If there is one aspect of safety that you should not go riding without having it be in optimum condition, it is the brakes on your RS1. If you have worn down your brakes and it is time to change them or you are simply looking at an alternative to your stock brakes / brake pads, then you will find no better quality available than what is carried here. With everything from RS1 brake pads, calipers, and disc brakes to aftermarket accessories such as hand brakes, the selection of Polaris RS1 brakes that you'll find here is unrivaled. Of course brake pads should be replaced periodically, and you might want to drill and tap the ends of the posts and install a 1/4-28 bolt and washer to keep the pads on. If you do this as well as loosen the set screw so the caliper floats more freely, you'll avoid the rubbing and scraping that is common with RS1 brake pads -- especially in the rear.
Steering quickeners are also neat accessories that make a huge difference when speeding round tight corners. With a steering brake installed on the front brakes -- because it's pretty much worthless to install one on the rear brakes -- you can whip your machine around bends or flick it and set up a corner way smoother. Hand brakes are also good for racers, and the hydraulic rear hand brake made for the standard RZR works wonders in the RS1. If you install it yourself, you will have to tie into the clines going to the rear brakes, and probably have a couple of check valves. When you hit the pedal, the brakes work as stock. When you use the handle, it’ll lock up just the rears; perfect for drifting. Even if you're not a racer per se, these hand brakes are great to whip it around corners faster, or to start a drift for maximum acceleration. Whether you're looking for stock or aftermarket RS1 brake pads like the EBC sintered pads, brake calipers, or any other aftermarket braking accessory for the Polaris RS1, if you're looking for unrivaled stopping power, look no further than Everything Polaris RZR!
