My thoughts exactly!  Seriously, make sure you ride with a buddy and a tow rope
for a few trips.  This sounds like a pretty radical Cat and it might be
finicky.  Does it have the stock clutch?  If so, make sure it is in good shape
and checked frequently.

Sounds like it ought to climb though!

R, Ar, ar!! Freddy Kruger lives again!

Where did you purchase this beast? A friend sold a nearly identical sled
with the mentioned mods last year in Spokane, Wa.

All I can say is, ENJOY!!

1:  Go buy a BRAND new primary clutch for it. The 700zr with the old
comet clutch typically grenaded the primaries fairly rapidly. The new
clutches are lot stronger, last a lot longer, and don't strand you.
2: Spend the 90 bucks and put the roller face plate on the secondary.
Look at around a 51 degree helix. You won't believe how much nicer the
Roller is then the original button clutch.
3: The ZR is like 25 pounds lighter in the nose then the Wildcat was -
you'll like it.
4: Watch out for underhood heat in the deep powder - you will think
your sled is way rich, so will jet down. The next day you are out on
an open hardpack when it is cold you'll eat a piston.  A gutted air
box on that sled does not lose any horsepower, and actually adds
ponies in the steep and deep cause the motor gets cold air.
5: I don't know what pipes you have, but my stock piper sled ran the
absolute best at 8000 rpm. It fell off hard at 8100. Don't be afraid
to throw weight at it - I run the same weights in my 700 as I did in
my 800ZRT.
