I am looking to purchase a Straightline 950 big bore motor to put into my 2006 Renegade 800. Does anyone have any experience with this motor, good or bad? Just wondering if it is worth the money and headache? The motor is used with approx 1250 miles on it. It is a complete motor with twin pipes for $1500. I am not using it in the mountains or lake racing, more crosscountry/trail riding.

Dont personally know anyone who has had that exact motor. But i will say straightline does really good work and has good products. A buddie of mine races watercross and has had them build a few motors for him and he has had really good luck with them. I would say to check the basics and if it makes you feel better give them a call and see if they will inspect it for you. They are good guys down there.

on their website it states "not for trail use applications" if i remember correctly... probably a great performance motor, but not trail friendly safe...

Race fuel......I'd almost bet.

Sounds like this thing is just a race motor and not going to be trail friendly at all. I think I will stick with what I have and maybe just port my cylinders and add a head, pipe and reeds. Something that is going to have a bit more power but still be reliable. All that will cost about the same money too.

Look into some RK Tek products, He makes great stuff. Have him port your cylinders and get a drop in kit and run it. Seems to have great reviews And im sure he will recommend you run your stock pipe and silencer so that will save you some coin.
