From what i have read bout 90 i think, dont quote me on it because thats what i think it is might be more actually.

Highest I've seen is 85 on speedo, stock track and 96 studs. That was with 20/43.

91 on the speedo this past weekend. It was on a lake with about 3 inches of snow but I was following the path of someone who went across a little earlier.

Same setup as above - 03, trail set-up, 20/43 gears, stock track and 96 studs.

On my '99 I was hitting about 90 with 21/43 gearing. Like others have said, if you want top speed and good gas mileage, you should look for a different sled. I'm actually going to gear mine 19/43 for more accleration but a lower top speed.

I have a buddy with a '00 600 and he gets better mileage and more top speed.

Mine generally will hit 85-89 mph on speedo...fully stock with 96 studs. As far as gas goes it will take as much as say a 700 or 800 depending on how hard it is being pushed if not alittle more. Generally my girlfriend drives this sled and gets the same gas mileage as my 700 and she would probably hit the most at 60 to 70 mph. My 99 is very reliable though not problems at all.

I'm just wondering what they are like and if its worh buying one for shagging around on and hitting a few jumps. Just wanted to see what the speeds are like on them and what kind of gas mileage?

speeds usually range from 70-90 depending on temp, snow conditions, clutch / gearing set-up ect...I usually burn just the same or more than the guys that have the 800's (Stock)

So far I've clocked 77 mph on my GPS with my 03 440X GADE with 20/45 gears and a 136X15X2" holey paddle track with 9" wheels. This was down a groomed trail and ran out of room. But WHO can read that tiny digital readout on the bottom of their tach ripping down a trail??? My huge riser gets in the way.




With a Tempaflow or ATACC you'll get around 10 mpg.

i have a 99 440 and ive had it at about 90. as for gas.....it all depends on how you ride. i use just a little more gas than the other guys we ride with but its because im always spinning the track and its geared low

i've hit 96mph on radar with my 99 and i've heard of ppl doing 110mph, when my machanic was setting up my sled he asked me if i wanted it set up for 110 but who wants that muhc speed on a zx, if i wanted speed then i'd go and buy a machz 1000 or soemthing like that

440x 19/43 chaincase... 82 mph. IF you get over 85 mph actual speed you would be very fortunate. SORRY... TOP SPEED IS NOT IN OR VOCABULARY. torque, jumping, holeshots & lightweight are the words of choice.

I have a 2000 440 and I rode last weekend and put on like a 120 miles and burned 15 gallons of gas, about 8 miles to a gallon. Not very good. I pulled over by the cop on my way back and he clocked me a 87 mph and that was pretty much tapped. I don't have studs and the sled is bone stk. I was actually thinking about selling it and buying another atv. If you are interested I am near the twin cities minnesota. The sled is a 2000 zx chassis 440. Absolutely mint no dents dings, the hood is practically new no scratches. It is all stk except for the handlebars are raised up and it has a power madd adjustable riser. Everything else is near mint. I had the shocks revalved for me 190 lbs. It has 150 psi both sides, runs perfect, mix my gas @ 36:1 and haven't fouled a plug yet.
I would like to get 2500.00.
