Hey all. New from Ohio. First ride in 85 was a Suzuki quad sport. Rode the hell out of that thing as a kid. Got back into quads in 09 with a Raptor 700. Bought a Rzr 800 in 2011. Traded for a Rzr Xp 900 in 2012, and finally a Rzr Xp 1000 in late 2013. Can't wait to see the new Yamaha. My 1000 is a piece of garbage. Been through a front diff, 2 primary clutches, tie rod ends, ball joints, bushings, and 2 oil leaks. Fun when it runs, but wanting some Yamaha quality. That's my intro.

Welcome to the forum Qwknbad!! My first ATV was a Honda 110, then I jumped up to a Honda 200X. Then an Arctic Cat 500 4X4. Now I have my AC Wildcat Trail. Excited to see what Yamaha comes out with.

Welcome, bet you wish you held on to to the xp900. 2 people in our group bit on the early xp1000, neither still have it...I made a fortune selling them belts...HA. It was rough on all of us though.

I don't miss the 900. I like the suspension on the 1000 better, plus I was a little sour on the 900 when the motor blew. Polaris replaced it even though warranty was up, due to the dealer finding a thrust washer had been installed on the crankshaft backwards.
