Well. I have not been on in a while. I got out 5 times this year on my sled. I picked it up in Sept 2020. 2009 Ski Doo 4 stroke 1200. 130HP+ HAHA.

Slapped about 1200KM (750 miles) this year.

I have a 2011 Yamaha Venture RS, 900, book says it has 120 HP, I only put about 1000 km on this year. I remember years ago putting over 5600 miles on a brand new sled in one winter.

Yea they are fast, no real smooth place to wind them up around here tho. 4cly 1000cc Sportbike engine with different tuning & the clutch is geared down from the factory so the clutch doesnt explode over 10000rpms lol. I cut the secondary springs in the carbs & put a softer primary clutch spring in it so it starts out sooner, instead of the 'high stall torque converter' effect, which always seemed to dig a hole you would get stuck in 😮

@ATC4ever , that sled looks like a missile !!   100MPH ????  

I'm not sure there's a sled made now a days (other than the economy sleds) that won't do 100 mph.

I had my Custom Turbo Yamaha Apex doing 137 across Lake Gogebic in the UP of MI, (close/ish to retro) and that had a 162" track. And you're correct Fish,1000 lb missle is what that sled was.

(fwiw, my wife now wears the sled on her finger)
