My bike has never came home on the hook, can't say the same about the griz/brutes I ride with.


Try ride or at least sit on each for a bit and see if ones a better fit, and remember the bars have some adjust-ability front to back.
I would lean to the 850, more power is nice when you need it.

I traded my Yamaha Grizzly in for a Sportsman because I was sick of fixing it after every ride.

you two are definitely in the minority... the evidence is all over the place. I have spent lots of time online and checked out all the forums and have owned every brand under the sun except arctic cat and polaris' quality is STILL not up to par and they have the nerve to start cutting corners when they were never top quality to begin with. it will be interesting to see how that 570 holds up for you, its not looking probable that it'll be trouble free. when you have it 5 years then talk to me.. hopefully it holds up great, but after all that ive seen and read there is no way id have the utmost confidence in it. Polaris and can-am can be cutting edge all they want, but if they don't hold up what good is it?

you really need to do some more research and see the problems the older models are littered with. also, is there a post you haven't made on this forum yet where you haven't bashed the newer machines and keep making the false claim that the older models have less issues than the new ones??? you keep throwing it out there that there is all of this "evidence" that the newer models have more issues because all of the posts that are related to issues compared to the amount of posts relating to issues with the older ones. that is like going to a car forum and saying the older cars are better because there aren't as many people talking about issues with the models from the early 90s.

hell, is there a post that you've ever made saying anything good at all about polaris on here?? you sound like you're on a mission to whine about the new models and down polaris all together. one of the things that you also fail to realize is that there is at least 10 polaris atvs out there for every 1 atv from any other manufacturer. polaris has been dominating in this market for years and considering the number of units sold, you will see more people posting about the issues they have. it doesn't mean that they are any worse than any other brand. if we were to follow your logic, then those TVs with name brands such as Element must be better than Samsung, LG, Vizio etc. because we never see a large group of people complaining about issues with their off brand TVs.
