ZLs are better for trail, ZRs are better for performance

I owned two 580's. One being a 94 EFI EXT and the other a 95 EXT carb. They were both excellent sleds which provided miles of trouble free riding but I will agree, they were both pretty good at empting the tank. My dealer told me that the ZR 580's had a diffrent exhaust port configuration than the EXT's or something like that. Anyway, they never gave me any problems. Dan
