great topic.

question about a 97 zr440 that I just bought.

The airbox wasn't bolted onto anything when I got it. When I look online it looks like there should be some posts that come out of the frame that the airbox slides onto and pins used to hold the airbox down. Mine doesn't have any posts, just a hole in the frame. What is going on here? Why the difference? How am I suppose to mount the airbox?

Pull your secondary clutch and look toward the back of the airbox where it sits inside the frame, there is a screw that should hold the box.

So only 1 bolt to hold the airbox in place? Why does the parts diagram show those pins?

Here is a picture of mine, I'm not sure if the circled holes are threaded. But it doesn't look like the parts diagram

Forget about those, none of the 97's had those pins. It's just the one screw that holds it in there and it's all thats needed.

My 440 has the pins They came with really small hitch pins to hold the airbox on. The real early builds had the pins the sled built in july the later built sleds in september didnt have them. Same with the exghaust shims my sled came with 4 exghaust shims to on the sled and 2 in the tool box lid. They said it was for more low end or high end depending on the how many shims. But yeah the early zr's had little differences then the later run sleds.

After I took my sled in for the first time the motor blew up cause of there up dates they cut the loops on my air box with side cutters NICE huh. So the pins dont hold the box up on top anymore. Just the screw in the side behind the secondary clutch. To top that they droped a trailer on my seat and ripped the seat cover they put an new seat cover on the letters where not straight so back it went to get ANOTHER COVER on it this time they stapled the seat cover to the tank. YES THE TANK They ran staples down the middle of the seat and tank plastic. The Dealer Fed my sled up BIG TIME I had 1200 miles on the sled by the 1st of December after that it was took in for the up dates I think i got about 20 miles on it. It was at the dealership the rest of time fixxing there freak ups!!

Getting that time of year again to fire up the sleds. I purchased a 96zr440 last spring and didnt get much chance to ride it other than one warm spring day. It did have a bad low end bog though.

Anyone using the updated settings out of the Arctic cat performance manual

300 Mains
30 Pilots
6DH41 needles
and 3.5 Cutaway Slides

The 3.5 slides is what I question, stock was 2.0, this seems like a big jump, anyone else think this is too lean or running it with good results.

After taking apart the carbs, I found 2.5's in them, could of this been a typo from cat?

Are these sleds very sensitive to airscrew adjustments?

1 word. nology. the nology wires will completly get rid of that bog, even with stock carb setting they are amazing on these sled. others will attest to this too. i ran 270s in my carbs all year from -25 all the way into the 40s and never had a bog or any problems.
