2013 Can Am Renegade - 2 2 4 On The Fly Or Not ??

Recommended Posts

While riding a Renegade in 2 wheel drive, must you come to a stop to engage 4 wheel drive? Or can you switch back and forth between 2 and 4 wheel drive while riding like you can on a Polaris?

Thanks

i was always under the impression that it is alot less hard on an atv or vehicle to switch stopped or at a crawl. but new technology advertises shift on the fly ... i'm old school, i stop and shift. what does the owners manual recommend?

I also thought you can switch on the fly, but it is better to stop and engage 4WD then proceed. What year us your ATV?

can-am recommends to switch at low speeds ..and with out the rear tires spinning in mud or loss of rear traction.. but i have seen it done at different speeds and while spinning the rears in mud ... but have heard noises that didnt sound good on there machines ... so i would say shift at your own risk at high speeds and durring rear traction loss ...

      Branching off the Can-Am Forum to let anyone here know about my snorkel kits for the Can-Am Renegade G2 models, you can see it on ebay here:
      Can Am Renegade 800 1000 Custom Snorkel Kit for G2 Models 2012 2014 | eBay
      Its a full do it yourself kit that is cheap and easy, Kit 1 includes everything you need to get the tubes up to the dash pod, how you want your exit pipes are completely up to you, flush agaisnt the machine, up and facing down like your typical snorkel setup, up 2 feet, the sky is the limit!! Kits 2 is everything you need with my designed exit pipes, flush against the machine. Kit 1 is only $100 and Kit 2 is only $125. I wanted to make it cheap so everyone can do it themselves, both kits come with SUPER detailed instructions, Kit 2 is 19 pages with full pictures! Any questions feel free to ask, you can contact me directly via ebay, private message thro here, or my direct email - [email protected]
