Canada 570 enough for us??

Hey there,

Noob here....
We rented a RZR 800 down in the Oregon Dunes last weekend and loved it....even my dear wife was smiling. Never felt for a lack of power while using it.
Anyway, I've found a 570 locally and wonder if it will be enough machine to haul us around in.....combined weight of 450lbs.
I'm guessing the 570 designation refers to engine size? Again, noob here

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Mike

Mike, the 570 is a very capable machine. If you plan to trail ride, and not do very much sand dune riding, it will serve you well!

Re: 570 enough for us??

Bought a 570 this fall. We have ridden it in all types of terrain from narrow twisting trails to high speed railroad beds and flat dirt roads(at 45-50mph). My wife and I have had a blast and I've never felt like I don't have enough power. No regrets here. If you bought the 570 I don't think you would be disappointed.

Re: 570 enough for us??

your on a 570 forum...

what do you think we are going to say? buy a honda 680? lol j/k


they turn 34's on stock clutching
they are neck and neck with an 800 racing out of the hole
belt and filters are WAY easier to get to
and they come with an aluminum cage in the front diff where the older 800s were plastic.


what else am i missing?

Really they'll turn 34's? That's impressive.

Re: 570 enough for us??

Yes, 570 is the engine displacement in cc's. It's actually 567
The hp to the rear wheels is equal to the 800 because of the dohc engine and the prostar cvt. Me and my buddy weigh 240 each and we ride all over the mountains of WV in my 570.
He has an older 800 and after driving mine, he said he will buy the 570 when he replaces his.

Ummmmm. While I love my 570, you say you "found one locally". What model year, and basic or LE? If it's new at the dealer, check for a local club and see what the opinion of that dealer is. Some are great, some not so much.

If it's used, what year is it? The 2013 had a serious design fault in the intake system leading to many engines requiring an expensive trip to the repair shop for a new cylinder, piston, valves; basically what's called a "top overhaul".

If it's used, how many miles are on it and were all the recommended maintenance items done?

No offense to people selling to upgrade or wanting a new one or whatever the reason but the need to know how it was ridden and taken care of is very important on this machine.

Find the post for New Owners (used to be stickied!) and read thru it. Many little things, like the wire harness that was left laying on top of the muffler to melt and short out, that need inspected before buying.

But, to answer the basic question of "Is it enough" OH HELL YEAH!

Re: 570 enough for us??

With my wife and I, survival gear, Rotopax with fuel & water, tools, etc, we total 550-570 lbs of laden weight.

Loaded like this, we are quite nicely speed matched with friends in 800's (as well as a friend on a Sportsman 850) and seem to climb better.

The biggest problem the Rzr 570 has, in my humble opinion, is the psychological impediment of how small the number is. 570 just sounds smaller than 800.

All the best, James

I own a 2013 800 LE and a 2014 570 LE. I choose the 570 every time. With "all" things considered it's 570 all the way.

Re: 570 enough for us??

I bought a 570 this past spring for my fiance and it is a very capable machine! We trail ride and she doesn't care for the width of the 900 (sometimes I agree) and other than a fire lane or gas well road where I can go, she is glued to my bumper all day! Probably the best "Bang for your Buck" on the market.

Re: 570 enough for us??

If you want to ride the Oregon dunes, there is no replacement for displacement. The 800 is a great and fun machine on the dunes but is short of power for the bigger dunes. Would be very doubtful the 570 would have enough for the sand. When the 800 was the only machine available, users where looking for anyway to add more HP to it for the sand. We are on our second 800. They are great for trails and dune use. You can have so much fun on the sand. Plenty of places to go and enjoy. We broke down and now have a 900XP for real sand use. It is a complete different level over the 800. I would suspect the 900 is over the 800 as the 800 would be over the 570.

Re: 570 enough for us??

The 900 is way over the 800 but the 800 is not way over the 570. I rode an 800 and a 570 before I bought mine. To me the 800 sounded better and that's it.

Both the 900 and the 570 are new technology. Prostar engine and new transmissions. And as others have said easier maintenance.
