Anyone have any thoughts on their new sleds? I'm not a huge fan of their new chassis but you can get their cross fire chassis with their new 1000cc or 800cc 2-stroke twins.

Some of the features are realy nice. I mean all the adjustable stuff. And I'm confident the new Suzuki's will be a force to be reconed with, I just hope for their sake it won't be '03 all over again...

The M1000 looks real good, and I'm glad they finally did something to the rubber-band suspension on it. But I would NEVER buy a first year A-C, EVER!

All that ajustable stuff adds weight and will come back to haunt you after a few thousand miles and everything begins working loose.

I think the 800 and 1000 cc 2-Strokes will only be available with the old Firecat / Cross-Fire chassis.

If you want all of the adjustable stuff, I think you'll be stuck with the new (575 lb. !!!) chassis and 1000 cc 4-Stroke V-Twin.

From what I can tell the firecat chassis is being replaced by their new chassis. The f-8 is in the new chassis.

Here HCS link

Here's nuther HCS link 2

F8 142 HP, 500#, 527 with ES & rev

F1000 162 HP, 515#, 542 w/ ES and rev (yes it's a 2 stroke)

darn close to Yam #'s and lower the Doo HP. I can only imagine the build quality with all the adjustable stuff. I think the grade 9 shop class is starting production next week.

I hope they're fast and it helps Doo find a way to put 150 HP in a Rev Chassis.

I'm not sure why they did it. Everybody knows the F7 was the fastest sled ever made. It beat Mach's with 1 plug wire hangin off and if you ask a Cat guy they all tell ya they've never had a single problem.

We all noticed in Gaspe the lack of F and SaberCats. I counted 11 in 1000 miles. Last w/end in southern ON from Buckhorn to Kearney I saw 7 in 550 miles. I saw more Fusions than Cats. Wonder why ???

Do they have a 2-stroke 1000? or is it only 4-stroke?

Pay attention little snoozy. Both pics I posted are in the M CHASSIS not the F-Cat chassis. The new JAG 4 stroke is an 1100 and the new F-cat and M sled 1000's are 2 strokes

I couldn't have said it better myself, except that the 800R makes 150+ hp.

The new F8 only has 140hp and weighs 500lbs?!
Seems like a step backward from the f7 and even the current rev 800ho.
