Canam Maverick or Wildcat X, which one and why? Reliability? Looking to buy one soon.


Recommended Posts

I just got a MAV.. Stupid power!.. love the thing... The wildcat looks a bit weird to me...I have seen Wildcats with suspension kits handle a little better on the whoops but it has to be modified. I hear in a side by side comparison the the MAV has better fit and finish but I have never seen a Wildcat in person... this is one of those things that your gonna get lovers and haters on both sides... Do yourself a favor.. Go to the dealership and climb all around both...

Thanks Myron. I have driven both in a small area and agree the Mav feels much more comfortable but the Cat brought a bigger grin to my face. The dealer had me hit a drainage ditch (probably about 2ft deep) coming from the street and heading into a field in the cat. It was very impressive. I felt more stable in the Cat and felt like for my style of driving I could be a little more daring in it. Both are great and it was hard to gauge power differences. Although the Mav was incredibly comfortable I opted to order the Cat. If I need to change out the seats its not that big a deal. Wish I could have them both but I know you can"t go wrong with either. Have fun and be safe.

      Hello all,
      Was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good two way communication headset. It's too loud in my Razr to easily have a conversation with the wife, and want to go the headset route to help with that and reduce cockpit noise.
      Thanks!

      The middle two tires on 6x6 are spinning. the drive shaft from middle to rear is spinning and the shaft from middle to front is spinning. I have the entire thing jacked up. When I first start it both middle tires will spin and the front two will spin for about 10 seconds. the rear tires do nothing. I can spin the rears wheels both forward or backwards at same time or one forward and one backward and vise versa. Is this normal. Do I have a rear differential broke or is something not engaging the shaft to the gears in the back. Would somebody please tell me how all the drive system works together so I can find something to fix of replace.

      My 2013 500 will only start if I floor the gas pedal and then once it starts I have to pump the gas until it warms up a little it sounds horrible until it warms up.(around 20 seconds)and then it will stay running. The exhaust smells like raw gas for a little while. The throttle body has been changed. Someone suggested the mass air flow sensor could be the problem ( is that the MAP). It has been to 2 different shops with it not being fixed. I haven't been able to ride it since last fall.

      Does anyone have any suggestions?

      I have a 2018 cub cadet challenger 750 I bought brand new almost 2 years ago the first month I had it the exhaust broke and burnt the spark plug wire in two that was a recall so the dealership installed the new one it had a different design and it bolted up to the bottom two plugs below the spark plug the dealership said they had to Adjust the exhaust valves I get the machine back thanking everything is good now wrong not even a week after I get it back the timing chain tensioner comes apart inside the motor I take it back to the dealership They put one on I get the machine back thanking everything is good but then just like before not even a week goes by when I was riding the Machine automatically quits going come to find out the wet clutch was burned up the primary clutch head stripped off of the splines I get that fixed and then  it overheats I take it back they bleed the air out of the coolant they bring it back to me the same day that I get it back it overheats again I take it back they temporarily fix it again just enough to let the warranty run out and now the machine has been to multiple different mechanics I have had them try to bleed the air out they have stood it up on its end I have had the water pump changed I have had the fan hooked to a switch so I could leave it on all the time but still almost 2 years later not even 200 hours on the machine and I cannot ride it The dealership will not take it back as a lemon I have tried I am at my wits end I have no clue what to try next

      I have a BMS Stallion and it has started to freewheel going downhill. Is the normal or do I have a problem? Thanks
