Thinking about getting one. What are your thoughts on this machine? How is reliability? I will probably put some 29. 5 outlaws on it eventually as I like to play in the mud. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
They are tough.! I Can Honestly say That.! Cause mines is A Stout Machine it's only a 650 just imagine what the 1000 can withstand.!What I'm trying to say Is Keep that fluids clean it'll take you longer in The long Run.!
Ya, I sure wouldn't want an 800 when the 1,000 is offered!
If you aren't going crazy with it, you will be fine. I have 1,500 hard trail miles on my Renegade 1000 XXC and all I really did maintenance wise was replace the rear sway bar bushings and rear brake pads. Those 2 issues are known minor fixes.
I have 1000 hard miles on my bike and a list of worn out parts....
brake pads, control arm bushings, all the rear sway bar bushings and mounts, shock bushings, steering stem spherical bushings, balljoints, tie rods and a radiator fan motor.
I just sold my 2011 800 XTP Outlander week or so ago, never had an issue at all, great machine, now i've got a new 2015 Outlander Max XTP, and all i do is ride them down logging roads, around the yard, etc. I dont go in deep mud holes, so i dont do any of that snorkel stuff. I think i should have great look with my 2015 aswell. I think you'll be very happy.
Im a Yamaha man at heard, always had Yamaha's, still do, i've got a Yamaha Viking side by side. Yamaha has never let me down, but nothing about the Grizzly made me want one, so that's why i tried my first Can-am in 2011, and went back to them when i sold it.
Have a 2015 XMR 1000 and LOVE IT! Have had only one issue with a rear axle from the factory...Having to wait for it to break before dealer will replace it under warranty. Other than that it's been great!
