Whether you’re at home or on the trail, having a wide selection of replacement parts for your Polaris RZR is never a bad idea. Especially if you’re riding alone far from civilization, bringing the right replacement parts can literally be a lifesaver. One of the most common and frequent parts to go out on the Polaris RZR is the drive belt. And while you might be tempted to pick up a Gates or similar belt at your local Napa or O’Rileys, resist the urge. They may perform seemingly well on the 800 RZR, but 1000 is a completely different animal. First of all, the belts you find at auto parts stores don’t pull as good as OEM belts. Second of all, they are far weaker. So don’t be surprised if it grenades on your first or second ride. If you don’t want to go the OEM route, there are several options that won’t break the bank or break after one use. Hunterworks, for instance, is much stronger and thicker than OEM RZR belts. Plus, they come with a one-year one-time replacement warranty, so even if it does explode, you can get a new one free of charge.
Having spare belts and other extra parts around the house is smart for quick turnaround times if and when you damage a part on your RZR. But carrying spare parts with you on the trail is even smarter -- especially if you’re riding solo in places like Colorado, South Dakota, or Wyoming, where it’s not uncommon to be out over 100 miles away from camp without any sign of people. Packing some extra axle ball joints, a spare belt, tire plugs, a spare radiator cap, some fuses, wire, and tools to remove and replace parts is a good place to start. But the further out you go, the more you may want to consider packing. An air compressor and plugs, a quart of oil, tow straps, a spare tie rod, spare bolts, cotter pins, and spare relays for the fuel pump, EPS, lights, etc can bring added peace of mind when you’re 100 miles from camp, the sun is going down, and the temps start to drop below freezing. The list can be a mile long, but the aforementioned spare parts should be compulsory if you’re not riding in a group. Depending on the length and duration of your ride, however, some of these spare RZR parts may not be necessary. But as the saying goes, proper planning prevents poor performance.
