I'm heading in this week to order a 2015 XMR 800, I'm considering the following accesories and wondering what your guys thoughts are on what I've picked?

BRP Pro Taper Bar
BRP Yellow & Black Wind Deflectors
BRP Aluminum Wrap Around Mounts For The Deflectors
BRP Hand & Thumb Warmers
BRP XT Rear Bumper
BRP Heavy Duty Maverick 1000 XMR CVT Belt
BRP Fox Podium Shocks
BRP Trailering Cover
Warn Synthetic Rope Kit
3 Year Extended Warranty



I've noticed from members two things go wrong on the new 800 XMR, the front shocks and the belt, so I am hoping both those accessories cure the problem. I'm not interested in going aftermarket with parts, I'd like to get it all installed from day 1 and financed in the OTD pricing.

What do you guys think?

All I run is Maverick belts, I haven't heard much on the Outlander 800 shocks but Elka's are a fine replacement.

How much did the Elka stage 1's cost you?

In (US) Funds. So 1,2xx.xx in Canadian, plus taxes/border fees and shipping to canada. They are easily double what the BRP Fox Podiums will cost. That's the biggest issue right now in Canada is buying US parts are expensive. This is the reason I am buying all my parts from the BRP catalog.

Thanks for the feedback, my riding partner has a 2015 Digital Camo XMR 1000 and we also put a Maverick Belt in his bike right away, hasn't had an issue, and that's with stock clutching.

By the time you buy all those things, you may be out more money than if you just bought the 1000 XMR with all that already on there. And you would be getting 82 Hp with 1000 on too! ...Also the shocks that come on the 1000 will be better that the BRP Fox shocks (non X package)...

Reviewing this thread it clearly shows that the kit relocates the CVT intake and Air box intake, only the CVT exhaust exits out the side of the pod. Is this not the same snorkel BRP sells?
Thats the full snorkel kit for the outlanders, the riser kit for the xmr is air intake only

I drove the 1000 XMR, I didn't like it. To me the bike is to heavy, too long and not maneuverable as the short G2 chassis. The Podium-X shocks though were amazing for sure, but $1,500 for shocks on a mud bike is way to much money to spend.
I'm hardly costing the same as a 1,000XMR, I'm adding about $1,051 dollars of accessories the XMR 1000 already has. The XMR 1000 is $2200 more then the 800 XMR.

So I removed the BRP XMR Snorkel, Fox Podium Shocks and XMR/XTP 1000 Gauges from the list. I added the Warn Synthetic Rope Kit, BRP Trailering Cover, and 3 year extended warranty.

I think what I will do is add the Elka's later on, the same can be said for any clutching upgrades.

I've had the 1000 for 2 weeks i don't like it much...takes a weekend to turn , heavy as hell, front shocks are weak, it runs hot the fan kicks on while cruising down a dirt road at 1/4 throttle. tires don't get any traction on hard surface. i should have went with the 800 or a renegade 1k but my testosterone told me to get the biggest one:th_smiliefrustrated

Depending on what they are charging you for the warn synth winch cable, you might want to beat on the dealer. The list on BRP website shows $114 and it's $64 on Amazon $60 or so for Amsteel. I know my dealer only goes %20 off list usually.
