Sled: 03 F7 Sno Pro
07-08 Mileage: 600+
06-07 Mileage: 100
What is the difference between a 2003 F7 vs. a 2003 F7 Sno Pro? I see that the Sno Pro is slightly heavier, so I'm guessing it's reverse???

Thanks.

"Suspension and Track"

Could you be a little more specific??? Like, how is the suspension different on each sled and how is the track different on each sled?

Thanks

Cool

I persnally have th standard f7efi 2003.. The standard version is like the guy's above said suspension and track.. The standard f7 is a bit lower also the sno pro is a bit taller about 2 inches front and back seen this in a issue in snow x magazine.. The sno pro will beat the regular f7 out of the hole in most conditions-except for Hard packed surfaces also thegular f7 will handle better in the trails because of the lower center of gravity thats in an ac brochure.. The pro is alot stiffer to ride but it;s what you prefer.. I've rode both and can ride better than my friends on eithier so it is pretty close..I personally prefer the sno pro. they will beat any sled out of the hole 99%of the time ..I aso put a sno pro track on my regular f7 1.375 great change same as pro in deep snow now to..

Sled: 05 F7 standard EFI
I have both a 05 F7 standard and a 04 F7 sno pro...the sno pro doesnt handle as well on the trail, it sits up higher and you have to learn your weight harder to one side to keep the ski's on the ground. The sno pro gets better accleration down low, but it looses some top end with the deep lug track.

For an overall trail sled i really like the standard better. Unless you are a big guy
