Here she is guys it is a 2002 Arctic cat sno pro ZR 440/ D&D 720 kit For the most part it is pretty clean The pipe is a little rusty but I think it should make it through the season, If we get another warm day around here I may paint it, I am also going to clean it out a little bit give it a a few shots of grease. The sled came from D&D Performance and since it was bought it has been a back up sled for the owner of the sled. I picked it up for $2600 it came with a gallon of royal purple, C&A pro skis, Brand new stud boy carbides, and a cover. And yes that is the exact amount of miles on this sled. Sorry about the yard it has been hectic lately trying to get ready for winter and building a deer stand.

Nice sled, pretty clean. Now that's a 720 conversion done on the 440 motor? How is it gonna do for life span?

I think it is a 720 motor from D&D and for durability the sled originally came with twin pipes, and they guy had a stock pipe put on to help make it more trail friendly. it has oil injection so no need to premix.

The 720 made a name for itself on the 01-02 ZR 500/600's. It then became a Big Bore option for the SnoPro 440 and F5 motors, consisting of (as I recall) all new cylinders, pistons, head, power valves, and twin pipes. In this specific case, the twins were replaced with a single pipe for better trail manners.

Almost anytime you start playing with some of the older big bores, your reliability is going to go down. Being D&D's sled, I would hope they would have had it setup pretty decent. Just don't burn it down, parts are not cheap for those motors!

that sled will look great with a good cleaning.

they guy said that he knew every person that owned it and it was always a backup sled for every body and including himself he was the 3rd owner, took it for a rip in the field last night and it has some snap off the line

Im not sure if yours is activated by the brake light but the little switch that plugs into the brake housing on my '03 F7 is around 20 bucks or so.

You can use any switch you want if you're pinching pennies. Doesn't have to be a cat part.

yes mine is activated by the break lever, i currently have a toggle switch that turns the lights on or off is this on other firecats or just sno pro models?
