hi, I’m new. I’m from WI, and have been ATVing for a decent number of years, probably go about 5-8x per year. i‘ve been using a stable of ATVs and UTVs my uncle has at his cabin, from Polaris, Yamaha, and Cats. I’m essentially a newbie tho, and know enough to take the family on day long trips through the northwoods, but I probably don’t know what I don’t know...
this past weekend, while working on the cabin (typical beginning of the season prep), my wife texts me to say that we should get our own ATV, so we aren’t always dependent on my uncles flock (sometimes one or more might be out of service... we have two kids, so we’d be wanting 2-person capable vehicles. Every shop I called said there’s very little if any new inventory (or it’s a 2-4mo wait). I checked online (marketplace) and looked hard at a couple ATV 2ups, but they sold within hours... my local motor shop up north JUST got this SxS in on consignment, and I’m seriously considering getting it. I have questions on price, reliability, etc. the shop that it’s at is the shop that has maintained the SxS, so ill get a fairly honest opinion of the condition (hopefully). If it’s torched, the shop owner knows I’ll just be in when it breaks and giving him the stink eye, lol...
it’s a 2015 Cat Wildcat Sport XT. 4600 miles. 188 hrs (avg speed 25mph). Comes with the following extras: front & rear glass, roof, solid doors, LED bar, mirrors, winch (rope), heated seats, etc.. asking price is $8k. Shop owner seems to think it’s in good shape. It’s certainly seen it’s share of wet/muddy trails, but the trails in the area arent crazy rock crawling trails. Thoughts? I know the pics are really dirty, but it was ridden to the shop 30 mins prior to me stopping by, and it had just rained for 3 days straight. The trails were wet...
we did take it for a test ride, it sounded good, no major rattles or engine issues from my untrained ear to detect (nothing glaring). We did get it up to 55mph with no prob, but that seemed the top with two guys weighting 450 total lbs inside,
looking for some expert advice, but also looking for a great community to learn about SxS upgrades, mods, and general lifestyle!
2006 John Deere 4x4 Diesel Gator HPX with 279 HOURS on it. Very good condition. This Gator Has a glass enclosed cab with windshield wipers and heater. It has spot lights mounted on top and a locking tool box on the bed. This is a manual lift bed. It is 4 wheel drive with locking differential. A complete joy on those windy cold rainy days. on warmer days the front window opens and locks to get a nice cool breeze in the cab. !!! [email protected] !!!
This is my first post here. I live in Charleston WV and have grown up riding ATV's. I've always wanted to get into the Hatfield and McCoy trail systems. I have 3 kids and as of Dec. no longer have to financially support my ex wife. So I've decided those funds should go towards a UTV. Probably didn't need that much background, but oh well.
What I get has to be a 4 seater. This will solely be used for recreation and fun. No work, no utility.
So based on my own research I've narrowed it down to the Kawasaki TERYX S LE or the Can Am Commander Max XT.
I'd be very interested in any comments about these two specifically but I'm also open to other suggestions but am limited to the two dealers in my town as they both also offer service.

I purchased a Gator 625I recently and after owning it for awhile realized the top speed was limited to approximately 25 MPH. I talked with my local JD dealer and they told me this was done on this model for emissions reasons. I didn’t buy this for a racer but would like a top speed of around 40 MPH. Is there anything fairly simple that could remedy this? Thanks
