Can an Arctic cat (Suzuki) 440 fan be overbored to 550cc? Or would I weaken
the cylinder walls to much? I'm planning a test engine for research. Any
help would be appreciated

Although it is probably not "economically prudent", the only limit on an
overbore is finding a piston to fit, and running into the studs, or water (or
air in your case). If it is what you want to do for fun, good luck and have a
ball. If you want to do it to make money, it probably isn't a good investment
UNLESS you are building for a certain class of racing and it will give you
that extra edge, at least until the first tear down. Either way, it's your
time and your toy, you might just as well do what you want with it. The Wiseco
catalog, and tech line are good sources for getting the piston dimensions (pin
dia, ring pin location, etc) that you will need to find the closest to "right"
piston.
