  • Everything Polaris RZR Reaches New Heights

    The ever-increasing practicality of side-by-sides in conjunction with new features, more options, and greater versatility has not only persuaded existing Polaris RZR owners to upgrade their machines, but it has also convinced non-UTV owners to jump headfirst into the off-road lifestyle. And as these newly-christened side-by-sides make their way into the homes and hearts of riders around the world, the ballooning demand for aftermarket Polaris RZR accessories increases in lockstep. The thrill seekers can now go faster, the adventurers can now go further, and the leisure riders can now ride with friends and family knowing that their safety and well-being won’t be compromised. And despite all the differences between these disparate riding groups exists a central commonality, and that is the need for sound advice, proper user guidance, and high-quality products at affordable prices. Because Everything Polaris RZR provides all these things and much more, it has sustained unprecedented rates of growth over the past few years.

    In fact, Everything Polaris RZR’s parent company, Gear Up 2 Go, ranked number 1,965 on Inc. Magazine’s list of the Top 5,000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America during 2020, an accolade that is attributable to several key factors. Sector-wide changes such as manufacturers producing UTVs with greater passenger capacity has helped the industry broaden its target customer base. Instead of being an individual activity for diehard motor heads and adrenaline junkies, riding off-road Utility Terrain Vehicles is now something the everyday family man or woman can enjoy. Plus, through deregulations on the city, county, and state levels, the increasing on-road legalization of UTVs has led to them being used more and more as commuter vehicles and day-to-day transportation machines. Add to this features such as in cab heating / cooling, top-of-the-line speakers and stereo systems, and all the creature comforts you might find in a car or truck, and it’s little wonder why Polaris RZR sales are surging.

    In addition to our customer-centric methodology and steadfast commitment to helping Everything Polaris RZR users customize their Polaris Razors in a multitude of ways, another thing that sets us apart from the competition is our broad approach to aftermarket side-by-side customizations. Some retailers focus exclusively on speed riders, while others stick to selling parts for sand and mud riders. At Everything Polaris RZR, however, we provide products for everyone from hunters and outdoorsmen to trail riders and competitive racers. Whether you ride desert dunes, steep mountains, or thick peanut butter mud, we’ve got the domain-specific parts, components, and accessories you require to dominate on any terrain!

    Ever since the company’s founding over a decade ago, our mission has always been to provide the maximum amount of benefits to the maximum number of riders at the lowest possible cost. And under the guidance of Michael Lutes, we’ve been able to adhere to this mission through thick and thin. In his own words, Mr. Lutes was recorded saying that, “I am so proud of the amazing team we have built!  Our company is made up of 50+ people that come in every day and give 110% to serve our customers and make Gear Up 2 Go a better place to work! We have a management team that is out of this world and this award is a testament to their leadership.  Our company is not big into awards but what we are into is surpassing our customer's expectations, and this is just a recognition of that, which we are all very proud of." 

    Awards and accolades are great, but they pale in comparison to the amazing feedback we’ve received from our valued customers. As off-road enthusiasts ourselves, we love sharing our passion and helping others realize the tremendous joys that can be had from owning a Polaris RZR! 

  • Buyer's Guide: Factory Specs For The Polaris RZR Tire Size, Wheel Size, Wheel Offset, And Bolt Pattern

    For inexperienced riders, the amount of information there is to learn about Polaris RZR tires and wheels can seem overwhelming at first. Even experienced riders may not hold all there is to know about RZR tires and rims at the top of their heads. But regardless of the particular Polaris RZR year and edition that you own, there are a few stock tire and wheel specs that you should know when making considerations about adjusting, augmenting, or modifying your machine. Furthermore, if you’re simply looking into replacement factory RZR tires / wheels, a spare tire, or stock-style lug nuts, knowing the pertinent details about your side-by-side will save you from getting the wrong parts and accessories!  

    Stock Rim Bolt Pattern For The Polaris RZR Lineup

    Aside from the youth-size Polaris RZR 170 — which has a bolt pattern of 4/110 — all other Polaris RZR editions have a wheel bolt pattern of 4/156. This includes both the Polaris RZR 1000 and RZR 4 1000 as well as the RZR XP Turbo, the RZR Pro XP, and the 800, 900, and 570 RZR models. Even the one-seater Polaris RS1 uses a 4/156 bolt pattern, which greatly simplifies things with consistency across almost all Razor vehicles. 

