these spedos are not that accurate but ive had mine over the 100 mark trying to keep up to an 03 f7 and a 04 f6. those things are fast.

Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

Sled: F5 converted to F7
Keep in mind the speedos are not always very accurate. I did a lake run one time last year on a lake that had alot of powder on it. I expected to be slow and bogged down because of the conditions, and my speedo was reading 85. After about 2-3 miles of wide open, the top speed that the GPS recorded was 69. Same sled, same day we got on a hard packed, icy road and let 'er rip. Speedo read about 100, GPS read 98. Remember, the only accurate measurement of true speed is the GPS (speedo is only measuring how fast the track is spinning).

not at that time. im clutching it this year, and put a 1.6 inch track on. the trails around here are not your average trails. they blow in right away so its like breaking trail every time you ride. should work out good. i have wondered if the previous owner chipped it. it was owned by a guy that traded it in saying he tried alot of stuff to make it faster but decided to go bigger cc. its faster than most 600 cc's in my area. i beat a 2000 zr 600 by 3-5 sled lengths in the 1/8th mile 5 times in a row. the only difference between our sleds were, he was studded i wasnt, i was efi he wasnt, his was one year newer. it drove him nuts!

If you look under your ECU unit, ther is a small brass coloured plate. Behind that is the chip. Just carefully take of the small screws and look inside. That's where the chip resides. tell us what you see. If it is chipped, usually a pipe goes with it too. Maybe your sled is already clutched too? You will like the 1.6 track.

Yeah, had it in my ZR 600 too. Noticeable improvement. I believe you could use 92 octane with it. I have for years with no issues whatsoever. Had to cary Octane Boost for more remote areas...a small inconvenience.
