was out riding with my friend who has a 02 zl600ss efi and my F7 firecat was getting significantly better gas mileage. we stopped several times at about 40 mile intervals and his was taking more than a gallon more than mine at a time. we got our sleds at the same time, and are within 20 miles of each other on the odometer. he has gone through a whole gallon of apv oil and i have only used half a gallon. he is worried and is thinking about taking it back to the dealer. also, an electrical plug on his zl came unplugged on his suspension and we cant figure out where it plugs back into. might be a good idea to shrink wrap the connectors? i wonder how good the 800zl is on gas? my dad has the 800zl ss efi and it is a great handling sled. the suspension is really plush and it handles WELL. my firecat will walk it big time though. :lol: the zl's are great sleds and i think arctic cat should tout the zl's more. seems like the mxz's of skippy-doos are their cash cows for them and thats all you hear about from skidoo arent they the same category sled of the zl?
