Okay thanks for the info LBR.2011 & 12 rearends were bad...when you test drive it, listen for any odd noises from the rear besides the normal CVT sounds.
Thanks again. Greatly appreciated.The Rotax is one of the most bulletproof engines out there and has been in production since the early 1920s....you take care of it, it will take care of you.
The 2011 Commander was BRPs first UTV and they missed the mark on the rearend...only because they wanted strength and decided to use a straight cut ring and pinion. Unfortunately those 2 years rear sections kind of rattled themselves into long term failures.
I know nothing about the RZR engines except they started production in mid 2000s. I would fly in any plane with Rotax power...but would run from a Polaris powered plane...lol
Good luck with whatever you chose for a machine...they are all fun!