    Stock Lug Nut Specs For The Polaris RZR Lineup

    There are two main variations of stock lug nut sizes that Polaris uses for its RZR-branded side-by-sides — with the RZR 170 again being an outlier with 10mm x 1.25 lug nuts. Vehicles like the Polaris RZR 1000, Polaris RZR Turbo, and Polaris RS1 have stock lug nuts that measure 12mm x 1.5, while vehicles such as the 2011-2014 Polaris RZR 900 and RZR 4 900 as well as the RZR 800, RZR S 800 and RZR 570 have stock lug nuts that measure 3/8” x 24 — with the latter number indicating that there are 24 threads for every inch of length. 

    If you’re running aftermarket rims, you will likely need to use thin-wall lug nuts or spline-drive lug nuts, because even if the lugs themselves fit through the rims, you might not be able to fit a socket around them to ensure proper tightness. 

    Stock Tire And Wheel Sizes For The Polar RZR Lineup

    The Polaris RZR 1000, Polaris RZR 4 1000, Polaris RS1, and Polaris RZR XP Turbo all come stock with the same size tires and wheels, which measure 29x9-14 in the front and 29-11-14 in the rear. The first numbers are the diameter and width of the tire measured in inches, and the second number is the diameter of the rim. For the 2011-2014 Polaris RZR 900 and four-door 900, the stock tire and rim size is 27x9-12 in the front, and 27x11-12 in the rear — although some models come stock with wider 27x12-12 rear tires. 

    As one might expect, the stock Polaris RZR tire and rim size gets smaller as you progress downward on the horsepower scale. The Polaris RZR 800 and 800 S come with 26x9-12 front tires and wheels, and 26x12-12 rear tires and wheels (however some models have 27” stock tires). Moving down the CC ladder even further, the Polaris RZR 570 comes stock with 25x8-12 fronts and 25x10-12 rears, while the youth-size RZR 170 has 19x7-8 front rims and tires with 20x10-9 rear rims and tires.  

    When comparing stock Polaris RZR tire and wheel sizes to those of aftermarket RZR tires and wheels, it should be noted that some run slightly smaller in diameter, while others run true to size. A set of 28” Roctane tires, for example, will be noticeably taller than a set of 29” Bighorn tires, whereas a set of aired-down 30” Terrabite tires will measure at around 28-3/4” at 12psi.

    Stock Wheel Offset For The Polaris RZR Lineup

    The factory Polaris RZR rims measure at 5.44 + 0.56, giving them a stock offset of 6+1 or 5+2. The offset your Polaris RZR wheels have is the length from the mounting surface on the hub to the centerline of the wheel. The hub mounting surface on rims with no offset are flush with the wheel’s centerline, whereas wheels with negative offset are extended further outward, and wheels with positive offset are positioned more underneath the vehicle.  

    If you’re considering wheels with non-stock offsets or backspacing, remember that when you alter the offset, you also change the inclination of the king pin, which will affect the handling of your UTV. A 4+3 offset, for example, will give you a lot of feedback through the steering wheel and make your steering system feel heavier, and it will also put more stress on the steering components and wheel bearings. Because of this, we’d suggest sticking as close to stock as possible. After all, there’s a reason why Polaris chose to use the backspacing that they do!

    Closing Remarks

    A large number of riders choose to deviate from the stock Polaris RZR tire and wheel specs. And with accessories like wheel spacers, lift kits, rim adapters, and forward a-arms, the ability to alter the size and style of your Polaris RZR tires and wheels has become increasingly easy to do. While we’re not suggesting that swapping out your stock tires and rims is a bad idea, we would recommend doing a bit of research before altering your stock Polaris RZR tires and wheels!

  • Rough Country’s Top 3 Best-Selling Polaris RZR Accessories

    Trusting the marketing team of a company is one thing. But when it comes to aftermarket accessories for the Polaris RZR, it’s much better to get your information from actual riders. And while we could spout praises and platitudes about the off-road firm Rough Country all day long, we will instead pass along our insider information about the popularity of their products. We do live in a democracy after all, and what’s more democratic than allowing people to vote with their hard-earned dollars. 

    Take what you read at face value, and place your trust in the experiences of riders who have put the various accessories by Rough Country to the test in real-life situations. In some cases, groupthink and herd mentality can adversely affect the sense making apparatus of populations. But in other cases, leveraging the knowledge and experience of the crowd can lead to maximum benefits for all. So, based on our metrics, here are the top three most popular Rough Country-Branded Polaris RZR accessories.

