Average Stock Top speed?

I was told by a dealer that most are around 60 to 62mph, seems mine hits the limiter at around 57? Is this the average for stock? I recently purchased mine about 2 weeks ago.... so assuming its a gen3.

Re: Average Stock Top speed?

I purchased mine about a month ago...

I've hit 62+ a couple times... with my clutch spacer removed. If you still have the spacer, that's probably why you're hitting 57 tops...

Here's a thread I made with a walk-through to remove it. Some people have said it's BAD to remove it, but there's no evidence to support that, and there's 100's of people, like myself, that have been running without it from day 1, and had NO problems!

My dealer told me it was just a governor, because they decided 55MPH was fast enough for a side-by-side...

Re: Average Stock Top speed?

Gotcha, nice walk through, I've read both sides of this spacer removal and may end up doing it as well. Worse case I blow a belt right heh? Although I am looking to add a exhaust, intake and clutch kit eventually so may wait and do it then.

That's exactly what I've been saying...

WORST CASE, it costs you $50... lol

Well worth the months, and 100's of miles you may put on it!

650 miles on one rig and about 80 on the other, NO belt issues with the spacer removed.
56 Stock
60 No spacer

Re: Average Stock Top speed?

I've gotten 55 and wasn't at the top end, the only mod. is 26" tires. One of these days I'll see what it will do wide open.

Hopefully you weren't basing that on your gauges, and used GPS, right?

With the bigger tires, your speedo isn't accurate and reads lower than the actual speed you're going...

Re: Average Stock Top speed?

stock, my speedometer would hit 63 - 64 max. Dont know if it has the clutch spacer in it or not. I tend to think they left it out after everthing I have read. Now, I have 26" bighorns on 14" itp beadlock wheels and 57-58 is all I've seen out of the speedometer.

Even though it's indicating slower.... with a bigger tire, you're probably going the same speed, or close to it!

Did you buy yours used, or did the dealer take it off? I doubt they would remove it without being asked for legal reasons...but If it was hitting that with the spacer on thats awesome.

Re: Average Stock Top speed?

I haven't got to check mine against a gps yet. I was to busy driving to look at the stupid thing. I just got one of those Lowrance Baja 540c GPS's but haven't got it mounted yet. Maybe then I can check stuff while I've got my hand full of driving.

Bought it new in october. Its a gen 2. My neighbor (stacrzr) bought his new in december, also gen 2, and mine tended to be faster. His speedometer would hit 55 -57 but i think our last ride he said he hit 60 on a short stretch of pavement we had to ride on. We could only reason that his had the spacer and mine didn't because the only difference between them is the color - mine being red and his green. If i find time this weekend, I'll take the clutch cover off and just see if I have the spacer or not.

Re: Average Stock Top speed?

Guys just a word of caution about playing around at top speeds. Prior to me putting new tires and wheels on, I decided to run the pavement as fast as i could not worrying about wearing my stock tires out. At about 56, I went into a violent judder bouncing and chirping on the pavement. It caught me by complete suprise and it worried me greatly to what was wrong with my rzr. Couldn't find anything wrong with it untill i put the new wheels on and seen all the mud caked inside the stock rims. The mud through off the wheel balance and it didn't ease into it or behave like you'll find with your car. So Keep em clean.

You just nailed it...

Yours was red, so that explains why it was faster...
