Re: What yr. did Arctic Cat make black 440\'s?
Yeah, they are not a bad sled, like I said I had a 92 Jag 440, and then a 95 Zr 580, the Jag was by far the better sled. They are decent on fuel, ride along fairly well, although I did end up having to put 96 trail studs in it to keep it from "fishtailing" on the trail. Anything over 3000 miles you should have the clutches checked out, cats have a tendency to need the clutches rebuilt around 2500-3000 miles, if you do it before they go completely its realativly cheap. I ended up putting new bearings and rollers in both the jag and the ZR. If I were you, and was not looking for the fastest sled, I would stick with a jag or something like that which is fan cooled, the liquid cooled cats are much harder on fuel than the fans, plus much easier to take care of. I had over 6000 miles on the Jag when I traded it in, and to this day it was one of my favorite sleds to ride, good luck
