Breaking axles in the rzr 1000
 
My buddy and I bought two new 1000 two weeks ago, within for hours we both broke the left rear axle shafts. Polaris replaced both of them without delay. Both machines have around twelve hours and we both lost drive function. I think the secondary clutch or possibly something in the transmission failed. I will post the results. Also thinking about putting a race together in Co Spgs, wondering if there is any interest from other owners the track is already built.

Were you jumping them on the track you built ? did you have your foot on the gas when you landed ?? Have you checked your belt ?

Possibly didn't pay attention at first but we are off the gas on every jump since and haven't broke them. Also running in all wheel drive now

Just for the record I'm not dogging on the machine nor am I disappointed with it in any way. If I could I would buy another one!
