Rated 5 out of 5 by ilove21 from Great ride! I plow the drive way, pull dead fall out of my property “trees” and ride with little guy. The photo of the sway bar is to try to help solve a problem I believe your machine has. The sway bar will literally sway into your rear shock. This can be a fixed by raising the rear sway bar for more clearance or by adding lateral locks. I added lateral locks to mine. The adc is weird too the bike can literally go into a slide by just letting off the gas on wet pavement bc it has way to much engine braking. Every thing else I love! But I want to try to help you folks build a better machine if possible. “A real review “

Rated 5 out of 5 by ga boy from Polaris Convert Been riding Honda and Yamaha since the late '70s. Both quality manufacturers. But the power and fun factor of this Polaris is way more than I've ever experienced. And the quality, so far, is on par with the others. I do believe that my Polaris is as durable as they make but you have to understand that with the added power, you can break it, it has the power to do it. And secondly, if you want to cross the lake, buy a boat. I've ruined Honda's with water, and no one ever questions their quality. The power, the ride, the styling, and the build quality of this 1000 XP has no competition. Very pleased with and highly recommend to experienced riders looking for next level experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie 63 from Love this thing Bought a 450 in July. Loved it so much I bought the 1000 in October. Both are smooth, easy to ride, and reliable. Some service items can be a little challenging if you don't have a full set of tools. Both machines have plenty of power and are easy to ride. Have the premium on the 1000, the larger tires on it can slow you down in snow, but goes through the snow fine. Thought you might like to know that after I bought my 450, my daughter bought a 570, then my brother in law bought a 450, then my daughter's brother in law bought a side by side, the my son in laws buddy bought a 570, then I bought the 1000 and then I bought my 1000. All Polaris, all from Northway. Guess we like your products

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kev42 from Best Riding and most powerful ATV on the market I ride my atv on farms in Kentucky year round and in high altitude at 12k foot elevation, this atv does exactly what I was expecting and more. It has so much power, it isn’t even noticed at high altitude, was not affected by it. Endless power and the ride is absolutely smooth. I have 28” tires on it and it is rock solid stable and does not feel top heavy. When riding it, power steering makes it feel like I am riding something smaller, very easy for riding all day long. Rode 425 miles in high altitude 10k-12k foot elevation over 1.5 weeks, is a well built machine made to last. Gun mount keeps vibrating loose is my only complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wood laker from Great machine so far , better then my old canam ! I have only put on 350 km so far , no troubles but did have to tighten up front bumper bolts and one of the wheel caps fell off in the first 100 km. I do like the three position switch for adjusting the power output levels , that is one of the reasons I didn't buy the 850 model. I would recommend this model with all the factory installed accessories , but it dosent look like this model is available for 2020, what a shame ! Have not been to the dealer for service yet . Why doesn't it have a 2" receiver?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Robbie's Rides from I love it when it works properly! I bought this bike a couple months ago. On the first ride I had to replace the power steering unit after only 3 km. And then it ran great for a couple days. On the third ride, I had to replace the belt and the clutch do to a misalignment and Polaris only warrantied the parts. I walked away from the store with a large bill for labor. Not very happy about that! Now the four-wheeler is back in the shop as it constantly runs 10 degrees hotter than my friends 1000 that was purchased at the same time. Hopefully they can figure out what is going on with this bike As It Seems to have some issues. It is not my first bike, I own four other Polaris ATVs that do not have any issues. I wish Polaris would just buy this one back! And one more thing, right after I purchased the bike my local dealer parted ways with Polaris. They were the best dealership I had ever been to, I purchased all my machines there and also had them serviced there. Now I have to drive an additional half an hour to get my machines serviced and with the way this bikes been acting up it has been at the shop more than I've been riding. As you can see I'm a little disappointed with the reliability of this machine, but when it runs good I absolutely love it! Well, this is the honest review of my 2018 Polaris Sportsman XP Le Matt copper Edition. Sincerely, A frustrated but loyal Polaris customer

Rated 3 out of 5 by Firegod50 from Great ride! I traded in my Can-Am 1000 outlander for the Polaris Sportsman 1000, the Polaris falls flat on its face in the low end power compared to the Can-Am. Thinking about going back to Can-Am.
