How are the Razor 570's

Hi folks,
I was going to get a ranger 500EFI but on closer look I think the Razor 570 will be more useful. I am looking at the narrower bike cause I had a concern about going down trails with the 500.
The Razor will fit in my truck better and I reckon it will pull out a moose if need be...
Does anyone have one out there? I would love some input. PLEASE

I heard the rzr 570 motor has more torque than the 700 and is faster. Its new from the ground up . From what I read in dirt Wheels mag. It just might be my next ride.

Torque is what's needed for dragging out a moose.

If I'm looking to pull moose around Polaris is the last of the big brands I would go with. The clutch is not the best for that kind of detail. I've dragged out a lot of deer and elk with wheelers and a wet clutch is the way to fly. From time to time is one thing, I guess it depends how much low speeding and dragging a guys planning.

So the Ranger lineup in general is the best way to go if you plan on using it as a street legal vehicle more than for offroad use? I plan on using mine for hunting and for transportation to and from work.

I think the Polaris clutch is by no means junk or inferior. It's just not as well suited for pulling from a stop repeatedly. I take mine far and away from the truck on a regular basis so I'm not really worried about it. I just make a point to run it in a way that keeps the belt engaged as much as is reasonable. When crawling up rocky canyons it is however in the forefront of my mind.

With the ability to open the rear dif it's definitely a great option for street use.

That's my only fear is getting out into the middle of BFE and have a belt fail. The trail I take when hunting is full of huge rocks and requires a fair amount of crawling to negotiate without causing damage to the UTV. Guess maybe just a bit of an alteration to driving habit might solve that just don't like flying down a trail full of large rocks that is all downhill and is always muddy or covered in snow during hunting season. Maybe a set of tracks would help but that would be another huge expense LOL.

With my rhino I never had an issue at all on that trail and I ran up and down that trail in high range except for a couple places where 4WD/Diff Lock were needed this past hunting season due to being overloaded and extremely muddy.

Sweet! I'm kinda the same way, stick with what I know works for me. With 4400 miles on a belt I'd say you know how to keep one. Hope the new rod is all you expect man.
