I chose Kawasaki because of the Brute Force. I have never heard anything bad about them, I know for a fact that the Brute's 750 has plenty of power. Plus I really like the looks of it.

For what I use a Quad for, the Polaris Sortsman 850 XP. I would agree with Bot, But I personally think the BF needs a lower kit to make it handle right.

Also is this to help you pick one MWKE? Or just for the heck of it?

Would also like to add the Kawasaki Brute Force 750 and 750 Suzuki King Quad are the lowest cost Big Guns offered. Yes, Roody I know the 650 Bf is cheaper. But I'm going for the Biggest Dog from each brand.

To add to my Polaris pick , I like all the aftermarket for work and play. Also like how they put the motor insideways like Honda. Less power lost in the drive train. Last but not least, American owned.

i chose arctic cat i like the ground clearance and all the mods u can do to them.. for work i would choose the 650 being a very good and some what cheap atv at around 6500 new, its got plenty of power and its well built and looks good in my opinion...and for play i would choose the mudpro probably one of the most expensive out their at around 8grand but its freakin awesome and the 28 inch mst's r good tires and the snorkels... i agree also with Buck Billy the 850 polaris xp is a really nice looken bike and their is a lot of power to it,, the only thing i dont like about it would be it not having metal racks and doesnt have the double a-arms on the front

1st - King Quad 2nd - Yamaha Grizzly, in my opinion. After that the Brute Force.

I'm not a Polaris fan, not crazy about their suspension. Artic Cat is getting better and offers that 1000CC.

My next utilty will have Power Steering.

I would definately check out the King Quad.

Yamaha And Polaris are Neck and Neck.....

Ummmm,,,,,,,I can see where I might be nice to have as far as Comfort Wise.....However,,,,I am having trouble buying 8K worth of comfort...I dont need the power....Or the 4X....Or the Power Steering....Or the Push Button Start....Or the Racks Etc. Etc.....

I can still go anywhere I ride a Quad will go.....On my little TreeFitty:yes:

    • Where is the ATV market headed?

      If you take a step back and look at the last 10 years of ATV production, you'll notice a bunch of changes. Most of which we think are in the utility line of quads including the increase in CC's and electronics. What else? What do you think we'll see...Soon to be 1000 CC's??

    • 1999 Utility ATV Sportsman 335 difficulty locating decent used cylinder 78mm bore 70mm stroke

      Does anyone have some experience with this model? Seems motor may not have passed the tests or held up very well for this beast of a machine. Not sure but parts are limited. One way or another this one will rise again and get a little mud on the tires....Thanks in advance for your knowledge should you care to share!

Thanks in advancer

      Having a problem figuring out what size hex wrench this part takes. It's labeled #9 at the extreme bottom right of the diagram...
      I have a half inch hex and that's def not it, too small. No parts store in town has anything that size so I'm gonna have to special order.
      Any idea what size driver this part takes?

      Just got this 700 grizz and I'm adding a hitch ball on the back just for the sake of having a good trailer tie down point. Not sure what I'd be towing with the bike in the future but I suppose I'd like to get whatever ball size would be most common on the things I'd be likely to tow with an ATV.
      So which size yall think would be best...1 7/8", 2", or 2 5/16" ?

      Educating myself getting ready to buy my first 4x4 and have some questions.
      1 - Engine size. One of my wants is to be able to pull a trailer up a trail with a decent amount of camping gear piled in, so I've been told to either look for a good size motor or one with hi-lo gears. From what I've learned so far it seems that something like a Sportsman 500 HO or 550 Griz would do that job fairly well. But for the sake of opening up my options could I possibly look into a smaller engine than these if it had hi-lo? Put another way...what's the smallest engine size I should be looking for on a machine that has hi-lo considering my pulling needs?
      2 - Can add power steering? Is it possible to add power steering to a model that didn't come with it, but other versions of that same year's model did? For example some of the 2008 Griz 550s came with PS and some didn't. If I found one that didn't have it could I reasonably assume I could add it later considering the frame and equipment has probably already been designed to work with it?
      3- Mileage and age. Most of the machines I'm seeing have between 500-1200 or so miles and I'm wondering how many is too many? Seen some with 2-3000+ and I'm most def staying away from those. But whats the mileage limit where you can expect major things (read expensive) to start going wrong with the machine? I've heard someone generally speaking say they would rather take a 2006 with 1000 miles on it vs a 2012 with 2000. Would most people agree?

      I have a 2007 Honda Recon ES and need some new tires. The stock tire sizes are 22x10-9 and 22x7-11. I'm looking at some Carlisle AT489 tires but the closest sizes i can find are 22x10-10 and 22x7-12. Will they fit? Thanks.
