i have 250 miles now the prowler and i hate more than the 700 i had.i thought the jerkyness would have been corrected from the 700 ...so the dealers told me. tonight i tried backing my prowler up with a small trailer behind(empty) and could hardly get it to back up with out being on the gas to much or to little. is there any cure for this? or am off to the polaris dealer shiponday for the xp hd?

OK I took my xtz out today on a pretty rough 4x4 trail with a ton of rocky obstacles, and the throttle is too damn touchy in low gear that is for sure!!

:)Just like any rock crawler off offroad machine you need to learn the querks of the machine...If you press on the brakes lightly and the throttle lightly at the same time you can control the unload...try it a few times and i think you will like the outcome.:)

I agree I finally figured this out towards the end of the ride.. practice makes perfect.

I took the spring off the gas peddel and re bent it a little it took a couple tries but I got it just right to where it returns fast enough but is a very light peddel it help a lot, smooth as silk now, made the tight trails a lot more fun.

They are all like that. At first I looked like an idiot. Now I don't even think about it. Takes a while but when you figure it out it's no problem.

I also have a steep ramp so I go in 4-low and lock the front. Works good for me.

ok guys got the prowler back today. wow what a difference my dealer made. he changed the angle of the pedal and lowered it .changed the stiffness of the throttle spring and put a small block of wood on the pedal with tie wraps. i now rate the thing a 9.5 out of 10. also during my week without my prowler he loaned me a rhino 700. deffinetly no jerkyness there shifted smothly but too small hate the door's and no top speed. but still yamaha fit and finish. if yamaha come out with a beefier rhino 900 four seater i will be trading.
