Stealth Black??

18 posts in this topic

I have a question, does anyone have a stealth black Polaris, I am debating between black and blue, but a buddy of mine said dont get black because they show every scratch and brush mark. He said a dealer told him that dealers have a hard time selling the black one. I think the black looks awesome, but I don't want to buy it if it marks up so easily. Does anyone have any thoughts or experiences with the stealth black. They do have a different texture then the other colors and it feels like it would be pretty scratch resistant??

Thanks for any input.

Black is about as cool looking as it gets, but, they do scratch very easily and depending how deep the scratch the scratch is usually white!!!

Thanks for the reply, would you buy black or a different color for that reason of scratching so easily?

On Polaris the Black and Mossy Oak is molded plastic, most other colors are painted. The painted scratches very easily buy may be able to be buffed out. I think the black is one of the best selling colors Polaris has to offer.

I would get black, but I think the scrathes will more less be scuff marks and will look DULL, adds charactor though. I the part about scratch and then looks white, like the guy said above me molded black will not show as white. it's not painted. Black would be awsome, just might appear a little dull after a while

If it gets scratched..it gets scratched. After all it is designed to be ridden off-road.

Buddy of mine has a stealth black sportsman. He has used and abused it to extreme, and none I repeat none of the scratch's show anymore than my red cat. I would recommend that color to anyone lookn at one.

I would have bought black when I got my kawasaki, the only downfall was that the black kawasaki had red tubing for racks which looked terrible! The best black ATV I have seen is the new Arctic Cat with black paint with pearl in the paint. Ride it in the sun and the pearl coat really stands out!! Looks pretty sweet! Just not a big cat fan.

Black with black rims. It looks even better with the Mattracks.

As for scratches? it's an ATV.

It does clean up nice though.

Running boards are 17" long and 7" wide on my 2008 SP800. No problem with size 11 boots.

    • It has either a nickle or chrome plating, I am thinking it is probably nickle. 
    • THAT ladies and gentlemen.......or gentlemen ladies is how you set the hook.   Look at the size of those hands!!!!!!!!!        
    • very very nice!!  good for you!!
    • Well, I want a president that Hollywood DOESNT want
    • Different Strokes for different folks. Ewwww
    • Team Lodge Extreme is a brand that makes what you're looking for and has for a few years now. I think Big Bite also builds one with that functionality and purpose in mind as well. Both are very nice houses.
    • I wanted to share my recent find, I was searching the items on a local online auction and saw what I thought was a Pimple (or Pimpl) spear (it was only labeled as a stainless spear). I stopped by the auction house to take better pictures and compare it to others and I was convinced it was a Pimple, I even had a spear collector I know agree that it was a Pimple. I started bidding on it at the very end of the auction and unfortunately someone else also knew what it was since I found myself in an intense bidding war with one other bidder. We battled back and forth for what seemed like forever, it almost got a little personal and just when i told myself I'd only place one more bid the other person stopped bidding. I was the winner of the spear at $340 (I've heard of other selling for $600 on auction)   When I went to pick up the spear I was given a dumbfounded look and asked "why did you spend so much on this spear???" I explained the history of the spear and the spear maker who was born in the 1860's or 70's depending on where you read the history and immigrated here from Austria.  While I was explaining this a group of people gathered around to listen to the story and they had no clue what they had and were amazed the small spear was that old and that desirable.    It will be a family heirloom that will be passed down in my family for generations to come. Just to even hold this piece of history is awesome. 
    • Well, there went my bfast...thanks a lot!! Maybe I should use my "Delete" button...hmmm...   And I always used to think highly of Duffman.
