Polaris heat shield vs UTV inc heat shield?

I've got the UTV inc heat shield on my 2011 XP and it works great. Polaris has a recall and will install the Polaris Heat shield. I haven't seen the Polaris version and am wondering what you guys think about the two? Should I bother getting the Polaris Heat Shield? Thanks.

Probably not. Polaris should owe UTV inc ....they look almost identical.

how do you tell if your RZR has a recall on it? Is there a website, or just calling a dealer? I know the late '12s and '13s all have an extra heat shield, but when I called me dealer, they acted like they didnt show it in their computers.

Polaris has link where you enter your VIN # that will list any applicable recalls for your rzr. Sorry I do not have the link on my phone.

Re: Polaris heat shield vs UTV inc heat shield?

No need to look at the VIN if you are the original owner. Loosen the engine panel and look, if you can see an aluminum panel back there, you're good. If you don't see one then you need it.
They're both about the same so why would you pay for something if you can get it free?

Sounds like horse crap to me...my dealer gave me one just to clear the bulletin from the system (I already had the UTV inc shield) It was a Technical Service Bulletin..which means only fix if the customer complains basically. Run you VIN on that site and see if the bulletin shows up, if it does I'd call Polaris and tell them the dealer wants to charge to complete a billetin and see what they say. If it doesn't show the bulletin and yours doesbt have the heat shield I would ask Polaris about that as well..but that would probably be something the dealer should look into.

Re: Polaris heat shield vs UTV inc heat shield?

My vin didn't show any bulletins on that website. Seems like it should have something, the plastic shroud has started to melt from the heat. Oh well, im going to order it from my dealer tomorrow. I'm not going to get into big ordeal with dealer over $25. Thanks for the info guys. Sounds like you have way better dealer than i have, which isn't surprising to me. Way over priced, and just not knowledge on off road vehicles.

This is the UTV inc heatshield..the Polaris one looks virtually identical but is one piece.
Main thing is it gives one a clear way to check if they have "the" heat shield or not. If you don't have something that looks like this you don't have "the" heat shield
