Don't know if you know this but the connection from the steering column to the rack and pinion isn't the tie rod or the a arm. Sorry I don't buy it, what makes it even less believable that it was connected to this recall is that Can Am didn't warranty it.

This would be like the Rzr 1000 that got caught in the stream in the other thread taking it back to the dealer and saying they don't know why it won't start, we were just driving it around on dry ground. WHAT! there's water in the oil how'd that get there!

That's was a recall on the rack and pinion box on earlier models.had squat to do with a broke tie rod and a arm.

Maybe it happened before the recall. Maybe can am saw the cases and then decided to do the recall. Because i saw several cases of this happening on can am forum when i google searched it. Maybe the steering column or rack and pinion failure caused the problem and other issues but yall just straight out judge and basically called that person a lair without all the info.

Or the recall issues cause a wreck that damaged the other stuff and the person had to pay for it out of pocket when he thought it would all be covered. Steering column failure or rack and pinion failure can cause a wreck and break tie rod and A arms. That might of happened right? And he had to pay for them things. IDK but it's not right to just call BS when yall don't know full story.

With all the frame problems can am has had over the years I can believe something like this could happen. Can am has been working out the issues for years on the wheelers to hold up to the power the Rotax is putting out. Like skizzy said, maybe he got a lemon.


Anyway.... back on topic guys..

However i am married been married for 22 years now and up until i bought my Pioneer when i went riding it was just with my boys and i wanted the wife to be able to participate so we together got a pioneer plus i can use it around the house. Most of you married guys know if mama isnt happy no one is happy. Kind of got off track a friend of mine just moved up here where i am he is 26 and guess what he wanted you guessed it speed he rode my pioneer but he went with a 2012 Commander i went with him to pick it up from the guy to help him check it out. It is fast and he got a limited with all the goodies there are things i like about it but am happy with what i have and he is happy with what he has we cant wait to get the wives out there and enjoy them. I will be taking the GO pro when we go may get some interesting video. I also wanted to say i had 3 people cooler of ice and drinks on my recent trail ride and had no problems climbing.

not sure why people gripe about the belt
Because they are a pain.. Get wet, slip, smoke and all that.

With all the power them SxS's have it does seem like a belt would be a weak link. Really does seem like them brand would change it after all these years of same issues. Like people say honda does old technology and all. I haven't had a belt drive since 1998 tho. But i do see the smoking and slipping issues out on the trails.
