My Ride: 2012 Outlander 1000
Location: Kincardine
I don't necessarily think can am is the greatest machine ever.I am actually a big yamaha fan aswell, I just belive it is much more productive helping guys solve problems with there bikes, Of course every bike is going to break down eventually, I choose not to share all experiences of having rides cut short due to other brands bikes, but of course if I learn anything useful or positive, I'll save it for the future... Helped out plenty of guys over the years, and would gladely pull any of the turkeys in this thread out to, Hopefully they would do the same. There are advantages and disadvantages of every make and model out there....If your riding the bike that you think suits your needs and riding style. All the more power to you. The more you know about them all the better off your quading is going to be.....

Hey guys... as usual great debates, always fun to see who likes what and dislikes but can we please keep the F=bombs to a null... Lets find other words we can politely use to show our disgust with how much our machines brake down...

My Polaris 800 is in the shop more then it is on the trail but my buddies have other brands and theirs isn't much better... LOL

Have fun.... Carry On !

:ride:

in my experience the most common reasons rides get cut short is some guys don,t maintain their ride, no matter what brand

My Ride: 2015 Rubicon
Location: Grande Prairie, Alberta
My was fine stock, not jumpy like you describe. I installed a QSC clutch kit with a 2200rpm engagement primary spring and it was absolute trash. Exactly what your talking about. Couldn't stand the bike with it. I tore it out and installed a CVTech Primary modified by Airdam, with as low engagement as I could get. Very smooth like stock now.

But, being jumpy at low speeds is the nature of the beast. idle speed is around 1200rpm, engagement is at around 1700rpm. I have never had a problem with the machine in stock trim, or with my CVTech, I load my Outty into my truck no problem. Sounds like you just need to understand how it works, and how to make it work for you.
