I have never driven an xcr so i dont know if it will be better but my sled a 98 mxz 440fan runs excellent on the trails, they are very light and handle very well.I jump my sled alot not very big jumps just like 5 or 6 footers and it handles the jumps no problem. Hope that helps.
The suspension on your xcr is probably a little rougher riding than that on a 97 mxz 440. Although let me say this. The fan cooled model is going to be quite a bit slower than a xcr 600 triple. Also i think the 97 fan had a sport suspension, which will not hold up that well against a beating depending how big of "jumps" you take
