I have an 07 Outlander 500 XT and love the power, ride, ergonomics, and features of the machine. The visco lock is kinda a love/hate relationship...I wasn't a big fan at first but I've gotten used to it. The only time I don't like it is when I'm hill climbing and it kicks in unexpectedly. I don't plan on ever getting rid of the machine, and will probably keep it for the gf/wife to drive.

their asking 5500 for it and its brand new does that about right for a base model?

It sounds like a good price to me. A little more power than a SP500 for a few hundred more. Let us know when you pick it up and be sure to post some pics.

sometimes dealers just can't move inventory while others can. I would definitely make sure they give the "extra once-over" to ensure there is enough lubrication in the cylinders and the top end prior to putting too much time on it.

its a brand new machine. and yes the sales person said that it might take a little time when i finaly buy it because they have to change all the fluids and make sure every thing is in working condition.

I have a 04 kawasaki prairie 700 and would love to have a can am. They are very nice machines and I have not heard anything bad about them. You are making a good choice.

That's a steal! It's almost $2000 cheaper than what I paid for mine brand new! I've got the green one also with chrome mag rims - it's sharp. You won't be disappointed!

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
