I have just recently bought a 1997 ZR 440 Snopro from my buddy and I was wondering if anyone had any pointers on what to look for in common problems or flaws in the machine over years of riding.

Check for cracks in the bulkhead in front of your chaincase and roughly the same area on the left side...

You may want to replace your driveshaft bearing on the left side too before you get out on the snow...

These motors were fairly solid. The bottom end (crank) was the basis for the 500, 600 series.

The chasis is the biggest fatigue issue with these sleds.

I would try and find some rail braces for the skid frame (these came stock from 2K on I believe on all ZR's).

Other than that there wasn't many issues with these sleds... I have a good buddy that rides one (it is bent about 9 ways from Friday, but it goes to beat he!!).
