Still Crazy For You

CMX beefs it up

Crazy Mtn. Motorsports may be a small Montana sled maker, but most every western rider has heard of its product-the Crazy Mountain Xtreme.

Many may even have seen one up close-if, of course, it was sitting still. Because when this sled is in action, it's way high up on the mountain or flying by you like you were sitting still.

All that action is thanks to the Crazy Mountain Xtreme's PSI 1085cc twin with its heart thumping 225 hp. Combine that kind of power with the sled's 425-pound dry weight and you have one wicked snowmachine.

The 1085cc a little too much for you? Crazy Mountain also offers its sleds with a CMX 800 (Polaris EVS with electronic reverse) or Polaris 600 twin, which is about 12.5 lbs. lighter than the 800.

You've got the power, now how about getting it to the snow? The CMXDS belt drive system has been a standard feature on the Crazy Mountain Xtreme since the 1999/2000 season. Unique to the CMXDS is a four-piston caliper brake that controls braking at the track shaft. Along with a gun-drilled chromoly jackshaft, there leaves little doubt the power isn't getting to the snow. The CMXDS is also available as an aftermarket item and can be fitted in any OEM sled.

New for this season is a tip up tunnel design which allows more clearance while eliminating the need for tunnel extensions. CMX is also using a two-inch higher Boss seat, which incorporates the tip up tunnel design and includes standard features like a shovel pouch and a separate tool storage compartment.

Sitting under the tunnel is a Camoplast 151- or 159-inch track and modified M-10 rear suspension. CMX is using lightweight chromoly torque arms and big wheels (billet aluminum) to help keep the sled as light as possible.

Also new for this season is a carbon fiber hood, which is stronger and more flexible and has new graphics. Available hood colors are red, yellow, blue metallic, black, black metallic and silver metallic.

The Team Performance secondary clutch is standard on all 800s with Arctic Cat's roller secondary standard on the 1085.

It's enough high performance stuff to make your head swim-but it'll all clear up once you gain some altitude and soak up all the Crazy Mountain Xtreme has to offer.
