Hi,

First post here.

Trying to purchase a 2015 Outlander Max XT w/ Tracks, skid plates and rear trunk...the big one.
My dealer has salesmen who work on no commish. They are the slowest, most unmotivated salespeople I've ever seen. I thought it would be a breeze to spend $21000, but it's been a nightmare. Finance guy off for 2 days, salesman off for 2 days, credit app. left in limbo, no call backs...etc, etc,
and this was the second salesman I dealt with, the first was worse.
Anyways...a couple of things I was told, I would like to confirm with the great minds here...just so I know whether or not I've been fed the poopy-da-poop-poop

Questions:

1) After mentioning Pines (PPSM) checking every rear diff they uncrate, would the be willing to do the same?

Answer from dealer: "Bikes assembles after November 2014 have been upgraded to a more solid diff....prob solved

True of False??

2) Dealer quoted 10hrs for skid plate install??

True of False??

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for having me,

John

I have a 14 800 XT Max with Tatou 4s, skids, and rear Trunk, all camo. I had my rear dif replaced the end of Nov. We, the Tech and I, took them apart, they didnt look any different. The tech told me that he takes the new ones apart and checks the gear lash and ajusts if needed. The new one we put in mine, we adjusted. My oringinal was just noisy. Still working fine. Not sure on the time for skids. I ordered my skids from a guy in Wisconsin, he is on the forums somewhere, and ebay, cant think of his name. He makes the thick plastic ones. I know it didnt take 10hrs to put them on. I did alot of modifying to my skids though because I wanted to leave all my track mounting hardware on the ATV. Skid plates and track mounting hardware dont mix. Maybe thats why they quoted 10hrs. I would look into it though and ask about what is needed to switch out the tracks. I can now switch from tracks to wheels or wheels to tracks in about 35-45 min, I torque my lug bolts. I dont remove my skid plates, they stay on all year, along with all my track mounting plates. I also have a front receiver hitch and a Alpine flex plow. The plow does not fit with the front receiver, so that also had to be modified to work with the plow. The trunk works good so far, its the 32gallon one I think with the linq system. I used it alot for Ice fishing. I had issues with my dealer also when it came to adding attachments, that why I deceided to just do it myself, then it was done right and how I wanted it. I had the DPS overheat 2 times this winter, but I was going very slow and no snow, it was on max, otherwise it was good with the tracks. Good luck.

Diff upgrade is total B.S. same old same old.
I installed my BRP skids in less than 4 hrs with bike hanging by winch cable out in my yard.

I see only bad service and more outright lies in your future with them.
If you haven't bought the bike yet run like hell.

Thanks guys.
The dealer called this morning and said I was approved for financing, and the bike was ordered (dealer transfer)
I was thinking of backing out, but may be too late now.
Will call them out on their b.s. when I go to sign.

I wonder if the Can Am skids allow for the plow mount. I was planning on getting one for next winter...which is really the reason I wanted a quad in the first place...then after watching Ostacruiser, plowing seemed to get pushed further out of the picture.

Hopefully I'm just a little nit-picky, and the dealer turns out ok.

Time will tell,

Thanks again!

My skids allow for my plow mount, and I leave my plow mount on all year. Mine is the Alpine Flex 60" with Extensions.

I have the BRP skids on mine, took about 6 hours cuz I wasn't in any particular hurry. Pretty sure any competent mechanic that has done them before should be able to get them on in a lot less time.

However, If I were to do it again, I would go with BalticIron skids, aluminum sticks a bit to snow and grabs rocks like glue.
