XP 1000 engine is a stroked and modified 900

So a guy at the Polaris trailer here at dunefest told me that the 999cc engine is a stroked out 900 with other modifications... he said something about the head was changed for better cooling, and that the oiling for the pistons was changed/improved for the 999cc version....

anyone else hear anything about this???

Wonder if we can get the crank for the 900 engine?

In one of FJK's crank comparison pics, the crank snout looks larger then the 900, so it won't be a drop in and go swap, if even possible, if that's what your thinking...

ya, and the fuel system, ecu, and other stuff is different.
engine swaps are a lot more difficult than people think.

Re: XP 1000 engine is a stroked and modified 900

Now I am hearing that its based off the Ranger 900 and not the RZR 900. Not sure what the differences are. I don't pay much attention to the Ranger line up.
