    I had a teryx4 and the pioneer 1000 is better in so many ways. The heat is tolerable and even somewhat fixable.

    I've heard there's heat in Kawasaki you can't fix and I wouldn't like extra wheel base

    I’ve had both; Loved mine...wrecked it, my brother owns one now, let me be clear I’m pro Honda...that said it depends on your likes & needs, that Kawasaki is a pretty neat machine, Fox shocks, a real 4-seater, more comfortable to ride in, it is quieter, cheaper to buy, some neat factory accessories. It does have a smaller engine and is belt drive, although seat of the pants dyno I think it has more torque racing up a sand dune or I still don’t know how to operate the P5. I prefer the Honda, but, because it’s convertible as to utility or being a 5 - seater (hauling kids), more power, faster, automatic transmission, bigger overall, etc.

    As far as the heat...anything mid engine which they both are is hot, we had to insulate and modify both.

    How big is back seat comfort to you?

    Much = Kawi.
    f*** 'em, they can take it or get their own ride = Honda.
    Or if they are just for kids, then I'll go with the script and say honda, but I still see a lot of kawi's out there and hear very few complaints. I believe @hondabob has said it was the most durable of the belt drive machines he owned, so maybe he will chime in.

    My mechanic says the belts are good for about 200 hours, I'm my case he was right on track.
    They belt is not near as easy to change in the field like a Razor, plus they have to be shimmed.
    Really about the only draw back is the belt, 4-seater and 700cc.

    Then you'd be in the "f*** 'em" group.

    How many miles is that?
    Yeah...the Kawi is a b**** to get to the belt.
