Hello everyone, I figured I would pass on a few things that we have learned over the last two years with the 1000 Renegade XXC. Please read this information and decipher it as you see fit. Some of you know that I am the owner of Get-torqed, that being said, we are fortunate enough to have access to all of the go fast goodies that money can buy. I will list out what we have been testing on my personal Renegade and what has worked. Some of you know me and some don't. If I test a product and it works, we sell it, if It dont work, we dont sell it.
As the topic title states, I purchased this Rennegade in September over two years ago, it has been cross country raced, it has been mud raced, it has been in two 24 hour endurance ice races, coutntless 6 hour races. It has been ridden in the muskeg, ridden in the mountains, I have skipped water with it. It has been ridden hard to say the least.
We have laid out the ground work...
Here is what has made the cut, in no particular order;
The Bom Racing "Super Magnum" cams, In my opinion, these cams are a great cam for the XC, MUD, Drag racer guy that is looking for a cam that will run in the confines of the stock ecu. We have raced this cam at 7000-7900 rpm shift outs. It down right gets the job done. I have tried many cams in the 1000 and this cam is a no brainer. There are other cams that make more peak HP but this one builds HP fast and holds. I will include a video of me winning the over 800cc (no power adder class just to show how fast it moves out).
BM/GT 51mm throttle body, it has been working very well, not choppy at all, no reversion, it just helps get the required air into our corked up air boxes. Now, some 1000's will not run them, I have seen the MAP sensors go out of range and cause reversion but on my bike, it loves it.
Ported air box, these are a cost effective way to help get more air into the air filter chamber. Hole saw and peal and stick. I have had no issues with getting water past the water resistent screens. Now I dont spend much time with my handle bars under the water either!
Next, clutching, I feel that this is the first time that Can Am as got the stock clutching pretty good. But the stock primary will still slip on its self. We have been running a CVTECH primary paired with an STM Driven on this Gade since its first trail ride. We put 3500 kms on the first belt. I tried the machined, hardened outter spider fix, added a clutch kit, ran a machined OEM secondary and custom helix also but lost 6rwhp on the dyno. So the CVTECH and STM combo's are a winner in my books. This Gade runs 77-78rwhp at 2300' elevation on motor and 95 rwhp on NOS. We have had zero issues with the clutches. You must run the updated cover with the CVTECH though. At Get-torqed, we dont order the regular cover anyway. Its a very cost effective way to efficiently get your HP and torque to the ground.
Exhaust, we have tried many different headers and set ups but found that if you port out the stock head pipes, run our Dominator duals or one of our slip ons. They are as good or if not better than most of the full systems. I like the stock header style because it creates a lot less heat in the under seat and engine compartment. We are currently done testing our NEW Super Nasty full system. It has a BIG header system and a different style single can. It has proven to hold onto the HP a littler longer than the stock headers... Stay tuned for updates on that system, it will be sold as a RACE only set up.
Belts, We run the BRP belt only on our endurance race bikes. We are currently testing a couple of the Gates belts but have not testing long enough to pass a true judgement on them.
With cam's, ported air box, high flowing exhaust and intake set up, we needed to add fuel. We have been running a "The Bom Racing" edition Boss Noss Dobeck which adds fuel on and off the nitrous. It has worked flawless for throttle response, wicked easy to tune and is simple.
The last piece that I have been running is the first ever 1000cc G2 custom intake that fellow rider and CAT member Bullmoose made for us. It is much larger and does flow a lot of air.
Here's some proof of how my Gade runs, as I mentioned, please decipher as you see fit. I have listed some of the most cost effective and best performing parts and bits that anyone can add to their Rennegade 1000 and some of it will work on the Outlander 1000.
