Can't say as I blame you. I like the honda talon, the kawasaki krx and the the yamaha rmax. I need a bed so if I ever upgrade, it will probably be the rmax unless can am gets their sheet together. But for the time being, after all of the upgrades I've done to it, my OG commander is fine.UPDATE
brp authorized and said they been having problems with the clutches causing vibration….
Say that’s why does it in park. But I have been dealing with the manager and I think I’m gonna trade it in on a 2020 talon live wire 1000 4 seater. Get away from that can am. The entire experience has left a bad taste in my mouth!
My buddy has the talon and can’t say enough about it. I will say that it seems the dealer as well as brp are trying to do what they can. However I did not get a discount for being their trial and error dummy so I’m out. I did ask that he let me know what they find, if he does I will update this post
How is it going with the new driveshafts. My XTP commander 2021 is in the dealership right now. They have an open case and waiting for instruction from BRP. I am happy I found this blog, so I know what I am up against.UPDATE !!!
The replacement driveshafts from BRP have been installed. There is a significant improvement in the amount of vibration, although it's not completely gone. I was unable to have the new shafts checked for true & balance. My take away is this... This shaft is straighter than the original, although not "dead straight". It may possibly be out of balance somewhat also. I will put it through it's paces over the next 2 1/2 weeks. I will report back.
I will let you know know what they say today when they are done . Did you open a cas with BRP. If yes can u give me the # , i will pas it along to my dealer ship so they know a bandaid will not work hereI can tell you that it is slightly better. My vibration was originally quit at 4900 RPM. With the new shaft it stops at 4600. Can Am is fully aware of the situation, and I've been told they will have a fix in 6-8 weeks.... dont hold your breath.
I can also tell you, that the drive shaft IS NOT the problem!! The shaft is just acting like a speaker, and making the noise more audible (easier to hear). Anything that is done to reduce the volume coming out of the shaft will seem as though the vibration has been reduced. The key here, is that the noise/vibration occurs while in Park, and just reving up the engine, the shaft IS NOT turning at this point.
The "solid" bearing mounts, and other "fixes" are just masking the sound, Not repairing the issue, as I have stated before. There will be an attempted fix by CanAm, just not sure how long we have to wait.
I have a 2021 Max DPS. I ran some tests. If the front is engaged to drive, no issue regardless of it the back diff is locked. I put it in neutral on a nice long hill, and it was much quieter than when I am driving in rwd but still had noticeable vibration.Curious to know if yours is a 2021 or 2022 ??
I recently purchased the new 22 Commander Max XT and experiencing the same issue. I let the dealer know and will bring their as soon as I have a trailer Keep us posted on your progress resolving it.Just got off the phone with BRP again....
No new options for repair. currently holding while "Engineering" works on a fix.
It is imperative that your dealer starts a claim with BRP. They need to have you on file to fully understand the shear #'s of machines with this problem!!! Additionally, if you run out of warranty, before getting a claim filed, you may not be covered under warranty.
I had the same initial impression with the set screw fix, but after 60+ miles the vibration is getting worse again. This is all on Can Am to PROPERLY FIX for their customers.So i finally got mine back from the dealer after 2 and a half weeks for them to install a set screw... The rattle is probably 95% gone, but i definitely hear something farther back towards the engine rattling at the same RPM range as before. At this point, they are stuck on the "Its a noisy Can-Am" excuse. Far more rideable and doesn't sound like a bucket of bolts driving around town, so i guess we wait until it starts getting worse...
