Just rode an 800 with the kit and all I can say is wow! My dealer friend called me up to take it for a ride around the area so I went to a nearby parking lot that had snow pilled up from the plows, I couldn't believe it could climb up those crazy inclines. People stopped their cars and watched me go thru the mountains of snow in disbelief; my Outty 800 could never go thru what I just did. The Apache is very stabile, smooth riding, with absolutely no spinning. I personally have no use for it for the riding around here but people who live in snowmobile country and want to venture off the trail should consider one. Steering is a little harder but not bad at all, turning radius is larger, dealer said it took an hour to install and the price is around $3,200 US. This should be unstoppable in mud and sand or even in rocky terrain. I wish I had money to burn because it's almost worth it just playing in parking lots!

Two people from thelot followed me back to the dealership to purchase the whole set-up, one yellow 800 XT Max with the kit and a standard 800 with kit. Both had places up north.


The dealer wants me to ride it anytime in the parking lots, always willing to be a test guinea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The new issue of Dirt Wheels tests the BRP Apache kit on the Bomb 800 H.O. EFI (Feb. 06). They gave it a good review and write up - for what it's worth.
