yes, when they are jumped (read: physically jumped into the air) the rear subframe where the lower rear a-arm mounts to the to a tab welded to the frame usually will start to break away from the subframe itself....look for that, its quite noticeable...I have seen two or three hawkeyes like this, had to replace one fo the subframes myself. All 3 owners admitted to jumping the quad though, numerous times.

Yes,
I agree.. The one I just bought came with the new sub frame,,I put it on with the previous owner. The new sub frame was beefed up. compared to the original one. I have read Polaris knew there was a issue..Other than that it works for me so far.

He had ordered it from the Polaris dealer in Bardstown, Ky. $245.00 +tax.
You can tell a huge difference in the original & new one. Not to bad putting it on, he had the old one off already.

its 3200 and he is trying to get financing. its a hell of a christmas present for his 14 year old daughter. it looked good to me. i took it for a ride and surprised the hell out of me how much power it has. only thing i didnt really like was overall size of quad too small for me

Sounds good,
I bought it for the girls, but I ride it most of the time. Fits me pretty well for just tooling around.
