check to see if it was raced or not... look for extra straps on the cowl, and look for where a number plate would be,,, those are both signs of it being raced.. it will prolly top out about 95 mph, but will have great low end pull for the trails... the suspension on my 02 mxzx 440 is the same as used on revs, the gas has to be mixed unless you get a oil injection kit for it... they do like to use gas very much, and do require a bit more maintenence than other sleds do...

thats about ill i got for ya

its definately a quick snowmobile! maybe not in top speed but in 0-60... i heard you gotta do a little more maintence to them, especially if it was raced.

about 100, that particular sled might be less cuz its a few years old.

keep in mind that it is a race engine/leaded gas/hi comp/advanced timing/race pistons.

now they push a screamind 110.

okay thanks

.. I have bet 50$ with a friend who has a 2000 mxzx440lc that I'll beat him on a quarter mile.... I have some challenge lol !!

I'm better to install pipes, remove starter, remove facultative gears in the gearbox and tweak the carbs before !!

...what does a stock 440x beats on quarter miles ??
