I own a 2003 XC SP 600 as of this year and have ridden it once. I was curious as to people thoughts on the 2002 MXZ in comparison. Reliability, handling, power etc. I know my sled is about as bulletproof as they come but I rode a ZX 2000 Formula 600 for about a half hour and some aspects of it felt nicer but we were in a bunch of powder. Felt a little lighter and easier to steer. Maybe a little snappier but I also don’t have the best belt/cleanest clutches currently. Always wondered about the 02s specifically as it seems like any 800 is crap, 700 isn’t making parts anymore and the 600ho have ring problems.

I have a 2000 mxz 700. The sled is very fast and rides actually very good, I did a rev seat swap and what a difference it makes! Very reliable sled. I think you would like the zx chassis!

The 600 XC SP is one fantastic sled for it's era. Strong, fast, excellent handling, damned good ride, and reliable. Not to say the Doo is a bad sled........

I have an '02 MXZ 800 which is completely stock. My riding buddy has an '02 700 Edge. His Edge has an upgraded exhaust (pipe and can) and is re-jetted. They were dead even in speed until he replaced his track late last season. His Edge is slightly quicker now (it should be).

However I prefer the ride and handling of my MXZ. The front feels much more planted to the ground. I think his Edge feels too light in the front.

My I bought my MXZ 5 season ago from the original owner. It has been a GREAT sled. My only reservation it is very tough on gas and oil. The gas mileage is poor. right around 90 to 100 miles per tank.

Some years back I got a chance to ride an '02 MXZ700 for several miles. Even being a trailing arm sled, it rode and handled pretty darn good.

The ZX Doos were the best conventional sleds Doo ever built. Build quality and materials are much better than the Polaris also. Can't go wrong with a ZX
