Tools for changing 800 etec plugs on trail 2016 xs renegade

23 January 2019 - 11:34 PM

BRP really dropped the ball on this sled.  No spares and no tools.   Did they forget that it's a 2-stroke??


Was 5 hours from home and a plug failed with 2100 miles on the sled.  Quickly discovered after searching through several gas stations and hardware stores that they can only be found at a dealer.  Managed to find a dealer an hour away and picked up some new ones.  Only wasted 4 hours!!  Now I have spares in my trailer.


Older sled had a place to carry spare plugs and came from the factory with tools that worked, so changing on the trail was no big deal.  Done it several times.  Couln't find a place to carry a spare and the tools that come on the belt guard for the xs renegade are useless.  Glad this didn't happen 4 hours ride from the trailer.


The only thing that worked was a plug socket and a wrench.  Probably would have been easier if I removed the hood, but don't want to carry more tools so I can take the hood off on the side of the trail!


Asked the dealer about trail tools and he looked at me like I was crazy.     


Wondering how others are carrying spare plugs and what tools they carry for changing.
