This 599cc 2-stroke DSI is the unmodified version of the engine that’s been launching Team Arctic down the racetrack since 2012. This quick-revving, 125-class horsepower C-TEC2™ power mill is the product of a world-class engine assembly plant — ours. Whether you’re riding a ZR® an M or a Crossover, the 6000 is one of the most satisfying engines found in a snowmobile.
The Arctic Drive System features CVT drive and driven clutches for a combination of smooth shifting, optimal performance, maximum durability; great serviceability; and reduced weight. The new drive clutch features a roller bearing on the shaft that enables an auto-adjusting belt tension design and delivers consistent performance without manual adjustments. It also features a 12.5 percent lower effective starting ratio (while maintaining the top ratio) for smoother engagement and reduced belt wear at drive-away speed, with more evenly distributed force for lower belt pressure. It’s a design that’s unique to Arctic Cat.
All the information. All at your fingertips. There’s an odometer, trip meter, speedometer, engine hour, clock, fuel level indicator, reverse and warning lights, keeping you in tune with your machine.
The Ripsaw™ track features aggressive angled-lug profiles for outstanding forward and lateral traction on groomed trails. Its “chopped” lug design delivers excellent handling, acceleration and braking on hard-packed surfaces. A narrow lug base reduces rolling resistance for optimum top speed. And rigid lug design offers excellent long-term durability. Most ZR® 129-in. models utilize the Ripsaw track.
The Ripsaw II track combines the best features of Ripsaw, Cobra™ and Predator for excellent performance in a wide variety of trail conditions. It offers less side-bite through the corners than the original Ripsaw and comes with a 1.25-in. lug height for optimal top speed. It’s standard on all ZR 137-in. models.
This trail ski’s 6″ width delivers excellent handling on hardpack snow and good flotation in loose snow. A stiff, deep keel provides positive cornering in all conditions.
The perfect mix of protection and comfort, keeping any spray from slowing you down when the going gets really fast.
