Arrow Quad Purchase ???

I am thinking about buying a quad in the Spring.

I want a newer 700 cc, preferably camo!

I not know which brand to buy - which one is better?

Have you had any good or bad experiences with particular quads?

Had a 07 800 Poolaris, nothing but trouble. Now have Can-Am Outty, 8 months no probs, cant beat that 800R Rotax power. Makes the Poolaris seem like a 400

I will agree they make the nicest quad lil bit more I've ridden the 650 2 up and that thing put most 800 s to shame the rear suspension is sick highest ground clearance out there

Canam - Yamaha - Kawasaki - Honda & Polaris all pretty much as good as each other. Quads are like trucks Jeep is better than Toyota etc etc you pretty much make your choice on which one you prefer and go with it. That being said though I have a Grizzly 660 & a Grizzly 700 and in my opinion they are the best all round bar none but Yamaha has stuck to there tried and tested formula but I really do wish they would put a v-twin into the Grizzly.

Honda only has limited shit front diff, as in clutches that suck, just like a LS truck diff.By the way, if you go Can-Am ,2010 + has the good front diff that actually works when you need it to

Things you want are non drum brakes, they don't work in the mud. A locker in the front, I have a limited slip and its lame. And low range, comes in handy for the slow stuff. I have a suzuki and no complains with it. The stave mud chews through the consumables though.

Can Am will require a frame modification to stiffen it up and they eat belts because of the great power.

I like Yamahas myself.

A good place to ask this question is at Quads.ca but be forewarned, there are a lot of differing opinions over there and the ones that tend to scream the loudest are the Canned Ham types.
