Re: zr 600

I rebuild shocks for two guys. One with a ZR500 and one with a ZR600EFI. Both machines have proven to be really reliable. They
have competed in two 400 mile x-country races that were (according to them) 400 miles of snocross. Weak points were the lower
cross link that the front of the rear suspension shock connects to, but it was updated this year, weak slide rails if you don't land
properly off of your jumps (SnoPros have better rails), broken front shocks (all Cats have a problem with this), and a couple welds
that needed to be re-done. These guys are REALLY tough on their machines, but all in all they held up well. The engines and
clutches have been stone reliable. If you want to get into snocross I would seriously look into getting a SnoPro440. You get a better,
stronger rear suspension, remote reservoir Fox clicker shocks, and handle bar mounted adjustable rear shock set-up. In the right
hands they will stomp the 600. SnoPros are limited pre-season only..so order yours now.

Re: zr 600

thanks xlt, im looking for the most reliable machine to compete with, thats why im thinking of a 600, 440's seem like they would need more upkeep, am i correct in that assumption? i dont have a mechanic to help me dial things in, and i want to keep upkeep cost at the lowest possible level.

Re: zr 600

The ZR440/SnoPro, MXZ 440 and the XCR440 all require a bit more maintenance due to the high R.P.M and the huge H.P. the
manufactures are sqeezing out of these small motors. However, they also get the cutting edge suspension upgrades etc..that make
it to the 600's a year later.
