Default 7000 opinions please

Am looking at a 2014 zr 7000 limited and a 2015 7000 rr. Anybody have either of these sleds and am trying to learn differences between the two. Thanks for any help.

I have a 2015 ZR 7000 El Tigre which is much like the limited as far as front shocks and slide action rear suspension. They are aggressive but not like the RR models.


If you are a aggressive big bump and high speed rider the RR is your sled, if not the limited will fit you nicely

I own a 2015 rr and i will say they are very stiff. I replaced the front evol shocks with elkas because i don't ride aggressively enough i just liked the graphics package.

I have a 14' xf7000 ccsp...its a 141' so I'm in the proclimb suspension department. Clutch went to team clutches in 15' vs cat in 14', I believe the keyed ignition switch relocated to a better spot...not sure of any other major changes except clutching?

Team clutches came on 2016 models. I would look for a 2016+ model LTD with thr QS3 shock package.

I agree with this! And then get some adjustable primary clutch weights to bring up the peak engine rpm to really let the engine perform.

Even the 14 ZR Limited rear suspension was stiff, I had to have mine re-valved and I weigh 250 with gear.
