Looks like it hit a wall. Even ugly can be fast though so I'll show it some respect when I see one in the dunes.

It is FASTER than the Raptor! I do own both by the way. And it rides smoother. Its ok to hate it because I didnt buy it for you guys I bought it because its what I wanted. Thats ok because you will only have to look at the back of it. HAHAHAHAHA

I dont think I will have a problem with the KTM 525 engine. And the quality of the chassis is as good as any jap bike made. You might want to check one out before you put your foot in your mouth.

KTM doesn't play. They make serious engines. Sparky...This is probably going to give you wood. If the 510 is just an underbored 525, you can buy a bore, piston, and stroker crank kit straight from KTM. Go with the 540 kit and 78mm stroker crank and you are popping 576cc. They also have slipper clutches etc. KTM and Hotcams already has the dirtbike camshafts. It comes factory with that baddass hydraulic clutch, and oh ya...Poo-laris has tow straps and overnight bags. Wear it out dude. ;)

Til it breaks down like all Polaris's do :lol: :lol:
That's right :thumbsup:. I've never liked Polaris, if both quads were stock they say the outlaw is faster (I want proof). With mods I'm pretty sure the 700 has it beat. Guess i'll find out when I race one

pred seat is a lazy boy compared to an outlaw I rode this last fall. Rode it for a couple of hours and the lump in the seat to accommodate the strange air box/cleaner design is horrible and I didn’t get used to it. I like Polaris though and the outlaw was fun just feels different and slow...I bet the new engine is a nice improvement. How is the seat on the new one? How is the handling?
