Trail rated 4 seat SxS?

Recommended Posts

I’m looking at breaking into the SxS scene and really want a 4 seater. BUT I also would like one that is 50” trail capable as well. I have small kids that need seats so we can all go play at one time. Looking around I’m just not seeing that there is one out there. Does anyone know if they do in-fact exist and maybe I’m just missing it?

 

Thanks for the help...

I’m assuming your referring to a 6x6 ?

I’ve only seen a few come by here and there and look cool as heck but it’s a once in a while post.  They do accommodate up to six or four people  

As far as the 4 seater well there are many types and brands that you would not need a 6x6 for. But if your  hell bent on that take a look at Polaris   

Good luck

Not a 6x6, just a 4wd UTV that will seat 4 or so that is 50” for national forest service trails. All of the 4 seat side by side I’ve seen are over 50”.

Side by side ahh ok. Never seen SXS before as an abbreviation. 

A four seater less then 51” I think I’ve seen some that narrow but they were more of the utility type not sporty.

Check out this review page. You can click on each of the links on each manufacturer for the specs. 

The maverick is 50”

I’ve looked at that and then went to each manu website but non of those were 4 seaters or even offered it. I think I may be stuck with a larger UTV and relegated to the other trails. I won’t give up hope though!

im a huge fan of polaris' RZRs.  i think they are mostly 60in to 70in wide..  the turbo s velocity is their latest model- pretty high dollar but it can sure go fast.  i dont think you will find many 50in sxs out there because being that narrow posses a roll threat..  whats keeping you at 50in?  polaris also sells rangers with are work geared and the general which is pretty much a rzr with a dump bed..  hope this helps!

but@Frank Angerano is right- you can fit a bunch of people on the polaris big boss- they still make them i think..

The 50” requirement is for use on National Forest Service trails that are width restricted at 50”. I would like to be able to get up on those trails and up in those areas for hunting. Plus it’s off the beaten path in areas that the bigger UTVs, Jeeps, etc aren’t allowed in.

ohhh  i see.  well most of the time they dont make sxs that narrow to prevent roll-overs.  so the 570 rzr is 50in wide but only a two seater.  there is a 570 ranger 4 seater but its 60in wide.  the most narrow rzr 4 seater is also 60in wide.  i was just looking at polaris' website for this, maybe theres others out there but i'd guess the width would end up about the same..

So I think my answer is gonna be a no on finding the SxS I want. I HAVE to have a 4+ seat machine so I’m just going to look for the best one for the money at this point.

In the while ATV universe there are only maybe 5 SXS's that are trail width rated. Polaris has one rzr 570, Honda pioneer 500, can am maverick trail, artic cat/textron wildcat trail, and cf moto offers one in a 570 and 700 trail. None of these however offer a 4 seat. I too want a sxs in a trail width so that I wouldn't be hindered by any restrictions, but with the lack of options available I don't know if it's a possibility. Have you thought of buying 2 2up atvs? One for you and one for the wife, one kid rides in back of each. Most of the major brands offer a 2up ATV right now. The base Polaris 570 2up is built on the same frame of a regular 570 machine, but instead of a rear rack it has a seat. Two of those would probably cost about as much as a sxs. They also have one with a longer wheelbase and better passenger seat. I drive a cat TRV (two rider vehicle) ATV and it's done everything I've ever asked of it.

I have considered it and am looking at all those options now. I think the regular wheelbase one will be fine since my kids aren’t big yet. Maybe get one of each, regular and long wheelbase. I’m not made of money and trading one in a couple of years down the road because my kids grew up isn’t a great option.

      Loud Mini blue 4 wheeler with little orange was stolen late at night from our yard. Does not have a key only a kill switch no stickers just plane no license plate due to it not being road legal. Was seen drove on four wheeler trails in Hibbing. It was my 5 year olds birthday present and means the world to him. He’s been very upset and hurt that someone could steal his four wheeler and is so little for him to understand that some heartless people in the world do bad things And is trying to do yard work for a reward and to buy a new one 🙁 we just want our sons smile to be brought to his innocent face. Thank you for taking the time to read

      Hey all.
       
      I am looking for any leads on a 2-Up for my KQ700.  I'm reading up here on regulations and it seems it needs to be factory or frame mounted, I can't strap it to the back rack as an example.  Anyone have any idea on brands, web sites, anything..?  Are they normally called "2-Up" ?  Should I be searching with a different term?

      I just bought a 2018 Can Am 570 Outlander and was hoping to try to find a way to convert a Can Am 2-up seat that I picked up on Craigslist  to my new machine in some fashion.  No way to do it without the seat sitting up 8-9 inches above the main seat. Scrapped that Idea but decided to try to convert it to my Honda Rancher.  Also in a way that would allow me to remove it quickly and allow access to my battery compartment if necessary. Here's what I came up with.  
      Since the seat has two fork like protrusions on the front underside I needed to come up with something that they would lock into. On rear underside there is a spring loaded handle that allows it to lock onto a 3/8" round bar.  I wanted the bar that the front part of the seat locked into to also be removable so I came up with a design for the bar that would slide onto the front side of the rear rack and pin into place using the rack itself as the mounting base. Then I welded a couple pieces of 3/4" pipe to the rear part of the rear rack with a piece of 3/8" solid bar stock onto the front of the two pieces of pipe that were welded to the rear section of the rack.  The forks of the seat lock into the front bar, the pipes at the back not only support the rear part of the seat but act as a centering guide for the two locking mechanisms that lock onto the 3/8" bar stock. When it is locked into place it is extremely solid and has no way of coming loose except when I release the spring loaded handle. And it actually doesn't look too bad when installed either. Plus, the front side of the rear seat acts as a back rest for the small of the drivers back, pretty cool.

      My daughter has a 06 Kolpin 90cc sport and the seat broke. I am trying to find a seat replacement for it, since it isn't supplied anymore. Does anyone have any ideas or other model seats that might work with it.
