    Really, have an 8 year old Arctic Cat 500. Replaced original battery and oil changes is all its cost, nothing broken or worn. Haul tons of wood every year and trail riding. Pretty cheap to maintain for nearly a decade

    And I've had no problems with my 2016 Can-Am.
    This thread is like the Ford/Chevy/Dodge debate.

    I picked up a 1990 honda about 5 years ago, plan on doing all the fluids in the summer this year but other than that just oil changes and new tires. She's never let me down other than a couple fuel pumps which were cheap replacement

    I love my 1994 Polaris Sportsman 400. The old 2 smokes had lots of low end.

    Whenever someone starts picking on Polaris I tell them "lets see how your 25 year old quad runs?"

    I had a neighbour that had a used Honda and bought a new Arctic Cat and both did really well so we ended up finding a gently used Arctic Cat and have had nothing but problems with it. We regret not holding out for a Honda or Suzuki.

    We had one fella in the hunt camp that had an Arctic Cat. We had to load in on the trailer and take it to the dealer twice to get it fixed so he could continue hunting. He brought a Polaris the next year. HaHa..

    I also had a friend who had a Suzuki and all he did to it was put gas in. He started having problems once it hit 13000km but that's to be expected.
