New '18 1000XP

Just picked up a 2018 Sportsman 1000XP. I've had my 2005 Sportsman 700 since 2012 and its been a great ATV but have recently been battling some 4wd issues so I found a '14 570 w/eps that I picked up about 6 months ago and it was a night and day difference being fuel injected and eps so much smoother and comfortable. Well after riding it a bit and exhaust and tune later, it just wasn't cutting it. I desired more. So I went to my local dealer and checked out the 850SP. Then saw the left over stock '18 1000 so we were able to work out a deal on that. Got it home and what a difference. After the break in I was able to open it up and this is exactly what I was needing. This quad gets down and does so effortlessly. I ended up selling the '05 700 in a day after listing it and my wife wanted to keep the 570 for her. So I'll probably be pulling off the HMF exhaust and tune here shortly and putting it back to stock. I look forward to the next outing to Crosby Tx Xtreme offroad. Here a couple pics of the new bike and its compadres!

I switched it over yesterday just to see and it stood straight up and scared the hell out of me. I think standard is just fine.

Thanks bud. Yeah no doubt the 570 is a great bike. Very fun to ride and moved the 28s around just fine. Just lacked the speed factor I was looking for.

LOL, You're explaining more all the time cutter, why you keep wearing out suspension components.
