Below is a copy of the various official Can-Am technical documents. Some are for the military model, but most Can-Am’s share the same basic configuration, especially with the Rotax engines.

Looking for workshop manuals, operators manuals or parts lists? Look under Manuals on the Technical Menu.  I have most manuals for the MX, TnT, Qualifier, ASE and Sonic models but don’t publish the full document on the website. For a donation to keep Canned-Ham going, I will email you a pdf copy of the manual. Just send me an email to letting me know what you need.

As time permits, I will be publishing more extracts from the various manuals I own.
