All I can say is that I was VERY HAPPY at the way it ran. Took i up to Stoddard Wells in Barstow, CA and broke it in. Went up with some family friends with a RZR 1000. The Viking took on everything we threw at it and performed flawlessly on some good trails. The kids were stoked and can't wait to get it out again! Here's a pic of the family getting ready. Also just put the new wheels on the day before!

What size tires are you running?
So your pleased with the VI performace? Was there any time u wished the VI had a bit more power with the whole family on board?

I ask because I am looking hard a crew SXS and want the best bang for the buck. I am looking for some honest opinions from owners to help me with my purchase.

I am running the stock tire with 12x7 4+3 Vision 550. Yes the center caps do fit! I was thinking about going bigger, but as I get older, I feel that these machines are designed to get the most performance and reliability out of ea h component. Yes I could have gone bigger, but I did not see the need.o
You always want more power, but at no point did I say dang this thing needs to go a little faster or needs more torque. That to me all depends on what your goals are. This is my break in period so I varied the terrain, rpms, and speed during the time we were out there. It goes fast, not super fast! It has a great suspension, not awesome. It sure has a lot of room for the family and is a Yamaha.

I don't think you can find a better sxs out there for the money. I wholeheartedly recommend the VI.

Before you upload your pics. Hit edit, flip, save, edit again, flip right side up , save, and good to go. I sold my V-6 because at 35-40 mph with 2 adults and 3 kids under 8 , I felt it was very under powered , and seemed it was maxed out on flat trails at them speeds. I was running 27" tires that dint help either.
