Rzr Cleanup time/effort

Just spent almost an hour spraying the mud out of all the nooks and crannies of my 800. I do it after every ride, and have been since my first atv. Made me curious how much time everyone else spends cleanup up their rzr.

Haha that's how it feels for sure. I'm learning pretty quick unlike an atv, these rzrs get mud everywhere not just on the underside. Doesn't even have to be that muddy out.

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

I hate to put my buggy away dirty so I try to stop by the local coin operated car wash on the way home. First I soak it entirely with the "Tire Pre-wash" then I pressure wash(only about 1500psi) with soap. Takes about $10 and thirty minutes with WV mud. With NC red clay it's $18 and 50min.

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

I thought about how much time I put in cleaning, just did it today (2.5 hrs) and realized to close plastic around that engine or front end would trap heat. Not good. So its either clean a lot or have possible heat related issues. I'll take cleaning. We have PA clay around here though too.

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

I've sprayed my ride down with baby oil and spray silicone. Both are great to help mud fall off. And I normally wait a day or two to clean. Another thing I've done is spray muddy bike down with simple green (don't dilute) and let soda for like 10 mins also is a big help.

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

We ride average twice a week. I hose it off at the car wash about every second ride. Really, why? Its just going to get dirty again. We arent insane riders though. Probley 3/4 of my riding could be done in our truck.

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

wheel wells would be nice, but then theres the air flow thing and they are hot blooded to start with. there are some nice block off mods i have seen on here. oh well its only a days worth of cleaning / greasing.

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

I spend several hours after a multi-day trip. Part of the time is removing and reinstalling my Factory UTV skid plate and other accessory parts and pieces. I use Simple Green. After I'm done with the washing part I clean or change the air filter, change the oil and filter, and put grease in all zerks. Even with all that, as soon as I put everything back together I find something I missed.

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

Takes me about 6 to 8 hours to clean and detail after riding!

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

When I bring a friend they usually offer to pay for gas, I say just pay for the car wash, I'll pay for the gas. They think they're getting a better deal until we get to the car wash :-).

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

After the first all weekend ride, I spent about 8 hours cleaning mine. Sprayed entire machine to get mud off, soaked everything with simple green, let it sit about 5 mins, rinse and wash, dry off, and finally sprayed everything down with SC 1 silicone spray. Ready for second outing!

Re: Rzr Cleanup time/effort

I drive mine through the pond or the creek and call it a day. I ride often so I don't get serious about keeping it clean.
