    Ms SpyderAnn01,
    A question for you or Mr. CptJAM concerning how the rear plays into the thrust alignment. As we know, the belt on pulley alignment trumps the wheel to frame alignment, but help me...

    Mr KosherKid,
    I went through exactly what you're going through to arrive at exactly what BLUEKNIGHT911 and Peter Aawen suggest. I tried the 4 PSI rule, which didn't work for me. I could only get 1...

    :agree:
    In my estimation, a lot of dealerships are "Stuck on Stupid" as far as technical specifications go. I can't recommend any alignment shop that doesn't have multiple satisfied mentions on the...

    If I were looking used I would try to get a 16 or 17 with warranty left, and if possible buy the extended warranty to boot. I bought an 18 RTL and it has been plagued with problems. Parking brake...

    On my 2018 RTL they initially replaced the left handlebar switch pack (it's all one big conglomerate of switches) and it made it a shade over 2 months and 1258 miles until the gremlin reappeared. It...

    Mr. Tenic,
    This is a good write up. For all the folks who say I don't need it because mine is good enough, you can't knock it until you've tried it! A good alignment is a great thing. As is the...

    Everything I've purchased from Cheapcycleparts has arrived promptly and been the same price as BRP's website. You have to pay shipping and tax though. Worth it if you're not doing warranty repair.

    It's a very regional thing, prices for the exact same coverage can double or even triple depending on where the vehicle is registered. Seems like the poorer states do get...

    Mr. gerald37,

    Mr bobbarb4546,
    Don't know if they changed much between the years, but my 2018 RTL lists the alternator as 90 Amps maximum. The 25 amp circuit you put on would take around 28% of the total...

    One thing I thought of other than the automatic leveling system. If you step down from the RT Limited with automatic leveling system, what other features do you lose, and would you want those?

    Mr. KX5062,

    My take on this is that Can Am didn't put enough spring under the rear of the bike and the automatic air leveling system is asked to do more work than it is actually capable of doing. On the...

    Mr. Mikey,
