Default F800 or F1100 Turbo?

Finally going to upgrade from my F7, haven't been following the 4 strokes at all, so basically what are the advantages/disadvantages of the 4 stroke over the 800 2 stroke?

800 is 95 lbs less... that did it for me. I'll never own another sled that is over 500 lbs dry weight.

Well four strokes burn cleaner, get better gas mileage, and that turbo is extremely easy and cheap to make stupid fast. Ofcourse the one downside is the weight. Hard to complain about either power plant as they are both power houses in their respective segments.

Well i heard the 1100 t is having lots of issues with the clutching and hyfax wear.

Personally the 800 is more reliable and better match for the f chassis IMO. 155 hp is more than enough anyway lol

I think it's closer to 163 HP for the 800 (according to Dynotech).

ucop, I'm thinkin bout upgrading from the ole '97 T-cat.
how does the 800 compare to a stock clutched & piped 900 T-cat?
Will I be lookin for more HP?
I put a rear skid in the tcat from a '02 zr800, simmons skis and fox shocks up front. it soaks up the rough stuff pretty good and carves the tight trails pretty good, but I just turned the big five 0 and am lookin for something that won't make me so sore keepin up with the younger dudes.

Thanks for the info so far, I ride mostly trails and not sure if the weight of the 4 stroke is worth it (not really looking for top end, but don't want a brick either). I would imagine the 800 is going to have the power I need but how much better is the 1100t in the mpg game?

The 800 motor has a real nice powerband on it. It won't have the legs like the four stroke but it pulls very hard up top. The f has the potential to be a strong lake runner but will need some tweaking with clutch weights and such.
As far as mpg, guys have been reporting 13-14 riding pretty hard so that should give you an idea. Don't think that's low either cause the Etecs don't get much better mileage than that.

You will love the 800 HO.The 1100 n a will probably not have enough power if you are used to an F7.I plan on trying the turbo next sled, main reason we do some long rides and I do not like carrying extra oil.Kind of tired of the smell too but some days that smell gets you in the groove.lol....

If 100mph makes you happy buy an800 two stroke if you wanna play with the big boys the 1100 is the only answer fact.
