My friend has had a Sportsman XP 1000 for a few years and said he would never buy another ATV without EPS. He rides a lot more than I do so I value his opinion. He likes this a lot better than his old Grizzly 660 without EPS and it rides better too. Polaris EPS has a variable-assist, so when you're going slow it works more and when you're going fast it works less, so you stay in control. Mine has New! High-Output Electronic Power Steering. I don't know what makes that any different from regular old EPS. When I rode back from my neighbor's house and backed up my driveway I couldn't believe how easy it turned around in the street. The 4x4 is different on this one too. Instead of True On-Demand AWD/2WD like the other 570s it's High Performance True On-Demand AWD/2WD. The owner's manual covers all of the 450s and 570s and the 570 SP has a completely different gear ratio in the front than any of the others. I looked online to try to find out something about it and the only thing I found so far was for a RZR that had High Performance True On-Demand AWD/2WD. They said it locked into 4WD nearly instantaneously. That's a lot different from when I got my first Sportsman 500 and they said it locks in if the rear wheels spin 1/5 of a revolution. When I turn on my high beams all 3 headlights come on. Polaris' website says the regular 570s have a single high beam like the old 500s did. I also have 14" cast aluminum wheels instead of 12" steel wheels, and a higher towing rating. The more I read about my ATV the more things I find that they changed from the standard 570, besides the front suspension.

I noticed that right away too, with my KQ's PS, where there was hardly any assist with the steering while stopped or going slow, and thought something was wrong with the PS unit, so I called the dealer, and he said the steering improves the faster you go, but you would think trying to turn while stopped/slow movement, would blow a gasket somewhere, with the almost manually feeling, hard load/pressure, on the PS pump.

No pump, the quad business uses electric power steering. Makes no sense to me why they made small assist at slow speed and lots of assist at high speed...sounds backwards to me.

My new ride, getting it all polished up for the 4th w/ son Paul and grandson Derrick, for St Helen long weekend, not my choice of time to be there, but my son and grandson (that work together now, for same co.) their only days off together, since grandson just hired in, with only holidays off, for awhile lol both working steady all year, 6 days a week. Need a friend to fill in to ride with, since this might be another long wait, waiting for these guys to get some more free riding days, in a row lol. Ken we need to have you try out the trails around Baldwin, next time you have time, there all real wide, sandy, very little elevation, and you'll need a few days to ride all the trails there that are close together, with one exception, the LITTLE NO, if you KNOW, what I mean, you wouldn't fit anyways, under 50'' but even then we got stuck between trees lol

Is that a Warrior? Yes I would like to try Baldwin one of these days. We rode a lot in the AuSable state forrest roads, wide, lots of trees and animals, must have seen 50 deer and three dozen turkeys. State forrest roads have few restrictions other than a 25 mph speed limit but we rarely went that fast, no time to see the animals! Enjoy your limited time with your family, from what you have told me they ride way to fast for me. The neighbor and his son are avid hunters so slow and easy to scout deer is the way they like to ride. We hit many of the play areas where they could rip and tear and have a ball. Even shot a few hills myself, but not as fast as they do! The GPS was a little tricky to figure out, every time you stop the little buggy icon turns 180 degrees, I didn't catch that on the first day day so kept sending us in the wrong direction. Soon learned to compare the compass to the direction on the gps and it made things much easier. Still hard to read, almost wish I had gone bigger yet. However I am sure I can find my way around when I need to. Never even made it to the southern route trails, to many forrest roads to ride, we covered just shy of 100 miles over the 3 days. Did get to try out my new awning on the MH, sure was glad to have that or it might have been a washout. Matt brought along deer tenderloins, we sliced and wrapped in bacon, cooked over the campfire, stood under the awning to keep dry. Bought full rainsuit so we could ride all day thur in the rain. Hasn't stopped raining since we got back Friday evening so trailer is still hooked up. I will wait until the flood waters pull back to unload and clean my buggy. Wife has back mri next week but has now developed severe swelling in legs and feet, so another doc visit next week for that......will it ever end?
