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!!

      My four wheeler when i first got it seemed like it was very slow when i first got it and it had no throttle response so i replaced the belt and cleaned all of the rollers thinking that would solve the problem from what i read on the forums. well it turned out that it wasnt. so i went to the next thing i took out the injector to check it out and i seen that there was a tiny bit of debree in it so i cleaned it and it seemed to improve a little bit. but still did not solve the problem. i later found out how to find the trouble codes out from the lcd screen using a paper clip on the diagnostic port and it showed the code which stood for no codes C00. i also forgot to mention that the throttle position censor is working perfect. before i started all of this the four wheeler ran just not to its potential. after my friend and i did the trouble code test the bike wouldnt even start anymore and the injector would spray for a few seconds for the start up then it stops and the fuel injection light comes on and blinks. the four wheeler wouldnt start anymore. i took it over to the local shop and they hooked it up to the computer to see if there was any codes and it still showed it was free of codes. they hooked it up to the fuel pressure gauge and we found that it was making 22 pounds and it should be making around 43. i then bought a new fuel pump and put it in. it now starts and runs for a few seconds and then it stalls out and the fuel injection light comes on again. which then leads me to think it is the ecu now but i want to be sure before i invest around $500 more into it. any opinions on whether or not anyone thinks this is the problem or if they have had a similar problem before would be really appreciated. sorry for writing a novel and not spelling very well. also i forgot to put the year in the title it is a 2007

      Hi there everyone. Just seeing if there is advice on a problem I have before I start digging too deep. 
      I recently bought this creally nice 2004 King quad ltf300 with only 2400km..
      Everything things works great except when engaged into 4wd or diff lock it has a clicking noise ( sounds like broken teeth etc) are the front diffs known to blow?  Or the transfer from engine?
      I am yet to test on some loose ground to see if I'm getting drive at front .
      I will be driving in to find problem in next few weeks but thought I'd see if anyone might know what it is first. Cheers
