97 was not a sno pro like Cnote and everyone else says is correct. 98 was the first year of the sno pro. Sno pro was a name given to the ice racing sleds of the 70's there was a race series called SNO-PRO. What sno pro was the factory race team sleds they called them sno pro. In 98 cat came out with the zr 440 with power valves on it. Was there factory race sled for boosting sales and getting everyone interested in racing they added the sticker sno pro. That name would be on the zr factory race sleds that only you could get if you raced. You had to apply for the sled through the race program. Alot of them ended up in peoples hands cause people applied for them or the next year racers wanted a new sled so they sold them. Long story short 97 zr 440 is a sno but isn't. Its a factory race sled YES!! SNO PRO NO!!. Hope that clears everything up a little. Either way your son has a great sled that has alot of snowmobile racing history too it. 97 zr 440 won more races in the 97 season then any other race sled ever built PERIOD. Probly the greatest race sled ever built. Any zr 440 sled is a race sled. 93-01 was the zr model Forget what year they changed it but the 440 was dropped all together for the back bone of factory racing. They then changed the rules to 600 class 1 reason is that Yamaha did not make a 440 since the early 80's SRX. They wanted everyone to change to the 600 class in the hayday of sno cross racing but the other 3 had all there money stuck into the 440 engine to be the test sled for the track.

The 97 440 zr had a aluminum bulk head the 97 580 zr had the steal bulk head. Someone stated 580 had a steal bulk head. 97 580 only had the ETT tunnel and TSL skid other wise it was the same as the 580's before. Well few things different batteryless EFI and the pile of **** secondary clutch that looked like a polaris clutch that the 97 580 is the only sled to EVER have. 97 440 had more travel in the front aluminum bulk head piggy back clicker shocks all the way around whole different a arms and spindles on the sled. It was what all the zr models after it came out would use. Only thing the 580 and 440 had in common was the green hood the green seat with the pads on the side. Otherwise someone tells you its the same sled they have no idea what there talking about.

No it wasn't. 96 ZR 440 had the first roller secondary and used steel rollers and special aluminum helix with steel roller surfaces (= goofy and pretty much no options). They will chew up a standard aluminum helix in a hurry.....remember

I finally got around to taking a couple of pics. After reading your replies, I did check it out as little more and it does have an aluminum tunnel. Going by some of your replies, is this a sled that I'm going to want to hang on to? Is it going to be worth keeping, or is it just another sled?
