    If you go to the Honda pioneer forum most of the people that ride a lot are installing fans that were originally intended for boat bilges, 4". By pumping enough air into the engine area they are able to dissipate the heat. This is used along with the Honda kit and is supposed to make them bearable.

    Not at all on my Teryx. I was concerned about it too, but it's plenty low for me.

    I stopped by the Honda shop in Gaylord today. All new Honda Pioneers are red flagged for the heat shield. They cannot sell any new until they get the parts. There will be a recall for all existing units for that fix also. I was kind of leaning toward the Pioneer 700/4 Deluxe, but the guy at the store said they don't even stock them, order only. He said the 1000 is only about $2k more and a better unit with the 6 speed trans, 5 passenger seating and not as noisy. I wonder if that's the real reason, or there's an issue with the 700??? Haven't heard anything but good revues from 700 owners.

    They must have 150 units, or more in Gaylord, Honda, Polaris, Can Am, Yamaha and maybe more. Almost all UTV's, Razr's etc, few 4 wheelers.

    Guess it's back to the drawing board for me. I've had such good luck with Honda ATV's, I'm still leaning toward the Pioneer to replace my Ranger.

    Are their prices any better at the store vs their online prices?

    Probably because Arctic Cat don't make them anymore! A new company bought the ATV/utv line, Trexton, and are making the same old designs.

    They bought all of Arctic Cat including snowmobiles. Their ATV/UTV line has never impressed me.
