Switching to the sport side of things for a while, it looks like they would be a blast to drive. Which model of Maverick are you getting?

Did you already sell your Prowler or are you trading it in on the Maverick? Are you going with the 4 seater?

Don't blame you one bit. If my wife was more on board, I'd probably have a newer machine myself. Some nice offerings out there now by all makers.

I think there very nice machines,,,,Lot's of them at Hatfield and McCoy's this time, along with Can-AM Quads..............Didn't see any Prowlers,or wildcat's.

2 words....holy ****!!!this things a freaking monster, pulls hard all the way to 79 mph, take 2 foot deep whoops at 50, has 2 modes for driving, sport mode and regular, regular mode smooth out the throttle input and changes timing a little, sport mode is balls to the wall but kinda twitchy in the rocks. put 72 miles on it this morning in 4 hours, no funny noises, no parking brake to worry about holding, fox 2.0 suspension took everything i could throw at it. now i just need to make a top for it, extend the cage in the back for a small jump seat for when my son isnt riding his quad, and put on a half windshield. holds 10 gallons of fuel and by the end of the ride it was only down two notches from full. weird thing is is that its the only sxs with catalyst, but this thing is dialed in from the factory. i dont have one negative thing to say about it so far....:D

yeah the prowler is long gone. no offense to anyone else with prowlers but i was glad to drive away from it and know it wasnt mine anymore, too many headaches and time spent in the garage instead of riding, granted they all have theyre problems but so far can am has had a recall on all the problems that people have been having and they were already taken care of on my unit when i bought it.

The biggest problem with the prowler is nothing,A lot of guy's fix the prowler up to be a high performance machine,and then they ride it like it's a RZR,it's not made for that,the prowler is a cross over machine work and recreational.The XTZ is the same thing a big motor dropped in a utility machine.I have 1900 dollars worth of shocks on mine,I will admit it rides great,but it still don't ride like a rzr-s at high speeds.to make a prowler a performance machine you need to do what Darryl89 or flying121 did.or buy a machine that's made to fly through the air 40 feet +

Pics would be great and video even better, it sounds like an awesome ride and that's what a sport machine should be. I would love to ride one wide open to see what they would do but hell I'm having a hard enough time finding a place to open up my Prowler other than pavement. I know where your coming from Mike you have to buy the machine for the use it's intended for and what fits your needs. The utility fits my needs more but damn I still would like to hit the desert with a sport, sometimes ya have the need for speed.:cool:
