    My gfs dad had a 14 570 with EPS, i loved it. I really like polaris but i think i may go with a brute force 750.

    Yes it is!! They are pretty powerful too. The reason I’m thinking about that over a polaris is because it’s not as big and bulky.

    i have always love the scramblers like you have though.

    The 400cc 2 stroke in mine is made by Fuji, I think.

    The wheel & strut bearings were shot. The seals had failed, allowing the bearings to rust. These bearings are suppose to be running in an oil bath...

    A arm bushings replaced and one side bolted together. The a arm bushings were actually still good. Somebody must have lost the correct spacer for one side, so they put one in that was about 1/16" too small, which is what was causing the play in that side. The new rebuild kit was only $13. Some people...

    hope you have better luck with urs. I had one bout 10 years ago, and was the biggest pile of crap. I've had a handful of Yamaha's, now I have Can Am, and won't have anything else, cause nothing else compares. Nothing like have 100 horses on 4 wheels lol. I had 2 Renegade 1000s, now I have an Outlander XXC which is a GNCC type machine.
