I have a 2020 900 trail. Im at a point that im want to either purchase the "s" conversion kit and build a solid rig or sell my rig and buy a 1000xp. What are the pros and cons? Do you feel like your 900s meets your expectations or is your machine still lacking and a 1000 would be a better machine. Obviously its alot of money either way but i dont want to go down the rabbit hole of building my 900 only to wish id have just bought a bigger machine once im done. Any input is appreciated. Thanks

Personal opinion here.... Your 900 with an ECU tune isn't far off from the power on a stock 1000. You'd be shocked. With an ECU tune and the S conversion, you've got a pretty wild ride without going through the whole buying and selling process again.

If you are dead set on the better ride and more power of a bigger machine...I'd personally look into a Turbo model to feed the need for speed. In the end, it comes down to what you want to spend. A built 900 with the tune and S kit wouldn't be different enough for me to justify going to a stock 1000. I'd either build up what you have....or make the jump and go big.

Ecu is crap on the 900s just turned on the fan earlier, made rpm’s higher at the end of the day it was only 4 horsepower— buy a 1000 and be done with it , 1000 has 110 horsepower to get you were you want , you can put 30 31 inch tires on it with no worries , just like you said the 900 roof , n doors , nerf bars most of all that will fit on the 1000 ..

I have a 900 S and an XPT... I can say there are a lot of times I prefer the 900 S to the XPT. Unless I have a lot of wide open spaces, my 900 S is much more enjoyable to use and much better on trails. It rides better (I have dual rate springs on both machines, though the tires are more compliant on the 900 S), it's quieter, and it gets around stuff much more easily.


Yes, there is a decent amount of power to get out of a 900 with a tune, simply because they limit power via load limiting. The lower the altitude, the more you'll gain. At really high altitude, the loads are lower in general, so it will open the throttle more, in stock form.

Basically, it really comes down to the riding you do.

Go big, get a turbo machine, better in every aspect, I went down the settle on a machine and slowly build it rabbit hole, I blew $27k to find out it still wasn't what I wanted. I then went into the dealer and told them i want the best machine you have in stock, I ended up with the Pro 4 seater and that where my full build has started.

Does budget matter to you? I have an S, my twin had a trail. The trail was very limited compared to my S. If you don't want to upgrade to a more expensive machine like a xp1k or turbo, you can sell for a 900S or even a 1000S. Yes you won't have the longer travel suspension with bigger springs and shocks, but with the rig in my sig, I go everywhere the xp1ks go in my group. I'm also stg1 tuned with dual rate springs. I love my rig. Nimble enough to get technical but not having failure points like you'd have in trailing arm/radius rod suspensions.

I have to agree with this. Having a 900S and a pro xp, I can say that the 900 is just faster in certain situations..
