LOL, You're explaining more all the time cutter, why you keep wearing out suspension components.
I know, but hopefully the rebuild I finished up with this past week with the better quality components, things will last a little longer.

To the OP congrats on your new 1000, you will never go back to a smaller quad again! Can't wait for a 1200 to come out

What better quality components did you use ? And FYI anything over 1000 cc is illegal even for side by side ,why you think putting Turbo Charger on a 925cc .

I used Super ATV UHMW self lubricating A arm bushings and pins (will still be greasing them), automotive size greasable polyurethane sway brace bushings, polyurethane sway brace ends, Timken wheel bearings.

The best advise I can give from my experiences with my suspension issues is to MAKE SURE to keep all the A arm, shocks and hub bolts TIGHT and USE grease after each ride. Check often! Even new machine owners need to check to make sure they are tight before you ride. I would also advise to buy the wheel bearing greasing tool and grease the wheel bearings, even on a new quad. The factory that builds the bearings only put a small amount of light assembly grease in them. Even the new Timken's I installed took around eight to ten pumps of the grease gun to purge out the assembly grease.

I guess I can only dream of a bigger sized XP I went out and couldn't find any Federal Regulations limiting engine size, did find some state regulations limiting size.

Don't think there are regulations on atv engine size, nothing comes up.
And there it is, most states won't allow over 1000cc engine size, for some reason, it will qualify as an off road only vehicle,???

must modify

I've never heard of such a thing as a limit on engine size. There's lots of regulations concerning vehicle size/width on certain public trails though.
Show me some proof!

I found the video on YouTube (yours wouldn't play). I don't believe it just because that guy said it but it made me curious enough to look. I'd never heard of a 1000cc limit on engine size for ATV/UTV. After a little research here's what I found.
There is no hard RULE against having more than 1000cc engines BUT apparently anything larger falls under a different classification under EPA regulations for emissions standards!! I didn't read all the regs. It would take several days even if you're a fast reader lol. From what I gleaned with a fast look, larger engines would fall under a different classification than "ATV" requiring a lot of the same emissions equipment found on you family sedan. That's why the manufacturers are, at least for now, limited to 1000cc or less. There is an exemption in the regs for machines that the manufacturer can show proof will be sold only for competition use.
The 1000cc EPA regulatory limit applies for ATV/UTV certification for machines built after 2006.

Here's some copy and past from the EPA and a link to the full Regs if anyone's interested in some bedtime reading lol. I threw in some other stuff I found too... Happy reading!
This is from another forum:
While reading this article ---> 2017 Arctic Cat Snowmobile Lineup Unveiled - Snowmobile.com, there is one paragraph that contains the following sentences. "The Genesis motor was a 1049 where this new C-TEC4 from Yamaha is 50cc. smaller. Why smaller? The good ol’ USA has a governmental regulatory agency called EPA – Environmental Protection Agency – where it codified that the biggest four-stroke motor any UTV/SxS builder can stuff into the vehicle is 1000cc. This forced Yamaha to overhaul and reengineer the Genesis to be a 998. And with that came that product created on the eighth-day, a turbocharger."
