DO THEY WORK WELL?
I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THE EXPERIENCED
Not sure how much money you are planning to spend... but here in BC, brand new from the showroom at Yamaha, you would be looking at almost 20 grand. So for anything close to that price, 15 even, you are waaaayyy better off and would be much much happier with a used turbo with 240+ hp for the same or cheaper pricing. If the sled is built properly, with all the money spent on suspension upgrades, track, venting, etc... you would have twice the sled then a new nytro with a 180 kit on it.
A sled with 1000-3000 miles on it should still be in mint shape mechanically since its a four stroke. I bought a used PL Nytro Stage 3 kit with EVERYTHING else done to it and i will literally not sell this thing for another 7 or 8 years. It had 3000 miles on it when I got it and its my best investment. I am running 15#'s of boost that's good for just shy of 300hp.
Biggest difference I have found between the turbo and supercharged systems is that for playing around on flat land/trees/smaller hills, then the supercharged system is nice for instant high hp. But if climbing bigger hills, or longer pulls... then a turbo is your better choice.
