is it an XLT block or Ultra based 600?? they are two completely different sleds!! if the cylinders are one block it is and XLT base motor, if they are seperate cylinders it is an Ultra based motor. we'll be able to help you out more with knowing what you're looking at. Brian.

i had one it was a pretty good sled didnt give me any probs. about 9-10 mpg mine had a clutch kit in it. full out run about a half mile on radar did about 106 was a very nice riding sled.96 xcr sp with stock tripple pipes.zrt6 or f3 600 probably was a little faster. if it was the regulart xcr 600 that was a good sled too

that sled has a few little issue to attend to. the fuel curves are way off, you need bigger needle jets to fatten up the midrange. the ignition advance curve could also be updated, call Hotseat for the reprogram. it costs about $70 to redue the CDI. a little reclutching and it will rip! those sleds have issues, but when straightened out they really perform.

To be exact if it is the reed valved individual cylinder triple piped triple, it is a beautiful black sapphire metallic in the first year Aggressive Body.

It is a 1996 600 XCR SP production was limited to only a couple sleds per dealer.

I put 4500 miles on mine in the first year, it had a flat spot in midrange which could be improved with carburetor changes, including drilling out the opening in the carburetor that provided flow for the pilot jet system. Many also had good luck with UFO system under the slide valves to improve throttle response.

It has an Xtra-10 rear suspension, a non CRC front end and a four driver drive axle. Four Fox shocks were used.

Make sure you have oil in the compartment you can see thru the sight gauge on the front of the crankcase. This drives the waterpump, it takes 0W-40.

i think i have a hotseat clutch kit in my garage for that sled yet if interested only missing 1 spring i think. was way better than the stock clutching. this thing was cluched like a total bag of shit out of the box too.
