How many rzr s with transmission problems?

My transmission went down on my 2010. Polaris had paid for the parts but I have to pay $1200 for the labors. It's funny because the have a kit to replace the junk they installed at the factory but the denied it's a problem like the bad spring suspension! What a ripped???

Yeah Vista, check some other dealers before you spend the $1,200.

Re: How many rzr s with transmission problems?

Not having one in my garage just yet, is this something a person that has pulled apart motorcycle motors/trans etc. and put back together again could do? If there is some type of upgrade for it I'm wondering if they would just give it to me at the time of purchase and I would switch it out myself? I ain't scared

Re: How many rzr s with transmission problems?

Wow, tranny problems? First time I've heard of this on the Rzr. What's the "upgraded kit" you guys spoke of?

Re: How many rzr s with transmission problems?

I purchased my Rzr-s in Dec 09' but it's a 2010 model. Is there a recall for this issue? What is causing the failures?

Re: How many rzr s with transmission problems?

Yeah, first I've heard of this one too. Curious what the kit is.

Re: How many rzr s with transmission problems?

My 2010 S just broke the trans this last week when on vacation in Colorado. Its got 41 hrs and 360 miles on it. Broke going downhill letting the engine do the braking,
low and AWD engaged. Reverse still works but jumps out of low or high. I checked the manufacture date on the frame behind the RF shock and it says 7/10/09. So does it have the redesigned parts already installed at the factory? I can`t believe the belt is stronger than the trans. If it already has the so called better parts in it I think I`ll be selling this P.O.S. since the trans can`t be trusted to get you back to camp.

Not True,

I bought new about 30 days ago. Mine was built late Dec 2009

Could still be true if 5/2010 is the build date.

Frightening how many issues Polaris is still having.

NV Re: How many rzr s with transmission problems?

What is the nature of the problem? My 2010 S has a build date of 3/25/10, and now has 1560 miles on it. If there is a problem with the tranny on pre-May 2010, what symptoms does it typically have?

NV Re: How many rzr s with transmission problems?

Thanks, Kevin. None of that so far, so maybe I got lucky! On the flip side, this weekend I noticed it starting to make a sort of ticking sound when going downhill using engine braking. Louder in low than high. Might also be an exhaust leak, but check that.
