New owner questions

This is a discussion on New owner questions within the Maverick X3 Max forums, part of the Can-Am Maverick Forums category; It does appear that you can spend more on extra stuff than what you did on the base unit!...

    Welcome to the forum. Enjoy your x3.
    I’m gonna be in vail and Breckinridge at the end of August. Taking my x3. If you know of any great trails let me know.

    Lot of good recommendations in this thread. I personally love my intercom kit couple with my Magellan trx.

    It allows my wife and I to talk and have actual conversations without having to yell. It’s a great safety tool also because we can communicate. Someone’s on blind left curves the passenger can see obstacle (idiots ripping down trail on blind curves) sooner than the driver can see them. Also the Magellan BT pairs to it so you can get turn by turn directions even off road. The headsets also cut down the engine noise. I personally think utv’s are a little loud inside the can.

    Pm me if you have trail ideas.

    Not sure yet how to PM, but I’m new to off roading so don’t know any trails there. We’re at St Mary’s; that’s a community about 10 miles NW of Idaho Springs at 10k’ elevation.

    Click on a member's name, the PM will be one of the choices.

    Get yourself a GPS device (I use one of my Samsung 10.1 tablets). Several excellent off road GPS software's to choose from.
    Can't hurt to get a book or 2. I have noth of these books for Arizona offroad adventures. Great to help pre plan a ride.

    I'd also suggest to always ride with another vehicle or group. Can't be hard to find in Colorado;

    Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails, 4th Edition https://www.amazon.com/dp/1934838268..._XOqlDb4RSDFRX


    Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails, 3rd Edition https://www.amazon.com/dp/1934838047..._6SqlDbZ3SD8QE

    Have a blast. Enjoy the ride, rubberside down...

    Desertdog hit the nail on the head... grease, grease, grease, grease... set your suspension to fox specs, tighten and inspect EVERYTHING, break in belt and learn your ride for when stuff gets hairy.

    If you are riding in woods I would recommend tire plugs and I got this compressor for $30 at harbor freight, fits in my tool bag in case of flats and runs off the plug in the dash.
