Can't decide

Hi to you all, I am new here. I would like to hear your reasons why I should get a Teryx over a RZR. I have no experience with any of them. Thinking of selling the Harley and getting one of these. I love the torque of my KFX 700. How do the two engines compare? ect.... I thank you for any help you all could give me.

I have ridden the Can Am and it is awesome for sure but it won't be out until Nov and will be very hard to get.

As for the present, the Teryx is the best choice, the RZR is too low, has a weak frame as well as other parts.

Does not not take much and the Teryx will spank a RZR.

The only thing the RZR has on the Teryx is handling in the tight stuff.

It's simple,you get a Teryx or you can go back on KR's! Here's the thing,so far the Can-Am's have good power out of the box,but as you know with even a 730 kit in your V-Force you will smoke a 800 Renagade. Same thing here,their 800 and even 1000 isn't going to stay with a 840 Teryx. Now on the plus side the Can-Ams will out handle the Teryx in the woods. If you are going to use this in the dunes only I think you would like the modded Teryx in the long run,but to each his own.Oh and one last thing

How do you think the Can Am will handle in the woods vs. a Teryx with Elkas, Fox, King or.... shocks?

The thing that makes the Can-Am's work so good in the woods is the trailing arms. They rail around a corner more like a straight axle instead of rolling so much like most IRS set ups.

Group I ride with consists of a couple rzr a ranger n also couple rhinos, just always seems poolaris' break down alot, I like the rzr but this is reason I went with teryx, my rhino buddy was about to give up his beloved rhinofor a teryx then I sent him a link for the can am, looks like I'm gonna be jealous in the near future, and the 840 kit suddenly fmoved up on my short list he just wants Yamaha to come out with a machine that will hang, he loves the rhino for its reliability and I have to say I like their clutch system and diff lock better, + on the fly 4*4, rhino just to slow, anyone know bout anything exiting happening over at yamaha
