Hey everyone. I am having a difficult time deciding between two atvs. The first option is a 2017 Can-Am Outlander 450 4x4 it has 108 hours on it and I can get it for 3500 maybe a little less. It looks brand new the other option is a 2016 Honda Rancher TRX 4x4 with DTC IRS. It has low hours but I am not confident on the exact amount. They are asking 4500. I will most likely be keeping whichever ATV I get for its lifetime. I live on some property and it would be used for daily chores and occasional trail riding. I am open to suggestions on other models but I really feel more comfortable under 4k right now. I want something that will stay running if I maintain it properly. My 98 Kawasaki Bayou 300 is still going but I am having to really baby it. Any input would be great! Thanks.
I know that maintenance/parts is more expensive on the can-am, I have a 2018 can-am defender HD10 and it cost me $80 for a oil change kit! Told me that itís the kit for 400cc motors to the 1000cc. They both sound like great machines though, you get what you pay for!
Those kits are a rip-off. Just buy T6 or your favorite oil in gallon jug and find yourself a supertech or microgard or napa filter and you're good to go.
