Buy a used 800 or 900

Looking at buying a used razor! What year did they stop making the 800? And is it worth buying the 900?

Re: Buy a used 800 or 900

Last year for 800 was 2014. From what I've seen, read and experienced with buddies that have the 2015+ 900 yes they are worth it. 20hp more than 800, set up for easier maintenance, built a bit better, pretty easy to tune for more power. Having said that, I have not upgraded from my 800 S, it does everything I need/want it to. And it's modded exactly how I want it at this point. And honestly for where I ride, if I upgraded, I would just jump to a xp1k at this point.

Re: Buy a used 800 or 900

Basic maintenance tasks (e.g., belt changes/clutch maintenance) are much easier on the 900. That alone would be reason enough for me - I'm glad I never had to change a belt on the side of the trail in my 800, it was a real pain.

Been there, done that! And yes it was a pain, at least it wasn't my rzr! Lol!

Re: Buy a used 800 or 900

Bought my first 800 50" April 2018, sold it within 2 months as I knew almost immediately I wanted a 60" and bought the S4 900 in late May 2018, wanted a 4 seater for the kids and its been a great machine for me (though only owned it for 1yr so far). But if I had it to do over, I'd just splurge and get the 1000xp for a few reasons.

- top of the line suspension
- 14" wheels and 29" tires from the factory
- nicer gauge cluster in the cockpit
- 100 hps on 87 octane gas, the 900s are detuned from the factory, and while they can be "uncorked" easily with an ECU tune, that usually forces you to run 91+ octane fuel which can be an extra hassle to deal with in some riding areas

This is all just my opinion and none of these are real game breakers, but 20/20 hindsight and all... Good luck.

800's pushrod engine and transmission design is from 2008. ProStar overhead cam engine (570, 900, 1000) and transmission design is much newer; I think the first 88hp XP900 was in 2014.

SOLD!!! 2012 RZR 570, with most of the accessories.
Bought!!! 2015 RZR S900 Titanium! Let the fun begin (again)!!
XB3 fire extinguisher, in cab. RAM-mounted Samsung Tab GPS. Larsonator DIY dual rate spring kit and Schmidty Racing resi end caps. Garage Products bushings. BugBuster mesh windscreen and rear mesh screen. Outerwears on R2C air filter and clutch intake. 3500# Winch, parking brake. Polaris DVR mirror & Drift Innovation action camera. PRP harnesses. Roof. DIY mud flaps. Tusk front bumper. UHMW A-arm guards. Hunterworks Gates Carbon belt.
