F7 Slower This Year

Postby Straightliner » October 1st, 2003, 10:06 pm

Friend of mine has a new F7. He took her for a test run. He said it is no were near as fast as the one he just traded in. He was telling me that dealer told him. To many blew up last year so they geared it up. It cost cat big-time for motors. So this year you should be a little faster with longer legs on the far end and little slower on bottom end. I have to go with what this guy says he had one of the fastest F7s around here last year and is a excellent clutch man. (Later)

Whats he thinkin' it is, ecu mapping,(if EFI), taller final drive or clutching? Or did they just detune them so the other sleds can keep up.
A picture is worth a thousand words.

Maybe he should break it in a bit before he makes a comparo.....Brand new stuff needs to wear in a bit.

I have my doubts that CAT did anything to "detune" considering the engine is not turning out extreme HP numbers.....140 ponies will not break a motor. The issue was the oil pump markings. The only thing the factory will probably do is enrichen the oil a bit......

He could tell that on grass in his yard? The 04 is just as fast as the 03. The drivers are now 9 tooth not ten like the 03's. The gearing was changed to keep the power the same. The problem was not the computer in the 03's it was the coolant flow in the chassis cookin the engines in some sleds. The ECU's were not the problem. The fact is the 700 twin in the F sleds really hauls ass. Live with it. Beware of the F8 in January 04. 155hp

Could that be why they say that the F6 is almost as fast as the F7. Because she is slower. Think About it!!!! They better come out with
that F8 pretty soon Ski-doo is mopping the floor with them.

Mopping the floor with what?! How about the F6 is just that fast. I'd say DOO better get thier 700 moving or they'll be trucked over by an F6........
