Just got the 2013 maverick Xrs, so far love it. Have not had a allot of time to ride it as of yet. Went to the dealer to by a more family orientated Yamaha Viking, ended up with the Mav. The Viking was the same cost after the adds I had planned. Got the Mav for what I think was a great deal. 15.2 with extended warranty before tax. I appreciate all the info posted on here, I've been reading for days. Sounds like the biggest issue is clutching. I came from Brute Forces and had great luck with Vforce john. I think this will be one of my first mods.
