Locked Diff = no need for 2 calipers. Makes the machine lighter, fewer parts to maintain, and 0 loss in performance. I'm at a loss as to why you would like it less because of this...

Yea I'd say the ranger needed them as its probably 2 to 3x heavier.

Nobody has mentioned engine braking. I have very rarely used my brakes on this quad and I've been riding through snowy mountains and let the engine take me down. One rear brake isn't a factor at all.

X2 - I doubt I will ever have to replace brakes on my 850 because of wear.

The Ranger has turf mode. Turf mode is a totally different rear differential that has the ability to unlock the rear diff when Turf Mode is activated allowing the rear axle to act like an unlocked differential. in this situation, 2 calipers are needed otherwise, the one brake would pull the machine in that direction when it activates.

The Rangers dry are all less than 2x the weight of the 570 dry. This doesn't include the crew models.

However, they have two calipers because the ranger's all have turf mode.

Both my 2005(400) and 2012(800) only have one rear brake..... as others have stated 1 rear is more then enough (as 70+% of all braking is done by the front brakes on all vehicles)!!

Stop looking for reasons.... like it and keep it or hate it and sell/trade it!! Easy enough!

Funny enough my 2009 Sportsman 850 XP had dual rear brakes. Then for 2010+ it had a single. I believe the 2-ups have twin rear brakes though.

80% of the stopping power is on the front wheels. Especially once you apply brakes and start slowing down, it shifts all of the weight to the front. One brake is more than enough to lock BOTH of the rear wheels. What more do you want than locked? If you dont believe me try this -- get going about 15-20MPH -- use only the foot brake to engage only the rears. It will take a long time to stop. Try again with the hand-lever and you will be quickly stopped.

The brakes are not the limiting factor, the traction is.

Heck, even try the above experiment on pavement. Front brakes are what stop these machines.
