Zuuk Personally, I think my 2019 KQ 750 PS is just right , I donít notice itís there! I notice it more on rough rock trail where the steering dampening is awesome, compared any none PS models (like my older BF).

Kingquader If anyone wants to see how their quad with ps would be without ps .just take out the ps fuse under seat. I know this for the kq I tried it...

krabill Just an update, I got the no power steering model and think it totally fine, its lightyears ahead of my old vinson. If you never had power steering you are not going to miss a thing.

Suzuki75033 Thanks for all your responses, appreciate it. I was also looking into putting a speedohealer on the king quad that way i could possibly trick the ecu to thinking im going slower so maybe ill get more power steering at faster speeds. Anyone ever try that?

Drew van Hoof One other thing that helped me a lot, I moved my bars up/forward a good 4 inches from where they were set from the dealership, this really helped a lot with leverage, but I still wish I could move the ends of the bars another few inches forward, I hate the way the ends are swept back like a harley road glide.

Drew van Hoof Guys here's the truth about the 2019 king that for some reason isnt really well known despite suzuki putting it in their press material for the release of the new bike, on the power steering models the front end geometry is pretty radically changed to give much greater high speed stability, which was the one knock against the previous generations. But the price for that stability is increased effort, so the power steering unit is 30% higher output, they also made the bars narrower and more swept back for comfort but this of course reduces leverage, so when you add it all up a lot of the magazine testers said the steering effort actually felt harder than last year.
The other thing that seemed to slip by everyone is that the 2019 non power steering king quads still have the old toed in geometry so riding them back to back with the EPS bikes makes it really tough to tell the difference in steering effort, personally I love the new front end geometry and have no problem at all with the steering effort, but I do wish they would have left the bars alone, in fact I'm going to swap my 19 bars out with the old bars which are wider lower and give more leverage.
As for the comparison with the grizzly, I also have a 19 kodiak, same exact bike except for bodywork, and yes it's less effort at the bars, but it's also much more toed in and the bars are nice and wide and flat with very little sweep, but like someone else said in exchange for that you get a little more flightiness at higher speeds. Hope this helps.

Bloomboy I don't think I would trade your KQ for a Grizzly. Even in 4x4 the KQ is pretty close to the Grizzly and in diff Lock, I think the KQ is easier than the Grizzly. Hope this helps.

Would you say theres a big enough difference in 4x4 to sell the king quad and get the grizzly? i want tracks in the worst way and want to make sure i have the best machine for the job, but at the same time i already bought the king quad and dont wanna make the switch over minimal difference at this point?
