what are the pros and cons of owning this sled i will do a lot of ditch banging and very aggressive trail riding but i dont want to spend hours on end wrenching on it i dont mind a little work i will also use this sled to pull the portable around

what is a good year to buy and how hard is it to oil inject it and new heads for 92 octane

excellent dicth banger and aggresive trail sled, lousy for pulling anything, the race models are pretty high strung, so if you don't want to do much wrenching I would stay away from them. I think you would have to be a pretty hardcore rider to make the work worth it.

I am not allowed to post links on here so you will have find it your self but check out dootalk and all your 440 questions will be answered. I have raced or rode only 440's or race chasis since I was 14 years old(28 now) and they make a great trail sled with a little knowledge of them. Once they are clutched and jetted right they dont require any more wrenching than a normal sled. You do have to be willing to put some time into getting them right.

Depends on your gearing- I ran stock gearing with my 04 440 and had 88mph top end. My buddy raced his crosscountry and hit 102 down a river different gearing, smaller lug track etc. My 440 with the 800 motor is geared two teeth different than stock and it does 94 on the gps. (it gets to 80 without the ski's touching the ground)
