i wanted to know about the reliability of a 2005 zr900 snopro and about how many miles can you put on it before a rebuild, and also how is the torque and the power and the suspension? if anyone could help me with these questions I would appreciate it


And if you could also tell me about the same things about a 2001 zr800.



Thanks adam

I have an 04 zr900. And I'll tell you that it is very reliable. I'm not sure when at what mileage you would rebuild the engine. I guess that would be a personal preference. The suspension is awsome. As for the torque. it has the power when you need it. The ZR's are a performance sled. It handles great through the trails. And it will kick butt on a staight away. I realy can't give you any type of specs. I'm just letting you know from my experience with zr900. And I love it.

ZR 800's are rock solid reliable as well. Tons of torque, make power at lower RPM's also.

Look into the powervalve shim issue if you buy one. Nothing to scare you away from either the 800 or 900, just cheap added insurance for a long living motor.

I have the 2001 ZR800 and it's rock solid.
They were recalled for piston replacements though. Check the serial # and with your local dealer to see if it has been done or not.

I had an '01 ZR8 since new.....4000 miles and 5 years, a recoil was my only problem. "Rock solid" is a term I often used to describe that sled.

I have an '02 ZR8 efi. It's been a phenomenal sled!! I'm almost @ 9000 miles. If I keep it next year, I'll rebuild the engine. It still has gobs of power!! I'd rebuild for peace of mind. Although I'm thinking about trading it for a newer ZR9 with around 2000 miles...

Definitely if you're looking at a Cat, go for EFI!! Unless you're into mods, EFI is the way to go!!
