who's keeping the stock 22/36 gearing that's supposedly only good for 95mph but ideal for corner to corner trail riding? 
@racerdave?

there's a reason the 650 does well in 1000 feet... but it isn't just the engine as some of the HCS morons are claiming  

a stock 600 XC/XCR runs 22/41 gearing and I bet either will top end these things with those gears

Why would you consider taller 1.63 gearing having less top end than lower 1.86 gearing???

Cuz’s 650 stuck a piston. Only 30 miles on it at the time. Locked right up.  I was riding right behind it when it happened. Not a cold seize as we had been riding a good 40 min without a break. Coolant temp was around 112. 20 minute later got engine to rotate and start (wouldn’t rotate right after it happened) and drove it under say 40mph home. Didn’t try over that. Seemed to run fine but a little down on power.

Dealer did compression test yesterday and reported one cyl under 100 psi. They are tearing apart today/tomorrow to see what happened.

I’d post it on HCS but I can’t. Doh.

Hate to see any new sled go down. From what I have seem this winter, there seems to be a trend of sleds like your cousins going down. Make sure they find the root cause, and don,t just throw another piston in it.

Why would anyone care about top ending a 600 or 650?  I'd set it up for how you intend to use it.  And if that's lake running then you bought the wrong sled.

Polaris guys are all about top speed - it seems to me.  I think it's sort've comical that some of their own 600's can top end them.

My 650 came with 22/41, beats 800's and even some 850's to 660 feet. I like it.

Took it to a 600 ft radar run, won every class I entered it in!
