You are assuming the quality will be better.  That is yet to be seen.  

The quality was not the issue.  It is the material they choose to use for the frame that became the issue.    Frame did not crack at the welds.  It broke in a place that would be considered an anomaly.    I am not scared to share my experience.   I sure hope you Speed UTV owners will be "open and honest" about the issues that arise because there will be issues.  

I made out just fine with the old ride and got lots of use out of it.  Had I been like a majority of owners and just put maybe 1000 miles on it over 3 years I would still be driving it.  LOL!

 

 

Did you ever wonder why nobody else is using that steel for their UTV chassis? If it was the right choice, everyone would be using it.

I think a lot of Speed owners will be honest about what they get. I will be, and my frame of reference is the TIG welded chromo chassis of my sand rail. 

I do agree, you do get a lot more mileage per year than most people I know, certainly more than I do. Hopefully I'll do more trail riding, etc once I get the Speed.

Don't say it...

:lol:

Can Am likes to use weird stuff.  The dual phase steel might work perfectly fine if they used a thicker wall material.   2022 they allegedly went to thicker wall material, but it does not appear to be for the entire frame.

I would have Ed do it. Had Shock Therapy do my '19. I have an appointment Thanksgiving morning, but I'm going to G Friday and supposed to leave Tuesday (2 days before Thanksgiving).. family will all bail, so not sure I want to be in Glamis alone for 2 days.. I'd get there in the morning, it would be done by noon or so and I'd barely make turkey dinner.. probably going to reschedule.

I'm satisfied with the work they did on the '19.

how much of a difference does the shock work make on the velocity? if you are doing it again for the new one i would think its worth it.

It was a marked improvement from stock… I will definitely be doing it on the new one immediately.

Stock it was practically ‘undrivable’ if you go at a good clip IMO.

Yep, way less expensive pounding on a keyboard being the resident expert on everything under the sun than it is to go out and burn fuel, pay for insurance etc...

Yee Haw!!… the orange is growing on me. Seats, stiching on the steering wheel.

Had a great time meeting MGMFRP. Solid dude. We have a lot in common.
 

Guess I need to photo and advertise the 1110cc.

Totally stoked.. if I had to add ONE thing mandatory for a SXS.. it would be the cage.. so thankfully that’s done.

Dude’s been around .. knows his sh__.

Gonna get the goodies included installed and then the dome light, Parker Pumper, rugged race radios… light bar… etc…. like he said 1 mile on it.

So awesome… came with paddles..

Wouldn’t have happened as easily and smoothly without the GD.com community.

That’s for real yo…

Nice to finally meet ABC in the flesh!!    One of the easiest transactions I have ever done.  I probably should have kept the rzr,  but I think I need something with 4 seats this season.  The wife actually said she would go with me!!    I don't know if that is a good thing or not!!
