    New ride

    I just picked up a 97' xcf 440. Great price. $400.. Wondering whats the best spark plugs and oil to run in it. I want it fast and to be able to beat 600cc sleds!! I also heard something about a powerband? Is this something I can buy?

    You have to get some spark plugs out of a Ford Mustang. They run over everything.
    2016 Polaris Pro-RMK 800 163"
    1998 Arctic Cat ZR 600 EFI "Custom"
    1996 Ski-Doo Formula III 600

    A mountain lion roaming the prairie found a bull, killed it and ate the entire bull. With a heavy belly, unable to walk, the lion laid in the tall grass moaning and roaring. Soon a hunter, attracted by the roaring, shot and killed the lion.
    Moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut!
