Thinking of a big bore, being I need too redo my motor. Planning of a shr or trygstad. Has anyone had both what one you liked better, how was the service.

I just can't make up my mind on who to go with.

Why isn't SHR 880 an option?

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!!

I've had several race motors 2 800rs and 1 860 from Trygstad and they have been absolutely fantastic. I'll be putting a 872 in my '15 renegade.

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.

Fred it's just a # and as long as it's pulling great and making good power and lasts it doesn't matter .
You think?

cant go wrong with any of them.

How much you want to spend?

less than 2000 go shr 860

shr880 AND 872 are about 2200$

shr880 (newest version) 3000 with bored carbs and y pipe (apparently this is the motor to beat)

both shr and trygstad can build mild to wild, compression, ignition, twin pipes etc.

few more that rip

arctic edge

rktek

split second

dmax (there 860 is top notch holy crap, but not cheap)
