Weird how different we all are. I don't like how low my low is in my 2019 xmr. I came from a wolverine r spec. I could run trail all day in low. Could cruise at 30. Without feeling stressing engine. Xmr in low seems like it's for crawling only.
Not sure about the gear reduction. Other guys on here said the parts are the same in xmr transmission. Only change is clutchingvtalen it would be different if you had an OG maverick like the OP. your newer machine has a 40% gear reduction over the OPs original maverick. Big BIG difference in gearing and crawl'ability.
OP. the factory can-am gears are 14%
the 17% are advertised by SATV but i dont exactly know how they mathematically calculated 17% because changing one tooth count on the can-am nets a 7% change in overall gear ratio. so mathematically, you guessed it, multiples of 7. 7, 14, 21, 28, 35.... i dont get how they could possible have been able to achieve a 17% reduction but either way whether you get the OEM can-am parts of the SATV parts, yes the gearing is a noticable improvement.