    Number 1: Rough Country’s Polaris RZR 4,500 Lb Electric Winch

    Although racers often steer clear of winches due to weight reasons, almost all trail riders use Polaris RZR winches in some form or another. And this is one of the reasons why Rough Country’s 4,500 Lb Polaris RZR winch is so popular. Their waterproof UTV winch is compatible with synthetic winch lines, which not only have an optimized strength-to-weight ratio, but also don’t rust or corrode like steel winch lines do. The powerful 1.4 horsepower motor within the Rough Country’s 4,500 Lb winch may not seem like a lot, but when coupled with the winch’s 166:1 gear reduction ratio and differential planetary gear train, the end result is a winch that can power through the toughest of situations to come out the other end victorious! 

    Compared to other Polaris RZR winches of similar size and quality, Rough Country’s 4,500 Lb electric winch is competitively priced, easy to install, and extremely long-lasting. You can use it to recover your bike from over four feet of peanut-butter mud in the morning, then use it to lift your machine so you can wash underneath it when you get back home. And  because the winch comes with a clevis hook, a hawse fairlead, and all the requisite hardware and wire harnesses, all you need is a mount and you’re good to go! 

    Number 2: Rough Country’s Whip Lights And Whip Light Mounts For The Polaris RZR

    Safety is a high priority for most Polaris RZR owners. And to stay visible during night rides, a larger number of riders choose to install Rough Country’s LED whip lights. Like many whip light sets out there for the Polaris RZR, the 4-foot tall LED whips by Rough Country are waterproof, flexible, and dimmable as well. You can adjust the brightness level, but also the light pattern. If you’re feeling like some strobing effects, you can make it happen. Or if you’d rather have your whips fade, swirl, or flash in every color of the rainbow, the Rough Country whip lights allow for that as well.

    The quick-release bases that are included with Rough Country’s whip light kits are one of the contributing factors that distinguishes them from the competition. If you’re storing your UTV in the garage over winter, hauling it across state lines in an enclosed trailer, or riding wooded trails with low-hanging branches, you can quickly and effortlessly remove the whip lights. Then, when you’re off to the dunes or a nearby ORV park, you can throw them back on just as easily. On the other hand, you can also fix your whips to the ROPS of your bike with Rough Country's whip light roll cage mounting kit!

    Number 3: Rough Country’s Ultra-Wide Rear View Mirror For The Polaris RZR

    Whether a rear-view mirror is required by law so that you can legally ride your Razor on public roads, or if you do a lot of reversing and need something for better rearward visibility, Rough Country’s rear-view Polaris RZR mirror has been chosen by riders as one of the company’s most popular RZR products. The curvature of Rough Country’s rear-view mirror is such that you can see at an extremely wide angle without the image being distorted. This is important for accurately estimating distances, where concave mirrors make objects appear further than they actually are. 

    In addition to having a surface that reflects the real world in an accurate manner, the rear-view Polaris RZR mirror by Rough Country is also extremely robust, made with a reinforced face and a strong aluminum frame. Because of this, it doesn’t rattle, shake, or vibrate, nor does it bounce around after you set it to an angle that best suits your needs. 

    Ending Thoughts

    The point of branding is to give consumers reliable insight into a company before they pull the trigger on one of their products or services. And with nearly a half century of showing the world what they’re capable of, Rough Country has had ample time to prove themselves to even the harshest of critics. And although the list of accessories mentioned above are their best-selling products through Everything Polaris RZR, it should by no means detract from their other great Polaris RZR accessories. But you don’t have to trust us or even other riders. Try a Rough Country product on your rig and make the decision for yourself!

  • The Best Polaris RZR Accessories For Wintertime Riding

    Most Polaris RZR owners come out to play during the warmer spring, summer, and fall seasons. However winter riding is not only possible but both fun and practical as well. While some riders use the Polaris RZR to plow snow or access their cabin during winter, others simply enjoy getting out and tearing up the snow-packed trails. But regardless of whether you’re wanting to conduct work or organize recreational rides during winter, a few key accessories can go a long way in making your cold-weather rides more efficient and enjoyable. So here they are, the best Polaris RZR accessories for winter riding! 

    Accessories For Staying Warm In The Polaris RZR

    An obvious Polaris RZR accessory for wintertime riding is a heater unit. Not only will the Inferno, Firestorm, and other Polaris RZR heaters help to keep you nice and toasty, but with features like upward-facing defroster vents, they’ll also ensure that your visibility isn’t impeded if you’re using a full front windshield. Speaking of windshields, not all Polaris RZR windshields are made to handle the cold.

    For wintertime situations, half windshields are out of the question. To prevent your face from freezing, a full windshield is essential. In terms of insulation, glass Polaris RZR windshields are much better at trapping in heat than polycarbonate windshields. Plus, with a glass windshield, you can run hand-operated or electric windshield wipers to clear snow from your field of view without having to worry about scratches or scrapes. 

