    Why not get an older, less expensive ATV. Instead of blowing a ton of money on something big and flashy, get a used toy for some fun and save enough money to get tires soon. I'm with shemp on the Yamaha btw :D my vote is keep an eye out for an older, used, well-kept, cheap Yamaha and then you don't have to worry about damaging it when you go and act a fool.

    We know your opinion now, Yamaha>*. Yamahas also never get stuck and always pull other brands out. I have only owned 2 atv's in my life, both are Yamahas. I agree maintenance was very low.

    The OP wants a Renegade for a reason, he wants an ATV with cojones. He wants something with HP. More hp = greater chance to break stuff.

    Yamaha also doesn't make a sport 4x4. The only competition is Polaris' new scrambler.

    Different riders, riding styles, and locations call for a different type of atv. If you're on a farm, a Honda would probably be perfect not a Renegade...

    Haha! Yeah both my bikes were air cooled, and i made it a point to give my liquid cooled buddies hell when we had to stop and clean radiators because they were getting hot.

    Thats definitely a drawback in mud or dusty areas

    Agreed, it was really dusty that day. Can-Ams do look nice, but id probably kill myself with all that power. Ive been riding Polaris 335's and Honda 420's my whole life.

    The only thing I said about getting STUCK was a Yamaha that was stuck. You can't get stuck if you blow up before getting to the mud... :D

    I don't care if you put a V8 in there, NO APPRECIABLE DIFFERENCE. Its pure bragging rights, nothing more. Only reason OP might want one of those worthless trashpiles is if he is ill informed.

    That's true.

    "Sport" and "4x4" do not belong in the same sentence, even if some manufacturers pretend to make such.

    HAHAHAHAHA A POO, competition for what?

    Yep, some riders LIKE to break down and get dragged out. Others like their machine to actually WORK.

    My 400 Yamaha is LC, but SOOOO well cooled that the electric fan NEVER goes on. Literally. I got worried a few years ago because of this, and carefully tested the [electric fan] thermostat and fan. Both 100% working within spec. Even dragging a huge trailer in low range on a hot summer day with the rad fins half filled with mud. Engine = god-like.

    I don't think it actually needs the radiator fins to cool adequately. I think the surface area of the engine is enough by itself.

    It's easy to cool a single cylinder engine that makes less than 28 hp.

    Not so easy for a v twin making 70+hp.

    But he still dies.
    If you can afford it, get an ATV. I am more willing to thrash the quad than the truck anyday.
