I am buying a new ATV but am not sure what model. I require power steering, A/T, Independent suspension, a winch. I prefer something around 500cc to 600cc range. Can anyone tell me what they think is best - the electronic P/S of Honda or the Fluid P/S of Suzuki?::

what ever honda you buy..make sure you don't go with the ES models..they have been too prone to have shifting issues..get a manual shift..that enough is a great start..and welcome to the forums !
Thanks: I have to have an A/T due to injuries from Iraq. I am familiar with the ES design is the select lever models better since they are more mechanical than electronic?
from what i've seen on here sinse i've been around..and what i've worked on..the es models have always had problems with the solenoid that may have solved that problem with newer models now..i don't know ?? you got a bad leg..and this keeps you from shifting..they make an after market lever that you can bolt onto the shifter..and shift with your hand.
Thanks-do they make the rancher in a 500 or 550cc?
not that i know of..the rubicon and foremans are only in the 500cc range.