    In a similar vein, full Polaris RZR cab enclosures are also great for winter riding. If you’ve got the four-door RZR, your backseat passengers may not benefit as much from a front-only UTV heating unit. And even with your heater at full blast, without a complete cab enclosure system, the heat generated dissipates almost instantaneously — especially when temperatures dip below zero. 

    If you’ve got the money, accessories like heated seats or heated steering wheels can add an element of luxury to your ride. But even without such creature comforts, with a Polaris RZR heater, a full cab enclosure, and a cab enclosure seal kit to make your cabin airtight, you’ll be sitting comfortably in your rig during the coldest of winter days!

    Maintaining Traction On Ice And Snow

    For RZR owners that are serious about wintertime riding, Polaris RZR tracks are an option. In order to run snow tracks properly, however, gear reductions should be installed. But even without tracks, you can still get phenomenal traction on the ice and snow with Polaris RZR snow tires. 

    Extra-wide tires like the Wite Out set by Pro Armor are great for snow riding, but they’re a bit heavy (which can be hard on your driveline) and pretty expensive (which can be hard on your wallet). If you ride primarily in deep and fluffy snow, some extreme mud tires with deep and aggressive tread patterns will suit you well. And for hard-packed roads or icy trails, some Firestone Winterforce car tires or winter LT tires will work on the RZR, RZR 4, and RZR Turbo. If, however, you want to stick with your stock tires or if you can’t afford to upgrade tires, some chains can be used to give your rig more traction on ice and snow.

    Accessories For Riding Deep Snow

    Your best bet for deep snow riding is to install Polaris RZR tracks. However, things like high-clearance a-arms and lift kits will not only allow you to run bigger tires, but also prevent you from becoming high centered. Snorkel kits are also smart to have when riding powder. Snow can get into your air box, intakes, and other components pretty easily after a fresh dump. And when it turns into water after melting, snow can cause serious harm to your RZR’s internals. Accordingly, Polaris RZR snorkels are advised for those who rip hard in the deep stuff.

    Polaris RZR Ice Fishing Accessories

    A popular hobby of many wintertime RZR riders is ice fishing. To carry pop-up ice fishing huts, ice augers, and fishing poles, RZR storage racks or bed extenders are almost obligatory. Alternatively, a simple Polaris RZR hitch and ball setup can be used to pull ski-mounted trailers as well as decked-out ice fishing huts. 

    Snow Wheeling On Snowmobile Trails

    Many trail systems in the US are open during the winter, and snowmobile clubs / associations have worked for years to lobby for and develop wintertime trails. Many of these groomed trail systems, however, don’t permit ORVs like the Polaris RZR. Mixed-use winter trails exist, but when you take a wheeled vehicle on snowmobile-only trails, you’ll not only cause damage to the snowpack — creating deep ruts that are extremely hazardous to other drivers — but you could also be fined for doing so.

    Closing Thoughts

    Having a vehicle like the Polaris RZR that can be used year-round is great. You can use them to access remote areas for hunting and fishing, use them to plow snow, or use them for the pure enjoyment of riding. But before you go out on a mid-December ride, make sure your rig is equipped with all the wintertime accessories to make it both safe and enjoyable!

  • Getting To Know Rough Country And Their Offerings For The Polaris RZR Lineup

    As we endeavor to expand our ever-increasing lineup of reputable Polaris RZR accessory providers, we are proud to announce the addition of Rough Country to our roster. With a longstanding tradition of providing quality gear, upgrades, components, and kits for a wide variety of off-road vehicles, Rough Country’s RZR-specific accessories are among the best in the business. Their light bars are exceptionally powerful yet efficient, while their winch offerings for the Polaris RZR are top-of-the-line. Through competence, quality workmanship, and an unbridled sense of pride and enthusiasm, Rough Country is able to play in an entirely different league than many other side-by-side part providers. So let’s dig a little deeper and peel back the layers that make Rough Country the leading Powersports company that it is.

    Rough Country Light Setups For The Polaris RZR

    From lifestyle products to performance-grade accessories and upgrades, Rough Country’s offerings for the Polaris RZR, the RZR Turbo, and the RZR Pro truly run the gamut. And although many of their Polaris RZR lighting products will work equally well with other UTV brands as well as Jeeps, dune buggies, and pickup trucks, there is little doubt surrounding the efficacy of their off-road lighting solutions. 

