I want to put a clear tank on my SDI but my question is if i buy on off a carberated sled will the fuel pump from my 06 rev SDI 600 fit in any clear tank or do i have to find one with everything in it? or should I just get a jerry can? my fuel gauge dose not work and sick of guessing how much gas I have.
I would recommend that you simply get a Ski Doo REV fuel caddy that holds about 4 gallons and would be much more practical than all the cost and hassle of putting on a clear tank which might look odd. I have these on both my Renegades and they are great. They come up used on eBay quite often for under $100.00 You'll never worry about fuel and you should have a good idea about travel distance anyway on a full tank at about 18 miles per gallon.
Ive read a lot here about compression test results so could someone please expalin my results.
Engine: 07 600SDI Cold compression results: 130PSI each cylinder
Started the sled, burpped the throttle a few times to get the track moving and let sit and idle for 10 minutes and done another test. This time the reults were 140PSI in each cylinder. From the reading I done here on Doo Talk I thought the compression was supposed to drop?
What may have caused this?
Appreciate any help I can get. Thanks
I have two 2006 Renegade 600 SDI sleds with approx. 5,000 miles on each and they both have about 125 PSI cold and a little more warm which is not unusual since a warm-up slightly expands things to a tighter fit. Both engines run like new. I use a very accurate digital compression gauge and I believe that some folks get too concerned about what they perceive of as low compression at say 120 PSI without considering their testing gauge accuracy. Huge differences between cylinder compression is much more a concern than the height of the readings. Some owners want to tear the engine apart at 120 PSI which I think is unnecessary especially if the readings are not compared with another gauge. I have seen significant PSI readings differences between gauges on the same sled. If the sled runs good and has similar cylinder readings I would not worry about some magical number like 145-150 PSI. If its not broken......don't fix it!
so yeah my buddy took this video and is my can actually that loud or does the video amplify it cause when im riding i hardly hear it. ps its a mbrp standard
Trust me.....they are that loud! Try riding behind one all day. Get rid of the fart-can and go back to stock. Can's do nothing for performance and will only p!ss everybody off for miles around. Big noise does not equate to big power.
I have a 2003.5 BM 800 rev. It has v-force reeds, 380 mains, 17.5 pilots, 24/43 gearing, 1.5" intense, and some clutch work (as far as I know). I was wondering if there were any things to look for to improve my mpg (or correct any issues). I was getting 4mpg riding with the boys and 6mpg riding mostly 1/4 throttle with my wife today. Is there a posting on optimizing the 800 engine like i found for the 600 h.o.? I'm sure the obvious response is to sell it and buy something more current. I'd like to find out if there is anything I could do before selling this sled. It's just a monster and I'd like to keep it. I'm sure I was getting 120-150kms per tank last year with the only difference wsa going from 121"x1" 168 studs to 1.5" studless track. And now lucky to get 100kms to a tank. Thanks in advance for the help.
Oh yeah, plugs look great after wide open runs. Tan but not white. Seems to be rich on bottom end.
You're getting 4 miles per gallon on your sled? Cripes a friend of mine drives a semi and he gets 8 MPG on a good day! I would trade that sled in for a dog and shoot the dog.
