Kind of a new member. Not many posts but I got a new ride!

I recently picked up my new 2019 Sportsman 850 SP Premium. I absolutely LOVE the new paint and fluorescent yellow stripe! I had to swap my tracks from my 2018 850, wire in my front light bar, rear lights, switches, hand/thumb-warmers. But it was ready for our last snow storm.

Hereís a few pictures of the build so far. I ordered a VIP AIR windshield that should be here Wednesday. Should look good, as itís painted to match the machine. Thanks for looking.

Curious, why you swapped for one year newer of the same bike?

Love the matte black btw!

I had a friend of a friend call me out of the blue asking to buy my 2018. Sold it with 475 miles for exactly what I had invested in it. So I figured why not drive a brand new one! Besides, I like the 2019 Magnetic Grey Metallic color much better.

(Side NoteMight sound crazy, but this one seems to shift FAR smoother than the 18í... Any options on that???

Looks good, I have an 18' in red (growing on me but wouldn't be top pic) and I really like that black/yellow. Hopefully everything swapped over easily enough!

Thanks, yeah everything fit like a glove. I almost went with a red one last year but went with the matte grey with red stripes instead. This was my 18í. Have you had any issues with your machine? How many miles do you have on it?

I don't have much on it, only got it this winter and haven't had a chance to get out too much. Probably something like 50 miles on it right now. So far so good though
