I just purchased a Maverick 1000r this week (hope to pick it up by Friday).
How many actual owners of a Maverick 1000r on this site are truly having quality issues?
How does one find out what factory fixes have been applied to their specific machine?

9 weeks and 641 miles and no significante issues. The only problem I've had is where heat for the exhaust appears to be causing excessive wear on the drivers upper a-arm bushing. Dealer has a new one on order and is working with BRP on a long term fix.
Call your dealer give them your vin and they can tell you if you need to have any recall work completed.
I would abosolutly have the clutch bolt recall done asap if your qualifies, I put over 400 miles on mine before finding out about the recall and my bolt did nit snap. I have a co-worker that I ride with and they put 250mile on thier maverick before having the recall done. They also did not snap a bolt.

Mine has 471 miles and has not had 1 issue. Had the 10 service done by my dealer and they check my VIN # and no recall needed for my car.

Thank you ... everyone!
After reading the threads regarding the clutch bolt recall, I started wondering if I bought the right "toy". Hearing from many of you has relieved my concerned.
Can't wait to get on the trails!

Glad you can look at the whole picture. Any NEW vehicle, no matter if its a riding lawn mower or 105,000$ Audi A8, first year productions have issues, or a few snags. In my experience, the manufacturing company tends to go the extra mile to keep people happy. The problems will be addressed by Can Am. The only thing standing between you and the manufacturer is your dealer. As long as your dealer is reputable and gives a [email protected]$ about you, you will be fine in the end. I am pretty partial to a product once it has proven itself. I have a Commander 1000XT I bought in 2011, and it has never seen the dealers doors since, it has been nothing but great. Expecting the new Maverick X RS will treat me and my family the same! Get some pics up when you take delivery!!

Over 400 miles, 0 issues. But I'm tired of waiting for the other shoe to drop, so I ordered an Airdam clutch today.

Nothing yet, but I'm only at 50 miles! The only thing I have done was to get a DEI starter motor heat shield wrap from Autozone and I wrapped the cup holder so the beer would not heat up so fast! And if the exhaust melts a bushing, I would prolly just get a little header wrap and isolate the heat.. Gonna do that tomorrow now that I know its a problem.

I would suggest not doing the complete exhaust... Its awesome for keeping the heat down, but if you get it in the water it will trap in moisture in and it can cause premature rust and failure...
