Sled: 95 XLT 600 Special
Hey guys.... im looking at buying a 93 Wildcat 700. Do all of these for this year come with EFI? Is the EFI system any good? Do you guys know of any common problems with this sled? What do you guys think? Is this a good sled or am i asking for trouble?

Sled: 94 WildCat
I did some reading here in past posts about the 93, 94 wildcats. There were mixed reviews. There can be stator problems and there is the possibility of efi concerns in general. (sensors and elect. connections) Mostly I read about concerns with the battery needing to always be in top condition. Low or no battery power = no start.

I bought a 94 at the end of last season. I have not had much time to try it out yet but I am liking the 2 pull starts, and seems to want to run strong.

I really feel that no matter what sled you have, if it was bought used and the prior owner(s) did not take care of it, then it could be a headache.

I say go for it Wildcats rock.

Sled: Crossfire 6
I just traded my 1993 700EFI Wildcat this fall with 7900 miles on it. Over the years I replaced the battery a couple of times and last winter replaced the fuel pump. I think I also replaced a shock in the skid. Other than that I had no problems with the sled.

In 1993 it was available with carbs - I'm not sure about other years. It is a great handling sled but is also a very heavy sled. The seat is pretty hard and so is the suspension. This makes for a harsh ride if you're riding rough trail. It always started within 3 pulls and nicely warmed itself up while I got my helmet and gloves on.

I have heard that those 700's had a bad reputation for being unreliable but I had very few problems.

Mine worked real good. I never had a problem with it and it was an EFI. I think it is a good sled. But it is heavy!! My 99 ZRT 600 is a way better handling sled than the 93 Wildcat I had. I think you will really like it. it is not a slow sled by any means. I used to bury the needle like nothing.. Good luck whatever you decide. Rammer..



Love My New Sled!
