can am

So the can am has what is called a rotax motor. Is this right. Is it related to the rotax motors that are in the see do water craft? I have a freind that has worked at a yahmaha dealership for 22 years. My boss was in the market for a water craft and was told to stay away from any see do water craft because the motors are not worth a shirt. He said they are great at first but in time go to shirt. I stopped by a water craft repair center and asked his opinion as to which ones were the best and again another person said the see do rotax motor is the one that has the most problems. So what i want to know is, does the can am have the same type off bad rotax motor as the see do??? I know John Natally raced honda 450r 4 wheelers and was a champ for years and i know who built his motors. He the got sponsored by can am to race there 4 wheeler and ask the same guy that built the honda motors to build there can am motors and he did. But he can not keep the built can am motor together long. He can make them fast but they dont last. Any comments

My dad has some sea-do pwc that he bought new in 97 we have beat the crap out of them ever since and never have had a problem with the engine. They still run great. As far as I know the rotax is a solid motor and would love a new can-am.

Rotax builds brp's egines for sleds, sea-doo, atv's, and spyders. Had a sea-doo sportster jet boat . Engine was great... even after the.ex girlfreind sunk.it!!!!! Still hit 60 with one passenger. Had several ski-doo sleds. The 800 cc mills don't last. But talking two.stroke. rotax makes a stout engine for.sure,..... but i got.to.say the.sleds left a sour taste. Oh well. My two cents.

I know a lot of Rhino guys running Rotax motor without even the slightest issues. Cannot speak from personal experience though.

They can am's have awesome engines. I've never heard anyone say anything bad about there 800cc engine other than a bit thirsty. Other than that it has hang on power. I'd like to see Kawi step up and make a sporty looking ruv.

I would say Kawi don't have to far to go, I think the Teryx is a pretty good start, I don't think they are going to roll over and play dead for Can Am. I think Kawis research and developement matches anyone and they for sure have deep pockets, If they want to be out front I think they can make a serious run at it.
