ATV recommendation


Recommended Posts

My 2001 Polaris seems to be dead- it’s not starting again and I can’t seem to find anyone who will work on a machine that old. 
 

Looking for recommendations for a new one. Hoping not to spend a fortune. I really only use it for hunting- transporting stands in/out of the woods, dragging deer, etc. I just want a reliable machine that won’t break the bank.

How’s the reliability and ease of maintenance on the Can Am rigs?

Dealer network?

Probably the starter solenoid..  common issue.  My nephew has gotten very good at fixing  old atv. Parts are cheap on the internet.  Has picked  up and repaired several from the 80s and  90s

Mines a 2006 beat it harder than most will no issues.  Several options  in wny if you need a repair.   I  got mine used and  guy i got it went to a polaris and regrets it every day..  out of the 3  that sit  in the barn  the can am is  grabbed by all and used the most.  Favorite of niece for ease of use and ride.  Honda are great  long lasting machines  but can am   is step above.  2  hondas  here as well . The ride is quite different.

Simple google search...    lot of options 

Best advice  go to a dealer that lets you try multiple  models/ brands..  fortunately by me we have a nice dealership that has an outdoor track you can try them on.. nothing  like a test drive  in real world setting.

Gonna go and look at a dealership tomorrow. From a bit of quick research, I like the reliability reputation of Honda. 

Yamaha is right there with Honda for reliability , do yourself a favor and test ride a Yamaha after the Honda . I think you’ll be surprised .

Yamaha and Honda also make the best outboard boat motors now too
