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.

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
