I am hoping there are some other riders with the 800 Iron Dog that have done some clutching and gearing or both. I am seriously not happy with the top speed at WOT. Love the way it handles and the suspension is better than my '14 XRS(Except for the adjuster on the rail) I did buy it used with 750 miles on it. The clutches needed a cleaning and it runs RPM's at 8,000 sometimes at 8,150. I am just not that happy with the top end. I am a trail rider, no off trail for me. The stock gearing states 25/45. I was thinking of changing it to the same at the 120" sled and go 27/45. I know with the longer track it may be an issue on fuel mileage and effect the hole shot. Geared up my '06 Renegade and lost fuel mileage but still came out of the hole well. This sled is studded, 3 per window down the center. I am 6 ft tall and weigh in at bout 240. I could drop 30 pounds and maybe gain 2-3 MPH. My riding buddy still has his '14 XRS and can take me after about 60 MPH and pull right away. Give me some advise.

snopro734 I have to change gear oil in it this week anyway. I kinda figured it would pull with that gear. But really wanted to know if a 26 is better or the 27.

Well my 12 renegade X pulled the stock 27/45 gearing decent. 117 speedo, was 110 on GPS. For what it's worth anyways. I couldn't tell you on the 26 tooth, but either way I think you'd be happier.

Have to check and see if your stock chain would be long enough for the 26 and or 27 tooth gearing though.

Check your y pipe bolts I lost 2 and some were lose.. All set now flashes 8200 settles to 8000 and pulls 114 116
On speedo. I'm over 300 dressed 2600 miles. Was fading end of last year on the last ride. Great now.

When mine was running correctly I had a top speed of 112. It will barely pull over 90 mph and then falls on its face now.
Stock everything, 200lb rider.

I have a buddy that has the gear, I am going to pick it up today. The chain is a 104 and that chain is used on other models stock with 27/45 set up.

I thought they had this issue resolved. Thanks, I will check them also.
