Have a new r4 approx 800 miles just noticed the tach wont sweep with ignition on but the speedo does, also will start with out the clutch engaged.  my 2012 r4 tach and speedo both sweep and it wont start unless the clutch is engaged , any ideas why?. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks Matt

Probably design variations and software changes over the years.  Your new R4 (presuming it's 2014 or later) has the 1100cc engine with a different computer than your 2012.  On my 2014, both tach & speedo sweep and will start as long as the transmission is in neutral.  As long as your tach and speedo work normally while driving, I don't think I'd worry too much about it.

Thanks for the reply it runs perfect the tach didsweep when I first got it , also noticed it's hard to start most times , I haft to actually hold down the accelerator to get it to start about 80% of the time just wondered if it was a software issue. other that that it runs great there is a big difference in my old one verses the new one  old one will go pretty close to 70mph the new one must have really low gears in 5th gear every 1000 rpms is 10mph  at 50 mph in turning 5000 rpms  so about 30mph is as fast as I go in it. Thanks Again for the reply. Matt

A little bit of rambling on my part here.  I'm only familair with my machine.   There may be variations between model years.  My speed is also 10 mph / 1000 rpm.  I've never had my machine over 35 mph - too fast for this old goat and also too fast for the trails I ride.  This engine is an over square engine.  That is to say the bore is larger than the stroke.  They are designed for higher RPMs.  Myu speedo redlines at 75 mph - implies that the engine redlines at 7500 RPM.  The Renegade uses gearing through the transmission and differentials to put more torque to the drive axles. The 800cc & 1100cc Renegades had a transmission with the part number:  5TO7D1   From the part numbers, it appears that the Trooper and Renegade both use the same transmission for the 800cc & 1100cc engine packages (Trooper 1100cc only).  Mine won't start until the gauges complete their sweep. Then it starts right up without any accelerator or clutch input.  Does your engine turn over with the clutch pedal released?  If not, your model year might have a safety switch with the clutch to prevent starting without the clutch being depressed.

      I have a 2020 800 sx with about 16 hours on it.  From day one I have heard a clunking noise from the front end going over bumps.  Has anyone else experienced this?  Also this past weekend while out riding I heard a noise that sounded like the dump bed bounced three or four different times, again has anyone experienced anything like that.  Thanks, gary

      I have recently acquired a 2012 CFMOTO 500 CC side by side. The previous owner said that it ran great but had a gas leak by the throttle body that caught fire and ruined most of the parts on top. It also melted the cover and fan for the stator. Does anyone know of a good place to get all of these parts? I usually use Amazon for all my 2020 hisun parts, but can't really find the ones I need for this. If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance

      I need to find a new inner front wheel bearing seal for my 2012 bennche bighorn 700. I ordered a front wheel bearing kit and the inner seal is too big. I need to find just the seal and it needs to be the same od as the bearing. The specs listed are 55x38x8. Does anyone have a line on what I can get? Thanks. Our local Bennche dealer is no longer ordering parts and I don't want to order another kit with the same issue.

      Can anyone help me figure out a part number for a replacement clutch. I have an older bobcat 2200 gas UTV and I have called local UTV/ATV suppliers and they do not have what I need. I was told by one that it would be a polaris clutch but I can not find any information as to which one to order online.

      So i have a 2011 EFI 700. the SxS will crank right up everytime without any issues. If i let it run or ride it for about 10 mins it will shut off and then it may turn on if i am lucky but most time i have to let it sit for like 3 hours and then it will run again. i have done the following
      -New fuel filter
      -New injector
      -New spark plug
      -New coil pack and plug wire
      -New air filter
      Also could i get a grizzly 660 engine and put in it or would it not work.

Relays and fuses checked and pulled and reseated. New battery even. Thanks yall.

      Pre-2014 Renegade with the 800cc engine.  Much of this may apply to the R4 also.
