Early optimism We were optimistic after many late season test rides on the pre-production Dragons. There is no charge, completely free. We didn't have independent dyno data from a production sled for last month's issue, but we've got it now! Any help is greatly appreciated. PolarisStarPower is always open to donations. Dealer put some new pistons in it so its got all the updates.
The shock package is excellent for the trail, but they need to be revalved if your the kind of person who hits large jumps. We would also much rather have a machine that protects itself and has the detonation sensor retard on the engine sooner rather than have a burn down. Just picked up my own dragon 800 sp yesterday, 0-100 in the blink of an eye, and after about a mile of holding. Another dyno-shop, DynoTech had success in reducing fuel flow from 110 lb. Now is the time of lightweight big 2-stroke 800 twins. It also is apparent that this sled responds well to bolt-on mods and 93 octane gas. Interestingly, the old Polaris 700 Dragon netted 135.
We put the Polaris 800 Dragon on the dyno at Dynoport for several runs and also received data from the good folks at DynoTech Research. This problem is widely rep. Can anyone help with any ideas of what can be going on? I owned one before and it did the same thing so the next year I swapped it. After that the sled lacks power. The sled is a rocket out of the hole! To view more specifications, visit our. Tell your friends, register today and help us build the best Polaris Snowmobiles site on the internet.
It fixed the hesitation on many of my friends sleds, and polaris covers the reflash. We took a look at this segment in depth in our 800cc short-track comparison story last issue and further scrutinize it with our 800 crossover comparison this month. You better hang on from 0-85mph. We also heard that the rings on this engine are particularly hard for longevity and heat protection. This year, with ever-growing concerns about deteriorating fuel quality, the rich fuel mapping may have been done to provide additional protection to the engine.
Its a very nice looking and sharp sled but the thing just don't run hard. It's important to remember that not every sled that comes off the line makes exactly the same horsepower and it's nearly impossible to re-create the exact same dyno pull every time. Yet, in our dyno tests we did not exactly see the horsepower numbers we thought we would, but did learn a lot about the engine. Otherwise a great handling sled! So with a Y-pipe and more, this sled will most likely be a 160+ hp machine. While this is lower than the Polaris-stated 154 horses, it's still darn good for an 800cc engine.

. Stock you will max out at around 97-100mph. I would like to see it run good and stay with the guys for a few rides. Having looked at these stats again, it seems as though everyone is chasing Ski-Doo's 800R motor as far as pure stock power production. We use data about you for a number of purposes explained in the links below. Several carbureted 600s have needed to change main jet sizes as well. Yamaha competes in this power region too with its 149-hp Genesis 4-stroke engine.
I also owed a 2007 Polaris 700 dragon in which I expierenced the same problem. Feel free to contact us about Ads or Banners. . . . .
