Times 840vs1000x

Alright since my plans fell through today I decided to do a little experiment. It showed me everything I need to know.. Go to youtube you will find a camera on the speedo of a 1000x from 0-73 and times in sec (I double checked it with my stopwatch). The only bad thing about it is he could be cheating.. Going down hill ect... So I re-enacted the little experiment. Trust me I didnt cheat. The only streach of road near my subdivision is slightly up hill the whole strech & I had a strong head wind. Also remember I have no OD all I have is Vjohns clutch kit not his MOD. If I had OD or had the mod I would have done 75-77 mph. I am a little slow on the computer but I am trying to put mine on youtube sidexside vs the Canam 1000. Hope to have that linked up soon.. OK on to the numbers.. 0-50 1000x was 7.5 sec (my 840 0-50 5 sec) 1000x time 0-60 9.5 sec ( 840 0-60 7.4 sec) 1000x 0-72 17.5 sec ( 840 0-72 15.8 ) Ok so I didnt get to race one but I did the next best thing. On the youtube video he hit 73 in 21 sec. and was topped out. My video I hit 72 in 15.8 and was topped out because the strech of road was a slight uphill pull the whole way. I had my bike hit 74 on a relative flat road with a very light decline with a 220 lb passenger. So When the race does happen (and it will) the commander owner will be shocked ( because they all believe that it is the fastest and there is no way a 840cc heavier Teryx can compete with a 1000cc rotax lighter commander) Just imagine in your head going 60 mph hitting your stop watch and letting 2 full sec go by and see how far you have travelled.. That is how far the Teryx 840 will be in front of the 1000x in a race

Here are the videos. It may take a little while for my Teryx vid to come up. Youtube is still processing the video.

Yes but when you watch the video 0-70 mph in 13 sec that very fast! I would say you will lose in a short race.

Man that thing really hits hard on the take off. Watching the video the speedo gains faster from 0 to 50 and the gains slo from 50 to 70. But out of the hole the speedo goes like 5 12 20 28 33 35 39.

Take your own stopwatch and see.. My buddys 840 raced a X Sat night. ( mine runs almost even with his) From 0-50 he was 30ft in front of the X..60-70 the x pulled with in 25 ft.. Then the 840 pulled away until they let off.

I can help you with that.. If you are close to the Kentucky area.. I do install big bore kits & do repairs.. Trust me , it will be "dialed in or tuned " as good or better than anybody out there. We spend alot of time "dialing in" the 840..We make sure clutching, maps or jetting and timing are all working together for peak performance. PM me if interested OR if you want to tackle the job yourself PM me and I will give you help over the phone or through PM absolutly FREE
