    Nope, no S chassis with the 583. Those were only series 2. The fz 583 I nearly bought a couple years before, and when I did pull the trigger, the zx chassis wasn't as good as it got later in its existence.

    If it's a 2000 x 600 sp, it is ves. They made a deluxe model xc 6 ( non sp) that had the big block non ves. Good motor, but the gem was that ves 6. They also made a ltd build edge 6 with the ves, but it was $600 more when me than the gen2 one I got and couldn't justify the cost for a slower machine.
    Did the ves come on all the 2000 , or just he SP version? Do you feel the same about the 500cc class as well?

    As far as doo... What is the difference in the formula 3 and Z? Are the 3's triples? Different chassis?

    Sorry to seem ignorant, but it is hard to find good info on the older iron that I don't have experience with

    No problem. F3 was either a 6 or 700 or 800 triple. Some years were in this own chassis, The ck3 was a trip is only chassis, but earlier formula 3s were in the same chassis as the twins in the 670, and 583 ilk. Formula z were Twins only.

    Ves only on the edge limited edition, the 600 touring, and the xc6sp. The xc 6 deluxe or 45th anniversary black and red edition had the non ves big block. The 500 ves was a fast sled too. That 500 ves gets a little trickier to explain as to what models it was in as it didn't follow the same formula as the 600 used. The 45 th anniversary deluxe 500 had the ves. Same chassis as the 600, but no 500 edge until 01. Few know you could buy a edge 6 in 00. It was offered to me when I snow checked my 00, in March of 99. Idk if it even had any literature on it, except that was the race chassis already.
