My next sled will likely be an '06 or '07 MXZx 550. Since I ride in the woods and off-trail most of the time, this should be a fun sled. I think the lightweight is one of the best features.
and you can't beat the dependability of a ROTAX fan cooled motor!

How much weight did the 1.5" track add? Are any special modifications required to fit this track?

Thanks!

we have an 06 550f at are dealership i was looking at it alot besides me being a speed freak it looks like a fun sled to ride around since it's so light and it has good power for trails and whatever else but what type of top speed are you getting out of it?

80 mph isn't a problem, accel gets alittle thin over 75.
I'd think it may hit 90 if the surface was tight (and cold) and you were willing to hold it long enuf.
Has surprising pull and being light it is quite a pleasure to ride.

MXZ 800 HO- 474 lbs. (dry*)
MXZ 550X- 430 lbs. (dry)
*Keep in mind you have to add some weight for the coolant.

Top speed on mine (on GPS) is 83.9 mph (speedo said 87). I'm sure if you were on smooth ice and it was very cold and you crouch below the windshield, you could be up in the 85-87 range.

Thats pretty impressive for that sled. I'd love to try one sometime. I think it would be a blast.

As with most "Dream O Meters" , the fans reads high by at least 5 mph. I could pull just over 90mph on the speedometer on mine last year under loooong run ideal cold hardpack/icey conditions. BUT the GPS read 84.9. Still a respectable speed for a fan. Under trail running, on snow conditions, you're lucky to get an actual honest 80mph out of it.

HA, ha.
Don't worry, all sleds are like that. When someone tells you how fast their sled is, unless it's GPS or radar, it's not accurate.
