one seater vs two seater

Recommended Posts

Newbie here.

I'm looking for a new family hobby. 

I just bought my son his first atv and am now starting to look for myself.  The question is whether I should look at 2 seaters i.e. can am or single seaters.  Initially, I thought I would get a 2 seater for the wife and myself, but I am a little nervous because those units look so big.  I worry that it won't be as fun to drive and will be unduly heavy.  Also, I am thinking that if we like this new hobby the wife would like her own rather than riding behind me. 

Anybody want to chime in?

You've come to the right place, welcome to QUADCRAZY! The one seater larger ATVs can fit 2 people no real issues. I've had people on the back. I'm not a fan of the 2 seat factory design unless you are always going out with a second person. What you can invest in is some good rear cargo (atv trunk) to mount to your rear rack for seat extension and back support. However, I've never owned a two seater so maybe someone who has will have better insight! :D

Real Short, I have a Arctic cat 2 up ( two person ATV , one seat front and rear Connected ) I would not go any other way Personally. My wife have a Arctic cat Prowler SxS ( 2 Passenger Side by side ) It is bulky to me but each machine has it's own place in the market. I use mine for hunting and trail riding. We use hers to ride trails to get out to see what we see.

I just bought a new 2017 Yamaha Grizzly LE.  Brushed silver.   It is very cool.   Now just trying to find some trails for my son and myself. 

I plan to rent one for my wife initially to see how much she likes it ..or not .

Oooh...nice! Post some pictures or add some to the pictures section https://www.quadcrazy.com/gallery/

So the LE is a 700, does it have power steering? I have a 2004 Grizzly.

How much is it to rent an atv? You have a place by you that rents?

      Hey guys , i think i made mistake when purchased my machine when i thought id be fine with a manual lift moose plow set up .
      plow is great , takes a beating , very satisfied however the manual lift for it just kicks my ass after 4 hours or so. Lol 
      so im looking at changing over to a winch , no biggie im definitely going to do it , 
      where my question is , when looking at winches i came to the divide in the trail ...nylon rope ,or old style cable ?  I will be,only using this for plowing that is all , i use choke cables and tug straps for other work ...... somwhat do you think guys , its not a price issue , im looking for longterm dependability.... i questioned the rope getting wet while plowing , maybe no biggie not sure. ..
      thanks guys.  Airborne

      One of my good friends just added this 2018 Textron Wildcat XX to his garage. He already has an RZR and a few quads but said he only wants to ride this thing now because it’s that awesome. I’m still waiting to find some time and go out with him and hit the trails. Here’s some pics..

      '11 Grizz 700 here.  Since I've got some warm weather these next couple days I've decided to start the bike after about a year of just sitting.  Took out the plug and sprayed a good amount of fogging oil on top of the piston to help lubricate things.  After about a minute of letting it soak I stuck my air line tubing in to suck out the excess, but it seems like I didn't get nearly as much in return.  Repositioned the tube enough so that everything that was gonna come out pretty much did.  I'll probably shoot some compressed air down the plug hole before doing the start just to make sure it's all out, as well as cranking it for a second before putting the plug back in.   How long would it take for a bit of standing fogging oil to seep past the piston rings, and where would it go?  I guess into the engine oil?  The oil was fairly new the last time it was started but I'm sure it could stand to be changed after sitting for so long.  If much of this fogging oil got into the engine oil should I do the change before the startup?

      Just got the above mentioned quadrunner. First one ever. Always been a small engine tinkerer but figured I'd need a little help on this one.

      I have a 1994 big bear and I am starting to have issues starting. I put in a new starter and selnoid as the at stopped starting with the electrical but will still start with the pull cord. Where and what now should I be looking at to check? If I turn key to on and the switch to on then hit the start button, the bike clicks and then nothing. Lights still work but no response to the starter. Stumped now. Any help would be greAt.
