Too big.

Unless your mudding or maybe running tracks it's too much. I beleive it also has to stay on class 2 utv trails.

It is too big, I rode one and the power is awesome! But, the machine is too small to handle that much power, just asking for driveterrain problems!! It was fun to ride though!!! wink

The T-Cat has a built in system to prevent drivetrain wear. It's called a Spike Load Dampener Rear differential.

By definition, anything with a motor larger than 800cc is supposed to be registered as an OHV and wouldn't be allowed on either Class 1 or Class 2 ATVs trails.

No power steering on the T-Cat. They call it a 1000, but the dispalcement is really 951cc.

The current laws that are in place were established when the biggest machine was 700cc. Now we have Polaris and Arctic cat who have surpassed that mark and possibly Yamaha with their announcement. I think that was supposed to come out today.

HMMMMMM. Gotta go check.

the announcement has been delayed by Yamaha. Guess we'll have to wait and see if there will be a bear worthy enough to chase the big cat out of the woods.

I believe they have maybe changed the way their displacement reads on the MSO to 799.9 cc. I have read in the past when you caluculate it out, the Can Am 800's are actually slightly over 800cc.

All of the Can Ams that I have seen are registered as a Class 1.

That's what I'm talking about! Yamaha,Honda, or Suzuki could easily use several engines to put in a wheeler, but will they?
