Just happened to find a Can-Am BRP dealer in town, so you know I had to check it out! They only had Outlanders, and some Jet skis, and you better believe they weren't cheap. I don't think that just over 28,000 USD for an Outlander is a good deal! After chatting with the sales people, they let me know that they had only sold two of the quads so far. They had no idea where someone could ride them and since there are not too many pickups or trailers, there is no way to get them from one place to another without hiring a rollback truck. Seems like a little too much trouble for me.

It is their import taxes that make things so expensive, anything that is imported is a "Luxury Item" so it is taxed anywhere from 25 to 100% of the purchase price, like the ATV's they are taxed at 100% of the Import price. Its the same with other items, cars like Mercedes, BMW, and motorcycles like Ducati, or Harley Davidson are usually taxed an extra 50% of the purchase price. It promotes buying cars and motorcycles made in China, and keeps their manufacturers competitive with foreign manufacturers. If the US would do that, we might still make things like TV's, and Iphones here.

Nah, it just has the 100% luxury tax applied to the price. 175000 CNY~28,000 USD, so its a $14,000 USD quad, being taxed until its double the American MSRP. Its actually a good way to keep production based inside of China, and to give Chinese manufacturers an advantage over foreign companies trying to import their products into China. Its what the US should be doing, but we aren't.

      Headlights on my Outlander 570 are junk.  Would like to upgrade to a light bar.  What is the max size (wattage) that it can handle? 
      Can I just split into the high beam wire for an install.  I see YouTube videos of a separate switch that hooks up straight to the battery, but wouldn't that drain the battery if the machine is off and lights cold be left on by accident.
      I'd like to hang it from the front rack as I have a basket installed on the rack that I would like to keep there.  If anyone has done this, please send a picture!

      I just bought this thing and got the carb all cleaned today and it was running like a champ. There was a spare hot wire hanging down that was not hooked up to anything. I found it when I took all the covers off and did the carb work. Unfortunately I forgot it as well when I fired her up after cleaning and replacing the carb. While I was running her, the wire was lying across the exhaust pipe. The exhaust got hot, melted the insulation and next thing I know I see sparks flying everywhere Bike immediately shut down and all lights went off. I have nothing on the console now when I turn the key over. I fear I have fried my ECU. I found one fuse back by the box, a 30 amp, but it was good. Are there any other fuses on these things? Is there a way to test the ECU? Could it be the rectifier or voltage regulator?
