    Default 98 SRX 700 vs 97 Polaris Ultra spx se

    Love the new forum. Got a buddy talking smack about his piped ultra, says it's the fastest thing around. What are his chances against my 98 SRX? stock srx, with the loaded 8dn20 set up,www primary spring, green secondary spring and a 51/43 helix. I know set up correctly these Ultras can make 135+ hp, driver weight is the same. Fire away.

    If I was a betting man I would say you got him, but I'm not and you never know.
    Besides clutching what other mods have you done? What are you running for a track? Do you have studs?
    2001 SRX 700 & & all now

    Run them and see.


    Those ultras when pipes were pretty stout, I wouldn't assume you will beat him, although I would wager you would win on the SRX, traction being equal of course.
    Toys:
    2000 xc600sp VES, 1997 venture 600, 1994 indy 500 efi, 1987 indy trail - none completely stock

    1997 suzuki TL1000S VTWIN sportbike -def not stock

    1978 Ski Nautique 19'6" Martinique 351W- not stock either

    No other mods besides the clutching, and adjustable transfer rods. the sled had a new 1" camoplast track on it when i bought it, i think an energy? will be studded next week, I have only put 65 miles on the sled since i owned it, and can see they have traction issues.

    piped ultras properly set up are pushing 150ish hp & run hard. We have a few of em in our drag race circuit here & they are no slouches when tuned properly.

    A few years back I watched a guy with a piped Ultra 700 doing radar runs...probably around 1000...F7s and SRXs were running 99-101 mph....he was running 107-110..He raised a few eyebrows with that sled causs it looked like a pile o crap but ran hard...big fat dude to boot lol.

    Ok so I had a stock ultra a few years back. It was a great sled other than every other 700 would always be faster . With no power valves why does adding pipes give that sled so much more . That said there was another dude a round that had a ultra that he made into an 800 and it had triple ppipes. I A thought he re we go time to run . Gotta serious spanking, but they always made fun of the dude cause everytime he would ride it he wouldn't make it 100 mile without blowing up.
    Guess what I found as I came around the corner, an ultra with the hood up.

    Took a look at the polaris the other day, and it is a 97 spx se not a 96 like he said, the engine is being rebuilt now lol, but the race is on in a week or 2, I had a xcr 600 new in 97, and that one was a huge pos, wondering how much better the ultra would be?
