I have been browsing YouTube watching vids of the rzr1k edging out the mavs. Who has raced one and what were your findings? I'm anxious to hit silver lake this year to run against one myself :)

Win or lose I'll never abandon the mav. Another can am forum has a lot of peeps jumping ship to Polaris but I guess that's their prerogative. I'm not the kind of guy to roll with the trendy bike like these other mother loving traitors. Haha

Hopefully my clutch kit will keep me out of the roost, at least for 300'!

dirt or sand with 27'' or smaller dirt tires, u will beat a xp1

they top out at 80 , u have full stm , so what do u seed 70 ? u need mr rpm flash u will gain 5-8 mph

26'' skat on reds is great

The top vid is one that I watched. Looks like in the 1/4 the mav has a slight advantage.
I haven't really ran the STM yet as I just ordered it. :)
According to the speedo I hit 77 mph on asphalt bone stock. I'm hoping I can get more than 70 out of her!
The STM dudes said my top end should be the same as stock but with more bite down low. Is that not the case?

I would love to ride olds hill! Just once.

I'm running a QSC/STM that is installed as it was shipped, it has not been tuned to my bike at all, I ran the xp1k pulled him off the line all the way till mine topped out then he gradually started gaining, I still crossed the finish line ahead of him. in this same race clifsmaverick was racing with us, he has a fully tuned STM/STM and completely stomped the xp's ass, it was not even a race. This happened in a sandy riverbed in Byers Texas. Clifs beat him by at LEAST 5-6 bike lengths. The following weekend the guy with the Xp1 was asked if he wanted to try again and he wanted no part of it.

That's awesome! What were you hitting for top end when the rzr pulled away? Is clifsmaverick stock minus the STM setup?

I need some clutch specs! I looked in their web on clutch and it's so [email protected]@n confusing.whats your set up?
When I ordered mine the dude walked me through it all. If ya want one I'd call and have them do the same. There were like 100 different helix options weights and more. I was clueless.

Do you have the rage 6? Got her dialed in? Since we are both in Mi maybe we can compare notes.

Nope. He had a gopro but it was pointed straight ahead. It was darn near dead even the whole way down.

I ran one today in my demo machine. Mine was bone stock with 1.2 hours. Pulled a 1/4 car on him.
That's awesome. Was it on dirt? The vids I've seen show the Mav staying slightly ahead of the xp1. Asphalt not so much.
