Found a guy on craigslist that has a 2002 Edge RMK 700. Says he has it bored to a 750 with twin stinger pipes. Any problems with 750 kits? I know getting into an 800 is dangerous territory but i don't know if a 750 would be a problem. I'm no Engineer but i know the harmonic frequencies on the 800's would through things off and blow the 8's up.
You think an aftermarket 750 is safer than a stock 800? Only problem with the 800's is the crank tolerencing at the factory, $100ish big boy bearing kit and it's fixed. You chunk a stock cylinder and you find a used one, you chunk a 750 cylinder and you're looking at getting one custom bored, port mached and re-nic'd.
Granted I ran a PSI 800(68mm stroke 700 based) but if I ever blew a cylinder I would have been SOL.
I never said that a 750 would be safer than the 800. I just asked if a 750 would have problems like the 800. But, as you said, the 800 cranks were junk out of the factory. I know the 700 cranks are solid. So would you predict any problems with this sled. I emailed the guy to see why he bored it out and all that. Don't want to get into this if he's smoked the thing and not repaired it right. save me the headache of resale. I think if this is in good shape and doesn't have much of any foreseeable problems, it would be a great sled for 1500 bucks.
Well. I haven't gotten an email from the guy, so if i don't get one by the end of the week, I'm not even going to bother with the guy. there are plenty of other sleds out there i could get. My dad wants a good clean old lady sled, but i'd like something with atleast a 141' track. I don't want to spend the time and money to put one on myself.
