800 renegade is an unknown quantity at this point
Default 2009 ptek motors

hello everyone, i had just bought a sled which is a 2009 skidoo mxz rengeade x 800r ptek. it has 6000 miles and bought it for 3800 bucks. Motor wise everything is stock. i have been reading and doing searches on the ptek and ive seen some very bad comments towards the ptek motor. im going up the UP this season and beginning to hesitate bringing this sled thinking it may blow up. Any help or owners of the ptek have any advice or tips? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

Wow 6k on a stock motor, I would do a compression test on both cylinders and make sure they are up to par. Then I would send the clutches off to Sledhead Racing to have them go through them just to be safe. The ptek motors were great motors I thought never really heard of them having any bad habits from what I remember.

The p tek is still a good motor, but with yours Iíd be going threw it. Do a proper compression check, crank run out, go threw the clutches, clean the valves, carbs, check motor mounts, adjust the oiler, check the reeds, chaincase, etc. A really good look over.
If nothing has never be done to that thing, Iíd be looking at doing a top end and a full rebuild for both clutches. Also fixing what else you find.

Iíve seen one motor go over 9000 miles with nothing done to it till one piston went down and the owner ran it hard in the mts. Also Iíve seen others not even make a 1000.
Itís a gamble on when they go, preventative maintenance is piece of mind. So itís up to you.
