I'm looking to get another quad. I found about 3 Ploaris quads I'm looking at. On some of the reviwes I watched on you tube and read. Some people love'em & some hate'em. The biggest statement is it's a hit or mis with Polaris. Heres what I'm looking at 2 2011 Sportsman 550's w/eps & an 06 or 08 outlaw 525 irs sport quad. I rather hear from people who own or have owned a Polaris to hear your thoughts on quality and what to watchout for. The review that was pretty bad was a 2012 550 the eps quit two times and started working and has been ok. Then the active descent control quit on both quads they were doing a long term test. I'm on the fence about looking at the Polairs quads. Please help.

ive just bought a 09 550xp with eps, and love it has a plush ride and the only thing i know about the eps acting up is the relay either goes bad or gets corroded thats all ive heard about the eps.

I have my 01 Trailblazer for 8 yrs. I have not been nice to it. It has been rather nice to me. The only problems I have had have been regular wear and tear or caused directly by me. I have not owned any other Polaris quads, but this one I would have to give a hearty thumbs up.

Thanks guys .Wylde1 I know you have beat on your quad!!!! My body can't take the beating from my Prairie anymore and I keep reading & watching video reviews on how smooth the Polaris rides. I think with eps & a smoother riding quad I could still keep riding and enjoy it. Right now I enjoy it while I'm riding but after I hurt to bad. The doc said I need surgery a quad with eps & irs will be cheaper and way more fun. The other thing for me is I love the power my Prairie has and I will be giving that up with the 550. The Prairie will still be in the garage my daughter rides it now.

Check in with a dealer if you have one close to you. Try sitting on a couple and see how they feel. The location of the controls and your posture on the quad vary between brands and models. Once there you can ask all the questions you need. Good luck, hope you find one and are back out enjoying the ride soon.

We do have a local dealer Cycle Works they carry Kawasaki, Yamaha & Polaris we did have an Arctic cat dealer but I think their more of a farm, tractor & equipment dealer and the last time I went by it I didn't see the quads & I think the Arctic cat sign was no longer there. Then about 45 mins. away we have a larger dealership that has more to choose from. I know I can't buy a brand new quad so I'm trying to stay out of the dealerships. My wife would beat the I want a new quad! out of me she said about getting a new one till she found out it takes about 10,000 bucks for one.

      After looking at the wire diagram I saw the blue w/black stripe wire is coming from the neutral and reverse lights looking for ground thru the neutral and reverse switches. If it finds ground, the lights come on. The same wire also comes from the neutral relay looking for ground at the same neutral and reverse switches. So it was easy to trick the relay into thinking the engine is in neutral all the time without having the light on all the time. Just cut the blue w/black wire at the relay and ground it. Easy
      Sorry the pics aren't better




      Now it starts in any gear and indicator lights work as they should.

      After purchasing a lightly used 2018 570SP (300 miles on it) I noticed that the display was flashing on and off. I remember reading awhile back that this was a common problem on the 18 model. I can't remember what the fix is. It also turns over slow even though the battery is charged. Anybody know what the fix is on this issue?
      Thanks

      I am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
      Thanks in advance!

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?
