    ron yep. the 1992 vmax 4 was gonna be sliced bread too. anyways thats yamaha for ya. when yamaha is done with a sled, 97 vmax 4. 02 srx. 05 rx-1 . they forget these sleds were ever built. truth of the matter is they want ya to trade up every year. if you have a 2002 srx in 2014, they look at ya like your crazy. my 2000 srx with power inc pipes has gone 10.47 @ 122 with frank driving. my amsnow shootout 800 will die with me. 3:16 (yammie tony)

    I have quite a bit of experience vs. the vmax 4 and other large bore triples. I have a very well setup 2000 srx that I run both speed runs and drag races with. My usual group i run with has the following. (94 t-cat, 992 big bore, psi mod blasters, good clutching) (92 vmax 4, 865 big bore, hauck howlers, decent clutching) (99 Polaris ultra spx, 800 hot to go motor, htg triples, porting etc.) (95 zrt 800, hooper 1107, d&d mod pipes, etc.) In a 660' drag race my srx will beat all of them everytime..... i do not trail ride this srx. it is setup for drag race. I can also out mph them at the radar runs except for the 1107. My srx runs 98-99 on ice in 660'. the 1107 gets my by a mph or 2. my point here is an SRX that is setup properly is very hard to beat. I have the trophy room to back this up if anyone is in doubt.....

    Sounds like you have your SRX dialed in nice. How do you think it would do if the competition you are up against was dialed in as well as your SRX??

    Proper setup and tune is always a favorite to win.

    I watched Olaf Aaen dyno a 92 Vmax-4 sleeved down 700 improver at 180 hp+. The next one up was an 800 Vmax-4 in a lay down mod. It was over 230 hp.

    Both sleds were still in the early stages of tune and the sleds weren't done. It was agreed (owners and Olaf) that there was more to be had in both sleds. Changes were talked about along with more testing.

    Don't know where those sleds ended up in the HP department but if anyone runs up against a Vmax-4 that is properly built and tuned it will be a player in any class (stock/improved/mod).

    All things equal (builder/tuner/class) I'll put my $ on the Vmax-4.

    I reserve the right to change my mind if someone can prove to me it needs replacing.

    Easy now, carefull what you say about a 600 twin ! Let's not forget that a 600 XTC was THE lightest sled made back then at 467 dry, lighter that the 600 SX. I used to work at a Yamaha dealership back in the late 90's - early 2000's, and we used to race my sled against stock SRX 700's, both studded, and I would pull on them to about 75 to 80 mph. Weight matters !

    How could the xtc be lighter than the sx? they are pretty much the same sled except the xtc has the long travel suspension, long travel suspension would add more weight to the sled.

    Most of it was the shocks if I remember correctly, the weight numbers were based on the SX having Ohlins, was only a few pounds different. But back in the summer of 1996 when I ordered mine new, that was the deciding factor for me, plus,
    Getting the long travel suspension, black color, no brainer for me ! ��

    i totally disagree with the weight claim of a 600 sx and the 600 xtc. way off. and if my srx ever lost to a 600 xtc up to 80 mph i throw a match to it. thats almost equivalent to a 500 f.t. grass drag. no way. 3:16x (yammie tony)

    There is no way a short travel ohlins shock weighs more than a long travel KYB shock, the long travel shock is bigger, how could it be lighter?
