07 Sportsman 450

5 posts in this topic

I found a good deal on a 07 Sportsman 450 with only 125miles on it and plow and windshield. Just curious if anyone has any personal experience with the 450 since it seems to have only been made in 06-07? Not interested in hearing about other machines just this one since that is what I'm looking at. Thanks for any info good or bad.

I bought a 07 new. I don't get to use it near as much as I'd like, but when I do, I'm happy that I made the purchase. It's a great machine. I can't imagaine any situation where I'd wish that I would have bought a bigger one. The only possible improvement would be fuel injection, but it's not that big of a deal to pull out the choke lever when it's really cold out. I use mine for hunting, riding and used to use it to pull a portable fish house. I don't ice fish any more but when I did, it was plenty sufficient. You'll be happy with it.

Thanks, I'm waiting of if another guy could get a loan for it or not then im next in line. My dad has a 03 sportsman 400 and has been used and abused and is still great but was just curious about the motor or any problems. Thanks for the response and hope I get the call its still for sale soon. I'm not too worried about having to pull the choke out.

Some may dispute this claim, but in my own personal experience, Polaris builds a great motor for their ATVs. The Fuji motors are great motors also.

I have an 06 450 Sportsman and I'm happy with it. I've had no problems starting in cold weather using the choke. I ice fish some and trail ride some in summer. Nice and comfy ride and fast enough for me. The 450 is the former 400. The engine in a 400 was really 435cc or so. Polaris/Fuji tweaked the engine a bit to 455.

The EBS (engine braking)of the 500 series would probably be a nice feature but this machine was a few hundred $$$ cheaper than the 500 as well.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
