Unfortuantely, we are all stuck buying an OEM quad of some type. And, let's face it.....no matter how much you love your quad overall, there are things you "accept" because as a package you're satisfied. This explains why there are so many different brands, models, displacements, etc........

So if you could influence the OEM's to build your dream quad, what would it be? What would it incorporate for features, styling, engine size, what-have-you?

Let 'em rip.

Here's mine.

It would be a sport-utility quad. A true sport-utility. It would feature a fuel-injected single cylinder unit with a displacement of 600-700 cc's, would offer power steering (I know you are thinking "Grizz 700" but hold on), sporty Renegade or similar type of styling, utility racks for carrying small loads, would offer a locking differential, would have perfect ergonomics (which the Grizz does not for me), would come with factory 26" or 27" tires (and the drivetrain and clutching to turn them) that wouldn't need to be replaced with something that is actually useable, would have HID type of lighting, would come with a factory winch and decent bumpers, would have an optional 2-up riding platform (like the Max and X2 bikes), and would come with some little creature comforts like 12v outlet, temp guage, oil pressure guage, gas guage, speedometer, tachometer, and MP3 mounting points.

How about you?

Mine would be the Renegade with a manual locker like Kawasaki's that you could engage from a stop or on the go. Or modify the Visco lock with a brake master cylinder or some other small hydraulic pump. So you could add pressure and lock the front end when you needed it to stay locked. Or let the Visco pump lock its self while you don't have the manual pump engaged.

And a winch mount.

Not a Suzuki that's for sure...


I drive a 07 LTD, and with a few minor mods, wouldn't want anything else.

But thats why I joined CAN-AM talk.
Just kidding, this is a great site because of all the varied input
It's only a matter of time before I am overrun by Can-Am owners.


I guess I am to Can-Am Talk what Yamanator is to DooTalk.


But for what it's worth, I like this site, too. It is one of the more mature quad sites I have seen.

Start with the Frame of the Traxter, then add the motor from the Spyder, smooth that out with the front suspension of a Arctic Cat 650V-2 add the rear suspension of a 800 Outy and hook it all together with the Can-am transmission and rear ends as well as the 4X4 system ( yes include the visco lock).

Add heated grips and thumb warmer , foot pegs ( what ever they are called) from the Renegade.

A Renegade with a 2-stroke motor, lighter weight components, skids from the factory, 26-27" tires on nice black rims, the Gauges off of the new Ski-Doo sleds, and 2x4 to 4x4 ON THE FLY

Man, you just left out a winch mount and mud guards. Then sign me up on the waiting list. Would sell my soul to have one. John
