Polaris ranger 570-6 vs Yamaha Viking king ranch

Recommended Posts

Looking to either buy a 2016 ranger or a Yamaha Viking. I was told that the Viking is less powerful. What are the pros and cons of each and which one would you go with. Thanks

My friend has a 570 and I have the Viking. The 570 is noisy, has less room in the cab and a smaller engine. The Viking also comes with a 10 year belt warranty. Yamaha is known to have the toughest drive line in the industry. The minus to the Viking, is that the rear end has a spool piece, meaning no spider gears, no limited slip. It is full time posi-trac, so, everytime  you turn hard around in your yard, you are going to turn up grass. I like a full size door, so I spent $600 on Super ATV Doors, and replaced the little half doors. Everyone loves the full size doors. I don't know if aftermarket are available to Polaris. One other thing. on the Viking, with the factory fold down windshield, when you have it up, and it is raining, there is about a 2 1/2 open space at the top, that allows the rain to blow in your face. The whole windshield can be adjusted up to stop it, BUT, you have to get out in the rain, then, when you load it to haul, the windshield must be restored to the original position.  I love my Viking and would buy one over the Polaris, everytime.

      Hello, I just bought a 2004 Polaris ranger TM. It did not come with a lower seat. New seat is $500+. Looking on ebay for a used one and they don't list the Ranger TM model. Does anyone know what different Ranger years and models will fit the ranger TM? Is there a easy way to get a non TM ranger seat to work? Or do I shell out the $500 on a new seat? This is my first UTV. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you

      How large (watts) of a light bar can I add without upgrading the battery. I see the generator output is 550 watts at 3000 RPM but I do not see the amp hour rating of the battery.

      So, im new to UTV's always ridden ATV's typically the Polaris 850's and such and a few Rubicon's. Moved into the county with some land and figured I'd get back into the country mud. I've been doing some research on UTV's and I am impressed, I went to the local pony powersports and sat in a few atvs, being 6ft1 and 360lbs I wanted to make sure I could fit into one of them comfortably before doing my research on which one I wanted. My conclusion was - the Honda Pioneer 1000 limited edition , or the Polaris ranger xp 1000 (would prefer the highlander edition).  I was trying to do some research on which one is better, I know they are both leaders in the industry from the research I have done.  I'll mostly be driving through creeks taking it to some trails and moving some things here and there (firewood, fallen trees, ect.) the years im considering are 2017,2018 and if there is a big enough change in the model that a 2019 would make more sense then I would do that. Looking to spend 20k ish. Any help on deciding the better of the rangers and pioneers would be appreciated, or if you have another UTV a bigger guy should look into!

      We have been having all kinds of fuel issues with this ranger.  When you try to start it when it is cold outside, it does not want to start.  It will crank over fine but doesn't start but if you stop and come back 10 minutes later or so, it will start up.  But even then, it is idling real bad.  Usually will die a few times before you can get going, really have to feather the gas pedal to keep it alive.  Once it gets warmed up, it does start better but something still not right.  Even when it is warm outside, it will start up but just doesn't idle right.
      I bought a fuel pump kit, not the whole assembly, just the pump and replaced that and the same thing happens.  I am in the process of trying to check the fuel pressure on it but the fuel pressure gauge I got from our local auto parts store seems to be defective.  Had it hooked up and can't get the gauge to show any pressure at all yet it will still start up.   If it does have the correct pressure, what would be the next place to start looking at?  If it doesn't have correct pressure, is there something else on the assembly that would cause low pressure?  We checked the voltage on the connecter and one gets 12 volts for just a few seconds and the other one gets 4.9 volts.  The other 2 show nothing.  I am guessing the one with 4.9 volts is for the fuel gauge sender and the one that has 12 volts is the pump.   When you take the fuel line off on the engine side and turn the key on, how far should it throw fuel out?  
      We have taken it to 2 shops and neither one was able to do anything with it, one said there was nothing wrong.  Not sure if they really did any checking or what or they just don't know what to do with it.  
      Would the whole fuel pump assembly out of a ranger 570 work with the ranger 800?  Would I be able to swap them without any issues?  To buy a whole new assembly, it's around $400, don't really want to spend that much not knowing if it will fix it or not.
