  1. XP cover with large rear cargo box/seat

    ATV Gear and Gadgets
    I had a nice Polaris trailerable cover for my 2012 Sportsman XP and it was awesome. Added a large rear seat/carbo box (Wes Comfort) and now, of course, the cover no longer fits. I'd like to just leave the seat on there, but miss the snug cover, particularly going in on muddy/sandy/dirty roads...

  4. 2015 850 vs 850SP

    ATV General Discussion
    Hi gang, What are the differences between the 850 and the 850SP. I see the rims, eps, and ADC. Are there any other differences? These machines have the same body, engine orientation, and frame right? Does anyone have a 2015 850 non-SP? Thanks! Looking to pick up an 850 non-SP this week and...

    ATV Purchasing and Price
    I have been researching new utility quads for weeks now and sold my 2005 sportsman a week ago. I was looking mainly at Yamaha, Can-Am and Polaris. I've always had good luck with Polaris but thought I might try something else. After doing extensive research i was still undecided. I really didn't...

  8. Back rack / suspension not level

    Polaris XP
    I just bought the ATV on Saturday. It's a used 2012 850 XP. I noticed today that the ATV is not sitting level when looking at it from the rear. When measuring from the plastic down to the tire, there's about an inch and a half difference between the sides. The right side is lower than the...

    Hi everyone. Just bought a Sportsman XP 850 EPS yesterday. It's a used 2012 model. Only had 636 miles on it. Couldn't pass up the price. This isn't my first ATV. I had a Sportsman 700 Twin back in 2002. I got rid of it about after a year. I'm glad to be back on an ATV. Can't wait until...

  14. 850XP stock exhaust vs. Big Gun exhaust.

    Polaris XP
    I have spent the last two weeks trying to decide which exhaust to go with. I'm pretty sure I read every thread on here and watched every video on youtube concerning aftermarket exhaust. My buddy just ordered and installed the big gun slip on and after hearing his I couldn't pass up the sound or...

    I've got a 2011 sportsman 850xp. When I first got it it idled between 1150-1200 rpms cold and when it warmed up. I replaced stock exhaust with hmf swamp xl. Also put 28" tires on. That's all I've done to it. I've put about 35 hours on it since I've made the upgrades. I've changed the oil and oil...

    How I ended up with a polaris 850 xp. The word overkill is an understatement with me usually. I needed something I plow my driveway, by the way I am from Ontario, Canada, it is maybe 3 times the size of a standard subdivision house (still small compared to some of the country homes out there). I...
