Bryan’s Renegade retains the stock
5.4-gallon OEM tank. He doesn’t need
anything aftermarket to finish the two-
hour races that he competes in. In
the wheel department, the Renegade
has black STI cast-aluminum true
beadlock wheels wrapped with
Kenda Bear Claw HTR 25-inch tires
front and rear. Rath Racing made a
cool aluminum bumper for the front
of this XC rig that has no issues taking
a good pounding on some trees. For
protection, it has full-aluminum skids
on every inch of the chassis. This is
a must if you plan on taking your
utility quad racing. One of the newer
products on Buckhannon’s Renegade
is the Bike Master digital readout
battery. It has a button that, when
pressed, reads the current power
output that it’s drawing. Covering that
battery up is a comfy Quad Tech seat.
It has a custom-pinned seat latch to
ensure that the seat does not come off
during the long race. If you’ve ever
lost your seat during any type of ride,
you know how taxing that is on your
body—ain’t nobody got time for that!
The Renegade still has the
adjustable electronic power steering
equipped. This is such a nice feature
to have, especially in four-wheel
drive. It helps to fight the front end
and fatigue. Bryan prefers to use the
highest setting, so it makes it easy to
dodge the trees that tend to move on
their own. Utility quad racers have
found a cheap and effective way to
Big Gun’s dual-exhaust kit sounds
amazing and gives this rig even more
horsepower. Just like the front, the BRP
aluminum skid plates protect the vital
parts of this machine.
Winning comes natural to Buckhannon, and he has the hardware to prove it. He has
won eight GNCC utility championships.
Why is there “blue carpet” on this quad? It’s actually air-conditioning media, which
prevents it from packing the radiator or building up on the machine.
Custom Axis shocks make the
Renegade glide over obstacles like a
Cadillac. Bryan wraps his exhaust for
better protection and performance.
Buckhannon prefers the strength of the
STI true beadlock cast-aluminum wheel.
They are wrapped in the Kenda Bear
Claw HTR tires with Tire Balls installed
to avoid flats.
The Quad Tech seat’s gripper material
kept us from sliding around while riding,
even in the mud. Buckhannon had a
custom seat latch made so his seat
won’t fall off during a race.
