was that on a warm day or something? Full tank of gas? heavy rider? suds? big lugs? anything wrong with the sled? My 05 550f gsx did 83 easily on the lake. Ive heard the 500ss has around 110hp. my 03 f5 does around 95mph. 88mph seems 2 slow. The lakes we go on r up 2 4 miles or longer sometimes.
I had an 04 500ss stock did 103 on indian lake with 144 studs on a nice packed strip, buddy same sled stock no studs hit 105 gps.with my AAEN pipe, and Rk tek head i could hit 100+ in 1000ft on ice every time, sled pulled like an animal with the head.
They are doing a lot faster than i have seen. My 05 got around 90 miles on hard pack snow and the 600 HO switch back could easily take it in the quater mile. But the 500ss is a great sled. But it's not a 600HO.
