I noticed you have a 1635 Massey Ferguson.... I almost bought one of those but noticed they belong to the Agco / Iseki group. I didn't wait for the train to stop.... I jumped off ! Good luck.
Honda atv's and utv's are built in Timmonsville, SC (about 40 mins from my house). I think Yamaha and Suzuki build their atv's in GA. Arctic Cat is also made in the USA if I remember correctly. Not sure where kawasaki builds theirs but Can-am is Canadian.
make the biggest ATV now, too, at 1000cc and 1000#. Wow. BRP has a partnership
deal, I believe, with Kymco of Taiwan for one or 2 of their models. Similar to the
Polaris-Aeon Motor deal perhaps.
I don't know where Kawasaki does final assy, either, but I suspect in the US somewhere
for the NA market. I have a KLF220 Bayou, and it is interesting: all mechanical brakes
(no hydraulics). They used to partner with Suzuki on the sporty quads, but I think that
may be over. Kawasaki may be the only major ATV maker with a rear differential...anyone
have a Prairie 300 2WD with the differential option? I would like to hear about that one.
Moved up from a Yamaha Kodiak to this Grizzly. I really like the bigger engine and the fuel injection. Use it to plow the drive and pull a little dump trailer for yard work. And it's fun just to bop around the property. I think a utv would be overkill for me, but an enclosed cab would be nice plowing snow.
Good point, my Kawasaki has fuel injection, and I wouldn't go back to carburetor.Quote:

I have a 2012 RTV900 Camo w/roof & windshield. I just rolled up 100 hours. I have zero complaints, and love the machine. My prior machine was a Mule 2510, which was bullet proof reliable, but I must say, this RTV900 is superior in every way, with exception of acceleration. The fun factor was greater with the Mule, but this RTV is a workhorse/tank!
