2017 VS 2018 Sportsman 850

Are there any Sportsman nuts here who know the upgrades/changes/differences they made to the 2018 Sportsman 850 SP's? I can spot a few, but curious if anyone knows for sure. Even the dealers don't know haha.

I have a 17 and LOVE it. All my buddies want one now since itís so snappy. The thing hauls and rides amazing. I wish it came with better tires though. The stock ones are super soft and get chewed up pretty quick in my opinion.

The front pinion cover got upgraded from aluminum to steel. Also the 850 got the arched A-arms for 18 ad well. Otherwise I believe they are identical. They redid them in 17 so there was not much done for 18.
