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?

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
