750 miles, bought it new from the dealer. Used for dragging brush, hauling wood, trail riding, and and ice fishing.Thanks. I have heard that the spark plug and battery are both cheap. Not deal breakers, but annoying.
How many miles?
I've got some scuffs on the black plastic racks in the front and rear from having trail bags and chainsaws strapped down. They vibrate enough to scuff it. Nothing major.Great. Sounds like it gets some good use.
Do you find the plastics fairly sturdy?
I have a 2002 Sportsman 500 that has been a very good machine. Hoping the new ones are as good. I suspect they have cut some corners (like the plug and battery, plastic thumb throttle) to get the price down, but as long as the mechanicals are still the same quality I would be happy.
Thanks very much for the reply.
No cracks or breaks as of yet!Thanks. Not worried about scuffs - that's going to happen. More concerned with cracking or flimsiness (if that's a word). Good from that standpoint?
I heard that the steering was fairly light on the 450 without power steering. I have also heard that the power steering is over boosted at speed which gives a disconnected feel. I think I would prefer no EPS myself.
