2000 Polaris 600 Xc Sp or 680 Ultra??

My friend just bought a nice used 2000 600 XC Sp Polaris.
I have to admit,it really does fly!!
I have a 1996 Polaris 680 Ultra Sp with just under 4000 miles on her.
He thinks his sled will take mine on take off midrange and also top end.
I told him he is nuts!!
On take off I would give it to him.I honestly think that I would go sailing by him in no time.
I dont want to spank him bad but I will probably put my money where my mouth is this weekend.
We are supposed to get another 12-18 inches in the next few days.
I have an old snowmobiler mag with my sled in it.It claims that my 96 SP Ultra is about 113 H.P.
How many H.P.for the 2000 XC SP 600???

Im not sure on the hp from the 600 (115 maybe?)but if you put triple pipes on your sled, he wont come close to touching you. i put slp triple pipes on mine with a custom clutch kit from D&T dyno and the sled rips. Before i could barely beat my cousins zr 600 but now he cant come close to catching me at any speeds (takeoff, rolling, top end) its an awesome feeling.

I wonder, does the 600 have VES? if yes, then it has around 115-118, however, i dont think it does. if no ves, more like 110. the 680 is a tripple right? the ultra will loose on the go but it will be close on the top end. keep in mind a older sled with more miles on it may not have what it once did. let us know who wins, i am kinda leaning towards the 600 twin though. could be wrong.

just for the record i have a 97 spx(5000 miles) all stock with studs and i beat my dad's 2004 700 xc sp(3500 miles) no studs. i think the studs just helped on the start but i still beat him by 2-3 sled lengths on a lake drag strip in old forge, ny

the only thing is the spx is trippled piped and the ultra isn't but the those triple spx's and xcr's really ran.

the 2000 600 xcsp does have power valves i have the same sled and they run. my sled is extremly fast and i run with 700's and 800's but i got my money of the 600 xcsp. and for h/p numbers they are really around 118 to 120 and the 2000 600 xcsps were the fastest 600xcsp that polaris maid until 2005.

nothing runs like a deere

oh yeah i did fail to mention the spx's have triple pipes. my dad had a 1996 ultra sp and he got that up to 110 on a lake, im sure no non-modded 600 xc sp will go above 105

Lightbulb ultra 680 tripple

If the 600 can take the ultra, then you need to take better care of your sled.

When was the last time you looked at your clutch?

Check if you have the proper jets for your current weather condition!

Check the chain case oil level and all wheel bearing front to back
and track tession.

EG: I have a 1988, 400 indy that tops out at 97MPH.

A little care goes a long way.

Let me know how you make out.

This will smoke the 600

Hey I just thought of something else!!

Just drop your top gear one tooth and you will be having lunch before the other guy catches up.

This is what we did with my buddy ultra, he has the same sled.

let me know how it turns out.

The 600 XC probably makes a fraction more hp. I had an Ultra 680 SP, 1996, stock it was okay, then with the SLP triple pipes, night and day, a total world of difference.

The pipes are pretty cheap now through SLP, put em on, you won't be disappointed.

I was wondering what sizes mains and pilots you ran when you put the tripple pipes on. Also did you change the nozzles? thanks, brad

Tripple pipe

The problem with a tripple pipe is, you loose your bottom power
for going in the trail ect...

Have fun.

I know the pipes make the power in the upper rpm's but i still gained power in the lower rpm range. the power increase is noticable in the trails and doesn't hurt performance. Just my 2cents

Pipes

Hey thanks for the info i shall remenber that next time.

I never tryied it my self, it was just what other sleders i ride with had said when they had tripple pipes on there sleds.
They probably had other problems like jetting or other.

Thanks
