2000 Yamaha MM 700, Good? Bad?

Hi guys.
Can anyone give me any feedback on the 2000 Yamaha MM 700. I recently purchased this sled in great condition and very low Kms. Track is 141" with 2" paddles. Anyone aware of history, what to look out for or general tips on this machine?
Thanks.

My friend bought a used Mountain Max 700 last winter and burnt it up on his second ride. Not necessarily the sled's fault, but -shrug-. One cool thing about them is the fact that ANY trailing arms off ANY similar Yamma sled will fit right on, it's easy to replace them if you happen to bend one.

Talking

Thanks Red Rider,
I have heard that jetting can be finicky on the triples. Here in BC we ride at quite a variation of altitudes which has caused the demise of many o sled. Thanks for the tid-bit on the trailing arms. Good to know.
It's snowing in the hills here in BC!!! Won't be long now

Cheers.

Put on "Dial-a-jet" set up on the carbs, allows you to adjust on the fly for the variations of elevation and temp.

I have ridden a 2000 MM 700 since 2000. Great sled, Variflow fixes
any jetting problems. The 141 original track came apart so I
replaced it with a 151. no other problems.

Thanks Yamaman.
Another jetting feature(Variflow) which I'm not familiar with but sounds well worth looking into.
Cheers and thanks for the tip.
