265 miles the sled rocks. Putting 102 studs and 8" carbides. The only things that I would change are the hand and thumb warmer controls are hard to adjust while riding and the backlight on the speedo is a wee bit dark.
280 miles-I've bottomed the center shock a few times so I'm going to try the highest coupling setting to see if that helps. I hate to lose that ski lift though. If that doesn't work then I guess I will have to change to the heavier springs (I weigh 220) and I would like a larger storage space in the back. Other than that-I wouldn't change a thing. Oh yeah-except for all of that yellow writing on the thing-I would of like to see a graphics package available that used traditional Cat colors-a black sled with purple and green flame graphics would have been sweet!
222 miles on the F7 standard. Runs strong, suspension is plush, but bottomed several times on 2-3ft bumps.
On faster trails, the beast loves the woods. Yes, it pushes in the corners..... Does not handle like my 97 ZR440 with coupling blocks.
I have 6" Bergstrom Skeg, tighten the front springs almost to the max. no relief.
I have shortened the limiter strap ~ 1" so this weekend will tell.
My black F7 SnoProsled absolutly rocks! It is the fastest, best handling sled I've ever ridden! To make it even better I'm making the following changes next week. 153 X 1.45" picks and 8" shapers, AC running board grips (yellow heat exchanger protector with gnarly grips), footwells drilled and flared, windshield bags, mirrors (cause thats where everyone will be), and (don't laugh) a reverse kit to protect my back!
The suspension is perfect for me at 190 #s. It sucks up bumps and transitions far better than my 2001 ZR600 with clickers and hd springs.
I LOVE THIS SLED! :wub:
