Are you joking? Be prepared to have reductions on top speed though. If you don't have a good track then gearing is useless. Go down 2 or 3 teeth on the top gear. You could loosen your suspension straps but I'm pretty sure that's not the best for your sled's skid.

It's just a ditch banger so iam not worried about topend. The 440's don't go that fast anyway so it just to have fun in powder.

if you go to low on your gearing you still may not pull the skis, just spin the track.

I said 2 or three down on the top gear. Try 2 and see how you like it. You're going to have to count the teeth on the top gear then order one X amount of teeth smaller. Someone may be able to tell you what the stock gearing is on that but you don't know if it's been changed by a previous owner.

what would it do if the bottom was bigger?

Same thing I believe. Most people go up on the bottom gear once they have alredy gone down more then 2 on the top (Your chain will then be too short to go smaller on the top). But I think the chain length and the amount the tensioner can tighten varies sled to sled. I think it's just more common to go down on the top gear and I don't know why, maybe because it's cheaper to go smaller on the top then bigger on the bottom.

my dad has a mint 440 in his collection. I've moved it around the his yard before and gave it some gas. Honestly,i highly doubt that sled is capable of a wheelie. You need a bigger lug track than stock if you don't already to hook up for starters.

You would probably be good with a 1.25, I don't think you can go any bigger then that or you would have to go down on your drivers to clear the heat exchanger.
