Heat Shields under the Rear Beds? They are needed!
I harp allot on here about Heat Shields and the shortcomings of Polaris and melting beds, melting passenger backs, fenders etc etc. Well my neighbor went riding this past weekend and one of the riders had gotten a New Rzr, put on some kind of aftermarket Exhaust, had a 2 1/2 gallon Fuel Can behind the Passenger and this is the result. I have not found out what type of Exhaust he had put on it, but will post when I find out. Guys, we need to tell others that this is a problem. I have seen so many melted beds, fenders and back behind the passenger seat that is ridiculous. Simple to put a full Aluminum Heat Shield under the Bed and be Safe. This is a photo of the rig well after the main Fire. They stated that there were flames 18 feet in the Air, and after it ignited the Drive and Passenger had just seconds to get out of it. They had seat belts on and there were doors. They say if one of them had stumbled just a bit, they would have been hurt bad. My Neighbor had seen the fire start and ran his ATV up beside them and started hollering and in just seconds it was fully engulfed. Lesson here is to put a Heat Shield on and move them Fuel Cans to behind the Drivers Side.
