First ATV

Im looking into getting my first ATV. Ive been riding them all my life but ive never had one of my own. I also am not up to date on good 4x4 quads. The guy ive been riding with said "Go big or go Honda" so im looking to go big . That being said im looking at Renegade 800-1000. Any suggestions or comments? Any other quads I should look into? im NOT lifting anything I get! I will get good mudding tires and possibly Snorkel it but thats about it.

I am a very experience quad rider.

HONDA quads are a pain in the to work on.
GO Yamaha...either 450 4x4 if on budget or get the big Grizzly.

I can guarantee you that the Yamaha can take waaaay more than the average man can throw at it and just keep going.
Tlak to badassvmax at Houston Motorsports for a deal.

Polaris Scrambler 850 with EPS. Hands down the best quad I have rode. I work for a dealer and have tried every atv and utv so I have a pretty good idea of of the pros and cons of all models. If you want fun... The Scrambler 850 is your machine.

I have a suzuki king quad 700 and a Honda Rincon 650... only down fall on the rincon is it needs lower gears for the mud.
The king quad will pull the front tires off the ground no problem... but ive had all sorts of electrical problems out of it.
Can-ams are expensive if you wanna drop the cash on it they can be worth it...
Grizzlys will take a beating... ive never owned one but a friend did... he did snap alot of cv shafts on 26s.
I have two friends with brute force's and they love them.

The canam will be a great bike for you. Great platform with a wonderful motor that has tons of power. If planning to get a mud bike then the canam excels at that also. No gear reduction needed, no wet clutch to have issues with and tons of aftermarket support. I have owned the Polaris and the canam bikes, I currently have a rzr and I would go canam over Polaris any day. The fit and finish of the Canam is leaps over the Polaris. Polaris does have a real 4wd but on the atv's you can work it.

I personally wouldnt run a quad with power steering.....lose too much feel in the steering. That being said, I have a RZR with PS and will never buy another SxS without PS.

I love my RZR, but have been looking at picking up a second quad just because its easier to get around then the RZR. Its been a toss up between the Renegade and the new Scrambler. Personally, my bias is towards Polaris, but the CanAms make crazy power with just an exhaust and tuner. Plus that Ren looks mean with a lift and some 31's on it.

I talked to the owner of a powersports shop in Silsbee. He sells Honda, Kawasaki and polaris. I asked which he recommended.
He said, "the polaris's are good liking and the Hondas have great fit and finish, but the Kawasaki's are bullet proof".
He also said he sees polaris in his service dept 5 to 1 over the other 2. He said second choice would be Honda. That they just run forever and you can't break em. But he still said the kawis are, IHHO (in his humble opinion) the ones to go with.