    For those looking to run Polaris RZR light bars, few options exist that can match the Rough Country units. Their low-profile, single-row light bar for the Polaris RZR mounts exceptionally well below the vehicle's roof, and it matches the RZR headlights to the letter with its black backing. Compared to other high-end light bars, the ones by Rough Country are far more affordable. And when you juxtapose their light output with run-of-the-mill double-row Amazon special light bars, the difference is undeniable. 

    Rough Country offers light bars in multiple sizes, ranging from 8 inches to 50 inches. And like their light bars, the cube lights, headlights, and interior lights they offer are also superior in terms of aesthetics, performance, and build quality. If you want a front Polaris RZR grille with built-in LEDs, Rough Country makes them. Or if you’re after some Polaris RZR whip light mounts, Rough Country fabricates those as well.  

    You can use their fasteners, bolts, screws, and brackets to fix a 30” Slimline light bar onto your Ram 2,500, move it to the front of your F250 a year later, then stick it on your RZR 1000 a year after that. And with solid daylight running lamps, you’ll be looking good and ready to ride in both the daytime and the night! 

    Miscellaneous Rough Country Accessories For The Polaris RZR

    Although Rough Country is more well known for their lights and suspension lifts, they also provide many ancillary side-by-side accessories for the Polaris RZR. Some of the RZR accessories they offer --  like wheel spacers, receiver hitches, bed tie-down kits, and rearview mirrors -- can also be used on other UTVs. However their RZR-specific frame stiffener gussets for the 2014-2021 Polaris RZR 1000 XP, their molded roofs for the 2015-2021 RZR 900 / 1000, and their full / half polycarbonate windshields for the RZR 900, 1000 S, and RZR Turbo are exclusive to the Polaris RZR line of sport side-by-sides. 

    For storage, they have custom-fit Polaris RZR cargo boxes. And for wintertime riding, they’ve got hidden fan heaters that can produce up to 16,000 BTUs. Be it stiffer springs, stronger winches, or anything in between, when you buy from a company like Rough Country, you know that no corners were cut and nothing was overlooked.  

    Final Thoughts

    By leveraging their expertise in off-road vehicles across the board, Rough Country has been able to do for the Polaris RZR what other companies haven’t. They can draw from a deep knowledge base, convert this know-how into actionable manufacturing techniques, and then use these proprietary fabrication methods to deliver exceptional parts, products, and accessories for the Polaris RZR lineup. And for these reasons as well as many more, we are thrilled to be among the select group of retailers that help to bring Rough Country products to the world!

  • Which Polaris RZR Accessories are best for Rocky Trails?

    The Polaris RZR was built with the adrenaline-seeking enthusiast in mind, and while that often speaks to the need for speed, the riders looking to reach new heights weren’t forgotten in the process. As enthusiasts are aware, steep rides and bumpy trails are a cakewalk for the Polaris RZR. However, despite the already-capable machine, there are plenty of parts and accessories that can aid riders while embarking on a heart-pumping climb up a trail.

    Polaris RZR 900/ XP 1000/ XP Turbo Front Suspension Frame Support by SuperATV

    You can’t climb a mountain without the right support, nor can you tackle those extra-steep trails. The Turbo Front Suspension Frame Support by SuperATV will help your RZR to conquer the toughest climbs every time. Constructed from durable 4.5mm thick carbon steel, this frame is designed to get you to your destination without fail every time. 

    Polaris RZR Front Shock Guards by Assault Industries

    Your Polaris RZR wasn’t cheap, so why not spend a little more to protect your investment? These front shock guards are designed exactly in the way the name implies: to protect your front shock absorber shafts. Whether it be from flying debris on the trail or other potentially harmful objects, the shock guards can save you time and money by protecting your investment from premature shock failure. Constructed from 6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum, the shock guards are easy to install and are wildly efficient in keeping your rig protected from potential harm. 

    Polaris RZR 900/1000 Rear Cage Support by SuperATV

    You never know what can happen out on the trails, so it’s best to be prepared for anything, right? Uneven terrain and bumpy trails pose a threat to even the most experienced riders. Adding the Rear Cage Support ensures that, in the event of a rollover, you and your passengers will be protected. Built using 1-1/2-inch steel tubing, this rugged steel cage provides the extra support and protection needed to avoid injury. Slip-resistant clamps that connect your rear bumper to the roll cage adds that extra protection that could mean the difference between sustaining an injury or walking away unscathed. 

    Polaris RZR 4500 lb. Black Ops Synthetic Rope Winch by SuperATV

    You never know when you might get yourself into a bind, but being able to get yourself out of it is essential on the trails. This winch offers a 12 volt, 1.3hp motor to give power and stamina, along with 50 feet of synthetic rope that will withstand anything thrown its way. Other features include a wireless remote control for an easier and wider range of movement; brakes to hold on inclines; a weather-proof seal to protect against the elements; and an efficient electrical system for sustained battery life. With all these benefits, this winch should be on your must-have list of accessories necessary to hit those rocky trails. 

