  1. So it appears I’ve made my decision that the Maverick Trail 1000 DPS is the winner. Obviously, like anything, nothing is perfect. You can find flaws on anything you don’t want and no flaws on what you want. 🙂 In reality, you can find flaws on everything but which flaws can you live with. The flaws I have seen in video reviews and talked about on forums I have come to the conclusion, owners of all the UTV’s like the Can-Am the most so giving it my money.

    • Today (Friday 2/25/2019) I checked out the build and was somewhat bummed when I learned they are unable to use the Aluminum roof and have a back window. Also they were going to have to drill holes in the roof to mount stuff.

      Next issue is they can’t install the trunk with snorkels in place.

      So looks like we now have a back window and the top half (soft) of the doors. It also appears we had another set of doors on the order which was uneeded since the DPS model comes with the half doors and I also went camo versus yellow.

      Got approved for a loan from ELGA CU at 3.25% for the Can-AM

      It appears they are going to give us $1000 for the broken Polaris X2 Sportsman 500 and this is right after I paid over $700 for a tuneup at Chapmans. Also teh Suzuki 185 is junk and that will be a wash (if I’m lucky) since they have $300 in labor and I think with it not working they may only give $200. Then we have the Honda TRX250 which they may give us $1000-$1200 for.

      With the tradein I’m trying to get a Suzuki 125 dirt bike for Zack and a Yamaha Warrior 350 for Kate. AND I’m picking up a late 90’s Honda 250 from a friend for $900.

      yea, busy spending money I don’t really have but you live only once.

      • In a potential solution for the trunk that won’t work because of the snorkels I asked for help from Ryfab since I can’t be the only person with the snorkel kit on my Can-Am and this is what they responded with:
        “I have never fit one with the snorkels. It is too close to know. If you have them and could get measurements for sure of height with photos would be good.
        Thank you,

        Will keep you posted. Maybe they’ll have something for us Snorkel guys too soon.

  2. So the Honda I got from a friend is a 1998 Honda Recon TRX250.  Its all green and looks very clean.  I can get it to run if I have starter fluid or spray seafoam in the carb with the choke fully open.  As soon as I try and turn the choke off it stalls.  I let seafoam sit in carb for awhile and still try but its just done and thats after a day of working on it.

    I know the carb is probably super tarnished from sitting for so long so either rebuild carb and have the same issue possibly or pick up a OEM Carb from Honda for $100 and put it in (which is way cheaper than the suzuki 185 which was $440 for a new carb from babbits).  Should get carb tomorrow (Friday 2/1) and I’ll put it in and see what happens.
