take it around the house for a few miles make sure nothing will leak once u get out there, make sure all bolts/nuts r snug that look important , lol break the belt in the first 25 miles good , up down throttle nothing hard for long time, get another set of tie rods and get a front gusset kit and tire patch set, if u have XRS make sure bead lock bolts r tight

All these things are the minor little annoyances we have all experienced. ..not trying to scare anyone.. just saving you a trip down hard knock lane... it's not like these machines are catching on fire or anything like some of those "other" brands.. lol

well put 9 hours on the maverick with out a issue , mud hills water rocks 70 miles all day riding never once a single issue that I know of. I havent had time to really check everything over but it ran flawless. I hit a pretty nasty hill climb and was impressed it made it up in 2wd with ease. I am going to pop open the clutch cover area and check for the update on the clutch stud. Also the sport low mod was perfect for the woods riding loved it. I never smelled any belt all day I kept it in low when I needed and when it was a long open trail I put it in high and got it..... it was sunny and 60 still some ice and snow here and there but not bad at all. this weekend im putting my viper 5k and ct gusset on.

Guys, I just checked and the shock O-rings fit the cap perfectly.....Since, it would cost about as much to ship it as I could sell just one of them for, if you buy a set of my Shock O-rings and you want an extra one for the coolant bottle, I will throw it in for free. Just let me know when you place the order if you want the extra one.

It's a 14 but I've read some came with and without it....it'll be in for its 10 hour service so I'll make them do it if it's not done. A question how come the can am rotax motors do not have a external oil filter like a Polaris ... you'd think it would be better external...