    Polaris RZR Carnivore 8-ply Radial Tire- 14 and 15 Inch by Maxxis

    The perfect tires will get you out of any bind, and that’s exactly what the Carnivore 8-ply Radial Tire is for. Designed to lift you out of any “rocky” situation, these offroad tires are designed with enough traction to conquer even the most extreme terrain. This tire was constructed specifically to conquer rocky terrain, with 8 ply rated radial construction, which offers a durable resistance to punctures that might be sustained on the trails. 

    Conquering that steep mountain trail can be daunting, but you won’t have to worry so long as you outfit your rig with the proper materials. Take the challenge head-on, and let Everything Polaris RZR help along the way. We have a wide selection of parts and accessories that will help you reach new heights.

  • Breaking: New Info On The 2021 Polaris RZR Lineup

    Speculators be damned! The 2021 Polaris RZR model release has dropped, and all the information about the newest lineup of RZR vehicles is now available. Upon first glance, the changes and updates may appear to be marginal. And although the basic platform remains consistent with what we saw in previous years, Polaris did make a few changes to their 2021 RZR lineup. So what’s new exactly? Let’s find out.

    Aesthetic Changes To The 2021 Polaris RZR Lineup

    When perusing through the 2021 editions of the Polaris RZR XP, the RZR Pro, and the RZR 4, the first thing you’ll probably notice is the new color schemes. In addition to some trim enhancements, Polaris also introduced colors like Sport Performance Red, Premium Onyx Black, and Ultimate Matte Titanium Metallic. The 2021 RZR XP 1000 Trails and Rocks edition comes in only one color, which is perfect for those that suffer from choice anxiety. And with the Lifted Lime color on the 2021 Polaris RZR Turbo S, one can’t help but to think that the engineers heard “highlighter” instead of “High Lifter”. But aside from the decals and color changes, Polaris did make some functional improvements to their 2021 RZR fleet.

    What Changes Were Made To The 2021 Polaris RZR?

    For the taller guys out there struggling with their harnesses on the RZR 4-seater Turbo, the harness bar on the 2021 version is higher up above the seat. It is unclear at this point whether they’re still using Subzero harnesses, or if they switched over to Click 6 harnesses, but what is clearly evident based on the released photos is that the harness bar is positioned higher. 

    Aside from changing the name “Base” to “Sport” and getting rid of the wider 72” RZR Pro models, Polaris decided to put the Pro XP clutches in the regular 2021 XP Turbo and Turbo S editions. The tender springs on the 2021 Polaris RZR Pro XP were also updated, giving riders improved suspension and a plusher ride compared to the older spring versions.    

    Moving on to interior upgrades, Ride Command and Rockford Audio systems are now standard in the 2021 RZR Pro XP Premium, and changes were made to the new factory heating units as well. Speaking of new factory accessories, improved aluminum doors, upper doors, and rear light bars are also optional additions one can request on their 2021 RZR.     

    From the images released by Polaris, one can make some conjectures about the 2021 Polaris RZRs. Aside from different colors on the seats, the basic interior of the 2021 RZR appears to be the same as previous years. And although the headers might suggest that changes were made to the engine, this appears not to be the case. What we do know, however, is that lighter stock wheels are going to be included, rear shock guards are going to be added, and a new air intake material is going to be used to improve cooling. 

    Closing Thoughts On The 2021 Polaris RZR

    For some, the alterations made to the 2021 Polaris RZR lineup may be insufficient to make them to upgrade. After all, aftermarket clutches are available for better shifting, aftermarket wheels are easy to come by for less unsprung weight, and aftermarket wraps can be installed for exterior aesthetics. While bold new graphics and a trickle charging port might entice a few RZR owners to update, the lack of rebates could push others to older models of the RZR. At the end of the day, the only opinion that matters is your own. And if you’ve got the funds to pop on a 2021 Polaris RZR, don’t be afraid to send it. Whatever you decide, however, just remember that when in doubt, throttle it out! 

  • The Flip Side of Fun: Let’s Talk Polaris RZR Maintenance

    It’s a pleasant delusion we all love to entertain when we’re bouncing along the trail or skating across the dunes – I don’t need to take her into the garage, she’s running just fine! 

