We have had a couple of Sportsman 500's (99 & 03) as far as I'm concerned there junk. For being that friggin heavy they sure could beef up the driveline and the brakes. Then theres the plastic racks/bumpers that are good for nothing. They break way to easy even though they claim to be "unbreakable". I know we sure were'nt easy on them, but who is? We buy them to use them. My uncle has a 600 twin, and its been in the shop numerous times for engine repairs. Sure they get up and go, and have power, but the rest of the quad just isn't up to snuff, at least for us anyways. The neighbor has a 660 grizzley and they love it, and they beat on it just as hard as we do to our Sportsman. Oh BTW, ours has been sitting in the corner of our shed now for about a year, because they want like $2500 to fix it, it pulls to the right really hard. They said it was a broken axle, and they fixed it for $600, but as soon as we unloaded it, my brother took it up the road and almost rolled it because of how hard it pulled....
Next one I'm getting will be a Rhino, no more Polaris junk
