No, but I wanted to, big-time. The right set-up would be sweet on a Rhino. Width would not increase enough to be a problem, in most cases, but the plushness you would get suspension-wise would rock!!! And you can use the stock-Rezzies or stock-re-springed shocks with most of the kits. You also get the benifit of some lift also.

I wanted to go +3 as soon as we got our Rhino. Everyone I talked to said it wouldn't fit in some places we ride. I went with spacers and fit. I then changed to 2+5 on the rear and fit. The thing I didn't like ....... we could not have got more muddy if we had rolled in it!!!!! I just went back to 5+2 and no spacers.

SXS's have been around long enough now that most of the used trails are wide enough for a +3.

Yeah, a year ago I would have told you that 60" is way to wide to fit in the woods. I was wrong.

With the wheels I have now 5+2 the rhino would be about 62" wide. I don't think I will have any real problems getting around.

62 wide with a good set of shocks would be sweet on the rhino. I know a few trails around here where I would not fit without trimming a few trees but it would be worth it for the handling.

You can always find away around. I thought 60" would not fit and it does just fine.

It all depends on if the deal comes through. If it does then it is a no brainer. If not, then the mid travel is going on the rhino. Also, I might take you up on the help.....

Good luck bro,

I hope you get the mid travel I'd like to see it in action compared to the other SxS's.

I think it looks cool. It still won't have the power you are looking for, but it sure would ride nice.

Ronnie, did you ever put the Dynatek on? Did you notice a difference?

Yes, I put the Dynateck on at the last Windrock ride. It started acting up so I had to disconnect it. However, the short time it worked it made a big difference. I have put an email in to them and see if they will fix it for me.

I am torn between buying an S, then buying all new crap for the RZR and spend thousands. Or add some engine mods to the Rhino and mid Travel kit. I am going to do something soon.

ronnie i know i will get bashed for this but if i was you i would leave my engine COPLETELY stock with the exception of cdi,clutch sheave.Or you will be replacing axles left and right,because the stock or 99% of aftermarket axles cannot handle the extra power,but donnt blow up your motor just because you want about 5-6 more hp,but it is entirely your decision

I doubt you are goint to see the 850 in the RZR anytime in the near future. You might see it at the end of 2010 or possilby summer 2011, but I was not willing to wait 2 extra years. I wanted to ride now. 2cents I was told by at least three people I was stupid for buying my S when I did because the 850 motor was bound to be in the 2010 model. Guess what..... ownedsm

Gunny It probably would be less. However, I would hate to spend the money on the Rhino and not be happy. I can get a regular RZR and still be happy.

I just logged a few hundred miles on an 08 RZR and it was a lot of fun. Hell I don't think you have to have an S ..... it would just be nice to have one....... That was a lot of HAVES Mid Travel Kit....... 13435
