Re: CV BIND for DUMMIES
The type and size of the CV and plunge depth and axle angle all play a part in it. It does not matter what lift kit you use other than the fact if you lift it to the point your cv`s bind ,you will have failure sooner rather than later.
It gets a little more complex though. If on a reg RZR,for example you put offset rims/bigger tires you actually increase the leverage on your shocks,thus decreasing your axle angle.
Now on a rsr s most people don't put offset rims on ,so your axle angle stays lower compared to a non s rzr. The longer the axle ,the LESS the axle angle.So , a 2inch lift on a reg rzr is more likely to bind than a 2 inch lift on a longer axle like on the S.
Wait theres more,depending on how heavy your rzr is (mud ,riders,extras etc.) will go along ways into determining the angle your cv`s/axles run at most of the time.Factor in also most rzr shock springs are prone to sag after a few months .
This would again nullify the lift kit as it would bring the axle angle back to original ride height.....
So it can be some what complex ,yet confusing when so many people claim so many different scenarios worked for them......
Long story short:
For a reg (50 in) rzr,use a racertech (or equivalent) 2 inch lift,highlifter springs,and for models built after 2010 Rhino axles and you will have a good reliable set up with much better offroad ability....................imo
