Hey guys, new here and had a question about back end weight on a Polaris RANGER 500 or 1000. I tried calling the dealers and manufacture but all I could get was dry weight.
does anyone know the back end weight of one of these? I’m putting an implement on the receiver and need to know what lb spring to use. If I had one I could back it up on my warehouse scale but am out of luck.
Good morning all,
My name is Bryant and I'm the co-manager of an off road race series here in Texas that provides off road desert and endurance short course style racing for two classes of UTVs.
We offer a stock and a Pro UTV class to allow an opportunity for most every UTV owner to try their hand at desert style racing.
Our courses range from 10 to 100 miles long and races cover multiple laps.
We look forward to having some of you come race with us!
Here is a link to our website where rules can be found along with upcoming events.:
Our goal is to get people out of the stands and onto the course by providing frequent and affordable racing options.
Come on out and #makesomedust!
Valcourt, Quebec/Canada, June 1, 2017 – BRP (TSX: DOO) continues to optimize its Can-Am off-road lineup with multiple changes for 2018. The brand is again setting the bar with the most powerful factory-built side-by-side vehicle on the market, the new 172hp 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R model. The thrilling Rotax ACE engine was reconfigured to deliver a potent 172hp. Additional lineup changes include more options for utility and recreational use, with the introduction of additional specialty packages.
“The 2018 Can-Am lineup reflects the passion and exhilaration we bring to people,” said Anne-Marie LaBerge, BRP's senior VP, Global Brands & Communication. [CP1] “Along with expanding our Maverick X3 and Defender family of off-road vehicles, we have enriched our recreational-utility category Can-Am Commander and Outlander ATV segments with added performance, improved value and more specialty packages. Our expanded list of genuine accessories also adds more convenience and customization levels.”
The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle family continues to make industry-altering headlines with the arrival of the new 172hp 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R model, the most powerful factory-built side-by-side vehicle on the market. The turbocharged 172hp 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R model delivers 12 percent more horsepower and 10 percent added torque. The new flagship super-sport side-by-side vehicle can go from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.
The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side family also now includes a 120hp Maverick X3 Turbo side-by-side. The new market point-of-entry vehicles, offered in two- and four-seat packages come standard with many of the performance features for which the Maverick X3 is known.
To reinforce its influence in the utility-recreation category, the Can-Am Defender vehicle family now includes a market point-of-entry in the crew category with the Defender MAX HD8 package. The new 2018 Defender MAX XT CAB HD10 super model features enhanced ground clearance, arched A-arms, with a greater footprint and an integrated heater system.
The Commander 1000R side-by-side vehicle also received a significant update for 2018, with a performance bump to 92hp, a wider stance and larger brakes for enhanced appeal in the recreational-utility category. The Can-Am Commander 800 side-by-side vehicle has improved value for the new model year.
Can-Am ATVs have long been recognized for their performance, precision-engineered handling and consumer-focused design, and those key pillars have been reinforced for 2018. Inspired by a Can-Am heritage model, the Outlander X xc 1000R ATV makes a triumphant return delivering the true crossover-type Sport-Rec performance.
Powered by either a Rotax V-Twin 650 or Rotax V-Twin 850 engine, the all-new Outlander North Edition ATVs, available in one-up and MAX platforms, also includes an exclusive equipment package for cold weather and a super low L gear for hard work. The Can-Am Outlander Mossy Oak Hunting Edition ATV family now includes three available engine packages, as a new Outlander 450 package joins the existing 570 and 1000R Rotax V-Twin-powered offerings.
