Any good RZR owner knows to ride prepared. Before going out, packing along the proper tools as well as spare parts is always a must. But some times, unexpected accidents occur, ones that are unforeseen and unpredictable. So what should one do when in a situation such as this? Well, there are a few options, but it really just depends on what happened to your machine, where you are, and what you have at your disposal. So if you’re looking for some trail recovery ideas to get you back to camp with with broken a-arms, tie-rods or something else that broke to make the wheels not be able to rotate, here are some quick-fix solutions to help you get to where you’re going.
If you’re a solo rider, you should be particularly prepared for any situation that you may encounter. Never push your machine to the limits when you’re riding alone, especially if you’re deep in the back woods miles away from civilization. If you’re riding with a crew, however, you have a little more leeway when it comes to going hard and breaking things.
A friend of the site broke the front a-arms of his RZR when riding the OHV trails of the great Smokey mountains. Luckily, he came prepared with some basic tools and was able to take off both wheels, disconnect the shocks and a-arms, and strapped them up as high and possible. His riding buddy then tied a tow strap from the center lowest part of his front bumper to the highest center part of the back of his cage to keep the front end up as high as possible, which allowed his friend to tow him out to an easily accessible area for a truck and trailer to be brought in.
Broken tie rods are quite common, and there are a variety of ways to rig them up temporarily. Zip ties and hose clamps work great in a pinch, and can not only get you back home, but often times will allow you to keep riding throughout the weekend! There are almost endless ways to fab up trail crutches, and you’re really only limited by the scope of your imagination. Wrenches, straps, wire, whatever you have on hand could be used to make trailside repairs and enable you to limp back to the nearest garage for a permanent fix. Tie rod couplers are a handy tool to have for broken tie rods, and skid plates are sure useful if you need to drag your machine out without tires.
The old RZR mating mount is a classic trick to get your machine to safety, but you can also ratchet strap logs to the ports and radius rods and drag your rig back to your truck like some kind of military medic. A little influence from a hammer and a ratchet strap for the axel can go a long way in times of need.
If there’s any scrap metal near by — or if your desperate you can use your hood — slide your RZR up onto it and drag it out like a sled. If you’re lucky and have some strong friends, you may be able to get your RZR to safety with shear brute strength. But if you’re all by your lonesome and stranded without supplies, tools, or equipment, the only one you have to blame is yourself. You may have to hoof it a few miles to get help, or if you have cell service a quick phone call can be a life saver. CB radios and other UTV communication devices are also helpful when you’re in distress. Emergency position-indicating radiobeacon stations can be used as a last resort, but hopefully you’ll never need to use one. But as they say, it’s better to have it and not use it than need it and not have it.Continue reading

Some UTV enthusiasts say that the Polaris RZR RS1 is kinda thin with its 64” wheelbase. Others admit that it’s an impressive amount of machine for the money -- that is, if you don’t have a girlfriend or any friends. But if you’re never gotten a little solo throttle therapy, you don’t know what you’re missing. Continue reading

The first time you do a big jump on your Polaris RZR it is truly terrifying… that is, until you land on flat ground and don’t even feel it. Depending on what model and edition of the Polaris RZR you have, be it the single-seater RS1 or the turbo-charged RZR turbo, your machine might have come stock with great suspension components. But when you’re headed straight towards a takeoff with a wide open throttle running right up until the moment before you're airborne, it’s nice to know that your RZR is running the best UTV suspension setups to handle the landing.
