1998 mxz 440 fan, am wondering....

Am going to see one this weekend. Guy isn't asking much for it. Wanted to know if there was anything in particular to check/look for, and also if anyone has one of these or knows anything about them, if you could pass the information along to me it would be greatly appreciate. Thanks!

just bought one last year for the girl friend ... she road it all last year and loved it, nice and light lots of pep for a small 440, i heard that the 440 fans are bullet proof not like its liquid cooled brother.. no complaints here.. they are very good on gas and oil.. ours has 2400 kms on it and spotless paid 2400 bucks for it.

thank you for the quick reply iceman, thats what I was hoping to hear. Any idea what size track is on your wifes machine? I think it takes a 121 but am wondering what size lugs or studs I can get away with. The machine is being sold dirt cheap because the track on it was shot so the owner took it off. Thanks again!

hmm.. not sure of the exact size.. its a factory bombardier track probably a 1 " lug? it has 96 studs in it.. there probably also i inch?..if you do buy it and put a track with studs in it make sure the suspension is adjusted to your weight and make sure you have some type of tunnel protectors on it incase you bottom it out and start to scrape the bottom of the tunnel.... ours was adjusted to my girlfriends weight and i jumped on it and a few hard bumps later there was some contact with the tunnel.

I just looked at your profile, not surprised her suspension bottomed out lol you're a big dude. Thanks again for your help, if you happen to remember the size of the track if you could let me know it'd be appreciated, thanks again. What kind of plugs does she run in hers?
