    Being able to separate subject matter similar to the RT and F3 forums may be good. Just not too many choices.

    There are three flavors of Ryker (600, 900, 900 Rally). That may be a good place to start. And...have a Ryker General for things that don't fit exactly.

    I was thinking that a section for the various engines and drivetrain systems would be helpful i.e. the Spyder has the ACE 1330 engine category. The Ryker needs the ACE 600 engine/drivetrain/CVT system and a ACE 900 engine/drivetrain/CVT system. The CVT is a component of the engine system thus its inclusion with the engine.

    I don't know if the engine/CVT systems need to be separated by engine displacement. Others members need to contribute their thoughts on that matter too. Perhaps only one engine/CVT category is required. I notice that many postings are just dumped into main categories that should have been separated out. Some posters are either lazy or unaware of their mistakes during thread selection.

    You never had those separate sections for the F3 and its forum works well as is.

    As a newb here I don't know what has worked in the past but I think until there is more of a critical mass of folks owning Rykers and posting here as members, it might be premature to further subdivide this forum. What I would like to see, but not sure if possible is to move the Ryker forum "up" to sit between Spyder RT - Touring and Spyder Shoptalk (all models). I believe the Spyder F3 - Hotrod/Cruiser forum should be moved as well so all the general model specific forums are above the technical forums.

    This might be beyond the original request for suggestions. If so, sorry.

    Should "Rally" be added as thats the model, as i dont see it on can-am's site as a model name?

    Your additions of the ACE 600 and 900 engine in Shop Talk looks great, but there is one small error that needs to be corrected.

    On the ACE 1330 engine listing heading you need to remove the mention of CVT since that engine does not have this type of transmission system. I underlined the part to strike below:

    Maintenance & Technical discussions for the ACE 1330 platform (Engine, Drive Train & CVT system)

    It looks like you need to add a section "Ryker Shop Talk" "Maintenance & Technical Support for the Ryker", since you have that category listing for a versions of Spyders. You did add the Ryker to the listing on the header divider. You updated it to read "Spyder and Ryder Technical Support Forums" now you may what to add ("Ryker Shop Talk" "Maintenance & Technical Support for the Ryker") category to allow us to talk maintenance and support.

    Rally can go away. 600 and 900 Forums are good though...IMO

    @AnthonyG

    I believe a consensus of forum members is to strike the word Rally from the description below. Delete the underlined word below in the header description please.

    You could replace the word Rally with (all models). At this time all models of the Ryker appear to be quite similar.

    "Discussions forum for the Ryker Rally."

    I'm not sure how well this request/idea will be received because of its negative connotation. However, this is a valid concern: EVERYONE needs to be informed about technical and safety recalls on their vehicles. So...

    How about creating a section under Shop Talk for factory recall notices and discussions? Maybe separate out the "recall board" out to the individual Can-Am models, or just have a single group with threads dedicated to each particular issue?

    As everyone is probably aware by now, I have been dealing with a unique set of verifiable problems with my Ryker in regards to the gearbox oil level bulletin. I think it might be more appropriate to separate those discussions (or at least news about the OFFICIAL manufacturer's bulletins) into a separate area. That would prevent the thread-bloat that my rants and documentary tirades create. ;-)

    Default Ryker's Island

    New sub-forum or topic request: Ryker's Island

    A destination for all Ryker inmates, natives, and potential "rehabilitation subjects" to share the joys and pains, trials and tribulations, laughs and tears, for better or worse... all of the glorious delerium of Can-Am Ryker ownership.

    I'm throwing this out there to claim the idea, but in hopes that other inmates will join the fray. "It's MY island, d*mn it! My idea, my rules, MINE!, MINE!, MIIInnnneee..." [... maniacal laughter as the Rally spews gravel and fishtails off into the distance...]

    I'm gonna get peeved if someone already claimed the idea on another board somewhere... Hmm, off to scour the interwebs for interlopers...

    CR*P! It does already exist: https://comicvine.gamespot.com/riker...nd/4020-55830/ I'm not a comic book aficionado... otherwise I would have known.

    But I'm still using it... it's MINE, I tell you... MINE! [... sharp driveline clunk as my still-unaligned Ryker tilts away at flank speed...]
