I am thinking about picking up a 500 series scrambler. I have the itch to jump and play in the ATV park near my house. Rather than strip off the seat and cargo stuff and use my 1000 touring, it seems like I might be better off to pick up a 2005 to 2010 unit.

Will I still have fun on a carb non EPS machine for this application?

As a Scrambler 500 4x4 owner from brand new in '04, til I traded it in '11, I can say that without at least a clutch kit and possibly pipe/rejet(I had both) they are quite anemic in stock form for any sort of aggressive action. A clutch kit is a MUST.

I liked my Scrambler. Never had any major problems with it. Rear brake cylinder died, which is very common of that generation. Other than that, no mechanical problems.

If you want a playful 4x4, there are better choices in my opinion, depending on your budget. And if you were gonna get a 2x4, there are many better choices of sport quad than a Scrambler.

Recommendations for other playful 4x4 sport quads?
Can-Am Renegade 800 if you want fast & comfortable. And the 1000 if you want stupid fast and comfortable.

Neither of which require any mods to have a blast on. Both rip in stock form.

Do they all have EPS from 2010 on? How do they compare to the 2013+ scramblers?

No, EPS isn't standard on all. Standard on XXC model, optional on base model.

Never ridden a newer gen Scrambler, so I can't comment.
