    Re: Need advice on new quad pick

    I see they still make a 2016 model. You can get them in electric shift or auto ( no belt)

    i know a guy that has a can am 800 and a 420 with 14,500 km's! He hardly ever rides the can am he loves that little Honda and he's a big guy. The thing seems to get stuck less than the 800.

    If your going to play in the mud you want a locking front diff and I like the Can Am because it locks it's self. Your son just has to drive it not worry about locking the front diff. You will want it to have power steering as well because it will keep the handle bar from kicking on him. I have a 2012 800 max Can Am and haven't had it long but do like it.

    Re: Need advice on new quad pick

    I have a 14 Grizz EPS and it is an awesome machine it does not have the power of a Can-Am but is lighter cheaper and more reliable.I have 3 friends that all have Outlander 1000's we all bought at about the same time and all have had to do repairs but me. On the trails I have no issues with keeping up goes through everything as well as their Can-Am's obviously on a road when you can open them up the Ca-Am's are faster and are probably better mud bogger's. As others have said Honda's are more of super reliable work machine. If you want something a little smaller the Kodiac 450 is a good choice I have a 14 EPS for my wife not much top end but lots of bottom end power and is smaller lighter and cheaper.

    3 of us have the 420's, and the other folks have 500's.

    We get by on them as we don't get out much at 6 too 10.000 kms per year.

    Frugal priced with oil changes once a year. Once in awhile we do brakes or a wheel bearing.

    Yuppers, Honda's are "farm" quads only. Ha.

    Better mud boggers is arguable since the canam's are heavier and have less ground clearance. I find that my Grizzly is better in the mud than my 1000 with the same size tires.

    Hey, no one's knocking the hondas (I've seen them go anywhere and everywhere) but they are definately not near as fun to ride as some of the alternatives.

    Re: Need advice on new quad pick

    I realize this is an old Post but the Rincon 680 does very well in Cold Lake. I go out with friends that have 1000cc units with huge Gorilla tires and they always seem to get stuck. My Rincon with 27" Zillas seems fairly versatile. It mostly comes down to where you drive any ATV, but from top end, to mud, to road, to balance and climbing the 680 Rincon isn't the best in any category but is usually one of the better in all categories. It is extremely light and versatile ATV easy to get out of the muck. I caught a tree last year an my front end was twisted up. I paid 20 bucks for a tie rod and had it installed for 60 dollars. Seems cheap to maintain.
