Can Am Commander ride -

At our ATV Outlaw Jamboree in Eagar Arizona I had a chance to drive the new Commander. It is a very nice machine. That being said, for the money I'd stick with my Trooper.

The Commander did have many good things, like lots of power, good brakes and nice fit and finish, it did have some things on the down side. For tight rocky mountain trails, like those found in the Arizona White Mountains it's size and weight become a con, (not unlike the Trooper, having the same problem). The longer wheel base is a real problem with some of the high water bars on our trails. When the RZRs are high centering you know you are in trouble. Overall I didn't feel it has as good a ride as my Trooper. Maybe because it was brand new.

When I asked to drive the 1000X with the Fox Shocks, rather than just tell me it wasn't available, the rep told me it had blown a seal? (must not have been a sales rep).

If you have LOTS of $$ and want to be the first kid on the block with the new toy, I'm sure you can't go far wrong.

Disclaimer: This opinion and $1.00 will get you cup of coffee (senior cup) at McDonalds.

I just wonder how it would do head to head with a trooper.Or should I have said how the trooper would do head to head with the commander.

The Trooper won't stand a chance especially against the X. Power to weight ratio is better than the Troopers and the trans gearing of the Trooper doesn't lend itself to drag racing. Looks like a great machine and maybe a source of parts in the future, maybe the diffs.

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.

      Soo for my second problem lol, 2009 trooper 1100 5 speed , will not engage 5th gear , all others work fine but seems like 5th doesn't engage completely and wont grab the gear. Any idea on where to start looking for issues, or what to look for in regards to linkage.

      So my rear diff lock cable is seized on a 2009 trooper 1100 T2 . How do i remove the end that goes into the diff ? 
    • By Neil Wilson
      I just bought a 2008 Trooper T2 not knowing much about them. On this one the owner said the horn doesn't work, the winch never did work and during inspection the rear brake lights didn't work. He said he replaced the rear light pods recently and the brake lights worked before. He said the fuse module is corroded so he bypassed it and rigged up his own switches for the fuel pump and radiator fan. I see in the wiring diagram the horn and rear brake lights are on the same circuit. Now I am worried the problem is in the wiring harness.
      I have the wiring diagram from the online manual but I can't make any sense of it. I see lots of posts about wiring issues and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the issues I see with these machines and am regretting buying it.
      For now my main concern is to get the brake lights working so I can drive it to some nearby trails. I would appreciate any advice on how to go about diagnosing the problem or workarounds. Also if there is a better wiring diagram out there that might help. I would consider hiring someone local to diagnose it so any recommendations are welcome.
      TIA.
