110hp lol at least that is what they got at the AMS shootout

It needs a power breather as that was the 1st year of the ZRT 2 chassis and its airbox was extremely restrictive

It should be good for about 145+ hp

The 95-98s in the old style chassis where in the 150hp range

I don't know if FB's HP quote from the mag is correct or not, but it could be. The 99 & up ZRT800s had very restrictive intake & exhaust systems that pretty much choked the life out of it.

The 98 & 97s are said to consistantly pull 150hp on dynos after the fat factory break-in jets are swapped out. Those 98 & earlier chassis had lots of room up front and came with well tuned pipes & intakes right from the factory.

I have a really good deal for you, a 2000 with 150HP that when you light the candles you want to be hanging on real tight! $3,800.00 US!

So because the 97-98's were so good out of the box, aftermarket stuff like pipes and rejetting won't have as big an impact, right? What will trail pipes/jetting add to an early chassis sled? 10-15bhp?

Sled: Cats
They weren't smoking anything, the calibration team was though.

With the CDI update and the proper jetting they make 145-150hp like the earlier models. Nothing wrong with the airbox with the right calibration. They screwed the pooch on jetting in the name of less intake noise.

Think about that the next time a trail is shut down because of loud sleds.

The shooting stops when the looting stops.

Every time I read a thread like this, it really makes me wish I still had my '96 Zert8 RIP. That sled was wicked, and handled better than most lighter sleds too.

That's what I like to hear! If my new '98 ZRT8 handles as good as my '96 Pantera, but has better rear suspension, I'll be stoked. The rough stuff was too much for the 8.5" rear suspension, but on a moderate-to-smooth trail where sheer suspension travel didn't come into play, it could corner with some impressive newer sleds. The front end was just planted on that thing.

I'm hoping that with just 1,400 miles on the ZRT, I can get away with not having the Fox shocks rebuilt for one more season.

Ya gotta experience one of these sleds with the front end mod. It has the motor, it has the power to make it feel light... And it has the handling, the bump absorption, and the 100mph + stability that you just don't get in a new top-of-the-line lightweight.

One thing the new lightweights do better is land easier than a heavier sled. But the rest isn't good enough for me to trade down for, and drop down the price of a cheap car in the process. Just too much for too few advantages over the modded old hardware... If any.

OK, the new one would be way more shiny than the old one!

But I'm not one to make purchases on fit & finish or looks. Those are superficial only and should not be the deciding factor of a purchase IMO.

I thought I was blindly biased by having a sled I really like a lot... Until I had a few rides on some newer hardware. Found out my bias isn't blind after all!
