I have a chance to get a 1999 ZRT 800 well actually trade my 1995 vmax 4 800 for it. The person has told me it has a D&D 1000 bigbore kit installed with pipes and individual filters, the acual milage is unknown, yet the hood and tunnel say 1000 on it and the cylinder 800......excuse my ?? as I know nothing about cats! what should I look for on these? I know the balacer shaft bering can be a problem on the bigbore triples correct? he is asking $3000 or trade. thinks its work picking up! here are the pictures.

Sled: '98 ZRT 800, '78 Pantera F/A
The VMax4's are really cool, but if you actually ride the thing on the trails and intend to put some mileage on it, I'd go with the '99 Cat without a second thought. Even stock, it has twice the suspension and more motor. Plus it still has a huge aftermarket, especially compared to the Yamaha.

Just make sure it has reverse on it!

You have the 800 heads, but bigger jugs and pistons if the guy is telling the truth. Get that cat, you will love it. Nothing but shear power. Not much of a jumper due to the weight, but man do the haul a$$.

Man, that looks like one fast sled!

Going from that V-Max Yamaha will be a welcome change in handling, but it will still not be much of a trail sled. The pipes and individual silencers point to rather extensive mods for top end horsepower which will make the power band peaky. On the trail it will be all or nothing for power (read: ski lift!) and louder than snot! On the lake it will be hard to beat in a drag race if that is your objective. Either way it will be a lot of fun and a handful to ride.
