Ever rode a Doo Gade with the 800 etec? Those light weight rockets are a hoot. I had a 2015 XRS Gade. I had a 2016 turbo cat last year and the raw power was addicting. So much so that I ordered a Sidewinder LTX LE :buttrock:
I was not focus on the weight ,just wondering ,and no I don't carry my sled on my back I ride it. Sorry for upsetting you,it was a ?
Ok if you read Awerican snowmobilerNot surprised that the 1st new topic about the SW is it's weight.....LOL...it will never end but then again why should it? Yamaha keeps stepping in it by offering crossover and mountain ability sleds that can't come close to the comp. Sure the turbo will be great for shooting straight up a slope but tree riding and sidehilling....not so much.
Will it be a great midwest, Canadian and Eastern trail sled ...you bet, but getting much more than a 137 track will compromise the trail manners. I will be looking at a 129 this coming firesale season.
One of Yamaha claims on this sled is that the HP to weight ratio is very good.
If we believe the SW is 630# div by 180 claimed hp we get 3.5
AXYS SB 800 490# at 153 HP is 3.2
And 140# diff is like saying your sled is just as easy to maneuver and unstuck with your wife/GF or life partner on it with you.....LOL....not a bad idea if they were actually there to help dig and hoist!
If you have children, in the future, i would suggest you consult them with your math questions/problems :roflmao:Ok if you read Awerican snowmobiler
They have the wet weight of sleds in there and your Axys SB 800 weight in at 570 #
Also the Dyno report on the Sidewinder are at 204 hp:frantics::frantics:
So that puts the Axys at 3.72hp per pound:stirthepot:
And the Sidewinder at 3.08hp per pound:frantics:
So math guru how do you figure the hp to weightIf you have children, in the future, i would suggest you consult them with your math questions/problems :roflmao:
If you dont have kids, theres this neato cool thing called google that will help you with math, among other things.
Do a google search on how to calculat hp to weight ratios.
Your not even in the correct galaxy with that post
:roflmao: :roflmao: :laff: :laff:
LOLSo math guru how do you figure the hp to weight
And don't break the other guys balls who put his cals up
Sidewinder .325 hp per pdLOL
I just told you.
If you do a google search for hp to weight calculator, you can punch in any weight and hp numbers and it will do the math for you.
Your numbers aint even close.
Feel free to check it out.
Ill wait here for you to report your findings and post the correct numbers. Lol
