I seem to remember odometer on mine compared to my sabercat was off. I can't remember how much and which one would be correct. Good to know.

At one point in history AC was known to have some of the most honest spedos around. That being said with traction being a huge issue on snowmobiles being "right" doesn't mean a whole lot.

What I'm getting at is the sleds I was seeing 60ish MPH were all the old mechanical type speedometers. You guys are are all clocking on the new electronic units (why the needle is different' then the digital read out is a bit baffling). They are also the slightly less potent NA T660s (AC found a few extra ponies in 2004 if I remember correctly).

What am I getting at here? I was right! :P

What's unintended side effect? My '04 Turbo probably isn't as fast as I thought it was. You just had to do that didn't you?!

I'm so full of mixed emotions right now...

Yes you were, theres also time-to-wear. All engines begin to wear out once break in is complete. As does things with the sled. What can the OP do to improve it? If he has all this time, new driveshaft bearings, Greg once said after 5000 miles of use a clutch is pretty much wore out. And for me I would say the secondary too. New clutches, new jackshaft bearings, chain and sprockets, pull the skid, fix all the idlers and clean up and do everything you can on the motor, including a valve adjustment which I'm sure it could use one after 12 years. Ya it's a lot but it all can play a part. Now it's probably worth more than the sled to do all that. I did everything I listed on my 98 ZR600 and the bill so far on that one is about $2500 bucks, more than it's worth. But if he has all the time he could do some or all of that. Pretty much baselined then

My post was intended to be tongue in cheek.

You are correct though. My feeling is there's just so many variables you have to deal with in a snowmobile that it's hard to compare two machines.

Sounds like everyone's T660s are running well though so get out and use them!

Yes there are so many variables, Thats why the only thing he could start doing is just replacing all the consumables, as in bearings. and clutches. There is some drag in there somewhere and when you get rid of that it's free horsepower

All Jackshaft bearings were done 500mi ago by the dealer along with a full 10k service....whatever that was. Brand new secondary and belt. Ill probably pull and clean the primary after this season.

We got about 10" today and I'm headed out in the morning for an overnight trip to Eagle River and the first day of the vintage weekend. I love the removable seat...lots of "trunk space!

It poured here overnight and could hit 50 in the southern part of the state. It's suppose to cool off sometime tomorrow but the damage is done around me. I'm hoping the northern and western part of the state made out better, they had quite a bit of snow, we will see how it sets up.

The thing is they predicting the same exact thing for next week, maybe a little less rain but most of the week is going to above freezing which is really what we had last week as well. Two crappy winters in a row for my area.

OK, I won't tell you it's -11 F or -26 C here and more snow than we know what to do with. Trails are mostly open with lake crossing exceptions due to excess snow. And the T660 still starts without plugging it in.
