I just got a 1000r. I want some opinions on a few things. First off is lift kits. Great for added clearance but has anyone noticed having axle problems. What about snorkels. A technician told me unless I plan on being in water a lot of the time, I should stay away from them because clutch overheats. I would love to lift my unit three inches and put a snorkel on it with some silver backs but I don't want to be blowing axels and screwing my clutch. Any thoughts?

You should ,be fine with a 3 inch lift and as far as snorkels find another technician because as long as its snorkeled rite you wont have any problems

To bad no one makes axles yet! I've been waiting 8 weeks for an aftermarket axle with no luck. But call everybody and all they will say is 2 weeks lol. With a 3 inch lift I don't see any problems with axle bind it's just not that much of an angle. And I'll have to second what duke said snorkeling the maverick if done right will cause no adverse effects so get after it.

Or just do it yourself, it's really easy and u save yourself a few hundred. I just went with 2 inch Id black PVC. Don't get crazy with alot of bends because that restricts airflow,and it will work just fine. I think I've got 85$ in my snorkles. I even took the time to paint them flat black to match the cage.

I have 30" moto monsters on mine, they ride alot rougher than the 30" backs I have on my XMR. But honestly once I added power steering to the maverick, I dont even notice the monsters any more. The terms are a nice tire but dont pull as hard as backs or the monters do. And they dont clean out near as well either. What Ive learned in the past is just use a lil common sense when you have overly aggressive tires and you'll be fine. Plus, can am stock axles are pretty damn strong in comparison to other axles. Driller77 is the only person I know of that has blown one. But he will tell ya it was his own fault :big smile:
