    Pros: Great low end torque and pulling power. Large comfortable machine.
    Cons: No top end speed.

    Summary: I recently purchased the Yamaha Big Bear 2WD after riding a Honda Four Trax 300 4X4 for the past 10 years. For what I do with an ATV, the 4WD really wasn't necessary, unless I was riding in deep mud, snow, or if I had to go over large fallen trees. The ... read more

    Pros: good top speed, can run through trails, decent torque for its class
    Cons: not made for thick mud, not 4x4, not good for pulling ATV's out of water

    Summary: I live in Georgia, and in Georgia people who have four-wheelers take it to the extreme. sadly said this four-wheeler couldn't take the heat. This four wheeler can ride through water real good but, can't ride through mud at all once it's deeper than a ... read more

    Cons: SLOW, SLOW, SLOW, NO TOP END, shifter is too tight, oh yeah, SLOW, SLOW, SLOW

    Summary: Hi, I know this is for 2001 ATV's but since my 2000 is the same model, I thought it wouldn't matter. Mine is used for ferrying fisherman and gear up and down the outer banks of North Carolina. It will carry two people, a cooler, rod holder and all the ... read more
