i tested it out on a grizzly at a demo thing and i could acually tell a good difference. i dont know how well its going to hold up but it is a nice feature.

The only way that i could see that helping the foreman is if you put a locker in the front end it may make it eisier to turn in 4wd but other then that i think that it just another big price tag to fix if it broke

I'm perfectly happy with the way mine steers without the power assist.I too agree that the power steering just complicates things more.However,my wife's uncle has only one arm and he loves to ride ATV's,power steering would really make it easier for him to ride.Power steering would be great for people with those types of disabilities.

yes it is.

We won't be seeing them in the dealership until spring. The Honda is very similar to the Yamaha. Supposedly the powersteering is one of those features that make riders wish they had a long time ago, it works that good and makes the long rides that more comfortable. On the Grizzly, even in diff lock, you can turn the bars w/ one finger. Can't wait to try one myself.

My daughter has the new Grizz. I've ridden it several times, and have mixed feelings about it. The assist makes it almost too easy to turn. Of course, I'm use to the ride of my 500. My daughter had a rough time riding the 500. She's small framed and it really bothered her by the end of the day. The trails we typically ride are rocky, and this is where she struggled. The yamie definitely solved this problem. For me, I don't think I'd want it. Situations like this, and the one described earlier, yes its very nice.

The Honda is better than the Yammer just because of location. I've already heard of people jamming stuff into the p.s. motor on the Yammerhammer. The Honda is in different location where it is protected better.

I might just look into the power steering in two years. Maybe by then they'll be on the Ruby.
