How do I make a rev 440 trail rideable. Ive heard i need different heads and gas tank. If you know what to do, what are some part numbers and prices. And are they dependable sleds

Phil,
You need the low comp heads and the larger tank and your all set.

Are they still pretty snappy sleds with the low comp heads or does that really downgrade the performance.

These are great questions. I am also wanting to buy a REV 440 to race a few snowcrosses and also ride a lot of trail miles. The head and fuel tank changes seem pretty easy. Does anyone know where to get these parts? prices? Will the 440 keep up with 700 and 800's on the trai? I don't care about lake racing but want to be be competitive on the trail? Any reliability issues? Thanks.

I was trail riding mine with the stock heads and all I did is put a bigger tank on it and run premium fuel. I dont no how cold you can ride it like that but I no they are jetted rich from the factory. I guess I wont recommend anyone do it but I didnt have any problems.

Why would you want the low comp. heads? just put the octane switch on the handlebar to the 91 setting, use premium fuel, and jet it for cross country according to the jetting chart on the clutch cover. The tank only holds 5 gallons, so I guess you may want to change that. and as far as reliability, and durability, my parts bill for the season went down by aprox. $4000.00 after switching brands from Arctic cat. Don't worry about reliability. These sleds are incredibly reliable, and durable.

Are clutch changes necessary when using the 91 octane switch? How does your Rev 440 perform on the trail compared to 800's? Thanks again for your help.

Don't need to change the clutching or gearing. I only rode an 800 rev once last winter for maybe 30min. or so. In tight twisty trails you'll have no problem keeping up. The 800 is no doubt faster, but you'd be pretty surprised how close they are 0-60 or so. One thing you may not like about the sled for trail riding, the suspension is very stiff.
