Arctic Cat Vin Numbers

I have a 91 Arctic Cat with a 440 in it there is no decals on it so I was wondering if any one could tell me how to tell what model the sled is from the vin number? Is there some place cat has their vin numbers listed?

VIN numbers are on the throttle side of the sled on the tunnel where your foot goes.

If you can post a pic I'm sure we can tell you what it is. Do you know if it's fan cooled or liquid cooled?

Yea that is it. Mine has some custom decals, 2-up seat with back rest, e-start and mirrors. Would any of that make it a mountain cat?

That would depend on the track length. All the rest could just be add ons.

So is it a long or short track on the mountain cat?

Mountain sleds generally have a deeper lug track and a longer track than the standards. Standards are usually 121" and mountain sleds are usually 136" or more. Also the tunnel is longer to accommodate the longer track on a mountain sled.
