    hey guys, im new on ty, and im looking for a new sled this year, i want a 2001 sxr 700 but i want to know what is faster, the sxr or the sx and just out of the 700's! i hear the gearing, clutching and jetting is different but idk how much.

    I've never seen actual speed runs but I would say the 700sx is faster. Shorter travel skid and smaller lugs on tracks usually means faster. Jetting is the same by the way.

    Kind of like saying " which is faster...camaro or firebird? Pretty well same driveline in a different wrapper. The R does stand for the longer travel suspension. I am pretty sure you can dial in either one to spank the other in stock form. Clutch tuning goes a LONG ways!

    alright, well im just a teenager and i need something that i can stand up on and ditch bang without snapping my steering column on, like the exciter! and with a bit more travel, so i would think the sxr is the way to go. does anyone know the gearing differences, or their personal top speeds of each?

    I have had them both and I could make my SX-R beat my SX... but it had a few more mods... I would say set up correctly they will both run similar... plus the SX-R will be way better ditch banging and tail standing..LOL

    imo, it just depends on the person tuning them . which ever sled got the better person tuning it would win.
    Twostroke,because 1 stroke isn't enuf and 4 strokes waste two to many!

    If you're gonna bang ditches I'd go with the SXR, same motor, same chassis, some minor differences in the stock clutching and gearing, & more travel in the SXR. Oh and the 2001 SXR has the newer electronics and dual headlights.