    Well, if you wait until something falls off on your Polaris RZR before you attempt any maintenance, then we’ve got a problem. Yes, we’d all rather be out there in the sun than in the garage tinkering, but with the right practices and gear by your side, you can make Polaris RZR maintenance a virtually painless task. We’ll break down our top maintenance tips by gear type. Here we go!

    Fluids – It may sound like Polaris RZR maintenance 101, but regular oil changes are absolutely essential when it comes to preventing dips in performance and premature wear. That’s why we always keep our Polaris RZR Oil Change Kit by Kolpin in stock. The same goes for all other fluids relevant to regular operation of your vehicle, of course, including coolant. If you’re noticing some gel-like material forming in your coolant, then you’re due to change it out. 

    Bearings and Joints – Keep your bearings and joints well lubricated, and they will repay you tenfold with an extended life of smooth performance. The list of “usual suspects” in terms of items in this department that wear the fastest include the joints themselves, bearings, and bushings. Inspecting this hardware on a regular basis is sure to pay off in performance.

    Tires – A kick here and an eyeballing there may suffice for a regular automobile, but the high demands placed on the Polaris RZR require more active maintenance when it comes to tires. In other words, check the air pressure regularly. The earlier you can catch a problem with your tires or CV boots, the cheaper it will be to fix. Looking for a tire that will look tough and perform even tougher? Then we’ve got a seriously studly set for you by Stiand Maxxis.  

    Filters – Never has there been a greater contrast between Polaris RZR maintenance and regular vehicle maintenance than in the case of the air filter. As a fact of life, your UTV filter will get much dirtier, much faster than your conventional vehicle. This means more frequent checking to avoid performance drops. High-quality hardware never hurts in this department, either. Flimsy and conventional filters simply won’t do if you’re on the dunes, which is why we highly recommend this Polaris RZR 1000 Air Filter by Quad Logic. 

    Brakes – It’s obviously difficult to overstate the importance of properly functioning brakes, in Polaris RZR maintenance and all other vehicles. Set some time aside to inspect how thick that pad is, and don’t forget to inspect the lines and fluid as well. Even if you rode recently, it will just take a second or two to do a quick brake check before you start really pushing the pedal down.

    The more frequently you take these steps, the less total time you will spend dealing with Polaris RZR maintenance issues. It sounds like a paradox at first, but think about it. What takes longer to deal with: a small repair or a full replacement?  

  • How to Keep your Polaris RZR Rust-free

    If you live in an area of the country that experiences moist or wet conditions, chances are you’re already aware of what causes rust on your vehicles, and how you can prevent it from happening. If not, you’ll want to pay attention and read through this article in its entirety. Doing so could save your unit from extensive damage while saving you thousands in repair costs.

    Rust not only threatens to ruin the aesthetic of your RZR; over time, it may compromise the structural integrity of your frame and cause irreparable damage. It can also impact the functionality of important components on your vehicle, such as your brakes, which could make your unit dangerous to operate.

    Of course, no one wants this to happen to their unit, right? So how can you prevent it?

    There are dozens of best practices you can follow to prevent rust from damaging your Polaris RZR. Below are just a few that can help you protect your UTV easily and efficiently. 

    Store your unit away from moisture

    This is perhaps the best thing any UTV owner can do to protect their investment. Storing your Polaris RZR in a dry, enclosed area will prevent it from succumbing to the damage that moisture can bring. A garage or shed are perfect options. Anything that will protect your unit from the elements is helpful in preventing rust formation.

    Clean your unit when riding near salt

    Those of you in the colder states already know this: salt is damaging. You should try to clean your unit immediately following your rides, but that is a must if you ride anywhere with salt on the roads. 

    Depending where you live and ride, you may pick up moisture or salt from the roads that could be damaging to your unit if left alone for too long. So long as the temperatures are not too low or below freezing, your best bet is to clean thoroughly with a hot water pressure washer. Be sure to get the undercarriage as well; washing thoroughly will help wash away all traces of salt to avoid corrosion.

    Remove dirt and mud to avoid buildup

    Cleaning mud and dirt frequently to avoid buildup is imperative in preventing rust on your Polaris RZR. If left unattended for too long, the moisture in the debris will corrode and create potential damage on your unit or, at the very least, make it unsightly.

    The best way to prevent this from happening is to clean your unit as soon as possible. Not only will this prevent rust, but it will also make the cleaning process quicker and easier, especially if you spray it down while the debris is still fresh and wet. There’s nothing more arduous than scraping dried mud off the underbelly of a UTV, right? For that reason, it’s best to get it done sooner rather than later.

