i am guessing it is lower then a twin. :dunno: but my 97'440 is by mileage ready for a rebuild at 145psi per cylinder i think its suppose to be 155-160 new. but a triple could be way dif. sorry but hope this might help :div20:

I had one of those 97 440's, and it was a production/snopro that year. It came setup for 87 octane fuel, with a chart for a 93 octane setup. That setup was mainly for jetting. 145psi is a trailable number, but when you start getting into the 150-160+ range, she's gonna make some heat in any twostroke.

well i have 6000 miles on it since last rebuild. so i donno how it would be still like brand new. :dunno: i never will run 87 in mine again. i tried it once and i could tell the dif in power. i am not tryin to start anything this is just what i was told. :div20: oyeah there was 2 dif zr440s that year. i donno if that was what you were saying with production/snopro. but there was a consumer model and a race model. the real sno pro came out in 98'. i have the race model with the clear tank and the stock clutching and gears were a little dif. :beerchug:

Difference in power? How? Without changing anything but fuel octane? 93 over the 87 is safer, but doesn't make more power. Higher octane=cleaner=cooler=less detonation=safer, but not more power.

if it is burning cleaner-cool-and all that other stuff it is making more power. with a cooler running motor it will produce more power. and i looked at my air box it come set up for 91 and altitude. and shows how you can jet it for 87. if it is running cooler the cylinders should not expand so much and will keep motor at more of a steady temp. if octane does not make more power why do they run 110 octane? beside they need to for compretion. higher octane atemizes better to. :beerchug:
