I was just curious how many people are running something other than stock pistons in their 08-10 800 CFI's. It looks like there are a few different options out there from what I can tell. The Fix Kit seems to be the most popular and Terra Alps also has a kit with a billet head. RK Tek looks like they will have a drop n kit with a billet head as well. Another option is the single ring turbo piston from Carls Cycle. I'm curious if this piston would be a better option than the stock dual ring piston from the 2010 update?

For the guys replacing parts, what is everybody running?

I have a 09 D8 with a Boondocker turbo. Have the updated 2 ring pistons, head and last 09 flash. Have about 2100 miles on it and just took the motor down b/c I found the mag side pistons scoring a little on the EV side. Talked to the local dealer today and I am going to put in a set of the stock updated 2 ring pistons, hone the clyinder a little and get back on the mountain. Thought about the "fix" but am in the same boat as most, I really wanna hear some feed back from people that ride the steep and deep and that have or don't have turbos. Until then I will be back to stock. Hopefully that lasts for another 2100 miles.

I was trying to get an idea how many members are actually running an aftermarket top end?

I just installed "The Fix" kit in my '09 Dragon. Had 1250 miles on machine/engine. As well a new head, Power Addition 12.5.

Wiseco pistons with 08 head and 2010 cylinders. Can't remember for sure, but they have at least 700 miles on them. Still working great.

No one has picked up the Terra Alps kit with cast pistons?

Installed new 09 cylinders, the Fix Kit, 08 head & 08 fuel map. Still plan on running the PCV with an adjusted fuel map for our elevation to match the 08 head & fuel map.

Monte,

Has R44guy taken his sled out yet this season with the Fix Kit? Haven't seen him posting on the forums yet this season with his riding results...

No, not yet. We are both in MN and it's still 50 deg outside uhgg. :face-icon-small-sad I don't think either of us are planning much riding until after the 1st of the year. Although, I've sure been doing a lot of wrenching on sleds already this year. :face-icon-small-win I don't remember if he rode it anymore last season after he had it on the dyno or not.

50 degrees yuk. it is 20 degrees here and a 1.5 feet of snow down low and more on the way this weekend:face-icon-small-hap

Would you please ask him if he would send me a copy of his fuel map?

Looking at adding a switch to my PCV and use two maps one for high elevation and one down on the rivers/lakes.

word on the street is you can run the 2011 pro piston in the d8. Same exact piston just tighter piston too cylinder clearance. Exactly the same skirt height and everything...Nice reliable cast piston at a 170 bucks a pop thats what I'm going for.

I'll pass it on. Are you running the BMP pipe? That's what his map is for. Otherwise I also have the SLP and both DTR maps I can send you. Just PM me. I have been running the slp map with stock pipe and modified intake with very good results, but started playing around with the auto tune late last year. Just trying to adjust better fueling on the top end.

akrevrider , I'm hoping The Fix will be hear this week for her 2010 , it's got just about 2500 on the stock pistons and the PSI is between 108 and 109 pds . I was up at 4:00 this morning ( snow bug is biting hard ) putting in a new short block in my ride :madgrin: I'll be reporting back after a long Thanksgiving weekend on how The Fix works .

I was looking for a BMP pipe but found an Aaen pipe that goes with the Polaris service silencer ( 700 stock can). Had been running the Skinz Ultra-Q but want to give my ears a break and see on R44guy's dyno that the stock can did well making power with a pipe.

The Aaen pipe fuel map should be close to the BMP pipe & stock can combo. Would really like to try the fuelmap from the dyno session.

Will shoot you a PM and appreciate your help on the fuel map.

Are you going to reuse the cylinders again? If so make sure to use the hardened hone that Polaris recommends using. With that (108/109) compression the engine was sucking air bigtime and will really come alive with the new pistons.

Understand about the snow bug with all the new snow just watch out for rocks etc. Have been reading the Peterville report and they have a couple of feet and more on the way!

If you have any questions you can call the HPAK Willow store and talk to the Service Manager about the tricks/tips installing the Fix Kit. They kept an eye on mine for the first results in AK and now have decided to carry it as an aftermarket option for sleds out of warranty.

Please post back your results after the Fix Kit and how your install went.

Good Luck,

akrevrider

There really wasn't much to the BMP map if I remember right. Added some fuel through the mid range mostly. The pipe made full use of the overly rich top end mapping.

I've run Aaen pipes before and really liked them. I will be curious to hear how you like yours on the dragon.

The BMP fuel map should be really close and R44guy's dyno session confirmed it. Pretty sure it will match up well with the Aaen pipe.

Will post up the results on how the Aaen pipe performs on the Dragon.

FYI....The single ring turbo piston is no longer available for the 800 CFI.
