My buddys 1200 4tec "shorty" was consistently pulling 103 on gps with 109-11 on the dreamometer. Surprisingly quick out of the hole!

sounds like top end will be good enough for me. How well will they keep up accelaration wise to A 800? Iam not talking ones with clutch work, just like say a box stock F8? I really like the idea that when Iam trailriding i can pull up to the pump and be safe putting 87 in. ust seams like the saleman want to stear me to an ETEC.

i can keep up to 800s in the trails. your 1200 will actually handle better.

and no worries about 87. used it all winter and not 1 problem. it runs awesome on it.

I'm on a 800 etec for this season. I really wish I was back on a 1200 this season.. There fun sleds.. a lot of people knock on them but there usually people who have never driven them.
