No info just advice in question form - who will repair it and where will the parts come from when it breaks? (and it WILL break!) Dealers around here will laugh at anyone who pulls in with some of the off-brand junk sold out there.

Good luck,

I own a '01 Polaris HO 500-A '01 Polaris 250 trail blazer and an '07 Arctic Cat 500. have no problems with any of them.Nough said,buy well known brands,enjoy them for a long time.Neighbor bought two of those small 2 wheel drive ATV's Pep Boys sell, the second day of his Kid's man handling them they were back on the Trailer headed for Pep boys.Right now I do not see any ATV's around their place.Most of my friends have Polaris and I got my Arctic Cat to be different and I really like it.Very good for Trails in the Desert and Mountains.The Ho 500 and 250 trailblazer are reserved for Visitors when they come.

I'd advise you to stay away from any Chinese ATV. NO parts support or any dealer support for that matter. Guys buy them by the container-load, sell them off cheap and disappear.

Too much dough for no-name stuff. Buy a used Yamaha, Honda or Suzuki.

The chinese bike use very cheap steel and the cheapest parts they can find. I'd be surprised if it lasted 2 months. Buy a nice used honda rancher. It'll run forever.

I wrote a three paragraph thing about parts service dealership etc then my screen went blank.so instead of rewriting it Ill sum it up;DONT DO IT.Put four grand toward a name brand.That thing will break on a daily basis.

I buy alot of stuff from Harbor freight, even bought a Chinese made dozer from Northern tool in 2002, all have been great however i bought one of those 4 wheelers too. Big mistake, too many problems to list, spend the same money on a good used Jap
4 wheeler and youll be much better off. There are
alot of good cheap Chinese stuff made but 4 wheelers arent one of them.

For not much more you can buy a name brand atv. Had one of those made in china broke brake drum could not get parts even though I was told parts were available when I bought it. Now own 2 Hondas and a Kawaski.

I just picked up a new Honda Foreman to go with my '02 Rancher.

Spendy @ 6 grand, but Honda's 2.9% with a grand down ended up at 125 bucks/month for 48.

Tell your wife it's machinery, and you can use it as collateral if needed. My Ranchers 6 years old and probably costs me a hundred bucks a year in maintenance.

Why in the world would you EVEN consider buying one of those CHINESE PRISONER made pieces of crap when there are American made brands made right here in America for just a bit more?

It absolutely sickens me to see anyone buy anything from a communist country that is clearly such an any to our freedom when they have alternative choices. Buy from anyone but from our sworn enemies! I truly expect better especially from a site such as this that celebrates our heritage. Do I have some things from China at my home? Unfortunately, the answer is yes when I couldnt find an alternative in the time allotted but I did give it the best I had to find an alternative. I hate to have to be on a high horse here but my fathers country was over run by Commies and got to spend two years in its prisons after being abandoned on the beach at the Bay of Pigs by President Kennedy so I a quite passionate about hating the Commies and the weak kneed Lefties in our country!
