Metric is far superior. If it is Fuji powered, the engine will use metric.

And where did you get the idea it was made in the USA?
Now you did it, went and ruined it for him!!!


:rotflmao:

They moved ATV Mfg to Mexico a couple-few years back. Engines are from Fuji Heavy Industries in Japan, stuff from China and Mexico too. But, a lot of the steel tubing is made in the USA, in Minneapolis, MN. Friend works at the plant making the tubing for the XP, RZR, and Ranger lines, and probably the value line too. (Maybe that's where the frame issues come in?)

Not all were moved to mexico. Mine was built in USA.

BUT Mexican built does not mean low quality.

k -n- n filters for the polaris and snowplow in your description. ordered a popular pre-oiled orange air filter and first thing i asked was huh? just the foam part dont cut it. so k&n 's got em nice. how bout whats the top shelf snow plow out there? dont want one that drops by accident when doing 40 mph. endo's arent my idea of having a jolly time. nowadays the average citizen witness's a catastrophe and ck's for wallets and runs. a few out there know the # for 911

Yes the K&N is a PL-1003 Filter. you can find them on eBay for ~$30. i bought the Eagle Plow be cause this one is a Mid Mount, which mounts by the floor boards not right at the nose of the ATV. its supposed to be a decent plow setup. i bougth mine for $470 Shipped from ATV Superstore, ive een them for as low as $430 Shipped on eBay. its shouldnt drop unless your winch fails.
