So I plan to upgrade the track, gearing and clutching on my 2016 Renegade Sport. The long term goal is to improve overall off trail performance here in the U.P.
The following is a short list I what I am thinking of doing based on talking with other riders and reading reviews here.
What I would like to hear is your opinion and/or pointers on what I am planning, if you think there is a better option I would love to hear it.
1. Track upgrade: I have a lead on a good used 146"x2.26 ported track. If I go this route I would be looking at Ice Age rails to extend to 146".
Is there anything else involved with the rail swap or will my existing 137 skid components bolt right in?
Would I need to (or should I) upgrade rear wheels at this time?
Do you think I would see a significant difference with the 146x2.25 track vs just staying at 137" and buying a new 2.313 track (if it would fit)? Personal experience would be great to hear.
2. Clutching: I am pretty set on installing the DJ kit for this upgrade.
3. Gearing: I will be honest. I have never messed with the gearing on any of my machines.
What would be the recommended gearing for the 146"x2.25 track?
What would be the gearing for a 137x2.313" track
Overall, I know I could sell this machine and get a summit, but I would rather upgrade the machine I have and like.
