Welcome to the forum. They are both good platforms rev and fire-cat. 800 rev is a nice combo for sure.

Depending on your rev motor that you had, the f-7 should be faster. F-7's are hot. Good quick sleds

as far as sno-pro or not. If it was a sno-pro it should have clickers and a knob. than yeah its a sno-pro. any f-7 is a good platform to start with

You just need to make sure it isn't beat and unmaintained.

Do a compression test, if the top end has never been freshened it's probably due.

It's ready if it hasnt already been done! Again do a compression test@WOT! Use that fact as a purcasing tool! Get the price down atleast a coupla hundred! And really thats about all a top end is!

And of course, Yamaha trumps them both!

If you have good equal compression, you may be able to avoid a top end for some time. Make sure you do a compression test before purchasing.....

'05 Yamaha RX1 ER 1000
'93 Yamaha Phazer II LE 485
'96 Polaris Ultra SP 700 - SOLD!!

2013/2014 miles: 290
2012/2013 miles: 654
2011/2012 miles: 737
The sled is fixed... Now my wallet is broke..
