I’m shopping around at two local dealers for its replacement as we speak…. 2015 Can-Am XMR 800. Finally the XMR comes in the G2 chassis which I’m super excited about. Geared 15% Lower this year, Commander Rear Differential, Upgraded Axle Shafts(Holly Beasty Units), and standard shocks instead of the air ride. I think Can-Am finally got it right this year with this chassis so I’m jumping onboard. So far I have had the chance to do some riding with a 2014 Outlander 800 XT and a 2015 Outlander 1000 XMR.
The question begs, when will Polaris come out with a High lifter edition Sportsman 1000? After losing a lot of money in modding my 800 I decided its best just to buy one that is already built and warrantied! I could buy an 850 or 1000 Sportsman, but I don’t have the ambition to do Wheels/Tires, Clutch kit, Axles, Front Diff Fix, Lift, Rad Relocate and Snorkels… It would be way more expensive then the XMR.
Anyone else feel this way?
