I have my sights on a 2001 SXR 500 and I was wondering how much HP's they have?

80-85 hp. Its an oldschool cylinder-reed (not case reed) engine, so its not in the same league as a 500 XC or F5.

I have a 2001 SXR 500 and it one of the most reliable sled I have ever owned. Granted I personally have only owned Yamaha sleds so I haven't had much trouble. But really, my 500 is actually faster than many think, I have run through the radars at 95 numerous times, for a 500 that is pretty fast. Also mine has 5400 miles on it and it still starts on the second or third pull every time. It is reliable and does not foul plugs. I have only fouled two plugs since I bought it three years ago. I only run Yamalube in it and that is a key to a reliable good running Yamaha. I would definetly advise you to pick the sled up if possible. It should be fast and if not a little tuning in the clutch will make it fast. They are very reliable and I have never had a complaint about mine yet.
