heres a pic I seen of one with long travel already done...


still needs a aftermarket cage and bumper and some minor cosmetic stuff but not bad for a factory effort outta the box.
looks like a rzrS on steroids
IF its reliable will be the big question this first year....look at the kitty

If you live in Vegas and need a General Contractor...call Manning Construction @ 497-5127

the cage looks good to me only needs some heated jet trim seats and a good sand style lt kit with 20" or more rear travel

that thing is sick, they should not have any problems with the motor same thing as what they have always had just a different crank and longer stroke.
not sure if all the computer control is a good thing tho. its got a standard and a sport setting switch on the fly computer to make more reponse and snapier on the throttle.
real curious to see how it performs against a 912. and see what they did to the clutching.

Info from a friend of mine

he new Commander is 58.5 inches wide. Not much different from the XTZ, and the Can Am's wheelbase is only .78 inches different than the XTZ's. Height is 72 inches on the Cammander with the seats lower, so there is a good point for them.

Overall, the XTZ will hold it's own in most areas except acceration as the CA is geared to reach only a top speed of 70mph, but it does it quicker than the XTZ.

What I don't like about the CA is it's cheesy plastic. It looks and feels much like a toy. The side panels are single thickness around the op compartment and it just seems flimsy. It does weigh 50lbs less than the XTZ and carries 2 more gallons of fuel.

Here's the biggie, Can Am is made in Mexico. The Rotax motors which used to be made in Austria, are now being over 85% produced in Mexico according to the last press release I've seen.

I think this machine will be a RZR-S killer, but just wait for what Arctic Cat has planned...The AC 951cc motor has so much untapped potential in power while the CA 976cc motor is a stroked 800R motor. And the 800R motor is well known for being already pushed to it's limits.

If you were climbing rocks in Moab that the Visco-Lock won't touch. I've had quite a bit of experience with visco-lock and hate it. It works AFTER the tire starts spinning while the manual diff lock on our ACs locks when we lock it.
