Brakes

When it boils down to it, better stopping brake pads -- like those made from brass -- tend to wear really fast. Brake pads that don’t stop the best tend to last a lot longer. So with your Polaris RZR braking, it’s all about your personal preference. How long your brake pads will also depend on how you ride. If you’re running flat, wide open trails, your RZR brake pads will last longer. Mountains, sand, and mud, on the other hand, are much harder on your brake pads, regardless of if they’re brass or a composite of several different materials like traditional Polaris RZR pads. Sand and mud pack the vent holes, acting like a grinder, and wet sand is particularly brutal on brakes. For this reason, many riders avoid mud like the plague? Not only because it tears rigs up, but also because they would rather do 100-150 miles in a day and see lots of countryside rather than compete for bragging rights. After all, when you intentionally submerge your machine up to the seat backs, you're probably not worried about the brakes.

But even if you don't seek out mud, steep and hilly riding can rapidly degrade brake pads as well. If you're spending a bunch on brake pads, your money may be put to better use with an aftermarket clutch that allows for engine braking -- especially if you have an RZR S. Polaris RZR S's have no inherent engine braking. You back off the gas and they will just coast. This can be fixed in many cases with clutch tuning, but you can also enhance your engine braking with an aftermarket clutch kit. Even if your stock clutch has pretty good engine braking, installing a clutch system like those by Duraclutch can drastically help in many ways, including engine braking. And this is a particularly viable option for RZR S owners, that is unless you run a lot of deep mud.


So depending on what you ride and what you're willing to spend, OEM brake pads might be just fine for your riding applications. Plus, many riders have complained about brass brake pads being too noisy, too pricey, and not the best option for an RZR with portals. If you're burning through brake pads like a mad man, you might want to take your sliders apart and grease your pins to make sure they aren't sticking; and running a solid rotor might prove beneficial as well. If you're not interested in going slow and view the left pedal as optional, your brake pads are probably pretty fresh. If you use your brakes, however, you'll likely need to replace the pads at some point. So give us a holler and let us know how you ride so we can hook you up with the best RZR brake pads for your needs!
