Whether you're replacing the engine in your Can-am Defender or simply looking for ways to improve performance, Everything Can-Am Offorad has the engine parts and assemblies to make any engine-related task easier. Many Can-am Defender owners use engine parts from the HP Commander or Maverick 1000 side-by-sides as they have the same style engines with just a few different parts. It is important to note that the Mav motor can't bolt directly onto the Defender's transmission, but if you swap heads, it can be made to work. The Defender is built for low-end grunt, so even though it may not be able to go above 75 MPH, with an upgraded head cam and proper tune, you can have an impressive torque curve that is much better than stock. Properly adjusting the UTV's ECU is important for maximizing performance gains. RJWC dual exhaust pipes can also help you squeeze every last bit of horsepower out of your engine. At Everything Can-Am Offorad, we have the engine parts, kits, and assemblies to help you maintain and extend the life of your UTV engine.

If you look around the internet, you’ll find plenty of OG Mavericks, Defenders, and Commanders with original engines and high hours. This goes to show that it’s all about how you maintain them. Treat your UTV engine with care, and it’ll give back ten-fold in the long run. One of the best ways to extend the life of your Can-Am Defender’s engine is to ensure that it is always properly lubricated. We here at Everything Can-Am Offroad appreciate Lucas, Rotella T6, and Amsoil as much as the next guy, but they are not formulated to run at the high temperatures and RPMs that occur in Rotax engines. This is why we recommend oiling your Can-am Defender engine with XPS. After all, why jeopardize your machine with any other oil beyond what the engine is tested with? So if you’re looking for engine oil, engine components, or complete, ready-to-install, engines for the Can-Am Defender, look no further than the UTV engine selection here at Everything Can-Am Offroad!
