Inside info from the cat factory

3297 43
My friend is a cat mechanic and went to service school in thief river last week. He told me they had an F7 with a wheel kit on a runway doing 130+ mph..........also he said he saw an F7 with 800 jugs that was a prototype. theF8 was 170hp but only ran on 110 octain fuel.......you can bet on a consumer model F8 soon and expect about 155hp.

My service manager said the same thing about the F8, said it is a possible pre-production release candidate for Jan-Feb. Have to wait and see though. I hope not, be hard to come up with the cash for it, but I like many of you will be trying..... :D :D :D :D :D

Just another thought, even better, a F7 to F8 upgrade, consist of jugs, pistons, and ECU...

God that would be great!!!!!!

I think these are all pipe dreams...Don't count on anything but maybe an F6...if that...Don't get me wrong I would love to see an f8 or whatever..But remember then that will FOR SURE beat the zr900...Cat can't really do that.. That would be like shooting yourself in the foot. The F7 is bad enough...(close to the 900) :wacko:

Insurance company said they have a real hard time insuring anything ove 800cc. She said "Nick, you will pay out the nose for anything over 800cc!" I may have to wait a couple years, but I AM NUTS ABOUT SEEING, AND POSSIBLY, RIDING ONE!
