My last ATV was a 2010 Honda rancher at with IRS and EPS and that only had one rear brake also. Your lucky you didn't buy that ATV because when you have to change the brake rotor you have to take the rear drive shaft out because the brake disc is mounted around the rear drive shaft just behind the engine. Atleast this one you only have to take the hub off and pop out the studs to do it.

I thought we were talking about sportsmans? I never mentioned the ace. I said the 850 has 1 and the 1000 has 2 rear brakes. Which is 100% true. So explain to me how I am wrong.

Interesting tid-bit. Looks like they changed their marketing schmoo for 2017.

The 2015 and 2016 Sportsman 850 SP specs list "Single Lever 4-Wheel Hydraulic Disc with Hydraulic Rear Foot Brake" while the 2017 Sportsman 850 SP specs list "Single Lever 3-Wheel Hydraulic Disc with Hydraulic Rear Foot Brake"

(edit: appears they made the same change for all the models with the 3-caliper setup.)

I wonder if they got hammered for inaccurate advertising. You have to admit, it is kind of misleading, even if it's true. (edit:The other, more likely possibility is that they're trying to highlight another "enhanced feature" for the higher end models, since the '17 1000 still says "Single Lever 4-Wheel Hydraulic Disc with Hydraulic Rear Foot Brake")

I always thought it was just the XP line that had the 4 caliper setup (could be wrong on that.) My '15 Touring 1000 has 4 calipers.

On Polaris.com, the Ace is referred to as it's own category. As is the RZR, General, Ranger, sportsman atv, and finally Ace. Nowhere on their webisite is the Ace referred to as a sportsman. The only place I can find the Ace in the same category as a sportsman is on polarispartshouse.com. The first year of the Ace, it was referred to as a sportsman ace atv by Polaris. But I think it somewhere between a utv and an atv. You could be right and I could be wrong. Doesn't really matter as the Ace is a "different" animal in the off road world. I don't believe any of the other manufacturers even make one? Id on't know why the Ace would have 2 rear brakes either, unless it is offered with turf mode.

Didnt read thru the lunicey, anybody mention rear end is locked, so one hrake or two brakes is going to mean zilcth because 1 will lock up the rear end anyhow. Turf mode machines, sure i can see the benefit of 2 brakes when rear end is uncoupled.

Just think of all the 12,000lb monster trucks racing as fast as they can, omg, th only have 2 brakes, how do they stop....how do w stop this madness since alot of heavy equipment will come with 1 central brake...omfg
