stay away from an 05 700 or 800 they are nothing but a problem.
my 05 700 was in the shop more than i drove it and everyone of my friend's and every one i talked to that had a 05 700 or 800 all had the same problem's.

the 500 or 600 should be a good choice but in my opinion the sportsman 500 is the most bullet proof atv, if your not a power freak but if you are a power freak go with a 800 sportsman or the new sportsman 850 is a monster (the 850 is my next atv)

Thanks I was leaning toward the 700 only becuase I figured I dont need the extra power but would rather have it and not need it then not have it and need it

BUT I would MUCH rather not have a ton of issues. Great I will lean in the 500 or 600 now

Is the 600 worth price differance?

nada has the 600 at 2700 low retail, average retail is 3300

the 500 is at low retail 3000, average retail is 3700
these prices include winch

the rest of the extra's i never include in price when i buy or sell my atv's. but some do. in my opinion i think the 600 is over priced.
if you really want the 600 show the seller the book value and see if he will take the book value price

my 05 700 had 4800 dollar's in repair's in the 1 1/2 year's i owned it all paid for by extended warranty and none of the repair's were from abuse

I had a 500 and it was awesome no problems and I loved it but it was an 02 I dont know much about them but everyone I know loves their 500 regardless of year. The kelly bluebook is not as accurate as the NADA books.
