I am hopefully getting a new sxs this spring, right now i have a racing yfz for sale and when it goes i will get one. I have watched the rides you guys put on you tube and it looks like a lot of fun. I have family now and racing quads is a little out of the question. need to save money and spend more time with kids LOL

there both nice machines but i like the rzr better because they are smaller, faster and more suitable for where I ride which is smaller trails made for atv's

my biggest question is reliability? under normal wear and tear what has went bad for you guys and in return what has worn really well and not caused problems?

how about clutching systems and reliability?

for mud and play?

the most i would add for performance is maybe a set of 26 in tires and wheels possibly a quiet exhaust ?

like i said i am a wanna be so give me all the info you guys have

thanks

I don't think you can go wrong either way...the Teryx is larger than the rzr and you can haul more. If trail riding is about all your going to use it for I would go with the rzr. Good luck with your purchase and when you get it come on and join us. Some of us are riding most evry weekend.

I have 26" tires on mine...it's a 2010 rzr and has 950 miles on it. No problems at all so far. I grease mine every time I ride and keep the oil changed and airfilter clean. A lot of these guys have a ton of miles on their rzr's and they are still running like the energizer bunny.

It's all about what you want in the machine. If you have a farm or may want to work with it some, I would look at a Rhino, Teryx or even a Commander. If you just want to haul One passenger and play I would go with one of the RZR. If you got kids and wanna take 3 or 4 people, i'd look at the RZR-4. So it's all about what you want in a machine. They are all good!! I do agree that the RZR lineup is more fun and playful, but thats just my opionion.

like others have said its all about what you want to with one. but coming from race quads the RZR would be your best bet for you.

The rzr is a lot more fun when it comes to playing or riding for fun. The rhino and teryx are bigger and don't handle near as well in my opinion but they do haul and tow more if that's what you want. I have a rzr and my father has a teryx but he does nothing with his but clear the snow from his driveway and ride around the neighborhood for the biggest part.

I would also look hard at a Polaris Ranger where if you have 2 kids you can take them both or if it's just your wife you & one child all 3 of you can enjoy a family ride and some camping together.

Pit dog you are right I have not drove yours.You have a unique one that is for sure and one cool looking machine.I drove a new 2009 when they came out it belonged to a guy that was riding Burning Rock with me that day and to make a long story short he drives a RZR S now so that should say something

BIGBEN129-"also do you guys knwo anything about that deal on ebay from berkley springs wv? $9500 for a 2011 teryx? is that tooooo goood to be true?"

If it is at the Polaris Dealer there it is legit. Bought 3 machines there and they are very honest and good to deal with. I ALMOST bought an 2009 Teryx when I got my Ranger 400. It wouldn't seat 3 are I probably would have bought it.

I take my wife and 3yr old son with me in my Ranger 400. Its as close in size to an RZR as I could find. It is also big value for the dollar. I love it and have taken everywhere my buddys atvs have gone.

That said if I didn't have a son, I would be in a RZR. I am looking for a good deal now on a 09 rzr and might pull the trigger if the right oppritunity presents itself.

No boner is crazy. Cand hams suck. Get ya a rzr s. Man I love mine. Get the one with fox podiums. Can't beat it dude. Runs like a champ. I race the Mega series for four years and decided to give it up cause of this rzr s. Cammander is huge. Kawasaki sucks. I ran 05 to 09 kx 250 f. New one every year. Worked at local shop. Trust me go American made. Get a popo, the s width is no problem either. No bone just wants a cand Ham cuz hot rod rhinos bike has more HP and it kills him Haha.

Go drive them all and make your own decision! If you ask a RZR owner they are going to say a RZR,if you ask a TERYX owner they are going to say a TERYX. I have a old RHINO and it does everything I need one to do so you get the point! I believe they are all good machines and they all will give you good service "IF" you take care of them and ride them the way they where designed to be riden. GOOD LUCK!!!

True that cuz I'm a GMC Guy and I'd tell u to get a GM product too Haha. But really the rzr is best for someone like you trust me. Its more sporty without buying shock and mblah blah. If u need the bed around the house the rzr sucks tho. What ever you plan on using it for is the decision breaker. Good lucj

I work for some friends who run a Polaris store & would be glad to put ya in a RzR or Ranger but I don't mind telling any of my friends.......just get what best fits your needs & budget. They're all good machines if you just keepem serviced & don't abuse them. I've ridden with about all the makes & models & found if ya try hard enough you can tear any of them up. Main thing is just get ya something &

i am exhausting all the ways i know how to advertise my bikes so i can get out and get a sxs. i have hit up our local bulletin board, quadzone. the bulletin board around morgantown wv. i guess next is cycletrader and pay for advertising.

you guys know anywhere else to put them out there in public to see?

also i appreciate your advice you all have been giving. which brings me to my next question.

i have not decided, but if a person decided that they needed the bed for utility purposes, which would be a better buy for the guy that likes to play as hard as he works?

Rhino, teryx or ranger 800 xp

polaris claims that it out performs the others, but the only thing i have ever ridden in the old rhino 660 and i thought it was kinda under powered. it had some kind of dual exhaust and 26 inch buzz saw tires. I have very limited experience.

I will admit it was a blast to ride, just made me want one that much more. LOL

Ben all these sxs are likely going to seem huge & a little sluggish compared to what your're use to in those racing quads. I play around the shop on some of our outlaws & them things are wicked quick compared to my rzr.

if you want a bed look at the teryx or ranger. that V twin in the teryx has huge power to unleash if you like to mod your ride. but stock to stock i would go with the ranger. My 2 cents
