  1. Polaris Introduces Another Model Year Packed with New Products and Innovation

    Polaris ATV News
    I am guessing that ACE 900 is really detuned to only be making 60Hp. But still I am interested. I wonder if they improved the ergos any, I sat in one of the first 330cc models out and it felt a little cramped in the leg room department. Also wondering if there were any performance long travel...
  2. Polaris Announces New ATVs and RANGERs

    Polaris ATV News
    Wow your absolutely correct. I ad not noticed that before they have pulled it off the XP chassis and moved it back to the old econo chassis. I guess all hope is lost. They had and XP850 X2 for about a year, all it needed was EPS and would have been an owner. They took away the 850 a couple...

    I like that new cluster. Still no love for the XP X2. One of my all time favorite quads was my 08 black LE 800 X2. In 2009 I got spoiled by the new 850 XPs power steering and moved to XP chassis. Then wanted later wanted more power and went back to the Can-am and bought a 1000 XT with EPS...
  4. Polaris Introduces Revolutionary New Single Seat Off-Road Vehicle - The Sportsman ACE

    Polaris ATV News
    I would call it a single seat UTV. A side by side is a 2, 3, or 4 seat UTV. I would say since it is configured and operated with a steering wheel that it would class it as a UTV rather then an ATV.
  5. 2014 Polaris ATV Lineup

    Polaris ATV News
    I had a 12' Touring EPS 850 LE, very nice 2up quad, it is just not the same as the X2s. I thought I could make it work and do all the things I had done with my 08' X2, but the utility features of the bed, and convertible back seat of the X2 were so much more functional for me. I am going to...

    That maybe so, but they don't make an 850 X2 anymore, they rolled out a 550 XP X2 non EPS for 2010 then for 2012 maybe it was 11' they added the 850 X2, still no EPS, then in 2013 they only offered the 550 in an X2. Now for 14 it finally got the EPS but the 850 has not been available since 2012.

    I see they finally put EPS in an X2, now if they would just put the 850HO in it, I would be an owner. A couple years ago they offered an 850 in a X2, but no EPS, now they are offering EPS, but no 850. LOL I guess they are just not ready for me to buy a new one. LOL I had a 2008 800LE stealth...
  8. 2012 Polaris ATV Line Up

    Polaris ATV News
    The Polaris 850 non HO I seem to recall they claimed made 70hp when it came out, I dyno 2 of them and what made it to the ground was around 44 the Can-am 800R had a claimed 67 but what made it to the ground was closer to 50. Same dyno same type dyno street tires. Big heavy tires can kill HP...
  9. Polaris Announces 2012 Limited Edition ATVs

    Polaris ATV News
    I hope, they finally bring out a 850 HO X2 with EPS. They offered a 850 X2 in 2011 but it was without EPS then dropped it in 2012, I really thougth they would bring it back late in the year with EPS as an LE along with the ones listed here. I guess not, now I am just hoping to see it in 2013.

    Polaris ATV News
    Yep that is correct. It's not the most effecent for power delivery, from what I have read anyway. But it allows for major improvements in the riding positoin. Note the major width differences in the seating and footwells of the 500 non XP vs the 550 XP. Personally I like everything about the...

    Thats it Extream Perfomance = XP There are two core version the 550XP and 850XP The 500,800s are not XPs. The XPs use the new chassis with the motors mounted sideways in the chassis and they have a-arm front suspensions. The 500 and 800s use the old chassis, all be it they did get new...
  12. 2012 Polaris ATV Line Up

    Polaris ATV News
    Did I mis it or is there not an EPS 850 x2 again this year? Polaris is getting pretty sneaky when they go ahead and rate there 2012 line up on CARB then later come back and change it. At least this indicates they will be changing there ratings. They rated a 2012 850 the same as there 2011...

    Polaris ATV News
    ya, if your a side by side fan you got 900 rzr this year. but for quad fans last year had quite few changes so I have a feeling this year will be somewhat less then special for polaris atvs. I hope I am wrong. With can-am really stirring the pot this year with there new models.

    The one listed up there is an XP ??? CARB has the 2012 ratings for the 850s and no change in the engines are listed. Not to say they won't offer a XP900 or something that will help them keep up with Jones(CAN-AM). I just hope they finally offer an 850 X2 with EPS .

    Good to know they are good tires, I just need to figure out if my touring can clear them. What tires are you running?

    You might be able to get away with running the 9" wide tires on all 4 corners. I was also thinking maybe cerros which are said to be a true 26" vs say the bighorns which say 26 on the side wall but specs state they are 26.5. The tires that Came on mine were 26s that seem to measure more like 25s.

    I think my Buddy fishy went with those after he tried the 26.5s and found out they wouldn't work on a touring. I want to say he still had some rubbing. I think he tried some things with the shock setting to get all the hight he could. I will go find his post from a few months ago, it was on...

    He said in the first post he has a touring model. Tires that run larger then the oem tires can be problem. Like Bighorns won't clear the rear foot wells of an 11 Touring, neither will the PBs. I have the BH on my OEM rims and they hit the rear foot wells, a buddy has the Pitt bulls, and has...
  20. Heard some rumblings on the 2012's

    ATV General Discussion
    I am finding the 850HO a bit hard to believe, since they have there 2012 HP rating posted on the CARB website and they seem to be unchanged for 2012, I could almost believe a 950 XP more then rumored HO versions of the 2012 models.
