2010 Can-Am Renegade 800r Tracks causing plastics to melt

What makes you think that putting the tracks on caused the hole? You say the hole was close part of the exhaust, I would assume that it was heat from the exhuast that melted the plastic. If adding the tracks is what made the difference, that would mean that the added load is making the engine run hotter. You may want to beef up your cooling system, run a higher octane fuel, or get a fuel controller so you can richen up the air/fuel mix.

Thank you all for the advice. I think I got it figured out. The factory put extra heat tape where it had melted and told me that there wasn't any there on the old one. I had to hold my tongue because I had told them that to begin with. The tracks are an added load so the engine runs hotter and not as much air goes through the machine. When they had melted we were not running in good snow so that probably had something to do with the lack of cooling also. It is all good now no more melting. Hopefully!!!

      Hey all back again with my 1989 moto 4 250.
      After putting a new carb on it it's really sputtery, it has new gas and I'm wondering what to tune on the carb to make it idle better. I've attached a video to describe the issue more. The bike is still work in progress but I think the video gets the point across. Thanks!

      I have been exploring all the options available, so many, its hard to choose. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Honda Pilot, Subaru Outback, and Kind of looking at the Outlander, although its a little small,  the new one is nice looking. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or gripes with any of these rides. I have driven Jeeps for the past 25  years and they have been great, but their price point has gotten to high. Expieriences good or bad would be helpful. Thanks!
