Sled: 1998 Zr 600 EFI
1998 zr 600 efi

I have just recently got a 98 ZR 600. Starts first pull and runs great. Just am wondering if there is anything to look for mechanically or just stuff to check before i get stranded out on the trail. Almost new track with predrilled holes for studs. It has a comet clutches, both the clutches have yellow springs in them. ( can someone inform me on what the diffrence in spring color means?) Has a PSI racing pipe and can that has no holes and fits without almost no leakage. Any info on this sled would be great. Thanks.

For the front end, check the spindles and shocks to make sure everything is light and greased.

For the engine bay, check for any leaks, worn or split wires, check the carb boots to make sure there are no cracks in them.

For the rear skid, check over all the bogey wheels to make sure they aren't cracked or chunked and turn freely. Make sure that the rear springs are seated properly and haven't worn through the plastic keepers. Then make sure that the entire rear skid is greased at all the points. Check track tension and alignment as well.

That should give you quite a bit to look at and hopefully if there are any other issues, you will spot them when you are going over each part of the sled.

Does that 98 efi have a chip? With aftermarket pipes it should.

yes it has a chip in it. Runs good. I have the skid out and all the shocks are getting rebuilt as I write this. I have two pullers for the clutches to grease the shafts and but new bearing in them. The intake boots have cracks in them. arctic cat dealer said about 26 bucks a piece for aftermarket ones. Otherwise everything is good. a-arms are in good shape. One question is how much tension should be on the track and how do i set the length with the bolts? ( any like standard measurment?)

For your intake boots, MfgSupply has them for $22 each. As far as the tension goes, refer to the AC Manual for that. Usually it is measured by putting a certain tension on the track and measuring the distance between the track and the wear strips. For 2000, it was 20lbs of tension on the track and somewhere around 1 3/4" gap between the strips and the track. Also, check the track alignment too.
