Hi guys kinda new to snowmobile performance . Herein the cornfields of central illinois if a guy had a john deere trail fire or a yamaha phazer he was IN lol . Ive got this 92 jag special . It has had work done to the carbs and clutches . It got a dead hole , burned piston and stuck rings . I am getting ready to replace and then wondered if there are big bore kits for 440 fan motors . I am really wanting a little sleeper sled. ANY advice is greatly appreciated.

You could shop ebay for a complete 550 engine package.Ive seen them go for less than 1000 bucks,and by the time you sink money into yours you could spend a lil extra for a 550,and then part out or sell your engine and get some money back.

Just rebuild your 440 and put 340 stickers on it. Either way it's still slow as hell and won't be a sleeper of any sort.

Well douche bag , i mean fireball . Yeah thats right what it says under your avatar , only your the asshole . You have probably never been on one of the special sleds so you have no idea. This sled was bought brand new and after the clutches were done was a very competitive oval racer. Im just wanting to pull a little more outof it. These were a fast little sled in the day and on the trails are still formidable from what i have heard . If you can even find one . SO until you know exactly what you are talking about just stuff it up your ass boy.

Nah , just get tired of **** thinkin they are hot shit and trying to be cool by giving a guy just asking questions shit.

But thats to be expected , i just saw you ride a skidoo , you are probably frustrated all the time . Nice lookin sled tho , my wife says it would be a great sled for her little sister.

:lol: says the guy who thinks that 440 fans are fast sleds.

...and I wasn't personally giving you shit, just commented that 440 fans are slow sleds - which they are. Then you called me a douche bag and an asshole.

Z = Fanner, ZR = Liquid.[/b]
ZL = liquid too. And if it helps, you'll probably need to modify or make a whole new engine mount plate for the 570 to make room for the airbox. Also grab the secondary clutch off the donar sled if you can.

2 years ago I put a 440 supersport motor in a Polaris Ultra chassis. It was a sleeper alright, asleep at the line. It topped out at about 55 mph but was good for a few laughs and a good pounding.

Hey Fireball . i appologise . I got out of line and flew off the handle like the douchebag , sorry about that. and the only reason i dissed your sled is because actually kinda jealous ha ha . Actually from what i have seen on here when someone puts down someone elses sled it usually looks like they are jealous.

This is the story on my sled . It was bought out of the back of the arctic cat dealership while it was still crated. I was told by the original owner that there were only 154 of them produced in 92. He bought it for oval racing . They worked the carbs over really good and went through the suspension . Did a black magic kit in both clutches and worked them over. He told me the sled was radared at 95 mph . He got rid of it because the z440's were starting to show up more and more and with smaller guys than what he was and he could not compete with them . Im just saying it seems like a hard running 440 . I tried buying a zrt and couldnt find one that i could afford so i am trying to pull everything i possibly can out of this one . My brother rides a bone stock 570 exciter and i am wanting to beat him with a 440 fan sled.

Thank you for the advice up above and again , I appologize for being a dick .
