I'm a prior Polaris 570 owner. I switched to a 700 base model last week. Change is good! Lookin forward to talking with you all and learning from you.

I upgraded the headlights last week and put on a winch today. Wheels and tires (interco black mamba lite), rad relocate,exhaust and fuel regulator are all something I would like to purchase. What do you all suggest?

How would you compare the power between your Kodiak 700 and the Sportsman 570?

Why didn't ya buy another polaris? There isn't anyone around my area has one,I know that seems strange but,not one. I read all the reviews about them and they seem to be mostly bad.Was yours reliable? The 570 have good power? I think polaris makes nice looking atv's and from what I read they seem to make a lot of horsepower and a nice comfortable ride. Why the switch? Im just bored and curious sitting here drinking coffee on this fine Sunday morning..

The 570 sportsman and the 700 Kodiak/Grizzly are both rated at about 48hp. I rode a friends 570 once and hated it. I didn’t like the suspension or the engine breaking or the way it power to the ground.

I believe the sportsman is rated at 44 and kodiak is rated at 48. The CanAms outlanders are 48 hp.
I’d like to think kodiak 48 hp is low end trail usable power and the can am is 48 hp of high end, vtwin power for fields or open gravel roads.

I stand corrected, you are right. You may find this interesting...

Awesome find, man I can’t imagine a sportsman 1000 😂
One of my best friends who has wanted a 4 wheeler for years. Just went out and bought a sportsman 1000xp. But he doesnt even end up on the trails. Im sure its fun, my 708 is just a tool for me to enjoy the wilderness and have fun. At 480 hrs. Ive just begun.

I think his 1000xp is at about 12 hours lol o_O
