we just use little 600 triples here in Michigan for enduros, although they average 170 hp.

Hey bs, I think you might be a little high on your horsepower figures for 600 cc triple enduro engines. 170 h.p. would be a very stout figure for a radical 600 cc drag race engine desgined to run for 5 or 6 seconds without grenading, let alone an engine that has to run for hours on end. I'd say 155 to 160 h.p. might be more in the ballpark for an enduro engine.

ok 160 to 170 is more like it, point being the horse power verses the rpm and amount of run time intended for the enduro sleds make the snowcrud sleds seem weak,
