650 or 850

Now that I'm quite certain my next quad will be an Outlander max, I need to decide on the engine. With can ams offers right now, you get either $300 or 2 year extended warranty on the 650, with the 850 you get either $800 or $500 plus 2 year extended warranty. I'm definitely taking the warranty and if I go 850, the extra $500 will pay for the engine upgrade. I really don't care about the extra hp. but if both engines are roughly the same cost should I get the 850. I worry most about the heat, is one more reliable than the other. Thank you with all the help.

Personally I'd go for the 850, from my understanding there pretty much the same quad and if the rebate covers the difference always go with the bigger option, they're both gonna run hot so either way you'll have that to deal with, someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong I'm still kinda new

i would go 850 honestly. I have a 650 and it's amazing, nice power, and hasn't let me down yet (however i have less than 200 miles on it lol). However i am also looking forward to eventual purchase of something 'bigger' and in the 1000cc category down the road lol.

I would go with the 850 also, I don't think I have ever heard someone say, "God I wish I had less power" , but you do hear them say they wish they had more power.

My son's 450 Polaris goes everywhere my 650 Outlander goes. His quad only has 33 hp.

I did my research prior to buying my 650 new in 2016. Problem with these is high heat output and reduced fuel economy. Left side of my 650 gets burning hot in summer. 800 and 1000 will only be worse.

Unless you want to run tracks or huge mud tires, go with smaller displacement whenever you can.

Bigger is definitely not always better.

I was dead set on a 650 and went to the dealer to even buy one. But for the few extra hundred i got my 850 for i cannot complain one bit. My dad has a 570 and we switch back and forth a lot because why? He likes the power. If you can afford it get the 850.
