if you had a choice?

Recommended Posts

would you buy the 2007 polaris sportsman 500 X2 or a 2007 can-am outlander max 500. They are both 2up machines. Thanks for any suggestions.

I had the choice. I couldn't get past the Can Am frame design and all that I have read about it. I also had a hard time with the floorboard supports.

If I was riding sand dunes, it may have been a different story. The riding I do, I am not intentionally abusing my machine, but it will take some hits and get high-centered once and a while. I didn't like the lack of metal under the machine on the Outlander.

I really wanted the rotax...

78cj5 polaris claims that it is a much better ride for the passenger then the outlander. In your opinion what do you think is better?

I have an 07 500 sportsman, and I really like it. I looked at the Can AMs, and just figured are they really worth thousands more----no.

Whoops. Got a reply deleted for putting a link in it...

If you type in "800 sportsman versus Outlander" in your search window, there is a pretty decent review that should pop up. If you can't find it, let me know.

The Cam am would be a better trail machine but the polaris is better for utility work and rough terrain. The Can am frame looks nice but is actually fairly weak compared to the other manufactures and more than a few have cracked and broke. From what I've heard the sportsman x2 rides better than the regular sportsmans. I've had an '02 sportsman 500 and an '05 sportsman 700 and they both rode excelllent. I would post an atv forum here that talks about this but it would get deleted.
