I find that the 500 Outlanders do not get the attention they deserve. 400/650/800 make all the news and reviews and the lonely old 500 just sits there. Lets not forget that the 400 to 500 class atv's are the largest segment out there. So with that said BRP should up the bar on the 500 and put some work into it and come back to use with a class leader. With Yamaha's new 550 with power steering and PoPo's new 550 the Outlander is sure to fall to the back of the class.

rob500xt, welcome aboard. :wavy:

The 500 doesn't get much attention does it? I think it is because there aren't many issues with it. My wife rides a 500, I think I had it to the dealer twice. My 800, I've stopped counting.........

I'm gonna guess that the Outy 500 smokes the 550's in a race? :shrug:

In the back of my mind I think sometimes, I should have gotten the 500.

I would pic the Outy 500 over anything in the 500,650,700 class of machines period. Its the only silky smooth v-twin other than the Kawi 650s, it has all the fearure of the 800s except a-arms that I don't think if you ride one you would even miss them, and the power of the 800s. The 500 Outy would smoke a 680 Rincon and hold its own with the other 700 class machines. I convinced Its really a class leader, its just under marketed compared to the others.

Thanks for all the replies.......

I regret getting the max in the 500 class, should of got the 650. My original atv choice was the 500 xt and not the max, but the wife convinced me the 2-up would be great for the family. The sales person told me I would not even notice the extra length.........lies....lies......you do. It is a big, long, heavy, and clunky atv. The non max would have been a better buy for me seeing how I never use the 2-up.

I do love my CAN-AM (and my dealer) and always will be brand loyal but my next quad will come with a little more thought.

Problems to date...........
1. fogged gauge (fixed no problem)
2. missing fuel tank grommet (fixed no problem)
3. low battery light winch issue (no fix have to live with it)
4. hydraulic brake light/neutral safety switch (fixed no problem)
5. gas tank protective cover (scab fix no problem)
6. cvt leak (fixed no problem $50.00 deduct-able)
7. front pinion seal leak (fixed no problem $50.00 deduct-able)

Not one of these problems ever left me stuck or stranded.

I also believe more attention should be put onto the 500. WE where going to buy a 650 Max, but the sales man asked me to take this 500 Max to see what i thought. WOW that's all the power the two of us will ever need. I have races my brother-in-law with his 500 Rincon and just totally left him in the dust. And it very nicely holds it's own against the 600 & 700 cc quads out there.

One thing BRP should do is get ride of struts and replace with control arms.

Since I'm not a speed demon, the 500 MAX XT works fine for me. My Foreman 450 ES had enough power and the MAX has plenty more. I have not been to the mountains yet but, with low range, everything should be fine. I decided riding double in the mountains on a standard ATV was really pushing it.

Gotta go with a Max IMO, specially for 2-up stuff.
