I bought a Commander Max a few weeks ago and have had it out twice so far and the engine rpm's seem to be a bit on the high side for the speed we are traveling(5000 rpm at about 25 mph) is this common? I have tried both keys and switched between sport and eco mode and it does't seem to make a difference. Haven't had an atv with a CVT so not sure if this is normal.

Almost think you are in Low, run it up to 8,000 in high and report back.

Thanks for the quick responces how reliable are the motors running at such a high rpm constantly? I'll do all of your suggestions once we have it broken in a bit more, only have about 7 hours on it yet, and report back to this tread. It may be a couple of weeks now since its been raining here in the desert of Phoenix. Thanks again.

5000 on the tach while touring sounds normal to me . If you floor it the tach should go to 7000--7200 and stay at that rpm while it's floored and gaining speed . Once the clutching is done shifting then the RPM should start climbing above the shiftout rpm until you reach top speed

It depends on your ground speed . If your in low and crawling at 5 mph your RPM will be below 3000 . If your in low and you floor it your RPM will shoot up to your shiftout RPM . Once you have run out of clutch shift your rpm will then climb up from your shiftout until your ecm RPM limiter kicks in

So around my campground the speed limit is 5-10mph should I be in low? Thought I saw a post before about that but I suffer from CRS. Also what does shift out RPM mean? Thanks for the insight! It's much appreciated.
