I have 10000Km on my 08 Renegade 800R. No mojor problems yet, but its starting to backfire on shutdowns and going into reverse. Just wondering what kind of milage you guys are getting and what should I expect on this motor.
Duke1- I had a 2008 gadex 800r with over 4200 miles and It was running just as strong as It did when It was new, I ended up totaling the sled so I bought a 2010 Gadex 800r with the insurace money and I still have the sled & It has over 6400 miles & still running strong, I take good care of my sleds, this fall I will have the dealer check the compression & If It's low I will put fresh pistons & rings, but if they tell me It looks good I will just drive It for another season, my dealer told me he's pulled pistons out of 800r motors taht guys wanted freshened up and there motors had over 8000 miles on them & the pistons still looked good! I ride my sled hard but I don't abuse It, & always let It warm up, and run doo's semi synthetic oil, I want to keep for 1 more season & get a 800 etec!!
