So I have finally crossed over to the dark side and bought myself a new quad[36].
2016 Polaris Sportsman 570SP. Have only been able to put 18km on it so far but am loving every minute of it. Power steering is fucking amazing!:party0010:

Summer just got alot more fun for this guy. Anyways here are a couple pics of it. Was having too much fun riding to get any action shots, next time

For the last 2 seasons I rode a friends Yamaha 125 and while I took that thing places where it should never had been able to go it just cant compete with a real machine. This thing rides like a Cadillac:cool:

Thanks trailjunkie, I would recommend at least checking out the Polaris line, their pricing is good and they are supposed to have the best and only true 4wd on the market. Power steering is amazing, no sore shoulders after a good ride

What does that mean only true 4wd?

Polaris calls it true 4-wheel drive because when it is engaged it is indeed sending full power to all 4 wheels all the time irregardless of the traction conditions under the wheels. The system senses differential wheel speed between the front and the rear and then engages within 1/5 wheel revolution. I believe there must be a 20% difference in wheel speed before the system engages.

Yes whereas with some of the others it's like having limited slip or open diffs.
I will make sure to take some pics some good stucks.

That's where I bought it, at Spectra Powersports, 1500 less than anywhere else.
Of course bought the extended 5 year full warranty.

Thanks Lj Johnson [cheers] it needed to happen cause there is so many more
Quadding trails than jeep trails around here

Hmmm my kodiak does that with the optional lockers.

Anywhere a quad can go a jeep can go

Unfortunately I have proven this not to be true, at least not without constant stopping and chainsaw use to make new trails

I never did like the design of this, electric hubs on the old ones, built into the front diff on newer models. They use a one way roller clutch so engine braking is non existent on the front wheels. Some have ADC, my 2010 850 did but worked half the time, the other half I was sliding down the steep trails because the engine braking was awesome but only working on the back tires lol! I'll take the locking diffs on my Grizz and Kawi Teryx any day. The Polaris does have the best power steering though
