There were no F7's produced in 2007.

I know that a 2007 F8 is estimated 503lbs dry, according to specs on Arctic Cat's website; http://www.arcticcat.com/snow/sled.asp?id=745

Good luck on getting a wet weight.

A person could always ball park it by getting the capacity of the oil and coolant reservoirs and the gas tank and adding to the dry weight...?

There was a topic posted regarding weights on the new F series. Try doing a search. I can't recall if there were wet weights included on the topic or not.

I think it's great that Maximum Sled did this testing but it's hard to believe they didn't screw up some of the info.
They show a Doo GSX 500SS at 2 lbs less then a standard 500SS with no Estart. I have weighed Doo Estarts at 28 lbs alone.
The Estart adds less to an SDI Sled as they already have a small battery.

They show the MachZ without Estart as being 19.5 lbs more then a Blizzard 800 without Estart when Skidoo claims a 50 lb. difference. I can't believe Doo wouldn't be shouting this to the world if it were true. I assume either the Blizzard had Estart or more likely, they screwed up the MachZ testing.

Your point about the Blizzard having eStart makes sense since it gained almost 100lbs over dry, where the Mach didn't quite gain 70lbs. Who knows???

Congrats!

I'm really liking my F8 so far. Be sure to give it a look over first before you ride though. Some machines have been experiencing some factory hiccups, which you've probably read in the sticky's a the header of this forum.

Nice job Andy...I was just going to sort them after cutting and pasting. ;-)

Look at how the Jag weighs less than the LXR F1000 and a hair more than the F8 LXR...how is that possible???

The thing that limits the usefulness of their comparison is that they wieghed them with a full tank of gas (I believe) and the 'Cats have a larger capacity than the Ski Doos. Maybe a 20 lb. difference???

This is surprising :div20: :div20: Just to let ya know a buddy of mine just scaled his non es mach with 1/4 of fuel at 580 lbs.[/b]
580 lbs makes more sense. Add 8 Gallons of fuel at 6.13 lbs /gal and you get 43 lbs. added to the 580 lbs. or 622 lbs total. This number is far more consistent with previous weight reports on the Mach.

I love my new F1000. It doesn't feel heavy but had I seen this info first, I might not have bought it. I was looking for something that felt lighter then a Mach or RT Gade on the trail. The F1000 seems to fill that need nicely even if it is really heavier.
