The guys who work the gas wells here put a lot of miles on their machines. They say Honda.


Now with even more aplomb

Bought my new '18 Teryx4 LE about 18 months ago.......

3300+ trouble free miles at this point....changed belt & plugs at 2800 miles

Easy to service....large 4+ quart oil capacity compared to most 2-3 qt in others

Three year factory warranty..opposed to 6-12 months with other mfg's

None are perfect..some quieter than others..look at your needs and wishes

Buying new ? Biggest option I suggest is full glass DOT vented windshield...buy once/cry once

I had a 06 Yamaha Rhino which was a good machine but I now have a Honda Pioneer 700 delux and love it. A lot quieter than the Yamaha but I understand the Teryl is also a good machine. Know a guy with a Cam Am and nothing but trouble

Ended up with a Yamaha Viking. So far it seems like a good machine and will do the job for me.[Linked Image from i.imgur.com]

I've had mine for 3 years and have been very happy with it. Fox suspension sold by Yamaha is a worthwhile upgrade. Eliminates suspension sag, gets your clearance bag and the ride improvement is very noticeable.

We have a 2010 Teryx that has been nearly trouble free. I was so impressed, when we needed another SXS, we picked up a Mule FTX Pro which has been fantastic. Ours are used more for work than play but get used hard (the older Teryx actually has a usable bed for hauling). These things have proven so reliable I’d venture Kawi actually sees very few warranty claims even though the period is 36 months. I test drove both the Honda 700 and 1000 before buying the FTX pro. I particularly liked the 1000 (700 felt cramped). Those who have had transmission problems are pretty unhappy after expiration of Honda’s short warranty. I chose the reliability of the belt driven machines, and the availability of a low range.

All I hear about is the necessity of travelling with a belt when operating belt driven machines. Leads me to consider machines that are not belt drives.

Seismic and oil companies in Alberta mostly use Honda because of ease of use and reliability.

I've had 3 Honda SXS's so far, an original (Ugly) Big Red, a Pioneer 700, and now, a Pioneer 1000. Not a single problem with any of them except for front shock bushing squeaks on the Big Red, easily fixed, though. Both the Big Red and the 700 now belong to fellow hunt camp members and get used hard. They have been bulletproof for them, despite the abuse meted out to them by the owners and their kids.

I was always against belt driven machines until I bought my 09 Rhino, now my opinion has changed since using that machine for everything from hunting to hauling cabin materials. I've changed the belt only once and that was only because I was working on cleaning the clutches and figured I might as well put a new one on while i'm in there but the old belt was still in pretty good shape.


That's ok, I'll ass shoot a dink.

I know of a dozen Atv’s and s by s that are 15 years old and none have ever broken a belt or even needed one replaced (these were Yamaha, Kawi and Suzuki machines). If you’re thinking they’re like snowmobiles, in my experience, you are mistaken. Granted, these were 4 stroke 450-700cc machines. Can’t speak for the high performance machines that are such the draw these days.

I have a 2011 teryx le 2 seater It has been trouble free and we work it. The only problem I have had is sticks coming thru the floorboard only happened twice , but is something to consider if you plan on having dogs sitting there. Kawasaki has a fix and covers it under warranty except for my year......
