Is the sled under warranty still? You didn't say what year it is. If your dealer can't fix it, call Bombardier and tell them so. I wouldn't bother messing around with something the dealer should be able to fix. Mind you I saw a couple of Ski-doo dealers in New Hampshire that make my garage look like the new race shop in Valcourt. I wouldn't take my wheelbarrow to them to get fixed. We had a Polaris dealer in the area that looked pretty brutal too. (Durham area, not Apsley. You guys will know who I mean)

The visegrip is the only tool you need kind of shop.

kendell: tell us the year and we can tell you the resistance.
i know how you feel about the thing just quitting.
My 2000 Mach did exactly that, we were running really good stop for a break and wham, no spark.
the stator was toasted. lost the rest of the winter because the back order was 2 month long.
the 800's have had some real issues with the stators.

Come on skidoo guys he said it was an MXZ renegade 800.  Didn't skidoo just start making the renegade this year 2002.  So I would think it is under warranty.  But it is probably the stator or the dess messing up. I have heard of that happening.  But take it in for warranty.

Hi guys it's a 2002 still under warrenty.Yes we have one of those great shops with the vise grips as the main tool. So get this. Put sled in shop and they changed the coils. Did't have a chace to really ride the sled during the week, but ended up driving 6hrs to excellent mountain conditions. Pulled sled out of truck started and let it idle for 2-4 min only to have it quit.so much for good service. Left sled in shop in Chetwynd B.C. They seem to have a good shop. The only bad thing is it's 6hrs from home.I have a feeling it"s the stator. But if someone has the specs for resistance it would be great to have. To bad warrenty doesent cover travelling expenses.

My guess is that it is the stator.   Been there done that.  For about $250.00 U.S. you should be fixed.   Better yet, it should be under warranty.

With all the stator issues, especially in the 800's is there not a better after market stator available for these sleds?
