Looking at side by sides. OB opinions



Strictly for fun. I don't own a farm and they are much more comfortable for long rides than any atv.

Leaning towards a 2 seated polaris 900 xp razor.

Any of you guy/gals own a can am or arctic cat wildcat. Both are 1000s but also a few inches wider. Would rather avoid not being able to fit through gates up here in the northeast. Explanation: some trails have posts at the entrance and don't allow vehicles over a certain width.

Thoughts?

I think both the can am and wildcat are belt drives. Razor is shaft. Belts suck IMO. My mud pro always gets moisture in there. Can never figure out where it gets in.

This is the correct answer. If you have the money I MAY would look at the Can Am, but I don't think the pay off would be worth the extra money. Just say no to the Arctic Cat. They are complete turds. I really don't see how they stay in business.

You will love the RZR.

Razor is belt driven as well.

I think you'd be fine with any of the choices you mentioned.

I am on my second mud pro right now. I goes through any hole stock. Cats are not a bad bike. All atvs have something that someone doesn't like. For instance why can't Honda put IRS on their 500 foreman. It would be the best bike in its class hands down. Might be already

I will clarify. In my experience with ACs, they are complete turds. At mud nats, you never see one show up two years in a row.

Yeah, you can run up the money being spent on them in a quick hurry. I wish I had back all the money I've spent on ATV's in the past.
