  1. REV-XP/XS Chassis: Renegades/Freeride/Backcountry
    So yesterday we did about 150 miles and as I was leaving the gas station I took a wrong turn and as I put the sled into reverse it died. While Inspecting the starter/ring gear I noticed that the starter gear was stuck on the ring gear and not disengaging. After getting it off, I was able to get...
  2. REV-XP/XS Chassis: Renegades/Freeride/Backcountry
    I just rebuilt my 09 mxx renegade 600 etec (clutch side jug, 2 new pistons and rings) The sled will start up but requires throttle to come to life and as soon as it gets its two beeps out its shutting itself off. When I Blew the sled up I was able to start it after it cooled down so I know...
  3. REV-XP/XS Chassis: Perf. Trail 120-129 Inch Models
    SHOULD I BUY IT??? Just went and looked at 2008 Ski-doo 800R MXZ Renegade. 3150 miles. Electric start. Reverse. New skis, new track -1.5 inch lug, 137 inch long track. It may not be what you want, but it IS what I have been looking for. Seat in great condition, everything cosmetically...
  4. Sledding - General Discussion
    Have a coolant leak on my sled. Just bought it guy said he did top end 600k ago. Just wondering how deep i should dig. Doesn't fire on clutch side. Has good compression on both sides better on side that isn't working. Good spark etc. Has coolant in muffler and only in side that's not firing...
  5. REV Chassis - Performance and Trail Models
    Hey guys, I just rebuilt my 05 mxz 800, it had low compression on one cylinder before the rebuild and about 6000 miles so I decided to do an overhaul. My problem now is after the rebuild the compression is so high I can't pull it to turn it over more than once. If I pull the plugs it turns over...
  6. REV Chassis - Performance and Trail Models
    Getting ready for the upcoming sledding season. 4200 Northern Wisconsin trail miles. She's slowly developed knocking noise - sounds like piston slap. Starts and runs flawlessly. Compression unknown at this point. Take a listen. Would you do a top end at this time or wait another season...
  7. REV-XP/XS Chassis: Renegades/Freeride/Backcountry
    Hi everyone, I have a 2012 skidoo renegade x 600 etec with 10,000 flawless kilometers on it. I am thinking about freshening up the top end before next season just as a precautionary measure and I'm wonder what is the best way to break in these new pistons. I hear that the etec injectors don't...
  8. MXZ / Legend / Summit / Grand Touring / Formula
    I bought a 2001 MXZ off kijiji last year. I didn't find out until later he had done an engine swap on it. I found a whack of problems from the carb drain coming out and the clutch coming off as well as others very soon after it was in my possession. I think I got most of his mistakes figured...
  9. MXZX Race Sleds
    I'm rebuilding my 2015 600 RS and had a couple questions for anyone that has thrown one of these back together. Wondering if anyone has the torque specs for the head bolts, cylinder bolts, and crankcase bolts as well as the tightening sequence for each. I have the sequence for the head just not...
  10. MXZ / Legend / Summit / Grand Touring / Formula
    I was wondering what would be good compression for my 97 F500, I have the shop manual and I couldn't really find anything. A lot of people say 120 psi, but I am wondering what it should be for my sled considering it is a 494.
  11. REV Chassis - Mountain Sleds
    ive got a 04 rev 800 that I am doing a top end in with mcb pistons, wondering what the break in procedure is?
  12. Freestyle / Legend / Tundra / Expedition Sport
    Hi, As I mentioned at the end of last season my 94 Tundra stopped running well and barely limped back to the trailer. I was out with both the 96 and 94. During the ride I got worried that someone had put something in my gas when the Tundra was left on my trailer or the oil mix was wrong since...
  13. REV-XP / XM Chassis - Mountain Sleds
    Hi, I have a new rebuilt 800r, top end duel ring pistons, and complete lower end crank, bearings, etc. Was breaking in the new engine using varying rpms, extra oil in gas, all the good stuff. Have stopped at 10 mile intervals to let engine completely cool. At thirty miles in I was going about 25...
  14. MXZ / Legend / Summit / Grand Touring / Formula
    Just finished top end rebuild, started right up, sounds great and breakin is going well. I am having a high idle issue, where it idles around 3000 rpm. I did add throttle extension so I think it might have to do with the throttle cable and carb set-up. Any insight would be helpful.
  15. MXZ / Legend / Summit / Grand Touring / Formula
    alright so i picked up this 02 mxz olympic edition the other day for $300 bucks, got a great deal, 4800 miles. Owner says he run it out of oil and engine seized. next day it unseized it self and added oil in it, started it up and died 700 ft later. As soon as i got it home I ripped the top end...
  16. Mach Z RT and MXZ 1000 SDI Models
    So I spent 3 months researching, buying parts, and completely rebuilding my '05 1000 SDI engine. I got it all back together, ran it for about 1/2 hour (2 15 minute runs for heat-cycling). I decided to pull the head today, to look and make sure the cylinders weren't getting scored or anything...
  17. REV-XP/XS Chassis: Renegades/Freeride/Backcountry
    Blew a top end in a 2010 800r renegade x, needs a cylinder and a full rebuild, what is the best way to do it, I'm looking for it to be as reliable as possible... How much will parts cost, what are the best parts, where should I order them, and any tips on cleaning power valves!? Thanks guys I...
  18. MXZ / Legend / Summit / Grand Touring / Formula
    Hello, I have recently purchased a 2002 MXZ heritage Edition 700cc, The sled runs great so I think. I was watching a video on you tube of a guy getting 110mph or 177km/h in +/- 13seconds and he was still climbing before he let go of the throttle (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzem7igDcxo). My...
  19. Mach Z RT and MXZ 1000 SDI Models
    I need to rebuild the top end and try to figure out what has caused the heat seize. The sled sat outside over night in -16 degrees F. Had to jump start it to even get it to start. Once it was warmed up I took it for a ride. Not even 5 minutes down the lake at about 70 mph it just shut down...
  20. REV Chassis - Mountain Sleds
    Doing a bottom and top end rebuild on a budget. Picked up a 2005 summit 1000 for pretty cheap. it had 4500 miles and never had the pod filters installed. Engine was running rough. Belt dust was caked all over the intake. Looking at a rebuilt crank and new top end. Cylinders seems to have a...