    Use skid plates to protect the underside of your Polaris RZR

    That’s right, there’s an accessory that is built specifically to protect the underbelly of your UTV. Skid plates are often mounted to prevent the frame and undercarriage from being damaged in rocky conditions, which can also act as a shield from scratches or damage that may expose parts of your unit to the elements. Mounting skid plates has the potential to prevent that damage from occurring, thus never giving your unit the chance to form rust. 

    These are dozens of ways to practice rust prevention. A quick Google search will give you plenty of options, and at least one is bound to be an option for you. 

    If nothing else, simply try to store your vehicle in a dry and protected spot and keep it clean after every ride. Doing so will prevent opportunities for rust to take hold, thus ensuring that your ride will last you for years to come. 

  • What Is Wheel Offset and Why Should You Care?

    In many cases, that alien string of letters and numbers printed on the label of whatever you’re buying is for manufacturer use only, so many of us tend to ignore this “fine print.” When you’re in the market for a new set of Polaris RZR wheels, however, these numbers couldn’t be more relevant to your proper use of the product. 

    The wheel offset in particular is an often misunderstood dimension, so there’s no shame in asking for a little clarification if you don’t know what exactly wheel offset is. The same goes for bolt patterns. 

    Typically, when researching wheel sizing, you will see a figure similar to this:

    14x7 4/156 – (4+3)

    This is the exact sizing information for our Polaris RZR Hd6 14” Wheels, which come with STI’s high quality Roctane tires as well. In this snippet of numbers is included the size, offset, and bolt pattern. This guide will fully break down each of the three data points so you can make an informed purchasing decision.

    Easiest First: Size

    The “14 x 7” in our sample used above is the simplest to understand, so we’ll start there. This figure describes the overall dimensions of the wheel. The first number relates to diameter, and the second describes width, so these Polaris RZR wheels are fourteen inches around and seven inches wide—piece of cake. 

    Wheel Offset

    The (4+3) figure above is referencing this particular wheel’s offset level. Offset in this case is a measure of how much the wheel sticks out horizontally, either widening your stance or keeping it narrow. Specifically, offset is expressed as the relationship between the hub mounting location and the center line of the wheel. If the hub is mounted 4” away from the inner side and 3” away from the street side of the wheel, then you have a (4+3) offset, which will result in the wheel being tucked in slightly because the majority of the wheel’s width is on the inner side. 

    This may sound like a petty distinction at first, but it bears great importance on the overall ride quality and appearance of your Polaris RZR. It’s also important to note that your offset figures will always equal the total width of your wheel, and that when the numbers are equal, which is to say the hub is perfectly central, then there is no offset. 

    So, how exactly does this influence performance, you might be asking? Consider the following:

    • In the case of a (4+3) offset and especially in more dramatically tucked in offsets, like a 5 or 6 + 3, you gain the advantage of improved clearance all around your vehicle so you can squeak your Polaris RZR through/by tighter spots.
    • In the opposite case, where the first number is smaller than the second, you will sacrifice this improved clearance for improved stability, thanks to the wider stance. 
    • This kind of offset also enables you to run with larger tires if you so choose.
    • If you transition from your Polaris RZR factory wheels, which are usually offset, to a non-offset wheel, you will notice a difference in ride quality and clearance. Many assume that factory wheels are not offset, but this is not the case here.

    Some brands like to measure using just a single metric that describes exactly how far out or in the tire is set. This is usually expressed in millimeters, and will use negative numbers for when the first number is smaller (so the wheel sticks out), and positive numbers in the opposite case. So, our example above is a positive offset of a certain amount of millimeters – it would then be expressed as “+10mm” or “+15mm,” etc., meaning that’s how far beyond the center line that the tire is tucked in. Of course, no offset would simply be expressed as zero.  

    Whether you’re springing for a new set of tires or buying a new Polaris RZR altogether, it’s always helpful to know what kind of offset and size you’re running. You can determine what these dimensions are from your dealer, owner’s manual, or online. 

    Bolt Patterns

    That final figure, the 4/156 number, describes the bolt pattern of your wheel. The first number simply describes how many bolts there are, and the second number describes the distance between a pre-set measurement in millimeters. In our case, then, we’re looking at a 4-lug setup where the distance between two of the holes (located diagonally from each other) is 156mm. 

    Bringing It All Together

    To sum up, the figure 14x7 4/156 – (4+3) is a standardized way of expressing tire size (diameter x width), bolt pattern (number of lugs/space between pre-determined points) and offset (hub distance from inner tire surface + hub distance from street side of tire). Understanding these numbers will help you to ensure proper fitment, accommodate larger tires, improve clearance, service your tires with less hassle, and make more precise upgrade decisions.
