Hello,
Ive owned a 2012 commander 1000, a 2014 maverick xrs 1000, and a 2019 x3 xds. Im not happy with the xtp performance..... Yes, it is smooth, and it is quiet. But it falls on its face in the top end. My unit only revs to 7000 rpm on flat roads. Going up a sandy hill it would only pull 6200 rpm's at wot. If i recall, my past 1000 v-twins would pull to 8200. If the 1000 v-twin peak power is in the low 8000's , why clutch it to 7000 peak??? So it appears I will need a clutch kit to raise my rpm's to peak hp ??

Can am geared the cvts on the new Commander more on a torque curve than a power curve. Most rpms I've seen or heard of on a stock cvt is 7500 rpms. Some have put the weights of a Maverick sport in and were happy with the outcome.

In low range flat out top speed is it still only 7000 and does it hit rev limiter at 7000? Wot should be around 6900 to 7200 but if it's stopping at 7000 something wise is going on. New weights will increase wide open Throttle. But only a flash will increase top rpm. If you put it on buds they should be able to turn off the speed limiter .

What are you referring to when you say “weights”?

Weights/levers on the governor cup on the primary.
