View Full Version : POS Polaris

Not real impresses with the wife's 2010 850XP, has awesome power and ride, power steering is incredible, low geared so crawls up hill and very stable. On the bad side 1300km and ALL the bushings on all 4 front control arms are worn. Looks like Polaris knew there was a problem so they updated them half way thru 2010. go fuck yourself ADC works when it wants to, supposed to activate front axles for steep descents so the rear tires don't lock up and slide (engine compression braking) like the older ones do. Not cool when you really need it and don't want to be on the brakes. And lastly (for now anyways) the fuel guage works when it wants to, filled it up this morning and guage was still on empty, rocked the quad and bingo it's full!

My '07 Grizzly 700 has 8500km and still hasn't cost me a dime. Maybe look at a CantAm instead, anyone want a Polaris? :D

my 08 500 is awesome the only isue i have had was the front diff blew up on the ice cuz the rear was spinning fast when the front tried to lock in front diff blew up and the shitty polaris winch that came with it. and i have just shy of 4000kms on it and i have abused it along the way

Been using my 800 hard last few weeks.
In the mud and muskeg pulling some heavy loads.
Got tons of power and is easy to handle.

Trading it in on a 2012 Can Am 800 XT when the local dealer gets one in. 6 month warranty ran out looooong time ago and the Poo dealer here has a dickhead for a service manager so won't even bother trying for good will. It'll be the last toy I buy from the boys in Nelson, have had nothing but shitty service from them in the last year and I'm not alone.

If the Can Am gives me any problems the wife's getting a Grizzly like mine, it just won't die! Owned 3 new Yammy quads since '96, over 22,000km between all of them and only issue was the reverse sensor on the Grizzly.

I love my Can Am it rocks

The CanAm better handle the trails I ride (without wearing out in 1000km) otherwise it'll be gone fast on another Yammy! :D

I run a 700 grizz, 6000 km never a problem. My co-pilot I ride with bought the same one and has 11000 km, never has had a problem either. Go-Yamaha!
