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.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
