Got a buddy that is a tech at a local can am dealer. He has a maverick in there that has teeth chipping away in the rear end. Explained the noise mine was making and he said sounds like that's what's up with mine. Along with both inner cv boots leaking grease and an awful rattle coming from up front somewhere and not hitting 8000 rpm's ....not too impressed with the quality of this machine. Hopefully it will hold up to the turbo I want to put on it after all of that is fixed!
