I just was wondering what the top speeds for the 2002 pro x 440 liquid and pro x 600 were. I've heard a lot of different numbers i just wanted to get things cleared up.

We've seen 104 mph with a gps while lake running and setting up for Cross Country Ice Leman...and also had 104.8 mph on radar. All depends on good air density and temp. Those numbers were with the 02 Pro X 440's. Haven't check the Pro X 600's, but they are a bit faster at times. Hope the info helps.

Changed the tank to the larger tank....get the kit. I changed tank and steering loop, but keep the handle bars forward by putting in a block so a person can still go into forward stand up. Also switched to low lug track off a 99 edge. Geared up....played with a lot of gearing....depends on your weight what will seem to work best. The gearing I have is a bit lower than my friends, but I am shifting the clutches out full to get better speed. As luck would have it, there isn't enough snow to be in the ditches and woods yet so we are Ice racing on the lakes. This is not necessarily my favorite since the set up has to be so good and there isn't a lot of room for error in the corners. Also changed pilots to 30's and dropped the needles. Jetting has been stock alot....using race fuel. Get the low octane head kit if you are going to trail ride. Just have to install the head, re jet and back down the timing switch one notch. Hoping for snow.

DO YOU REALLY HAVE TO CHANGE THE STEERING, I HEARD YOU HAD TO TAKE OFF THE RECOIL AND CRAP LIKE THAT TO CHANGE THAT

You don't have to touch anything on the motor....you do have to cut the recoil rope and re-feed it into the new hoop. It isn't very hard to convert everything. The kit comes with instructions. E-mail if you have questions and I can walk you through it.

I'm setting up an 02 Pro-x 440 Liquuid for trail use, other than the 12 gal tank and 92 octane heads, what gearing or clutching changes should I make? What suspension changes do you recommend? Waht is the top speed with the stock gearing?
Thanks

Check your email Fast_XC. I sent you out some info. It would have been a pretty lengthy post. Have a good one. The sled is a lot of fun this year.
