Hey Vodoo, sorry I havent been back to this site lately to see your post, Midlothian, Texas .

Question for 500 Renegade owners, I have 27 inch XTr's on 14 in ITP wheels, I really want to make sure the clutch hooks up well with tires and I have seen SEVERAL clutch kits on the 800's and what all these guys have been trying to figure out, I dont believe the clutch really should need work but whats your opinions? On the 500 do you think only change primary and sec springs?

Thanks!

I have 28" outlaws on mine. I'm using the orange secondary from highlifter. Works great for me.

The Dalton Kit has proven to be the best Clutch kit for the Can Am's.....

In my opinion, using the secondary spring only for a 500 with those tires is asking for belt slip. The dalton kit uses both a new spring and flyweights for better belt grip, and shift out. OF course its more expensive, but hey, isn't everything that works well costly?

I just wanted to let everyone know that I got my headers wrapped with the Thermotec wrap and got my HMF utility pipe put on a few days ago and got to take it out to the trails and see how it performs today.... I really think that it has helped the mid to low range on my 500 (based on the feeling in the seat of my pants), and it sounds outrageous, I am still on my stock air filter and no programmer, but both have been ordered. Go Get it!!!

I think I may have lost just a little top end, which is really only good for showing off, and being that I spend alot of time on tight trails, I like the added low - midrange power.

No, no quiet core yet, but it may be in my future. I didnt think the little 500 would put soo much sound out that HMF pipe, I had only heard the pipe on an 800 and didnt figure the 500 would have the guts for that much noise. I love it though, it sounds sweet

Do you all think getting the Uni filer clamp on that goes over the stock filter is just fine or should I get the one from can-am that is a UNI filter also with a adapter (not sure if they are the same or different)but can-am's price is under 40 us dollars vs rockymountainatv/mx.com for $28.00 US dollars ?I don't know if its a two stage(the can am certified one) or not but want to make the most long term reliable engine choice but I don't mud ride a lot but it gets very dusty around here during the summer but I do go through some mud but not too deep also just not two feet plus for reliability reasons.However if snow comes I will go as deep as possible,but that doesn,t happen here to often maybe once every years.
