  1. Wanted
    I've got an 08 that desperately needs a motor. I managed to blow it up real good and at about 6 grand for a new one from a dealer I'd rather just go used seeing as its an 08 and even if it was in perfect condition, the whole bike wouldn't be worth that anymore. Stock, built, whatever. Just want...

    I have just joined the Can-Am family with a new toy. I have never owned a Can-Am ATV but I have come across a 2011 DS-450 XC for $1400. However, the motor does not turn but the rest of the ATV is in brand new shape. I figured with an engine rebuild I still scored a pretty good deal, I hope! I...

    I have a 2011 DS450X MX with an HMF slip on and a K&N intake with a high-flow lid and an Attitude Industries fuel programmer.
