Hi. We had 4 years of trouble free riding until yesterday. My brother in law and I are the only two Honda’s in A family of Polaris and Canams. We all slowly crossed a deep beaver pond that was top of seat deep and we P1000-5’s ended up sucking water in gas vent tubes. We manually pumped enough out to limp home. We got some good help from this awesome Honda SxS Club. We had never been in water that deep and were being mindful of our under hood intakes and now we will at least raise the gas vent tube. I still love my Honda. :)

Well I’ve had no problems with my 2018LE 1000-5
Was invited to what they call a poker run they said it wasn’t a race so I brought my ride
Well let’s say that wasn’t the case! showed up there about 200 to 300 rides out there most of them were souped up Can-Am‘s and razors I found myself being the lone pioneer
There was four of us in my ride kept it in The new i 4wheel-drive and the race was on for 6-7 hours on hard core riding in 90 degree temp
Had to climb vertical hill tops with front end coming off the ground through sand tracks so deep I shined my Skid plate
Wash board that would shake you till your teeth rattle
Adjusted the Suspension to the hardest setting made the ride a lot more comfortable
So basically I beat the crap out of it and never had a problem

I can't speak to mine because it only has 100 miles. But the reason I bought Honda was because of the endless problems the Polaris owners were having. Most of the farmers have been switching in this area because of that and poor dealership service. They got comfortable being the only dealer around and now it'c coming back to bite them.

Yes once again after my son and I disassembled and cleaned out the gas tank after the beaver pond incident ours and my brother in-laws runs like the day we purchased them. I have just over 2600 miles on ours. Only oil and filter changes.
