Sled: 2002 ZR800 CC, 2001 ZR800, 2005 Firecat
I am looking at buying a used 2003 z440 f/c sno pro, has 3400 miles on it and seems to be in excellent condition, test drove it and it seems to have alot of juice for a 440 f/c engine, checked for specs on this engine and I can not find anything, checked the parts list and this is a completely different engine than the z440(50hp) would this machine make a good trail sled, may be hard on fuel possible that this would be a high maintenance machine? Any information about this sled would be greatly appreciated

If I came across a nice one for a good price, I wouldn't have any concerns of using one of these as a trail sled.

the condition of this sled is perfect - for having 3400 miles on it looks like it has never been ridden, one of my main concerns is the fact it does not have a oil monitor and a small oil tank as well as a smaller fuel tank , wished I could find so more information about one Thanks for your input

Bill.. MY 2000 Z440 has never failed me ... I do know the sno-pro was set-up to take more abuse on bump's...

Is yours a Sno Pro? how many miles can you get out of a tank of fuel?, and how much does it hold, also how much does the oil tank hold - sure wished they had a low oil sensor installed Thanks Bill

The gas tank is 10.3 gals I think. Don't know exact capacity of oil tank but I'd assume you could fit one from a Z 440 or some other sled if you had to. Would think you could get 100 miles (maybe, probably more) from a full tank of gas. Just check and add oil as needed. On most rides I'd bet if you carried one quart along you'd be fine. That same oil tank has been in use on Sno Pro's since 98 and plenty of guys are trail riding on that tank!!

The motor is, as you noted, not the same as Z 440. I think the Z Sno Pro's were pushing 62 hp in 03. They were bumped up to 56 hp starting with 99 Z Sno Pro and got another bump in hp in 01 I think.
