I had the chance to ride a 2012 BF 750 it was very nice but I have never been on a can-am. The guy with the BF 750 sold his Can-am and went back to the Kawas. I just know what he told me. With the Can-am he said if the battery died you have to take it in for service to be reprogrammed before you can start it after replacing or charging the battery. I don't know if that is true or not. Some Can-am owners need to jump in here. For showing off Can-am may be the brand to buy. The guy did say the Can-am was the faster of the 2 quads just less trouble out of the BF 750. Try them both out and while your looking don't skip the other brands.

I owned both a can am 800 commander and a Teryx 750. They both are capable but I think the can am is more for trail riding.

The teryx was great for the rough spots on the trail, while the commander needs to engage its clutch and then shift down to crawl, plus you can lock the front diff. The commander wins as far as comfort, speed, and handling.

If you get a can am 1000 be prepared to mess with the clutching, either the commander or outlander.

As for SXS or quad I also own two arctic cats besides the side by side and the handling on a quad is way different that a SXS. If you are looking for the fun factor an ATV might be for you. But if you are working the Quad hard a SXS might be a good choice because of the bed room and being able to take another passenger.

Yeah I thought both and 800 commander and a 750 or 850 atv. I just want the sxs so I can just cruise around the trails and have a stereo in it and use the bed for work. And the atv to go fast or to get into those little bit more difficult food plots to access :). But It is going to be a while b4 I can get either thanks guys. Anyone else that wants to post keep going I'd like to learn more

The only thing I have to add is once you get some seat time in on a SXS you will be ammazed at where you can fit it. The ATVs are more fun to ride in my opinion.

I had a Kawasaki and I liked it. Some guys talked about the ride in the Can Am so I went out and purchased one. Brother was that a mistake. Nothing but issues since I bought it. This bike definitely gotta go. Back to Kawasaki for me. Still aint figured out why I listen to others talking about bike, especially since ive tried most of them and I still come back to the Kawi.

I've test driven most of the brands and found the can am more to my liking. From the Can Am perspective, it has a 12" clearance which is nice for logging road trails and riding, plus it rides well on the Max which is their two up machine.

If you can, try them out on trails and see which suits your riding style best. Everyone is different in how they ride of course :)

      x   just bought this expedition 425 and the Speedo needle does not work. The lights work for the shift indcator. So is this an electronic Speedo or cable? Is there a way to fix it or will I have to replace the unit? Thanks for any help you can provide.

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?
