500 cc will have the power but if u want good range on the gas i wouldn't go to much higher on the cc scale cause u will eat up more gas...

Yeah it will carry that..

Fuel Capacity 6 gal./22.7 ltr.

Front-Rack Capacity 90 lb./40.8 kg.

Rear-Rack Capacity 180 lb./81.6 kg.

Hitch Towing Capacity 1225 lb./555.7 kg.

Braked Trailer Towing Capacity 1,995 lbs/905 kg

I personally am not a huge fan of Polaris and have seen my fair share of suspension problems on trails. Struts coming a part after hard hits, etc..

I would also check out the Can-Am. Outlander Max 500 EFI

TTI independent rear suspension

Lightweight double A-arm front suspension

Visco-Lok† auto-locking front differential

Center Skid Plate

Multi-function full digital gauge

D.E.S.S. electronic anti-theft system

Steel Racks with 300-pound [136 kg] capacity

26-inch radial tires with steel wheels

Ergonomic passenger backrest

Convertible rack/seat system with totable storage box

Raised floorboards

Multi-position passenger handgrips

Driver lumbar support

apparently there are other two-ups available ... will be wise to consider those too before making a final decision ... thanks to all who have responded to this request for info; very useful input from everyone.

      Recently purchased a 2007 Suzuki LTZ250 for my kids. I am having a difficult time finding service manual for this quad. I want the kids to study it before they ride it. Suggestions?

      I haven't rode in a very long time and a friend is selling me a 1985 TRX he obtained through family that is in pristine condition. I have a few questions since he can't find the manual- and sorry if I come off dumb or "noobish".
      1) Gears- these are 5 speed right? 5 down and up is back to neutral?
      2) 4 stroke 10-w30 for oil? How much?
      3) spark gap?
      Thanks for your time.

      Hi would like to know if the big ring gear is meant to be pressing hard up against the speedo gear.
      the bike had been rolled over so i was think that the roll has moved the bevel gear over a bit. one of the shim washers was pushed in to the bearing a bit and the break drum had been hitting the cover as well.
      but also the 2 lock nuts where lose there is that was well
       
      Thanks
