With Dennis Kirk's large selection of aftermarket parts, you will be able to climb higher and see your buddies far below you. And had got to put 70ish miles on it in Feb. Dry, the sled weighed just 476 lbs. It will have good showroom appeal, but you might want to purchase an optional windshield to snap on when the temperature dips into the minus teens and lower. Only a couple surprises, cost me about 450. The Polaris Dragon was a very popular release for its power and mountain climbing ability. However, with all the fluids added and a full Snow Studs traction package with 168 Top Dog studs featuring 1.
I have stripped it to the frame and will be going to the powder coating shop next week Motor is being long rodded by indy dan. The one i bought a few months ago had some goodies with it and i paid 2500. My turbo has had little to no problems. Do not hold them in the midrange, fluctuate the throttle, which you should do on any 2 stroke. Stock you will max out at around 97-100mph. I would recommend this sled to a guy who runs tight trail and boon-docking out of his backyard, maybe who hitches up a trailer for ice fishing or towing the kids, its a truck off trail but it is a heavy sled so don't get stuck. I'm very happy with this purchase and the work I'm having done.
We know that Polaris engineering has worked diligently to make the 10-inches of front suspension travel work for you in the rough and on groomed trails. We use data about you for a number of purposes explained in the links below. It's important to remember that not every sled that comes off the line makes exactly the same horsepower and it's nearly impossible to re-create the exact same dyno pull every time. This problem is widely rep. Another dyno-shop, DynoTech had success in reducing fuel flow from 110 lb. Polaris tells us it takes 300-400 miles for break-in and only after that will consumers see the Dragon's peak power.
I take it seriously and having the best is important to me. Whoa-power is essential when your thumb can tap into more than 150-hp. To view more specifications, visit our. But I knew going in I was going to be spending this money. Competition data We dynoed the 800R powerplant from Ski-Doo at 155 hp at 8,100 rpm, which was impressive.
None of that seemed to matter when ticking through big moguls, or putting the sled into flight, or flashing over stutter bumps. Yamaha competes in this power region too with its 149-hp Genesis 4-stroke engine. Having looked at these stats again, it seems as though everyone is chasing Ski-Doo's 800R motor as far as pure stock power production. Along with the latest shock package comes a revised suspension set up that includes a lower control arm and torsion bar system to better control roll and instill flatter cornering capability. Heck it was Polaris that conceived of liquid-cooled braking for racing and brought it to production sleds. It still had the original piston in it, I was not aware they were still in it since I bought it used.
This engine has a bog, randomly the engine will not respond and just bog down, sending you abruplty close to the windshield!! I am looking for a 600 or 700 iq to build for the wife now. I took the plastic cover off of my electronics so the voltage regulator actually gets some air to cool it. We also enjoyed the easy-to-manuever-around slimmer gas tank and seat. At Dennis Kirk, you will be able to find everything that you need to make your Polaris Dragon a mountain monster this winter. The Dragon also felt feathery light, even though it fell toward the middle of the pack as far as our wet-weight testing. We also heard that the rings on this engine are particularly hard for longevity and heat protection. This, along with the re-map as well as making sure our ethanol wires were always plugged in, were enough to help our Dragon run flawlessly, along with all the powerful, fiery, wicked engine performance that the factory had promised.
Now that I've gone completely through it. We send out our cylinders and give them our own specs to where we want the cylinder bore. Maybe it was how you sat and gripped the hooked handlebar set. The failure to follow correct procedures and use correct tools could result in serious injury or death. It also is apparent that this sled responds well to bolt-on mods and 93 octane gas. The aggressive decaling match the aggressive Liberty big twin's power.
The sled does have plenty. It fixed the hesitation on many of my friends sleds, and polaris covers the reflash. Still, we give the seat of the pants power edge to Polaris in both cases. The new seat and taller 5. However, its focus is the aggressive stand-up rider.
Polaris understands stop-and-go performance better than just about anyone in the powersports world. Carl's I understand also does a good job with the motors. On the trail, we would agree. Of course, when on the trail at 11,000 feet in the Colorado Rockies, the 800 twin begins to feel like a very good 600 would at sea level. You better hang on from 0-85mph. With the Power Commander, DynoTech saw more than 153 hp, very close to Polaris' stated figure for the Cleanfire Injected machine. The seat is ok but nothing like a doo seat.
