thanks for the info jimmy454jrc I will look into the bombardier as an option as there is a dealer not to far from me tell you the truth I never even thought of them as an option. Just one question though anyone know how dependable the Visco-Lok is ?

The visco lock works pretty well but not as good as the differential lock on the grizzly when in tough mud and situations. I have a grizzly 660 and my friend has a bomb. He put larger mud tires on his bomb 27s and it comes from the factory with 26s. The visco started going in and out at random and was hard to control turned out the mechanic said you are suppose to stick with the factory 26in tires. You can swap tread if you want to, but you have to stick with the 26in tires for the visco to work correctly. There is no way to fix the problem except to stick with the factory sized tires. So he put his 26s back on and no problems. His bomb is very fast but I can stay right with him in the trails, go thru mud better, but if we hit a straight away he can go about 83 to my 72, but how often can you go 70 or 80 in the trails, so it's no big deal to me. The bomb is also very expensive and not really worth it. He rides my grizzly and loves it, he says he can't tell the difference in the power. You can buy a grizz for about $6400 if you look around, the bomb is around $9000 and not really $2600 better in my opinion. He and I think that the grizz is a much better looking atv. The front of a bomb looks like a volvo to me, there not very good looking.
But they are very fast top end. Just my opinion.
