Polaris Kick Out Rock Sliders

I have a 2016 RZR 900 S with Polaris Kick Out Rock Sliders. Love the look but am having some problems with them. The mounting of the things suck! There is too much torque on them when you hit something. I ride Maine trails a lot. Today in fact. The trails there have lots of rocky sections. At "creepy crawl" speed even, when you come down on a rock after picking your best line, you slam the sliders and it pulls on the anchor bolts. Then there's a problem tightening again because You could possibly pull the bolt through the frame. I'm MORTIFIED of this happening and not being able to run them anymore! I'm tempted to take them of but then the body is unprotected and or you won't be able to attach any others. Have others encountered this? And if so, what have you done about it? I hate to take them of as I said, I love the look and I hate to spend more money running a different set! These things are out of control the spending to keep them accessorized!

On my first rzr I drilled the frame out large enough to insert a 1/2" pipe through the frame and welded both sides to keep the frame strength then ran a bolt all the way through the frame in that pipe with a nut on backside. The bolt cant collapse the frame rail that way. If you decide to buy more check out the houser racing ones. They have a much better mounting application and in my opinion look and function much better.

That's a little above my skill level. Did you have to remove plastics to weld? It sounds like that would be pretty bullet proof though! I'll check out the Houser Racing ones if I can find them. Thanks.

Re: Polaris Kick Out Rock Sliders

Yes side plastics had to be removed and takes a little time to do so. I hate those polaris fasteners tho. Everything on my rzr that was held on with things pulled out eventually.

Yeah. Poor engineering for sure! Friends have the sliders that are close to body. They never have any problems. But theirs are 50" mine's 60". And this style slider, when hit, there's a lot of leverage against the mounts. Maine has some tight ass trails! Between rocks, trees etc. Bridges are 60" or less too. Believe most areas are 60" or less are allowed. Their trails are barely leaving the era of 3 wheelers.

Usa Re: Polaris Kick Out Rock Sliders

Axiom side by side has a custom machined Stainless Steel pin that is welded to the Tree Kickers, and all you do is drill a 3/8'' hole through the frame and attach the bolt on the other side of the frame and you are done. These Tree Kickers will not come off. They also go to the front of the back tire so a tree or stump will not get caught in front of the tire. I had another Brand on mine and did not like how they were mounted and did not like how they did not go all the way back to the rear tire. I now have the Axiom tree kickers on mine and love them. They also protect your doors from banging into trees. www.axiomsidebyside.com

Thanks for the reply. I think I'm going to tough it out at this point. The spending on these things is out of control. I'm putting on some "Mud Buster" fender flares right now. I had to order some more fender darts. (rivets) Kit comes with screws and socket head nuts/bolts/washers. But If the fenders stand a chance, it's rivets for mine. Finished one side. Maybe I can bolt the existing sliders somehow. Again, thanks for the reply!
