Fuel Testing

93 Pump Fuel vs. Renegade SX4 & SX4+

Today was spent burning High dollar race fuel in hopes of finding the answer, is it really worth it? I started off with my normal warm up and dyno adjustments as I would for any other tuning. While ripping off runs I paid close attention to things such as AFR, responsiveness, and run times. After about 20 runs on the pump fuel I was left believing that I had a good baseline to compare my next runs to. So I drained my fuel tank and started with the next test.

Can-Am Maverick

Slick Willy's had the opportunity to get their hands on one of the first Can-Am Mavericks. One of our great loyal customers ordered it from the factory and had it at our shop the day he picked it up. We teamed up with Barkers Exhaust to prototype a system for the Can-Am Mavericks. Check this out, the black muffler with yellow tag sure does stand out! To get your hands on any type of Barkers Exhaust System contact Slick's today!
