P500 About to put my name on a P520


Nov 14, 2020

Do not currently own
I've always liked the size of the small Pioneer for narrow trails and the ability to get through tight places, and Honda's 5-speed geared transmission. I previously had a small MULE 610 (now SX) and loved the size.... not the power or ride though LOL. 3 things have held me back from buying a Pioneer 500.
1) No automatic mode (since incorporated for 2017 on)
2) Rear rack vs bed. I have a rack on my ATV and bed on a UTV and just find tossing stuff in the bed to be more convenient. (incorporated now on P520)
3) No rear differential (same as my ATV) which can be hard on trails and grass in tight turns.

Given that 2 out of the 3 have been addressed I think I'm going to put my name on one of the ones my dealer says will be arriving in January. I've been absorbing what I can about them on this forum which has been very helpful. I don't plan on farkling it out much (for now) but I imagine I'll add a half windshield and 25-26" tires with 1" rear spacers, and maybe a winch. Anyway looking at the 4 available colors I have eliminated camo simply because it comes at a premium, and blue just because for some reason I don't care for it on a UTV. That leaves olive which is more subdued, and of course the bright red. I've been going back and forth between these two and am leaning toward olive.
