570 Axle Stone Damage

The XP 900 has this problem on the drivers side. The RZR 570 has the problem on both sides. Picture 25 & 26 are from my buddies stock 570 with 424 miles. Picture 27 & 28 are from the drivers side on my 570 with 2 inch wheel spacers and a bit over 1,600 miles. Polaris needs to add stone guards to both of these models.

On the drivers side its possible to have a stone jam on the drive boot clamp causing boot failure. I expect there will be trans case damage with high mileage. I just hate the stone grinding and the shock load on the axle bearing as the stone grinds through the gap.

The 2 inch wheel spacers reduce the problem and I may install some stone deflectors or shields to prevent this problem.

Re: 570 Axle Stone Damage

Would the A-arm guards avoided these damages?

Re: 570 Axle Stone Damage

Nope I have A-arm guards. It going to take a inner fender. I get small stones on top of the engine and everywhere else under the bed. It like a tornado under the engine cover. I hope a vender will make something available and for the XP 900 too.

Re: 570 Axle Stone Damage

Is this issue only for ProStar engine configuration with combined tranny/rear diff?

Re: 570 Axle Stone Damage

Yes just the XP900 and RZR 570. I don't think this will cause a failure except for maybe a boot clamp getting scraped off and that could take 10,000 miles in the desert. It would take a wedge shaped stone to jam and damage the aluminum case.

How about wrapping it with some black tape?

Re: 570 Axle Stone Damage

Pictures 001 through 011 are my 570 with 2,100 miles. Polaris really needs to offer stone guards for desert riding. I find small stones and sand on top of the engine and everywhere in the engine area. A inner fender might fix this problem or a stone guard near the axle area.

I'm not waiting on Polaris and will make some stone guards. Care must be taken to avoid heat problems by blocking cooling air flow.
