I have a 670 mxz and I am thinking of stepping up the game a little.

I think that I out ride the old 97 670 a little I am very very aggressive trail rider but I also like to explore a little and would like to take a trip to the deep power of the mountains in the future.. Here is my question will a rev gade still handle the trails?? I love the power of my 670 just enough but not over the top so should I choose the 600 ho sdi or the 800 ??? Will the 136 be the correct choice or should I go up to the 144 ?

My current sled is a 136x15x2, after all prior sleds being 121's. My next sled will most likely be a 144 Summit. To answer your question, to each his own, I love my 136, great on trails and awsome off trail, just looking for a bit more off trail. 800's for me, the extra power is nice off trail or at altitude.

I am on my second gade and would never look at a 121" again, It is awsome in off trail riding and does just fine on the trail, the 16" wide 136" long has the same foot print as the 144" track as well

The 136 will not be a problem with trail riding to say the least. As for 600SDI or 800PT, I opted for the 600SDI and have no complaints whatsoever with its power or speed. There is only so fast you can go on a trail.
As for off trail and higher altitudes, I can only speak about the off trail side of things and have no complaints with the 136 so far. I have ridden with 144s on the trail and they have no problems with them at all - from what I have seen and heard. I will say last year I had a 121 and will not be going back to one of them as I find the 136 to be better.

Is it true that the 136 and 144's are better as far as suspension wise on the trails. This past weekend I was in cable ,Wi and a few guys on long tracks were telling us at the bar that we need to ditch the 121's and our backs will thank us. I didn't know if it was because of newer suspension's than my old girl or the long track helped to soak it up..

What hp # is the 600 ho putting out stock.. and how would it compare to my 670? I don't want to buy a new sled with less power but don't want over kill either.

My 136" is studded and comparing it to my 121", the 136" is a lot harder to get the backend to slide through a corner. The 136" feels more stable on the trail and when the corners are icy, the 136" seems to handle the conditions better. I will never by a 121" sled again. The girlfriend also wants to dump the 121" for a 136" gade.


Can't speak on off-trail cause all I ride in WI are trails.

stretched my 04 MXZ 800 X out to 136, I will never buy a sled thats less than 136 again. Its way better in braking bumps, moguls, and regular chop. Its night and day difference off trail especially with the new gades having a 16" wide track. Unstudded I can slide around a corner with ease ....Tim
