Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

Since the 570 forum has been slow the past few days, Id figure I would throw a topic in that maybe we can discuss a bit?

I'm in the market for a SXS and have had the itch for over a year now.. I had my mind, heart, and soul set on a 570 because my girlfriend and I would only be putting around Ohio/Pa/WV trails by ourselves, not needing to show off for anyone just enjoying the time to ourselves.

However, I recently been researching the Teryx 800 2 seater, and it know it's a different class of machine being a sport/utility vs a sport (Rzr) but it has loads of storage which I like. I don't find it as cosmetically pleasing as the Rzr but looks aren't everything... atleast that's what my girlfriend tells me, and thank god cause I'm only ugly mother. LOL

What are your guys' thoughts between the two just for crawling the eastern trails for a week or two at a time..

Re: Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

My additional thought being,
I can get a lightly used 570 for around 7500-8000 but the I need to buy skids, doors, bumper, tires, shocks. And that puts be around the 11,500 mark after its said and done, where the Teryx already has those, with loads more storage.. just ugly as sin.

Just trying to express my thoughts to maybe help others people's thoughts on this.

Re: Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

Teryx is built to last. Before we got in rzrs we all had either rhinos or teryxs. They are tough as nails. The 570 is a great machine for what you are wanting to do with it. Both are not gonna ride that great due to the lack of travel. Less up keep on the teryx for sure. My dad rides a teryx and never turns a wrench on it. Just check the oil and ride. 570 will have a bit more of the "fun factor" due to it being all sport. I like the teryx for the same reasons you do . It just doesn't fit my style of riding

Thank you so much for the input bud! I still have a month or two to figure things out.. I just want to make sure I'm 100% before spending this kind of money, you know?

Re: Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

I have a 2012 teryx4 and have owned rhinos, rzr800, canam maverick and now an X3. My T4 is built stout and does not need the suspension beef up parts that the polaris and canam sxs's need to bring them to the level of the Teryx and Rhino. The frame on the Teryx is 2x thicker and built better than the others. This does make it heavier and less sporty than the rest.

The 4wd system on the Teryx is a POSITIVE locking 3 wheel drive then 4 wheel drive by turning a switch on the dash. The front wheels dont need to slip or spin like the Polaris or Canam units.

The ground clearance on the Teryx is greater than most and it has steel rocker sliders not plastic body panels. The Teryx will accept 29" tires by using Super Atv arched arms. This will allow you to drive over a 5 gallon bucket and clear without hitting it.

If you want a low seating and positive locking differentials i would look at the Artic cat wildcat trail version. If you leave the AC motor alone it will survive just fine.

If you can live with the higher seating in the Teryx i would go that route since its a great stout trail machine that tops out at 51mph and 62ish with an aftermarket cdi box.

Im not a fan of the Polaris 800/570 platform as it very thin walled frame, rear differential low to ground, and the Hilliard clutch style front differential.

drive fast and take chances.

Awesome feed back!! Thanks a ton! So it sounds like you were pretty impressed with the Teryx? Think it would be a good, more reliable machine to spend a week or two camping out on the trail?

Any sxs from the big manufacturers would fit your week camping trip. The Teryx would leave you more room to carry stuff and at the end of a few years of use would need the least amount of repair work.

There is something about being the lightest and fastest machines out there. They skimp on things just to keep the weight down. I have a new X3 xrs and it has its weaknesses just like any other sport sxs.

drive fast and take chances.

Re: Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

Are you looking for something 50 inches wide or does that matter? If 50 inch machine is what you're looking at, you're limited. You have a couple flavors of RZR, the Trail Cat and the Pioneer 500. Unbiased opinion, the RZR is the better option for aftermarket and comfort from lower riding position and leg room.
The Honda is a really nice machine though. Smaller Honda motor, electronic transmission with paddle shutters vs CVT. Instead of a bed, it has a rack. My only gripes with it are its looks, the tall utility seating, and its a bit on the low geared end of the spectrum. The low gearing might be a good thing if you decide to throw taller tires on it.

Re: Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

You say you will only be using the machine for two weeks out of the year, that will not be good for either. you must have some plans to use it more than that, and that is where you will have to think about what you really want/need. I have a 570 and when it was new I ran into a guy with a new at that time Teryx we had a blast chasing each other on the trails. I had meet up with him multiple times over the coarse of a couple years, I would out run him on the top end. Talking to him he did not have any problems with it, and his wife seemed happy with the ride quality. trail riding is the only thing I use my RZR for Im at 4400 miles now and had to replace the rollers in the secondary clutch a year ago. this past fall the solenoid for the turf mode failed. Other than that fluid and filter changes and swapped out the belt.

Re: Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

First I no nothing about the Teryx or any other sxs. I love my 570 and have over 6,000 miles on it. Very little maintenance & right know I am doing a complete overhaul on the CVT both primary & secondary. Very little wear on all parts so little that I wonder why I am even bothering to do the rebuild. I guess I just want to be sure I will not have any problems out on the trail. So as to what to buy if you need 50 in track get the 570 by all means. If 50 in is not necessary then go with your gut it knows what you want.

2013 570 LE, 26" Kendra HTRs, Bandit 46 Sport shocks, Desert Molding Concepts Suspension Seat Brackets, Polaris 4500 lb winch, Trail Armor doors, CB roof, F&R windshields, Heater Craft heater, custom side windows, turn signals, 2 custom gun mounts, Tusk skid plate, 20" light bar.

Oh no, I meant a week or two camping trip a few times a year with (hopefully) every other weekend riding locally. I intend to rack the mileage up quickly!!

50" isn't a necessary, I'm just looking for a machine that can take me just about anywhere Id ever want to go. The 570 seems like a super capable little trail rig.. I keep teetering between it and the Teryx.

More power of the Teryx isn't a selling point for me, I couldn't care less. But more storage is.. but it's wider so may be a bit more limiting as to where I can make it..

Re: Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

The t2 has a ton of storage in the 2 box's and then you have more in the bed, they are great for trail rideing, the only bad thing is if you break a belt it's about an hour job to replace the popo is pretty simple,

Re: Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

In my opinion you need to go with the widest track machine that will fit the area you ride the stability of the wider machines is something you will wished you had focused on more then storage that can be added to any machine,especially if u are a occasional driver , the is a skill level required to take a 50" through rough trails but it can and is done by many skilled drivers,I have a 570eps and a 900s and my wife won't drive the 570 because she has put it on it's side in places she putted through with the 900

Looking for non-biased opinions in Polaris only forum

Thank you all so much for all your input! So very helpful! If anyone else has any thoughts on this please chime in!!

I absolutely love the idea of the 570.. and that's what my gut is leaning towards.. I love the simplicity, but the practicality of the Teryx is telling my gut something else.

I talked to my girlfriend about the Teryx and she was shocked because she has only heard RZR come out of my mouth the past year and a half but after showing her it (pictures and walk around videos) she agrees it's ugly as sin but would be perfect for camping trips on the trail..

We could keep clothes and what not in the dry storage, a small tent o top of the dry storage, and a large cooler with a small grille in the bed.

I'll have to stop at the dealer on Tuesday (thats when they open back up) and take a look at them in person.

I NEED MORE INPUT. You guys are the best!!
