Tips for our new RZR owners Empty
PostSubject: Tips for our new RZR owners   Tips for our new RZR owners EmptyTue Aug 18, 2009 3:07 pm

Ive had one for a year now and there are a few good tips ive learned that you guys might not know, i thought i would pass on.
]1 Never spray water directly above the motor when washing! The cvt exhaust port is there can easily get water in it which will drain down and cause the belt to be wet and not let you move till it dries out. Oh and there is no drain on the belt housing.
2] For best dust protection, order a outerware cover for your air filter. 12.00 from Outerware.
3] You need a parking brake! Never stop on a hill or incline and put in park, you may not be able to get it back in gear. you can get the good parking brake kit or use the metal pole one posted in this section, but you will need one!
4] Put a good marine grease around the airbox lid, it helps keep water and dirt out.
5] Find your front vent line for the diff and re-route it to the highest point it will go and drill a hole in the plastic firewall and run it inside, if you hit a lot of water this way it will keep it all out.
6] you will want to add a block off kit, there is a 4'' gap between the body and the firewall and if you hit water or mud it will be in your lap without one. A polaris kit is 49.00 that seals this area as well as each front fender well.
7] Be sure your hood fits and snaps in tight in front or you may be without it after a trip down the interstate.
8] You will have two annoying rattles, one is the grab handle, take a hammer and a piece of wood and smack it together a little with the handle out then it will be a snug fit.
The next one will be the stainless steel plate under the bed, remove bed and put high temp silicon on the frame rail where it sits to stop it.
9] If your speedometer starts flashing a wrench icon don't worry, its a resettable service reminder.
10] If you plan or dont on going thru water or mud its best to put dielectric grease on all the connectors down low and dont forget the ecu behind the seat.
11] When filling the tank, when the pump cuts off it is not full, it will hold another nearly 2 gallons by adding it a little at a time and rocking the roll bar.
If i think of anything else i will add it later allright

The one to pay the most attention too is the front dff vent tube, Bush demolished his front diff when the tube filled with mud and water going thru those deep holes in west va.

yes, in the front under the hood tray, just drill a hole in the firewall and run it inside out of the muck and mess.

New Tip:

If you own a Rzr S don't even think of taking it to Utah to the Paiute Trail. It will not fit through the gates...

Yeah, the 50" restriction does not make sense to me. I guess it is to keep Jeeps and crawlers out????

The 50" restriction on the Paiute is only on the difficult tight sections. Of the 300 mile loop we rode maybe 50 miles of restricted area. Really nice but scary. I'll admit I was very impressed of the Rzr -- it turned as sharp as my Outlander. One section of restricted is the section outside of Circleville and has 400+ feet drop-offs beside tight switchbacks. After that section I mentioned that my Rhino would never be able to do that. The 50" Rzr can be handy.

I'm sure the 50" RZR can do great things. I just prefer to have the extra width. It sure would not help to have an S in those trails though.
