Looking to buy one but wondering if Polaris has addressed any of the common problems
Thanks. Overheating was my main concern. My father just bought a lightly used 2016 X2 and it overheats constantlyOverheating is a non-issue with newer 570’s. IMO far more have a positive experience with the 450 HO/570. If one voltage regulator in 2 1/2 years for 2 bikes excludes me from 570 with NO problems then your asking for too much.
Guess I’m really lucky not having friends like that!Many problems are caused by the operator not understand the machine or using it for something it was not intended for, but everybody get's lucky sometimes and some people are just luckier than others. One guy I know is the luckiest person I ever met. I know he is luckier than me because he can kiss my butt and I can't!
Your right on midwest. Besides the early “heat” issues that have been resolved and some voltage regulators cooking I’m just not seeing it. I’d buy another.I have a 2017 and have had no issues with it. The problem with reading forums is that mostly people go on there looking for answers to problems. For every person who has a problem with "X" there are tens of thousands of people who do not have problems with "X". There is not reason for people to go onto a forum and start a thread detailing the fact they had no problems with their machine. You can search forums for almost anything made and read page after page of problems.
Thanks for that. God. Too bad yamaha doesn’t make a two upAs of Aug 12, 2017; "In the past two and a half years, Polaris has experienced defects across virtually all of its product lines, many of which involve risks of fire. Including the latest recall last week for more than 25,000 Sportsman 570 ATVs and 1,100 RZR 570s, Polaris has now had to recall some 400,000 vehicles." (From The Motley Fool)
The 570 seems to be a problem child. Besides ATV's the 400,000 number includes, snowmobiles, Victory and Indian motorcycles, the Spyder and Slingshot trikes.
