2013 RZR800 new springs

Hey guys. What can you tell me about the dual rate springs on the new 2013 RZR 800 LE trail edition. Blows me away on how on the polaris website you can barely find any basic info on this quad. Even HP, I know it should be around 55HP but try and find that on the website. Thanks guys.

Re: 2013 RZR800 new springs

Historically the stock RZR springs have been junk.

However in recent years they have supposely gotten better (my 2010 S were not that good, the 2013 XP i just bought, verdict still out).

I would plan on replacing them within the first 1000miles. usually run about $500 for new ones.

Just go ahead and upgrade the shocks before you ride it.

Re: 2013 RZR800 new springs

No product is ever perfect for every person and situation. At some point you may need or want to replace these springs. They may sag or you may want a firmer ride. But at some point you will also replace tires, air filters, oil, oil filters, spark plugs, bushings and brake pads. That doesn't make all these parts junk. They get used and they wear out. Any manufacturer has to balance all these issues with cost. Want the perfect RZR? Sure, I can build you one for $ 50,000!!!!

Enjoy your machine, and when a part wears out, replace it!

Re: 2013 RZR800 new springs

Polaris even puts junk springs on the S LE model - sag within a few hundred miles. Each time you take it out, check ground clearance. I think you'll be shocked at how fast your 10" drops down to 7 or 8. Next option may be spring or a LTR/YZ upgrade, but I can tell you for sure within a few hundred miles you'll be asking yourself why your getting beat around on the bumps. Next problem is how far to take the 50" suspension vs. just adding S components, including aftermarket shocks and a good spring combination.

These things are fun as helz, but they are like Jeeps in that you never know when to stop...
