I have been looking into getting a 570 Sports man. I test rode on and I really like the ride, it's probably one of the best riding machines I have been on.

I have been reading a lot of posts from about 2011 to 2013 about axles breaking with no lift and stock tires.

I have no plans on modding. I need something to ride around the property, and can haul a very small trailer with some wood in it. I don't have any mud all my trails are crushed concrete and the farther out they are just wood chip paths.

Do these new 2014 570s have the same problem of axles breaking?

Thanks for your time. Any put is appreciated.

Mud or rocks are where you normally break axles, what you say you will be riding on should be no issue.

I'm pretty nervous about the axle issue because we like going to Superlift park in hot springs AR. And there are a TON of rocks there.

I dont have any rocks or steep hills. Just some some hills. I do have a couple small creeks, but in the summer they dry up.

Hopefully I wont snap an axle. If I do I could upgrade to aftermarket ones down the road.

I walked into a Polaris dealer today wanting a 570 EFI, well after the salesman gave me his pitch he had me test driving a 570 EPS touring model witch was a bit more money. After taking it out for a ride because of the longer wheel base it drives and rides really nice.

Going to wait for the weekend, the dealer I went to is having a sale, I will try to get the best deal.

Nice machine. I was thinking about going to K&W to get one. Did they give you a good deal on it?

I have some acreage up here in Ray and looking for a good machine.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

See Jeff , less than m.s.r.p plus tax....that's it. No extra B.S. like all other dealers. I pass 4 other dealers to see him. Dealers around me will add on tons of extra nonsense. Ie assembly+prep+ doc fees. Lol any thing they can get past ya.

You sure you rode a Sportsman 570 Touring with EPS? I don't think they make those. I know of a 570 Touring, a 570 EPS non-Touring or a 550 Touring that has EPS standard.
