get use to it. I had a rhino with 1200 miles when I sold it. I bought a po po and so far no problems and I have 1000 miles on it. Buy the S if you get a rzr for sure.

I agree. If you trail ride a lot, get the RZRS. If you need to haul, get a 4'x4' trailer to pull. My wife uses ours almost everyday to work on the property. I even taught her how to plow snow with it.

Wheel bearings are a part of maintenance on any SxS. Especially on an S.
Brakes are going to wear out on any SxS.
I have fixed about all the rattles in mine with rubber grommets, rubber matting cut up, etc..
Flip your front drive shaft.....it won't rattle any more.
You are going to go through tires on any SxS, especially 14" rim.
Just lube the hinges every now and then, they don't rattle.
Take your brakes apart, clean,clean,clean, soak in penetrating oil. They will be good for a good while.
The Rhino has some rattles....the RZR has squeaks.....lots of them.

Yeah, you are going to have to work on all SXS's. They are all built with ATV parts and they are twice the weight. It sucks but hey....... I guess we have to pay to play.

I have a rhino and a RZR.

You get what you pay for. If you buy the one that is on the lower end, you get the lower quality.

I got my rhino in Nov of 09. I did replace the tires but that was by choice. But everything else is good no problems at all. I just went over 1000 miles but I do clean and grease after ever dirty ride. For me I would still go with a rhino. Just a good trail machine. 2cents

Rhino is a great machine. Mine squeaked a little.......replaced brakes, bearings, etc. Still high quality and well built, IMO.

I don't want to know how many times I have changed the brakes on mine! The stock bearings did good but aftermarkets I am having no luck with, I am fixing to change them again. Only annoying squeak my rhino has is the rear brakes and I am fixing to set down and see if I can do something about that(when I get time).

Over all I got to say the Rhino is worth all the work! to me it is just part of the fun! But I love my garage and I drive a Ford so I needed something to work on...lol

I bought my rhino new in 08.Other than making it safe for a good crash I've put 1500 miles on it for the price of brake pads, a set of tires,belt and clutch resurface. Of course the torqe limiter in the front driveshaft is limited out lol! but I'll fix it this winter.I'm hard on equipment and I've been around a few differant motorsports.That is good in my eyes for the punishment I put to it.I'm weening myself off Rock Crawling because the cost.This winter I'm going to do some tweeking to the Rhino chassis to make it a little more rock capable to satisfy needs, when needed.I plan on staying in the SXS's for a while.I'm P.M.ing Big R back and forth so I can be a supporting vendor on here.I'm a compulsive fabricator.I'm not biased with any of them but they all have there faults.I've worked on Rhino's, RZRs,and currently working on a Teryx.Lets put our squeeks, rattles,and crunches behind us and break something we can complain about. Oh yea hope to see some of you in the trail in the future so I can put faces to some of you Chug

My RZR squeaks here and there. Between the radio, exhaust on the other people around me I never notice. If you clean and grease all the bushings, bolts, ect its dead silent. But after a few mud holes and creek crossings it squeaks again.. The bushings on the outer A-arms don't have zerks. So I'm pretty sure thats where it comes from.
As far as parts, I've changed several bushings,bolts. Changed a wheel bearing, few ball joints, couple tierod ends also changed all the brake pads once. On top of that stuff lol, I've replaced the bed, roll cage, skid panel, went through about 3 body mounts. I beat the crap out of it and stuff breaks, wears out. Just goes with it. Tell you the truth I'm surprised I haven't had to replace more stuff..

Its constant maintenance on both my Rhino and RZR. I kinda of enjoy working on them though. Washing them is a different story.

The fix for the squeaks on my 09 RZRS was loosening the shock bolts, both upper and lower. Of course maintenance is part of it too. But the loosening bolts stopped 90% of the squeaks. I have check them just to make sure they dont loosen further, and they havent. Oh I also replaced two bolts on the header heat shield that had disappeared. I still have one somewhere that sounds like a heat shield rattle or similar. Havent found it yet.

Can't wait to see you on the trails also!!!!!!

Now, I have replace a lot of stuff on both the RZR and Rhino. It is part of off roading..... I think the squeak many RZR S make come from the Fox shocks. I have the WER and no squeaks. However, I just replaced my rear brake pads and the caliper is rattling bad. Now that is pissing me off.

I have a 07 660 Rhino w/over 1000 miles and I must be very lucky I cant complain any. The brakes dont squeal, frame dont squeek. But I take the wheels off after every ride and put the hotsy to it. I have found if I wash the mud out of the brakes they dont make any noises but if there not cleaned good they will squeek. I grease the fittings every ride also. It is not uncommon to spend 2 hrs cleaning up after a ride. Then I spray it down with WD40.
