Has any body had trouble with the 2006 MXZ 600sdi Adren's top speed.
Just purchased this machine about 2 months ago and can't seem to get more that about 80mph. Also top rpm is only 7800 with the clutch set at click no.6??????

Is it running rough.If not you may want to take it back to dealer, let them fix it.I just bought new 06 600hosdi few months ago and i am not having any trouble with it.That sled should do 100+.I am 200lb guy my speedo read 103. I dont know how accurate it is.I have not been clocked with radar gun yet.Good luck. I wish i could be of more help to you. I know with sdis if you let them idle too long they can foul plugs. good luck again

The machine seems almost the same as when it started out..Seems like it has never broken it self in.

Bought my sled brand new got it broke in on our first time out in the U.P. Took it easy for the first 300 miles, then would open it up every now and then, saw 105 on the digital read out, guessing it was actually around 95-98 actual though. Dealer says it should run around 108 actual. I would like to think that it is possible but I am not sure. My clutch setting was at #4 when I got it, backed it off to #3.

Check to make sure your belt is running 1/16" - 1/8" out of your secondary. Your track may also be too tight. A lot of dealers seem to set them tight. And check your chain tension every 100 miles during breakin.

Also you should check to make sure your primary is shifting all the way out. Take a permanent marker and draw 3 lines from the bottom of the sheave to the top. Take it out for a ride and really hammer on it a few times. Check to see how much of the line is remaining. You should be about 1/4 inch from the top of the sheave.

Other than that I would take it to the dealer....

Good luck

Get a new belt and see if that helps. I am thinking that you may have the wrong belt. If it is running good, it has to be clutch related.

It does have more than 300 miles and ten hours on it right? If not I think think the program doesn't let it loose until then. Check you track tension! If too tight that will drag ya down quite a bit too. Had mine to a buck with little over 300 miles so yes it will doo it-at least on the speedo.

If it runs "Normal" till around 65-70 mph, then falls on it's face, check the vacuum line running to the Rave Valves. Buddy had a pinhole in his where it had been rubbing and the valves weren't opening. BIG difference when fixed. Worth a look anyway.

I am 200lb guy my speedo read 103.
the speedos are not very acurate especially at the high end... 95 is about tops on a stock 600 with GPS... and that takes a whiel to get too! 85 is easily atainable and fast... it creeps to 95...

this is my 2nd 600SIi and they both have been exactly the same-

Should hit the century mark on hard pack, no problemo.......I have riden with about 4 600SDI's and all have been just a wee bit slower than my carb model........but right in the hunt........around 100 on my speeedo........which must be fairly accurate, cause GPS indicates about 97mph...

I had the exact same problem,,, You couldnt tell by looking at it, but my vacuum line melted from resting on the cycinder, thr casing only had a little melt spot, wich was barely noticeable, but the rubber hose inside melted in half and also melted both ends shut , so when it was on the computer, everything thing showed perfect... One vacuum line and you will only do 80mph, both lines damaged and you will only do about 65mph... That was my problem... BRP should have made the lines a little longer to keep them away from the top of the motor..
