wondering what shape my motor is in . was out on the weekend and punched on throttle to see what it would do and got 75 mph , is this good or bad for this year and size of touring sled?, was talking to a friend and he said i should be able to easily get 100 mph plus,not that i drive at this speed all the time.thanks also 9600 km on motor
My xlt will do 90 mph on the speedo...Its a '96 and has 5700 miles on the clutches. I just don't think the '96-'97's did much better than that. Factor in all the wear in the clutch and that's probably all I will ever get. A buddy of mine said his '98 xlt would do 120 on the speedo. Polaris either gave those more teeth on the top, or he's a b-s'er.
thanks, was wondering if it might be something to do with the clutch and the fact that it has high mileage. I dont really mind as i dont usually go all that ape on the sled. would a clutch rebuild do anything for the sled or would that be a waste of money. track is good and plugs are new no leaks at boots. seems to have good power , just didnt want the thing to leave me on the trail cause of a failing motor.
