    This is why I steer clear of modified machines, you never know who did the work. I've been burned like this myself with a snowmobile in the past. It would be even worse if it happened after paying these inflated covid prices.

    You're right, I wouldn't touch anything either that's modified with tractor tires, body lifts and schnorkel tubes 3 feet above the handle bars. That's looking for misery.

    Ya....it sucked....I didn't either bother saying anything... was what it was. I do have a 2006 kodiak 450 that has been nothing but awesome, but my son's starting to ride it. My wife has an 18 canam 450 that's great as it's a two up and il like the room as I'm 6'4. I'll be getting one more this spring, and I'm leaning towards another kodiak 450. Can't beat the fuel consumption, and light enough to throw around......
    This isn't a test run................Enjoy er'.......

    Haha. Stay away From those for sure regardless of brand.
    I’m very happy with my Polaris Sportsman 500. Never had any problems. Great stock tires, lots of storage, high clearance, rear back up lights, smoothest ride. Yamaha or Honda are good Choices also. Good Luck.

    My hunting atv is a 1998 Suzuki King quad 300. 4x4 diff lok, has low and super low range. It could pull a truck if it has enough ground traction. They are great little bikes for getting around the bush, Not so great for any long rides as it doesn't have great suspension. I strictly use it deer/moose/bear hunting. Has 1600km on it and still looks new for over 20 years old.

    Have a honda big red 250 I use as well, Love that old trike.

    I'm hoping to upgrade to a Yamaha Grizzly in the next year or 2, but for now my 1990 honda fourtrax 350 is an unstoppable hunting machine

    My 2007 Honda Rincon has been bulletproof. I have not been easy on it over the years but I learned to take care of any problems as they arise. Mind you, any problem Iíve had with it was my own fault due to laziness. Last summer it would backfire and not start until I realized that I still had the original spark plug in it. Changed the plug and it fired right up and didnít miss a beat. I use it for Plowing my driveway, hunting, ice fishing, and just riding the trails
    Just keep up with maintenance and put gas in it and its fine.

    Great ! thanks for all the feedback !! so far, I will go with entry model/ smaller engines, so far honda trx 420 im leaning towards, great resell value it seems as well, in case I want to upgrade.

    the spot I hunt usually, is around 15km away from main road, but no ATV trails. I can not find out if one is allowed to make its own trail in crown around the thick bush ? or do we need to stick to main ATV trails ?

    another question about 2up seats. are they needed ? does it make it legal to have a passenger ? the way things are going, I think id have to take my gf on most of the rides baiting, or ice fishing.

    I'm not 100% sure but to ride trails or roads legally I thought I read you needed a 2up seat for a passenger and it has to be a factory 2up, not the ones you strap on yourself. I've never done it so could easily be misremembering. Someone with experience with one likely knows better.
