I had a 2000 5oo sportsman up until last year. Cant tell the miles, but i put that machine to the test ALL the time. rolled it,(2X) down a mountain, used it for hunting, buried it in mud and muck, crossed creeks that most would only call a river and wouldnt dare try. Hauled wood, pulled logs, the list could go on. Rode that machine more than my ol ......well.you get the picture. That was my first polaris and i was sold . I use a quad like its a truck. I always made it a point to change all the fluids each spring without fail and sometimes i would do it three to four times. I went thru two sets of tires before i finally got some real mud cleets. Cant remember the brand though. Just like anything you have the good and the bad but its always..... always got to do with the maintanence on your part. Cant be lazy about it. treat it right and it will love you back.
