    Mechanically the Polaris was junk, wiring harness issues, fuel mapping issues. You really had to rev up the Polaris to get it moving! you just lightly throttle the Honda and it goes. Noise wise the Pioneer is much quieter at normal cruising speeds, it is a little bit loud at 25mph under a load like going up a steep hill. The Honda is a real nice high quality piece, the ride is somewhat stiff and it feels like the front is stiffer than the rear. Air pressures helped a ton, dealer had 15 psi nd I'm running at 8. The tranny is incredible, plenty of power, I have not missed low range at all, the locked rear diff is a pain in the yard, but just watch how tight your turning and it doesn't tear up the grass.

    What quality did u feel was missing from the 800xp u traded for the pioneer and also, how does the engine noise compare in the cab when cruising at 20-ish mph? Does the honda seem to have the quality you were seeking?
