Hello to All,
I am new to the ARCTIC CAT BRAND OF SLEDS.
This week I bought three used sleds
2000 ZL 700
1998 ZL 500
1998 ZR 600
I have a couple of questions on them.
First I can not find any info on the ZL 700???
What does it make for horse power?
Are there any reliability issues?
It has 2700 miles on it now.
The track does not look to be the stock one on it.
Does anyone have any pictures or old arcticals on this sled or links to info on it?Also top speed clutching ideas etc.....

The 1998 ZL 500 how many HP top speed etc.

On the 1998 ZR 600
It has been clutched but I do not know by who?
It has an engaugement of about 5000 rpm and it has a
D&D single pipe and can on it.
Delta V-Force reeds
D&D Power breather air box lid
Black primary spring
dont know what wieghts are they marked some where?
driven clutch has a red spring and purple helix with dd #6 on it stamped on
Does anyone know what this thing should make for HP and what speed it should run
top RPM
Top speed
hole shot
rpm max

1/4 mile???
Thanks for any help you can provide

ATV: 650i Brute Force
Well for the 98 Zl500, i believe it has 95 HP stock. You should be able to bury the needle on hardpack, so 105-110 MPH if you believe the speedo reading. I ride about 1400 ft elevation and have 340 main jets in. This made quite a bit of difference from the 360's it came with. If your looking at clutching, the black magic heartthrob clutch kit works pretty damn good also. I also put 96 studs down the middle and noticed no speed loss from the extra weight, but a great improvement on hardpack riding. I am putting in another 24 this week.

For a 500, this sled will go like a raped ape. Should take almost all non-current 600's in a drag, along with newer F5 sno-pros and such.
And how did you end up buying three sleds in one week, haha. And all the same chassis.

Hope that helped,
Allen

For the 2000 ZL 700, just look at all the info on this site about a ZR700. You have a 99 style hood with a 2000 700 engine. The only difference between the 99 and 00 engine was a different cdi unit and different needles in the carbs.
A ZL is the same as a ZR except for the shocks, ZR's used Fox or ACT shocks and ZL used Ryde FX. The rear skid frame is slightly different also. In 2000 the ski stance was widened from 41 to 43 inches.
Quite a bit of info on this site about re-jetting and clutching a ZR 700, do a "search"
Oh, and to Arctic Chat

Here is a helpful site looking at what stock was in a given year for a given sled, along with some other helpful info. The 2000 ZL is on pages 26 and 27 of this, and the 98 600 is on pages 31 and 32.

Its a pretty cool sight I found just recently that will give you all the stock information on clutch calibration, peak rpms, helix, gear/chain, engagement. Real good stuff.

I tried the link and it took me to a carb jetting page?
I think this link works better it takes you to their home page for parts.

Yes, the link goes to the general booklet. If you look on the upper left, you can pick NEXT, PREVIOUS pages to cycle through it. Its kind of tedious to get to the right page, but the information in those pages is excellent. For example, pg 5 has all spring tensions for primary and secondary clutch springs, and then a lot of the later pages are sled specifications...it has specs for current sleds all the way back to 1991.
