Why choose XP over Maverick?
The Polaris clutch and clutching system has been made durable through their snowmobile clutching, it's world class and second to NONE.
As a 2013 900LE owner with only about 200 miles and zero complaints, I can't imagine getting on my machine and wondering if the belt is gonna make the day.
I see guys saying the weak points to the maverick are the front diff and clutching, wholly crap! That's about 90% of the ride boys! When I hit 4X4, guess what, although rarely needed to be sure, IT JUST WoRKS! Like my clutch, sure, I am a Boy Scout, I have the "gates C12 carbon belt" just in case, but I also have extra battery cables to jump start someone, that's just prudent.
I hear a lot about the rotax engine, to be honest, I didn't think Rotax was that great at all (in my own machine) , the fact they bumped compression up to 12:1 means some guys are having trouble starting the damn things with the weak electronics.
When the two most important things, or 3 counting a good strong motor like the pro star are considered "weak points" the front diff, the clutching, and for me, that over cooked 101hp engine, there just isn't a comparison, and not that PoPo doesn't have some issues with customer support, and maybe using weak bushings and/or bearings, those are not going to leave you stranded hoping some dude in an XP comes by to save the day! And you KNOW in your heart, that this happens a couple times every weekend across the states, some over heated clutching makes belt fail, and due to the shear amount of XP riders, hopefully one comes by with a pull rope
