Re: street legal in michigan ?

has anyone had a problem with the rear end getting damaged from riding it on the pavement and turning too sharp? because it is a "locked" rear end, is it strong enough to handle the stress from too much traction?

I try to stay off of hard surfaces as much as possible. Avoid sharp turns and don't run to hard. No problems yet.

Re: street legal in michigan ?

cost can vary greatly, the safety glass windshield with wiper - $400 plus, parking brake - $120, turn signal, horn kit - $200, DOT tires and wheels $800-1000, mirrors $50-150, separate head lights so you have hi-low beams - $100-150, so its not for the fugal spenders to get street legal, but the long term cost of not being hassled by the law is priceless. You aren't restricted to only shoulders of roads and you can ride at night time that other ORV riders must be off the road at dust...again priceless, you can ride almost anywhere you choose...forest roads, two-tracks, paved roads, state roads...you choose where...again priceless. I went this route with making my dirt bike street legal and just to see the look that the DNR gives me when he pulls me over to ticket me and then sees the street legal license plate...PRICELESS

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Hi/low beams? Mine came stock with hi/low beams. Is that something polarize added to the 2011 models or do I need to upgrade something?

Re: street legal in michigan ?

My 2008 RZR only had the factory lights and I added a second set which I use as my low beam and the factory lights as my high beam as the dash switch has a blue light indicator with you need for a high beam indicator. If you only have the factory lights which don't have a hi-lo beam you will need a second set of lights

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Great thread guys, I am about to get a RZR 4 for the family and want to confirm that the RZR can run all the sholders of the roads just like an ATV correct? Does that include the Jeep trails up in the Roscommon area? Thanks

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Yup, 20mph on the shoulder of all roads excluding state highways, snowmobile trails are considered seasonal roads. If by jeep trails you mean the orv routes that have the mixed traffic signs then yes, its allowed on those too.

Re: street legal in michigan ?

To do that all we need is an ORV sticker correct?

Re: street legal in michigan ?

Yeah, orv sticker covers you for all of that, if you get it plated then you don't have to stay on the shoulder and you don't have to worry about the 20mph speed limit on the snowmobile trails.
