    Default The difference between SRX, SXR, V-Max ?

    Hi everybody !.

    I`m currently riding a 03 RX-1 ER that I bought last year, leftover from 03.
    I`m only 20 years old and I`ve found out that the RX-1 is too expensive for me, had to take a loan and each month I`m struggling to get it paid.

    Therefor, I`m selling it. But, I will buy a cheaper sled.

    These are my options:

    V-Max 700
    SXR 700
    SRX 700

    I`m thinking of a 1998-2000 model.

    I live in Norway and there are very few trials here (intended for sleds), so we ride everywhere you can say.

    I`ve fallen inlove with the manouverability (spelling?) of a little sled with 307belt, but ofcourse now and then you get stuck but that`s just fun.

    The clue is that we don`t ride in hard packed trials so I want a sled that can handle some powdersnow without getting stuck imediately. A sled with a short belt don`t like powder, but I know that. What sled (out of these three) are the best for a "overall" sled?. Who of them handle powdersnow best?.

    My friends rides are: 1994 V-Max 4, 1996 V-Max 600XT and 2005 RS Vector MTN.

    I have found an SXR Mountain, but I wonder how hard it is to manouver compared to an SRX/V-Max/SXR.


    Here we are.


    This may be a confusing post but I just want to hear what you think about these sleds! .

    Well, if you're riding with a friend that rides a V-Max 4, then any of the models you have listed will stay afloat longer than your buddy in the deep powder. I would think the SXR Mountain you have found would suit your needs fine.
    "FUN FACT- I can no longer eat pickles because I got sick on bloody marys last fall.
    01 SRX 700, ported, heads shaved, heelclickers, racepak udx digital dash w/3 egt's, bender can, cbperformance 44" wide front end, C@A skis, hacksaw track, expert x, 5 inch rox riser w/firecat bars
    00 SRX 700, all stock, except for a 2 inch riser

    simply amzing.....nice pic man...bu ayways yea any of those sled will do.i have a vmax 700 and that doesnt do the best in the snow. i think its because of the clutching and i was runng stock track. i think the sxr is beter because it has the long travel i have the short travel which isnt good for any powder but on trails its unbeatable i love it
    Eat my dust...

    Hi guys! .
    Thanks for all the replys.

    Ejcamaro, I guess my friend with the V-Max 4 tend to get stuck easier then me on my RX-1, but actually he rode everywhere I rode on the trips we made this winter.

    Seanmurhpy26, glad you liked the pic, maybe I`ll post some more. If the SXR`s rear suspension has longer travel, I guess it`s better in loose/powder snow. I`ve noticed that many sleds tend go "hang" on the "bootboards" because the rear end of the sled is too low.

    Millinocket rocket, glad you liked the picture!.

    Timebomb & Ryanwillden, so you think I should go for a Mountain Max?. I weigh around 65kg`s and sometimes I feel to light to handle bigger sleds, like, I turn the handlebar and hang out on the side of the sled, but still it goes straight forward .

    What about an SXR / V-Max 700 with 38/307/51mm belt?. Maybe change the gearing so that it pulls better / less top speed.

    what do you think?.
