horsepower?

I just bought a 2000 zr 500. I was wondering the horsepower rating and what kind of top speed i could expect. It is carbureted!

i was with the impression that the 2000 zr's were around 95-98 hp..... there's more than a 5 hp diff b/t the 500 and the 600

if it was a ski-doo you would for sure be able to go 100mph.

my 500 used to be able to see 100. barely though. of course, it probably a bit heavier and older. then again its bored out.

now, it wont see past 85 probably because my clutch decided it wants to engage higher now that its sat for awhile.

I finally tried out the zr 500 last night. I ran it down a 2 kilometer snow covered gravel road and the speedo got to 100 mph. As to how accurate it is, i don't know. Also raced my friends 1997 formula 500, beat him by 4 sleds to 1000 feet. We are both stock with 96 studs each. I was quite surprised by the 500's power!
