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?

      New to the ATV world, picked up a solid used Kodiak 400.  It appears the former owner did some sort of modification for a saddle bag or something along those lines--and I'd like to match it up and replace it.  Not a big deal by any means but something I thought I would give a shot at finding.
      does anyone recognize what kind of luggage/bag/cargo would go where those white tabs are he drilled through that fuel fender?
       
      Thanks again

      Let me start with I have about 30 years of ATC experience, but not much with stuff made after 1988.  Some, but I'm mechanically inclined so it's all good.  I"m rehabbing a 1997 Bayou 220 to send back into the wild and the mechanicals are now all good, just working on making the electrical system...electric.  Right now, I have no power on the white wire as tested directly on the plug at the starter solenoid.  I'm assuming that wire is supposed to be hot any time it's attached to a battery?  The genius that had it before snipped a couple wires and inserted a fairly heavy push button for electric start bypassing the electrical system. I think i've corrected everything north of the solenoid but the white wire has me stumped.  Is my assumption that this should always be hot with a hot battery correct?  Does this indicate a broken circuit in the starter solenoid?  Relay was also bad and wired incorrectly, but that's resolved and I can make the relay click bypassing the solenoid and connector, directly giving the white wire 12V.  Thoughts?

      Hi all, 
      Just joined up with premium membership.  I wish to download a service manual or 2 (specifically the Polaris 110 EFI manual).   I paid for the membership, but when I try to download it says it's not available to me.  I know I haven't posted anything until now, but I thought the premium membership gave instant access to downloads.     Not sure what I'm doing wrong?  
      Thanks!
