PRP Heated 50/50 Bench RZR S Seat Review....

Well I thought I would give a review on the PRP Heated 50/50 Bench seat for the rzr-S since I could not find one anywhere before I bought. This might help others who are looking for a bench seat as well.

Before I start I just want to say that I am in no way associated with PRP or any other company that builds or sells seats. Also any issues that I have or had I did not bring up with the vendor because it is not really a big deal to me.

first off I bought the Bench seat because my wife and I have a 4 yr old son that loves to ride with us. A rzr4 just isnt for me for the time being.

anyway I talked to PRP and bought a sweet seat that is heated and also matches my 2012 rzr-sle Orange Madness perfectly.

Well to start it off the customer service from PRP is easily one of the best I have dealt with from any and all vendors I have bought from in the past.

So when the seats first arrived they were awesome. Quality was second to none. The only complaint that I have is that some of the seams dont match up perfect they are a bit off from seat to seat (where the bench part lines up) but this is not really a big deal and doesnt effect the seat in anyway just the looks.

I then removed the stock seat mounts and put them on the PRP seats. they fit perfectly and there was no need to modify anything. After the mounts were installed I installed the seats in the rzr just to get the feel of them. Well im not a big guy but I am average. I weigh 215-220 and im about 6' tall well I noticed that the seats raise you about 2-4" and move you forward about 2-3" (and this is with the seat pushed as far back as it will go on the mount, I couldnt go all the way back tho or I couldnt get my fingers through the hole to remove the seat). Im not sure if there is adjustments that can be done but I dont think so. This is not a huge deal for me but I do notice it hard to get in and out of the rzr a little more. For those people who chopped their roof this could be an issue if you wear a helmet and for those taller guys also an issue cause you might hit your knees on the dash. As for sitting in the seat WOW what an amazingly comfortable seat. It hugs me perfect, I love it.

The Bench seat is also a 50/50 bench seat which is awesome. The seats are a bit heavier than a stock seat so without the 50/50 split wow this would be ackward to remove. If any of you guys or gals are like me. My wife and I argue anytime we help each other. Either removing a seat or her helping me back to truck up to hook up a trailer. Hahhaa. Thank god for review camera on my tailgate.

Now installing the harnesses. The harness install is easy as 1-2-3. the only pain in the arse would be to remove the seat after the harness install. I can see that being a huge pain. But I can see this with all seats, just the nature of the beast.

Now the heated seat install and function. The install at first I was thinking was going to be a HUGE pain. But it was way easier than I thought (I am mechanically inclined. Easy tho if not) I just ran the wires on either side of the rzr and then under the dash and tied the wires into an accessory plug hanging and attached to the 12V plug wires. Really simple. and the heated seats are AWESOME. My wife loves them. It was -10 today well riding and I actually had to turn my seat off cause I was getting to hot. I rode for a good 100km and had no issues with the battery going low. I was running my svworks stereo and heated seats but my lights were turned off. (shouldnt have an issue with lights on I just had them off) So for those guys who ride in the winter with your wives. Well how many times have you heard the cry about a cold arse. Well no more crying...

Now comfort in the seats with my wife and kid. My son isnt a big kid for his age he is only about 35-40 lbs, my wife is 5'7 and about 120-130. but it was a tight fit for us. although we did have all our winter riding gear on which makes us WAY bigger. My drive ability was down because I couldn't steer to the right very good cause my arm had to be up due to my son being right next to me. Not a huge deal for me but some others maybe. and my son is only 4 so shouldnt be riding that hard anyway. He was also of course wearing a helmet.

Well thats pretty much it for the review, if anyone has any questions please send me a pm or reply to this thread. I just thought I would give all of you looking for a bench seat a review of the one I bought. I have no experience with any other seat so I cant help others who want to go with a different seat.

All I can say is that the seat I picked (PRP) even tho there was a few minor things for me it is still an amazing seat. If I had to do it all over again I would go with PRP again. and the heated seat function is a MUST if you do winter riding.

so out of 10 here is my review..

Customer Service = 10/10
quality = 9/10
finish = 7/10
comfort = 9/10
installation = 10/10
Fit = 8/10
Heated element = 10/10
Ride Comfort = 10/10

hope I didnt miss anything. Here are some attached pics. As you can see my son loved it. everytime we were driving he fell asleep in the first 5 mins.

Thanks

Stiff

I Updated my review after the 50/50 bench was mentioned. That's why it says it now.

As for the weight I'm not sure how much more they weigh than stock seats. I never did weigh them. It's not alot. But it is more. There is alot more to the seat tho then the stock seats. So they should weigh more.

As for price you will have to contact PRP. Mine was a bit more cause of the heated part. And I live in Canada. So shipping was more than what US would be.

I think tho without heate and without shipping they are around 670 or something like that.

Re: PRP Heated Bench RZR S Seat Review....

Im interested in these seats, I didnt know they came heated, and if Im not mistaken when I looked at the website it was $150 more for the heated option. Not sure if its back and bottom though. Either way I think Ill go the heated option as well, considering we still havent gotten any snow here in PA. it still gets chilly.

$150 sounds about right. It is well worth it. The seats are heated butt and back. And comes with nice switches as you can see the pic above. Only on/off tho no low and high. You might be able to upgrade tho.

You will love the seats. Actually its funny. My wife said she was actually falling asleep while riding. And we were riding on a lake with alot of small drifts. So kind of rough.

Haha.

Re: PRP Heated Bench RZR S Seat Review....

One hand washes the other! Your review helped me seal the deal on this specific seat, if it werent for you I wouldnt have known they was a heated option, thought that was only for high end cars and trucks! looks like your kid took the brunt of heated seats as well lol! out like a light!
