Not sure what that means at the 1100 was a Suzuki mill and they split ways a while back. Maybe AC got the rights to the design? That being said the 1100 is built like a tank so I bet you could lighten it up.Heard a dealer rumor of a new lighter weight 1100 4 stroke. Not sure how you make a 4 stroke lighter though. 1 week out.
I was just going off what my brother said (he just bought 2 skidoos), or what the dealer said to him, or what I assumed. I don't see much stock in the local dealers online sites, certainly nothing like what is on the dealer's site that DigCat mentioned.No idea what the pandemic has done for sales, I suspect the Fall was good but I bet this winter things have slowed down as most of the US is having snow issues. I would check with your local dealer and see what they can do for you, unless you want a 2022. Sounds like there could be some new stuff coming next year...
Or an all new designed in class motor that would be shared with the dirt side.Not sure what that means at the 1100 was a Suzuki mill and they split ways a while back. Maybe AC got the rights to the design? That being said the 1100 is built like a tank so I bet you could lighten it up.
Lol! I told boss last Friday that 4-stroke sleds such as his 2017 Sidewinder have set sledding back to 1968 standards (wrench on for 25 hrs just to go riding for 10 minutes)The 7000 wasn't ever a good seller, and after riding both back to back countless times, I'd take a 6000 every time.
The yamaha engine isn't bad, but its not anywhere near as bullet proof as the 1100 either.
The more I work on them the less impressed I am with the design/build, and its more difficult and more expensive to work on than a 6000.
The cam chain/tensioner setup is an abortion, you have to be careful to not turn the clutch "backwards", or the cams can jump time.
The engine basically has to come out of the chassis for a valve adjustment, or timing problems, because the garbage tensioner is located terrible spot. etc.....
im curious as hell myself as i dont want a turbo either, love this ‘20 srviper gt ive run two seasons and hope to see that yamaha engine return (7000 series) for 2022 preorder.Has anyone heard anything about AC's line up for 2022? Think I'll be in the market for new sleds next year and I want a 4 stroke... but not necessarily spend $18,000 on the Thundercat. I don't need speed (I'm old), but I like how they drive.
