my buddies 670 HO ski-doo, and whipped several rev 600 hos...I don't know about the fusion 600 HO...but I creamed polaris 700 ves sleds....to make a long story short...many people posted how slow their vipers were/are..or that they whipped a viper..if you have a slow viper, you should have a dealer make sure your power valves and carbs are syncd..it makes a big difference. (my sled was also jetted way to fat for our elevation..check that as well)

My Viper has been a screamer. I had the updated shocks put on so it rides very good. I have no problem keeping up with anyone in the trails. I have had only one 800 twin give me a race. A buddy at work has a 2002 ZR800 EFI that I raced on a 40 deg. day and he pulled me by a length until his belt shattered. I know if it was 15 deg. or so I may have pulled him. He says the only F7 that got by his ZR8 this year has NOS on it. Last year I raced a kid on a real clean 2003 F7 snowpro and I pulled him quite well. (yes he was bone stock though) I know those things fly in the right hands. Just talked with a friend yesterday that has 2 '03 F7's One he ran at a 2000' radar in Wisconsin and took first at 121.4 mph over Kelly Shilts. Not too shabby....
