Pretty sure they have made some changes to the frames for 14. leave the axles alone, id rather blow apart an axle than a diff. if they could drop 75 to 100 pounds off the machine that would be nice, but I don't see that happening.^^ i agree with this.
Beefed up axles, stronger frames, and weight reduction would have been better.
I highly doubt you'll see Polaris do a mud specific ATV from the factory. and I'd rather an axle brake than a diff, or trans. Leave the axles as the weak link. It's a smart design.Coming from sport machines I love this! I have an 850 sportsman and def agree that power is already pretty darn good. Most people come off my machine with white knuckles, haha. I def would like to see more focus on beefed up axles, transmissions, and diffs. All great machines and I can't wait to see what else comes to the table. Polaris needs an XMR style machine!!! Snorkel and raised radiator from the factory.
