probably availability and price of the new motor. I am sure it will come around though.

Well first off me not knowing shit would say very expensive right now!! Where ya gonna find a wrecked arty cat. Whose gonna buy one and steel the motor and ditch the rest. That would be the reasons... who is gonna buy a new motor straight up and then spend the moolah to put in the rhino...makes no sense unless you total your cat and gotta do something with the motor...Make Sense??????????????????????????????

I would have to agree, the cost of a new quad 1000 and not many people to sell the left over parts to like with the can-am, plus the cost of the new quad vs just buying the prowler isn't much of an incentive. But someone like CF with those deep pockets could try it.

If I knew that answer I would know whether to rebuild my car or just buy a prowler. Knowone has had one long enough to know.

I know that Dragonfire has plans to put the 1000 motor in their new "race production" Teryx. Their gonna give you an option over the 750. I'm sure its gonna be pricey though!
