Hello All

Great Forum you have here and im glad to be a member

(first post and i have a poll )

I have been out of the snowmobile scene for a few years now and im getting the itch back now, i had a 1994 Polaris 800 Storm from 1995-1999 but sold it due to lack of use.

Anyway i have been shopping around and i have come to the conclusion that the 2004 ZR900 SP is what i want!!!

now the 2 differing SP versions carbed and EFI......what would you pro's reccomend??

never had a EFI sled before and was wondering if it limits the modifications (IE Pipes, Porting etc etc) you can do to them?

now im not totally ignorant and have found the search function but just wanted a better educated opinion on what i should focus my shopping on.

thanks

Having a carbed sled makes it easyer to do mods such as piping and many other others such as a big bore kit. When i was looking into getting a zr 800 i was looking at an efi and i just felt it would limit the things i could do to the sled but this is just my opinion.

with a boondocker box the sky is the limit and you dont get gas on you making adjustments.rode a 990efi(04 900)last year pretty impressed.i have an 04sp carbed with pipes porting the works. my engine guy built the 990 and i would say the efi is nice once you learn the boondocker box. i also have an 04 700 fcat with a big bore 800 and other goodies with the box for adjusting.

GO with the EFI,Its the only way to go
When did you last see a carborated car (70S-80S) ???
EFI makes better,cleaner and more horsepower than any carb, even does better on REGULAR fuel (carbs run better on premium),this season that reason alone will pay for it self....ALSO the days of carb overhauls in the motel sink are GONE!!!

Just my opinion!!!

I had both EFI and a Carb sled...If your just gonna trail ride it get the EFI..The EFI can be modded just as easy as a Carb sled with the aid of a Boondockers box...Not really sure if anyone really makes a program for the boondockers box for the 900 or not...

My carb 900 works every bit as good as an EFI sled... Carb sled is cheaper to modify by just changing jets instead of the initial price of a boondockers box....I really believe you need to be dyno tuned with a boondockers box to achieve the full benefit from it...

I think speedwerx makes a pipe that doesn't need a boondocker box added to it to richen the EFI up ...You can also add reeds as well .... to the stock EFI setup
