I sent my stuff to SHR. BJ's been great about getting back to me quickly whenever I have a question or concern no matter the day or time (I work a rotating 12 hour shift so getting ahold of business' can be a real hassle).
SHR is very good to deal with and builds a good product.
Have ran 3 different BB's . Two 880's and one 860.
SHR I preferred the best.
Haven't dealt with Trystad but he comes highly recommended also.
Can't go wrong with either I don't think.
Yes I agree with PF1572, They are both good builders, do a search and there are tones of threads on this. I love my 872, no comparison to my old 860. Dave is fantastic to deal with and has been a consultant for Skidoo for over 20yrs so he know his stuff. Warning; once you have rode a BB you won't be happy with stock lol, so beware there is no going back!!
880/860 and 872 all solid motors. Buddy has Tryg 872 and SHR 860, both rip. Running SHR 880 in my old mans sled, love it. Had SHR 860 before going 880 in his sled, 880 feels like it has a lot more torque. Biggest thing with any big bore is getting them setup for your riding style and elevation.
I've had great luck dealing w/ Big John so I end up being a cheerleader for SHR. Dave has the same type of following from his happy customers. You'll be happy w/ either builder.
this may be a stupid question?? do these big bore motors last for a long time and are they good for trail riding? just wondering.. I just blew my 800R p-tek motor last week in Fort Kent, and getting ready to do something with it
