We have just over 100 miles on our 2021 Commander Max XT 1000R. There is a loud vibration noise in 2 Wheel drive when accelerating up to about 4500 rpm then it smooths out. When running in 4 Wheel Drive the vibration does not occur and it runs smoothly regardless of rpm. Seems to be coming from underneath the center of the vehicle not really the back where the engine is located. As a result we run in 4 Wheel drive all the time. Mentioned it to the dealer they told us to drive it a bit more and if it continues they are going to take a look at it. Brand new machine so it is disappointing. Anyone else having similar issues or ideas on what it could be?

Front drive shaft is probably not true or to far out of phase. If front wheels are turning the drive shaft us turning but no load of course when not in 4wd. Jack all four corners up put on stands put it in gear have someone throttle it up to around 2500 and you look in from side at the drive shaft and see if its wobbling. On either end .

This is a well know issue with the Maverick sport max and now the new Commander max (the rattle). Can am has issued a fix for problem. Hope this helps.

Thanks so much @plummcrazy58 this is really helpful!!! Sounds like exactly the issue we are experiencing. Strange that Can Am already knows about the issue and continue to sell new machines without fixing it??
I will share with these instructions that you provided with the dealer. Do you happen to have the rest of the solution instructions, it got cut off after #2. Thanks again! 🙏
