Re: What Giving Up with 4-Seater?
I had a 4-seat 800, went to a 2-seater when we bought the XP1K. If I had it to do over again, I would have bought the 4-seat 1000. 4-seater is more stable, longer wheelbase is a bit smoother, has more room for storage even if you don't often carry passengers. Having owned both, IMO the only advantage to the 2-seater (for my riding conditions, anyway) is a tighter turning radius - and slightly quicker handling, if that's your thing. But for the type of riding I do, there's nothing a 2-seater can do that a 4-seater can't.
The one and only thing I don't like about the 4-seater is that if you have your suspension sprung/set up for 2 riders, it goes to hell when you put 4 full-sized adults in there. Ground clearance is less, handling gets wallowy/squishy and you bottom out a lot more. If you spring it/set it up for 4 riders, it will be so stiff it will beat you to death when you only have two aboard. The logical solution is to set it up for which loads you carry most often, and accept the compromises when you go the other way.
