A arm

Recommended Posts

I went for a ride yesterday and the top a arm came out of the spindle and pulled the cv apart. Nothing broken just put it back together but check the bolts so it does not happen to you. It does well in the snow as long as its not to deep. I think it might float if I could get 33s under it but they wont fit unfortunately. It did go over hard crusted snow.

I dropped an upper A arm ball joint myself, after studying the way it's put together, I recommend replace the stock bolt with one that has some unthreaded shank on it and grade 8 hardeness. Everyone should at least check the torque on theirs. The ball joint has a notch in the spindle that allows the bolt to pass and should make it unable to come out, but it wallows the threads off and falls out. The longer shank would resist this. While you have it apart, put some good boots on it.

Yes, the picture is of tie rod, but I bet the boots will fit ball joints also, Checker Auto#13566

      I have 2015 can am maverick 1000r xds turbo. It sat for a month and everything was fine when I parked it. I went to start it last weekend and the check engine light popped up and the check DPS code scrolls across the dashboard.

      Hello Folks - newbie here with my first post so go easy on me.  I picked up a Buck 400 in May 2020 direct from Massimo when they were doing a closeout sale on the 400 models.  I read the reviews and was skeptical. 
      We live in a golf cart community  we do not plan any off roading - just some very mild work tasks like hauling firewood / brush etc.  Honestly, all we do is cruise around our neighborhood roads.  I pulled the trigger b/c the price was cheaper than a 2WD lifted golf cart and the Buck  had way more features.
      We have a few steep hills and after about 20 - 30 minutes of cruising, my check engine light comes on.  It only happens when we are going up or down one of the hills .  We head straight home and things seem fine the next day.  Light never comes on unless we tackle multiple hills during one ride.
      Should I be worried?  
      PS - Unit is 4 months old and has 258 miles on it - barely broken in.  I've yet to go full throttle on a flat or up a hill.

      Hello,
      I have a 2018 Dominator LT 1000 and I am wanting to stiffen up the ride.  What is the best way to accomplish this, tighten the recoil spring up or add air to the shock.  I can't find any information on the procedure.  Also, since im asking questions........my top end rpms doesnt seem to be where it should be.  Max RPM is 6100 and usually drops down to 5800 maxed out.  Im just wondering if everyone else has the same experience.
      Thanks,
      Kirk Falk

      Can anyone help me locate the back up siren?  It is so loud it really hurts my ears.  I'd like to be able to disable the noise or at least muffle it.

      We just bought a 2014 Massimo 1100 with only 27 drive hours on it. We took it out a couple of times and then the check engine light came on. We took it to an authorized massimo shop and they can't figure out what's wrong. Any advice?! We are in Utah.
