If you don’t want to trailer your Polaris RZR RS1 to the base of the foothills or you just want to use it for grocery runs, depending on which state you live in, it may be possible to make your RS1 street legal. In places like Texas or Michigan, you are not allowed to drive your RS1 on city roads. In states like Arizona and South Dakota, on the other hand, it is possible to make your RS1 street legal. South Dakota is particularly easy, and even out-of-state residents can register their side-by-sides to become street legal in the state. But in order to become licensed, you’re going to have to make a few additions to your machine. Specifically, mirrors, horns, and turn signals are almost always required, regardless of the state. But even if you’re not looking to get street legalized, RS1 turn signal kits can still prove beneficial in a variety of ways. When driving in crowded UTV parks or in convoys with your buddies, indicating your intentions to turn can reduce accidents and keep all parties safe. But which RS1 turn signal kit should you choose?
There are many turn signals and street legal kits that can work on the Polaris RS1. A popular one is SuperATV’s Polaris RZR RS1 Toggle Plug-&-Play Turn Signal Kit. This kit is simple to install, coming preassembled and color coded. And unlike other kits, SuperATV’s signal kit is specifically designed for the RS1, so everything is fitted and ready to go, no wire splicing, measuring, or retrofitting required. A company called Ryco also makes a street legal kit for the Polaris RS1, which integrates nicely with the RS1 and comes with a built-in horn and hazard lights. This kit even comes with an illuminated license plate mount, which is required for highway riding in a number of states in the US. So if you’re looking to cruise the streets or communicate non-verbally with other riders on the trail, a turn signal kit for the RS1 is the way to go -- even if it wasn’t required by law.
