Has the Can-Am Got respect yet?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if the Can Am is still the unwanted stepchild in the ATV world ? I saw good and bad for all ATV makes. The Can -Am is no different. Just wondering if it has gotten more popular yet!! :wink:

I think price still hurts them some. Lack of dealerships does not help. After riding an 800 Renagade , I think they need to spend less on adds and more on fine tuning it for the everyday rider. It was awesome going straight , but was lacking in the turning department. Over all I think they are on par with the competition.

I think it is the price and the attitude of most Can Am owners that make them the black sheep. SOME Can Am owners are the most arrognat pricks around.

Wow, things I guess with some has not changed much.

The Can-Am did not get much flack or their owners until BRP changed the name and started a major advertising campaign. I thought by now most would have grown out of it after several years had passed. Arrogance a strong word but could be used also towards the statement or statements that had been made time after time on this site and a few other sites by other Brand users.

I have not put a thread on here in a long time and was just testing the waters for a Can-Am Rider on this site. Stoopipbot you once said "Hey all them post are jut in fun, don't take em seriously on this site or ATV Fan. So I never take you Seriously !!The problem is some of the Can-Am /BRP users may. I think we are all proud of what we ride and think its great that some are fanatics about their Quads! LOL! So are we the BRP Can-Am Owners/Ryders .

Buck Billy , I liked your comments about the handling on the 800. Not sure if they can Tame it though yet because of all that Power is why it is so hard to handle it. I would disagree with the Advertising though . One, because it is not that easy and their sales would fall off and sell less due to the premium price they are asking. They need to advertise like they do. 2ND I think that all the Advertising they do is a great help in the the ATV world in promoting the Sport . They are dumping allot of $ everywhere and it really does help support all of those trying to make a living at this Sport which in-turn in the long run keeps cost down for others by not sacrificing funds they could spend elsewhere to improve their Quads.

I own a small business and I too gain from my competitors Advertising all the time.

Sorry this turned into a Blog , but I thinks its time that Riders out there stop attacking other Quads especially the BRP riders cause they do contribute allot more than we all know.

That is why I capitalized the word some. Not all of them are. The fact is they make great machines. I have ran inot lots of owners on the trails that are just rediculous. It doesn't matter if my quad goes through the same stuff they did, theirs is still better because it did it like this.... BLAH BLAH

The short time I was on QuadCrazy I have noticed everyone has been welcoming for the most part. I love to come online and see what is new here. Most will not treat you differently because of what ATV you ride. If you have respect for the site and those on it then they will return the same respect. I think that is true with any forum.

Now I can never understand brand bashing. I think it is mainly due to the brand loyal guys getting upset when another manufacturer comes out with a better ATV than their brand. I constantly hear this on the trail and it gets annoying fast. The funny part is that the guys that brag the most are the ones I am pulling back to the trailer at the end of the day. Each manufacturer has their good points and bad.

Heck...we have a forum moderator named Outlander...How much Can-Am/BRP friendlier can we get....:wink:

QUADCRAZY is different than other sites and would not put it in the same category. Pretty much, everyone here is nice, normal, and friendly. At least that's my opinion.

I agree, this site is pretty much free of brand bashing. I have the most out of date 450 sport quad available. I will never switch from Honda(unless it's a KTM) but I will not bash another brand. i will give my opinion on a certain model and I will explain why I dislike or like that quad.

You treat me with respect and i will do the same without hesitation.

I will tell you one thing.....can-am/bombardier has definitely earned my respect. I have always been a kawi/suzuki guy and i just recently picked up my first bombardier (ds 650). This has been by far the most reliable quad I've had. The engine is bulletproof and has plenty of balls. I was a little shaky at first about getting a bombardier due to lack of dealerships and lack of aftermarket parts for a 2000-2001 ds 650's. After riding the bike a few times those downfalls dont really matter to me anymore. The bike is awesome and is much better in the trails than I thought it would be. Definitely would recommend the ds 650 to any experienced rider that feels squished on any other bike.

      Im rick, and im new here. I just got a Bayou 220 for $125. It locks up after a few rounds, Im pulling the motor now to see wtf. It didnt rattle or knock when it fires a few short times and it cranks and cranks with the starter before it locked up again. Ill know more tonight, but I actually bought it for the wheels to upgrade a G1 golf cart but if I can fix it, Ill keep it a bike, otherwise it gets cut up and merged with a golf cart. I have a larger bayou rear axle merging with a honda shadow vtwin 1100cc shaft drive bike and and yamaha golf cart. I am building "Frank" or "Frankie" the monster cart with around 10 to 12 inch and 26's. I like building modified toys especially when its done and it works, and doesnt cost me a fortune! lol I can weld and all that crap, been a mechanic all my life, I fix shit!! Im just disabled now and not as pliable as I was 20 years ago. I still fix shit, just takes me longer now with health and age, and Im on a low budget now. Good thing I have tools to do things myself or I'd be forced to be a couch potato. Anyway, thanks for letting me join. I have already read lots of cool threads and cant wait to show more pics of my progress

      Hello there, i am wanting to know, what would be a good 4 wheeler with a manual transmission?  Either a real manual with a clutch, or a semi automatic transmission. Either 2 or 4WD will do.  What i do want is one that has a rack at each end and can pull a small trailer.   So what are your suggestions? I am open to most any brand though Linhai is the only one from China i would buy.    
         So far it looks like Arctic Cat is overwhelmingly what fits what i'm looking for, but like i said, i'm open to almost any make. If there is any rivalry over brands count me out, i like them all.   What i do want is one that will last through farm use, hauling feed sacks and so forth.

      I have a 2017 can am 570 outlander max that is having issues with the powersteering going out and the speedo quits working. anyone else having or heard of these issues?  everything else on the display cluster is working and I hear no noises as far as the powersteering unit, the dealer did change the steering unit because of the recall.

      Put this short video together using part of several video's I've already uploaded in the past. But this time I've changed some things up try'in to make it more interesting.
      This is actually like three video's in one. The first section shows some photo's & I used the sound track I used on another video that looks a like this one.
      The middle section, also uses the same tunes in a like video, however, I've changed a few of the clips and sequences up.
      The final second of video's I changed the tune to a fun time playful type tune which makes me laugh every time I watch it.
      Now, the video on Youtube is blocked in Germany, so I've added a Vimeo link if there are any members from that country or if anyone has a problem watch'in the Youtuber version.
      Make sure you watch it in 1080p on Youtube & Vimeo shows it in HD automatically.
      Hope you all enjoy it !!
