    The guy told me he did not do them yet. It has 350 miles on it. I called the dealer and they said they could take care of it if they were not already done. Do you know how long it takes to do these updates. I understand a lot probably has to with how busy they are. Are the updates free to me?

    Get a copy of the warranty repair order stating the updates were completed. The clutch update is a must have.

    image.jpeg Once you get it, you'll love it! I have a 1000-5. I also have a 700-2 which is a Great machine! You'll have friends who will want one after you get yours. Let em know about my 700-2, it's for sale
    The 700 WILL GO and has gone ANYWHERE the 1000 will go. Besides top end speed (which no one ever really uses much) the only major difference is the 1000 has a little more low end torque.
    I do like the width of the 700 more though. Around the local parks here, I've found some places where the 1000 had to find a detour due to width betw trees.
    Well, welcome to the "FAMILY"! image.jpeg

    I picked up a 1000-5 last year (a 2017 model after the 2018s came out) and really have enjoyed it. The only advantages I can see for the P500 (besides cost) is the ability to haul it in the back of a pick-up and meeting trail width restrictions (if that is an issue).

    You can put the 1000 on top of bed too. ca32d61d9cdaf838bb4dbf431c708dc1.jpg

    I think your comment was just a little unfair! What you would or would not trade for is totally irrelevant and shadows the real issue. The P5 is very capable durable and Honda reliable. In my case the 700 or 1000 will not fit(width) where we play or spend our time. Also the 1000 will not fit our toy hauler so not knowing the gentleman circumstance your opinion is just that not relevant. Not to mention perhaps this gentle man has a budget-familylies usually do....

    I'm not sure what you're bent about. The OP laid out his circumstances and ask for opinions and got them.

    If I was you I would look into the P500 or 700 4 seater. The 1000 sounds like a waste of money for what you plan on doing with it. Shop around if possible, I drove 100 miles to a Honda dealer because they were willing to throw in a free roof & windshield just to earn my business.

    Make the recall installs part of the sale then because they would get them done for free at their dealership.

    The clutch and heat fixes were done at my local dealership at no cost. I got mine off craigslist. I would check with them ahead of time, but it shouldn't be a problem.

    I got the 700 when it came out and was not happy with it so I ordered a 1000-5 as soon as they came out the a year later I decided I needed a 500.
    I still own the 1000-5 and the 500. I needed to 500 for the 50” trails and it is fun for that
    If I could just have one it would be the 1000-5 because it carries more people, rides better and has a lot more power.
    With that said the 500 is a lot of machine for the money and I am not sorry I bought it.

    Hello, I have purchased a new pioneer 500 it does seem to be able to do what I need. But they are some things that don't right suit me. The leg room uncomfortable on the driverside, the extreme heat from the motor up through the seats, lack of storage.

    I test drove a 700 and 1000 on the big rock the dealership has to show-off the new models. The 700 nearly tipped on its side!. I was really unhappy and my wife was pissed. We then did the 1000 on the same rock, but faster, and she looked at me and said "you can have one". Need I say more? If you're married you know just how important that is.

    I must be in a mood today...but i have doubts that the 1000 has any significant stability advantage over the 700. It's a bit bigger, sure...its also got a much heavier engine sitting up higher (check the GC for both). Don't let the big tall ROPS fool you.
