2012 700 stomping 16 in a drag race

by 3-4 lengths. Any clutch mods i can do, 16 is topping out at 62, sometimes hitting the rev limiter at 58 (belt issue?) the 2012 will do 64-67 and flies all the way up to that speed. Not impressed with my new one yet

This is most likely a case of one machine working really well....a special pick of the breed. It happens in everything mechanical, especially engines. Sometimes you just get one that works way better than it should. In almost all the cases that I have known of this, the engine was driven hard from day one.

You may put all kinds of mods and money into your '16, and still not match that special '12.

I'll give you a couple examples below to explain what I mean.
I've had a couple V6 Chevy Z24's. My first one was by far the best working one....and I mean by far. And I used cheap oil, cheap plugs, wires, air filters, etc...nothing special. All that and over 300,000 kms.
My second Z24 had performance intake, full exhaust, platinum plugs, 12mm wires, etc...., and only 120,000kms... and it wouldn't hold a candle to my first one. No where near the power.

I also had a 1997 Sportsman 500. Got it as dealer demo. By far the best operating and most powerful Polaris 500 I ever ridden. It would 70 mph and wheel at will. My 660 Grizzly I have now would not come close to it.

2016 700 what? Griz or Kodi?
I see in your other post it is a Griz.

Rider weight is a factor.

X2 on tire size... Because of mileage my Pitbulls and about 25.5" while my Queens Pitbull are still close to 26.5". Funny..a few weeks ago our machines were sitting side by side up on the truck deck at eye level..she ask why her tires were so much bigger than mine.

25" tires on both rigs. No clutch mods that I know of. I think the 2012 has a shim in it

It's a grizzly. Rider weight is about the same. Tires about the same.
