I read more than one post in our "other group" of the Zirt 6 being
able to beat up on Ultra's. I thought this was odd, since it's
considered a 700cc class sled vs. the Zirt's 600cc. I went riding
yesterday with a couple of guys with '96 Ultras, one was stock the
other had many mods including SLP pipes, (yea I know, they've been
recalled) a custom airbox, and many other mods that he wouldn't talk
about. I raced the modified one, which was faster than the stock one,
and the rider weighed the same as me. I holeshotted him by about 2
lengths and he said that distance never changed after that. I have to
take his word for it because I wasn't going to look back at those
insane speeds. It was on a hard packed snow-plowed state hiway and
yes, my pretty green hifax's were melting away.
I found the race very interesting, since my Zirt is bone stock with
the factory FAT jetting and those factory installed improper clutch
Guess the rumor I read is true.
