07 Sportsman 450

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
