Best solution would be to keep your self out of the throttle. If you comfertable with it, you can jet the carbs down and maybe pick up a little bit better MPG, but you need to be careful doing this as you can burn down an engine. Best your gonna get with that sled is 10 to 11 at the most.
False, Motors are the same. Only Difference between ZR and ZLs is clutching and shocks. Some years also had a little different gearing. But Zl Clutching would not spin the zr Higher

Your ZR engine is case reed induction and 437cc, the ZL engines are piston port and 436cc, I think it's the "old" ZR engine from '94 & '95.....BTW, pay that guy back for the useless parts you sold him in your other post!

i think it is actually the old prowler engine from the early 90s.

In 98 they had 3 440 liquid engines

Zl 440 piston port engine that made about 68HP

ZR 440 consumer version case reed, low 90s HP (same as the 1997)

Zr440 sno-pro limited build racer with the case reed, power valved 440, that was in the higher 90s for HP

Never really heard of anyone being concerned about mileage on a sled. Don't mean to sound rude but if you can't afford the fuel then you can't afford the sled.

I see. Can you remove any weight from the sled? Or the rider?
