SXR700 vs. SXR600

I have the option of buying either the 600 or the 700. The 700 is a little out of my price range, but I want more speed and power. Can I make the 600 just as powerful as the 700 with silencers and adding tripple pipes? Or should I wait for a better deal on an SRX700? I know they have a higher HP and more power. Is there a difference between the suspensions? The 600 is a 2000 and the 700 is a 2001.

suspensions are considerably different between sxr's and srx's. riding style would dictate which sled you would be after.

whats the price difference between the 6 and 7? pipes make both alot more powerful but at a price. new at around $800, half that if you can find used(same pipes for both sleds).

no power gain from just a can, you need the triple pipes.

no problem.

for the basics the srx is a low slung lake racer with about 7" travel front and rear. the sxr is more cloned from the snowcross style sleds with around 9" travel up front and over 11" in the rear.

in the skid they use different shocks, different transfer rods, different front pivot arms, different length limiter straps, just to name a few key components.

up front the rad rods are different lengths and have different angles on them. tie rods are longer for the sxr, trailing arms are different to a degree, and obviously the shocks are different.

sxr is much more capable as a rough trail or ditchbanger as the srx fall short in the rough stuff do to lacking in suspension travel. two differently designed machines for 2 different disciplines of riding.

just a light touching on the main suspension differences, what else you need to know?

That's pretty good. I really like Yamaha but it's such an alphabet soup. Also, the name crossing between product lines is a head scratcher.

A little off topic but it would be cool to see a year by year break down of the two stroke Yamaha sleds from about 1996 on. Nothing crazy technical, just the model basics with correct names and yearly chassis, and engine changes.

Thanks for all the info. Really appreciate it. For me, I like to go fast and have the fastest sled in the group. I want to be the one that will win the lake races all day. But, I also like trail riding and a smooth ride. The speed is more important to me though. Which would fit better for me, a SXR700 or a SRX700??
