Hey everyone. Just joined and super excited. Picked up my 2015 outty 1000xt couple weeks ago. Previously owned an 07 grizz 700 with a few clutch mods. Absolutely loved that machine but simply put..... it's no can am. I am loving this power baby!!! Lol forward to posting vids and photos.

Hey fellas! So I'm one of those riders that can't help but be bothered by noises I hear while riding. Coming from a grizz first thing I noticed was the sound of the machine. Much different from the grizz. I'm starting to read up on standard problems with the outlander and I'm really only seeing things about riding in high gear or low gear. With my grizz I never really payed attention to that. Always high gear unless towing something. Are the can am clutch different. Do I need to be switching from high to low more often with this Machine. I certainly don't want to fry my belt. Love your opinions! Thanks guys!!!

The clutches are definitely wayyyy different and unfortunately inferior in some ways. You'll definitely want to be in low gear any time you are pulling a load, going through sticky mud or uphill and it isn't a bad idea to have it in low if you're going to be going under 25-30mph.

I understand using low range while towing and going through holes but I just don't want to be always concerned about what gear I'm in on my everyday runs. I mean sometimes I may be running under 30km/h but it won't be long before I snap that throttle.

It's not like you'll hurt anything if you're in high on stock tires. You just have to be a little more thoughtful.

Stock size is what I should have said. If you have big mud tires like me you'll never see high gear.

Well that gives me a little more insight into my concerns. So all you guys with aftermarket tires clutches lifts and stuff rarely if ever use high gear! I would not have guessed that. So if I just ride the way I rode my grizzly I should be fine. Really appreciate the help. That's why I sighed up here. Thanks

Thx for the clarification, will riding in low potentially damage the tranny long term??
