The new 2009 Polaris Outlaws are out!


Recommended Posts

Thank GOD I got an '08 - the '09s look like a LTR525XC - if you know what I mean. Is it just me, or does the front look really dumb - almost like my kid's Powerwheels?

I say give me the bad-as* old look, with the bigger tank - I'll loose the 6+ pounds myself.

You won't be in front of anyone for long with a tank that's a gallon smaller on the exact same bike. It's called an Outlaw and is supposed to look/be bad-as*, not be a look-a-like/copycat/every-other-quad type of thing.

Also, I got the dealer-new '08 with a 42mo warranty out the door (tax/title/set-up/license) for $6,500 and you'll be paying $8K+ for basicly the same quad; even spending part of the money on performance upgrades would smoke the '09 in a second.

The racing I do and have done you have pit stops. MSRP is 7600. You think I will pay that, you're crazy. Just because YOU don't like the looks doesn't mean everyone does. I personally think the 08 and older models are dumb looking.(the front) The new look is what I like about it. And the fact that it comes with Fox shocks. I'm sorry you don't like it, your opinion will be the LAST thing to sway me from buying one.

You guys - the '08 has the same FOX shocks, and it has the same 5252 KTM racing motor, and it has the same Maxxis tires. Other than the plastics/tank, the steering stem is the only real change. Please like what you like - but doesn't it still make sense to get the same bike right now for way less, use the extra cash for hop-ups and have a real ripper of a machine; especially for racing?

I understand what you're saying, the old look just isn't for me. I won't be getting anything new until next season. So then the 2010 machines will be out. I will get the same deal on an 09 leftover that I could get on the 08 now. KTM is what I really want, but the 08's are practically impossible to get, sold out everywhere near me. The 09 KTM cost about 12 grand.

Speaking of KTM's, I think this is the coolest looking machine I have ever seen.

I hear you there - I know in CA with the new '09 KTM MX (450/477[aka505] DOHC)/$12K coming out in addition to the '09 450/525/$9K KTM XC (same motor as the Outlaw), all the guys who bought the '08 KTM XC are about to trade up and you could probably snag a good deal on a '08 XC unless you're dead-set on new.

Just look at the specs, the 08 comes with a pipe that is comparable to any of the best after market. Same with the intake, suspension, wheels/tires. It is race ready. The 09 they made it dual over head cams instead of the sohc like the 08 which made it even faster. Not only does it still come with the best everything they even put bead locks. All you would really need fro racing is nerf bars.

      I own a few older quads mix of kinds a couple of  Yamahas, a Honda, can-am  a Kawasaki, they are older quads but in good shape the question of the day is....... what's the best way to polish up the plastic?
       I have found that Dollar General mold remover is good to get the black stuff off the plastic works good, but was wondering how you polish up the plastics on yours.

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      First time working with a Honda-Matic transmission. I didn't even know what I was getting into when I purchased this running beat up farm workhorse quad with black oil. I was thinking I could tear the cases apart and find the bad bearing, causing the random squealing noise when you put it into gear and give it gas. Upon opening the engine covers, I Learned about the Honda Matic automatic transmission and realized there's more than just an electronic shift motor going on in these quads. With my learning curve in major education mode, I'm now wondering two possible culprits to the squealing as I've torn the motor down and am staring at the Honda Matic transmission.

      Two possible issues:
      1. The bearing that is squealing is unfortunately inside the hondamatic unit hydraulic transmission which is apparently not serviceable? A new unit is $1,900 to replace it! Yikes!
      2. The pull starter rope snapped and someone replaced with the wrong pull starter rope that eventually became severely worn out and the centrifugal lever/catch shows signs of wear from rubbing against the housing.
      Thinking now the pull starter has nothing to do with a squealing that loud, so my attention is now on the Hondamatic unit, 
      Has anyone gotten inside their cases to inspect the Honda Matic transmission?
      There's a only 1or 2 videos out there that are not helpful for tear down and inspection.
      I understand it can't be rebuilt but wondering if anyone has looked deep enough into one to clean it out from running dirty oil? Possible identify bad parts.
      I refuse to believe Honda is engineeering these as completely non-serviceable?
      Thinking I will try to disassemble the Hondamatic unit m. Hopefully get into it and get all the dirty oil out and replace with fresh? Any special tools needed?
      Any and all thoughts/experiences with Hondamatic units would be great conversation for me..

      Anyone using the AtV/Motorcycle lift from Harbor Freight? I like the idea of having something other than jack stands. Is there another option that I should look into?
