How Many Miles?

I've always wondered how many miles the RZR engines will go for before they need to be rebuilt. Lets get this going, so please list the kind of riding you do, the modifications you have done, the size of tires you have and how many miles you have so far.

This should be interesting...

Re: How Many Miles?

Top end @ 1000 miles. Often in can't see/can't breathe dust clouds when riding with others.

YMMV

Have about 2,000 miles on my machine. Everything from 11,000 foot mountains to major dust. The only mod I have on the engine is a K&N filter, and I clean the filter sock before almost every ride. The machine burns a bit of oil (about a pint every 1,000 miles), but that is it.

Re: How Many Miles?

I'm close to 1000 miles and doesn't use a drop of oil. I run it pretty hard too. But, I put a D&L airbox on it within about a week of owning it. Dunno if it make a difference or not.

Re: How Many Miles?

Cool guys, keep em coming. The point to all of this is to help people understand when these things are at the end of thier service life. There are more and more used RZRs on the market and people just don't know what to consider high miles.

Re: How Many Miles?

5000k on oem engine, UMP air cleaner the best, installed turbo pistons at 3500K all desert driving and dunes, removed engine at 5102K replaced with the 902 Turbo now close to 6500k, oh by the way we changed oil about every 20-30 Hrs mobile1 and lucas racing oil.
pulled the oem engine apart and it was spotless, we also used an oil cooler, larger radiator installed about 3000k, it makes a big difference when you keep the oil clean and the air intake clean. Considering this is the most demanding terrain with silt lake beds and major dust I think this proves that keeping the air intake and oil clean it will last a long time.

Re: How Many Miles?

726 miles and 84 hours. 26" swamp lites. UMP air box with rubber cap for going deep and snorkeled to the roof with an outerwares over the snorkel intake. I get almost zero dust in the airbox and ride in alot of sugar sand and dusty conditions. Also go deep alot down here in FL. Runs as good as the day I got it but uses about an ounce or 2 of oil every 230 miles or so.

Re: How Many Miles?

I only got 269miles 23hrs, but I got a buddy who had a 2008 Rzr he sold at about 2700 miles and he only sold it because he felt it was high miles. It always ran perfect and never burned an ounce of oil. He was religious on the oil changes wiht the OEM PS4 and had a UMP intake, the big one. That was last Jan he sold it and I'm sure its still running perfect. Great engines.

Re: How Many Miles?

This thread has some good posts but its 2009. Still though, I see allot of guys with over 3000 miles in this post and nothing major has failed that the driver didn't cause himself.

Talking Re: How Many Miles?

1300 miles with no issues. I noticed it did use a couple of ozs of oil but my air filter was filthy so I think that might be the culprit. Hopefully this thing will be like my mighty Cummins and I can expect 1 million miles out of it....

'09 RZR...lots of goodies!!!
'01 Dodge CTD...not stock
