Sled: 1991 Wildcat MountainCat
ATV: N/A
2007 Mileage: N/A
I have a 1991 Wildcat Mtn. Cat and I like it. I am not sure how much I would agree with the "they're heavy" thing, as my longtrack version weighed 531 lbs with a 1/8 tank of gas and about 1/4 tank of oil. I like the starightforward handling the AFS chassis gives, and mine with some mild porting and stock pipes will pull the skis at a moments notice while in powder snow. The 700 twin does tend to vobrate quite a bit, but other than that I would say its a pretty reliable motor. With the smaller driver cogs and lower gearing, mine sems to do about 70ish top end on the trails in Colorado, and with the stock setup, I am sure she would pull 100 no problem.

Sled: 71 793 KK
ATV: 1969 dodge charger
I owned a 1992 wildcat 700 EFI(afs). it was a holdover, i bought new in 1993. The EFI model was the exact same from 91-92. That sled killed any of the carbed versions in a drag race. Expecially the 92 AFS style carbed sled, which was a pig. I have many good memories of that sled. I even chipped it from the Arctic race dept, and ran it successfully in numerous grass drags that summer. If I were to buy one now, being its 15 years old, I wouldnt pay more than $800-1200 for one.

as to the 92 wildcats, i meant the 92 AWS was kind of a dog. they didnt make a afs carbed version, only EFI. sorry.

I have owned 3 of them, 88, 89, 90. All are good sleds. The 650 and 700 lower end are the same until the crank bearing size was changed in the 90's.
My 1990 Wildcat runs 127 - 130 mph in 1000' on ice most weekends. It has a couple of modifications to the engine
A stock Wildcat with a gearing change would run about 105-107 mph in 1000' on ice.
Don't try to install large drivers and a paddle track on this one, won't clear the bulkhead.

I had a '91 700, and I still miss it. Wish I still had it! It was a quick sled, and could beat my '95 ZRT800 in an impromptu drag (with drivers trading off). It would top out at about 110mph versus my ZRT's 115 or so, indicated. I ended up doing a lot of mods to it: 2" paddle, Boyesen reeds, TM-40 carbs from an 800, 144x2" track with xtra-10 suspension, narrowed 37" stance, removed swaybar, removed airbox & installed pods, geared down. It would outclimb my '01 Mountain Cat 800, although less comfortable as a trail/bump rider. It wasn't that heavy overall.
