Looking at upgrading to a newer machine and am wondering if there are any quirks or flaws with any years of the 570’s? What year did they start selling it? I am very familiar with the 97-05 sportsmans. Completely restored 3 and currently working on a ‘01 6x6. Only ridden/owned 500’s and a 335. Would go after an 800 or 850, but the newer 570’s come up regularly and are pretty affordable with only 1k miles or so. Have heard of some 570’s overheating, but not sure if it a year range or Why they overheat. Thanks.

570: 2014-present
First few years had heat issues with heat melting seat fasteners, heat coming out mostly right leg and fuel tank with fuel being heated. By 2017 all but resolved with added heat shielding and protection. So even the first versions can get the shielding if they already haven’t. 2019 saw an”upgraded” voltage regulator. Earlier VR’s had issues. I’m sure others have had other issues, I’ve got 2 2017’s and 3 years, 2 bikes w/1 bad VR! :D

I have a 2018 570 EPS. I use it in the summer for chores daily and use it for ice fishing in the winter couple times a week. Never had a problem. I don’t mud buggy with it or catch some sweet jumps. Its just a tool and transportation to me.

I would think you could buy a voltage regulator for the newer machine and use it on the older ones too.

CycleWorx is $300.00 guaranteed for life VR while RicksMotorSportsElectrics is 186.00!
If you look at new upgraded Polaris VR I think VR+Polaris Harness is around $230.00.

Anyone know the power comparison between a 450ho, 500, 500ho, and a 570? I have heard the 450ho pulls right along side with a 500. I have only ridden a 01 500. Currently looking at a 08 500ho efi Special edition and a ‘14 570 efi. Both have about a 1100 miles and are $4300 and $4600. For sale by the same person. Personally the 570 seems the no brainer unless i am missing something. Thanks

Both of those are way overpriced. Ones 12 years old the 6 years old. I bought my son’s 2017 450 HO brand new for $4300.00. What state you in? My buddy got a 2019 last year $5200. OTD.

Just sold my 97 Arctic cat bearcat 454 With 1370 miles for $2700 in less than a day. Atv/utv are crazy popular up here. Idaho is a very orv friendly state. No regulations or street legal crap required. Can ride them on any main road except the highway and then the state provides a “right of way” so you can ride it on the very wide shoulders. And yes, gorgeous!

Been here 7 years. Grew up in central Washington state. Was prettier there cause all the jagged mountains surrounding the town, but WA is NOT what i would call atv friendly at all. I haven’t trailered my sleds or quads anywhere since we moved. Just roll out the driveway and up the mountains. Literally a dream come true for me.

570 has more torque than a 500 and will do about 65 mph max.

We just traded in both of our 2015 570 EPS's for 2020's (same). The 2015's ran great with only one minor problem (pinched overflow gas tube). There was misfiring with one of our brand new 2020's, and after a month in the shop and factory involvement, it is fixed. We had more than 20 posts about this, but the fix was BOTH a throttle body and ECU. Before you buy one, if you buy one, sit in neutral in the parking lot, and gradually throttle it up to 5000 rpm. Make sure no misfires. This was also a problem with on on the showroom floor. Good power and suspension. And, we often run more than 100 miles on a tank.
