Thanks everybody for the replies and comments, i appreciated it. If only you could tell me if there will be any valve adjustments needed. I dont really ride faster than 30 mph MAX, i neither hold the throttle wide open. Or nothing like that just normal riding. Thanks.

^ What does your owners manual say for service intervals on the valves?

If i remeber right i heard they are a shimunder bucket and i think it says online that it doesnt get off spec that much. My question is does the way you ride your atv effect the valve adjustments intervals?. Since you have sp 500 do you adjust them very frequently?

I had the choice of picking ANY ATV I wanted and did quite a lot of research. I still ended with the 850 XP, over the KQ, Outlander or Yamaha. It boils down to a personal choice more than anything..

People I ride with have the KQ and seem to do just fine, as long as we wait for them on challenging terrain. Otherwise it's absolutely OK and narrower, so it is actually a bit easier to ride through narrow trails...

Yeah... i gotta admit the suspension isnt the same as my polaris 850 its it has more travel and its smoother than the KQ. Every atv has its up and downs, you just gotta choose the one that fits you

On valves you don't need to go by the book on adjustments. My mechanic I use says if it runs fine and starts easy don't worry about the valves. I have a 500X2 with almost 10000 miles and never had an adjustment. I am going to do it at 10000 since he recommended it. If it isn't broke don't fix it.
