Need some expert insight!

So I’ve been toying with the idea of buying a new quad and doing it up. 

Personaly im thinking either the outlander or renegade, they seem to be a lot of the people’s choices. 

So my questions are as follows...

should I buy a full trim and do it up from there, or will it be better to start basic and build it up? 

Which of the two would you recommend?

which engine cause I know bigger means heavier but is the weight worth it? 

No money needs to be spared but I don’t want to end up with a complete money pit.

any other quads and setups you would rather recommend than what I am concidering?

I like the Outlander Max 1000CC because I'm more into utility type of quad but if you are more into sport, get the renegade.

in my experience the sport style awd/4wd quads are good for sport.  However if you hunt, carry coolers, etc, they are pointless.  A utility quad will  run just as fast and can be just as fun and they will carry your stuff.  I always say price stuff and see if it is better to buy the base and add power steering and other "essential" items.  Most ATV manufacturers are hard pressed to warrant any breakage.  I run a shop and see so many guys with new machines that were not covered under warranty for mornonic reasons.

There have been a few member that have asked about the aftermarket power steering. 

How involved is it and what’s your choice of brand of there at a lot of brands ? 

Me as a hunter, outdoor person love the 4x4. Big fan of Honda,  Ive yet to ride a power steering bike so honestly I have no clue.

If I were You I would stay with Honda. I was a BRP mechanic for quite few years and  I can tell you need a dedicated scanner to fix & clear fault codes, changing ECMs,,instrument clusters etc.  they are no easy cake in terms of maintenance  they use OBD II system which is fine but the trouble is getting into the system due to propietary software that costs thousands not hundreds to scan.besides proper training using that software,Japanese rigs are as powerful as canadians but way more reliable and overall more affordable. I hope this give you an idea of what to look for your next ride .Cheers!!

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      I bought this four-wheeler used for my son's birthday last week. It wasn't running when I got it but after a new battery and some tinkering it has been running for 5 days probably 8-10 hours of run time. 
      Today after 1 hour  My son wanted to wash it, I showed him how to be careful not getting water near the engine. We were careful but after we washed it and let it dry the motor starts but the transmission slips and won't really go forward.  Even if I pick the back of the four wheeler up the wheels only go forward a tiny bit. It's as if something is slipping inside.   But it worked fine right before the wash.
      Not sure what brand. I was told it was 90 cc's the VIN is attached.  Is it 90 or 110ccs?
      No air filter came with it. Using a some old stockings until I figure out what air filter to order.
      My son is so bummed so I want to get it back up to speed but also teach him how to work on it.
