  • Best Bike I(TM)ve Ever Had
    By Bill Hamann (I am an Owner) on Oct 10, 2021

    This is my 5th Polaris ATV. Never any trouble with any of them. This 850 is the best though. Awesome power, smooth smooth ride but handles excellent. I ride pretty hard for an old guy all over the Pacific Northwest and this bike handles everything I can throw at it no problem.

  • NOT THE ATV THAT I THOUGHT !!!
    By Brandon Pickering (I am an Owner) on Jun 07, 2021

    I bought a 2021 - 850 sportsman in February. I only got to enjoy it for 2 months. After putting only 15 hours on it, it got so HOT that it started melting the plastic from under the back fender over the exhaust. After it has been in the shop now for 4 weeks and is still there. Polaris finally told ...

    Can any one tell me if they know about this problem and what the fix can be ?

    Very disappointed !! Spend over $10,000 for something you shouldn't be having any problems. They dont make things like they use to.
