I am considering a new Can Am Mav. xrs and I am seeing kinda everywhere that there is some axle breakage issues and also that QE is becoming standard in 2014 but I don't see this confirmed on the Can Am site. Do we know for sure if both of these items are being addressed in 2014 sometime. I have saw the costs to repair a broken axle deal and I don't want to have to retrofit both of my rear axles at can am parts prices by buying a new machine before this is addressed. I ride HARD !! and if it can be broke I'm gonna do it. I gotta wait to pull the trigger until I know whats what. Plus who know what might be available in the near future from Can Am in the power wars.

I would say quite the opposite. My 2013 Mav 1000R has a factory axle saver feature that cuts power while you are in the air. It can be a bit annoying when you are jumping and are throttling up the face of a jump. Or going through a whoops section. There are 3rd party companies that make a bypass kit.

the 14 max XRS MODEL has power steering and is a power animal, a rocket. as to broken axles, nothing to worry about, sure you can scan thru the forums of any board and find a few on all brands. a lot of times if you trace back issues that get blown up it leads to a troll looking to down grade a brand, nothing more. if it hqppens under 1% its not something to worry about in general. im sure we all face a 1% chance of getting in a wreck in our car everytime we go out.
