Yamaha vs Honda - ATV's

Ok Im starting another WWYB thread... I just picked up a low hour, clean 2008 Honda foreman FPM. Its a great quad thus far for work and light trail riding... ive put it to use hauling dead trees and such. Anyways, im looking to buy a second quad. I will be using this for camping and hunting in the Ozark mountains, as well as giving me and my girl a second quad so were not 2 up. The plan is to have a quad I can load up a few days worth of supplies (tent, water, some food staple items, my rifle and ammunition) take it from my cabin to a location about a mile away. Its through some pretty heavy inclining brush and muddy trails. Nothing like the mud bog stuff I see on youtube. Its muddy enough to want 4x4 though. then after a few days of camping I will be hauling this stuff back. every now and then I may pick off a deer and need to haul it back to the cabin. Anyways, which machine out of the Rincon, or Grizzly 660 would be more reliable? I dont want efi, so a carbed 03-05 rincon vs a carb'd grizzly 660? Ive also thought about picking up another foreman FPM. however, I like the idea of a comfortable IRS ride the Rincon offers. which ATV would you have no problems trusting it to start up every time?

sorry ahead of time for grammar... typing this out on a smartphone is a chore

Honda utility ATV's FTW. Only issues i've heard with the grizzlys was something not working right while riding through mud. Maybe a belt slip or something? Can't quite remember but it was fairly common with grizzlys. Hondas are just good to go.

If a Honda 4 wheeler could ... It would be down to .


lol

the terrain I will see the most is a lot of rocks/boulders... a few stream crossings (1-3' deep) but mostly sharp inclines and rocks. Im just wondering if the locker on the grizzly will make a big difference. also the low end gearing advantage. The only experience with Yamaha I have was an old Blaster when I was younger. it was a PITA to keep running and I was constantly changing carrier bearings and fighting with it to keep running. Had to rebuild the top end 3 times in the 2 years I had it.

Since I dont remember your reasonings from before, why are you counting out all EFI wheelers? They run so much better then the carb'd vehicles, run the same whether its cold or warm, etc. After having my last couple be EFI, ill never go back.
