    I have been looking at this sled for a while, I really wanted a 2 cylinder but this thing looks sweet, I just don't know much about this model.

    Trust me, you don't want an '06 700 CFI Fusion (didn't make an 06 700 Dragon, it was an 06 600 and an 07 700)...600 was good though. I had one that I big bored to 660cc that would take out 800s of that era. That 700 (755cc) /900 (866cc) motor was one of the worst I've ever seen from Polaris.

    That 700 triple/triple will waste a 700 twin from the same year. It has long legs. I used to ride one exactly like that. Just don't expect it to be very comfortable on beat up trails...that Xtra10 suspension isn't the most plush. Clean/rebuild the carbs and clutches and you will have a hard pulling machine for very little money.

    Thanks for the clarification on that. wasnt sure exact years on the dragon.. i heard the 900 are junk. always needing fixing.

    The 600 isnt all that fast from videos ive seen. But thats plenty for me.. It lifts the skis a lil. I bet bored out like that, it moved pretty good then.

    Thester? Can you test the ski first? Take it for a spin and see if you like it..

    The 600HO in the Fusion/IQ chassis moves pretty well, but you have to remember, that it is only a 600. Every 600 I've owned has been big bored, to fit a 700cc 81mm piston. Recut and rechamber the head for 145psi and a tight squish. Makes a huge difference. It is the best small block motor setup I've ever had. With a single pipe, they can make 140 hp.

    Sweet. Thats a lot of HP then.. Maybe someday if I can swing it, I'll get one. I see they are around 3500.00 -4500 right now.. What about the ski Thester is looking at?

    IIRC, the 700 XCR Fuji triple was around 140ish hp. The 800 was about 150-155. Those exhaust valve, Fuji triples run better than the horsepower numbers would indicate.
