Excess heat coming through the front

2017 RZR 4 900 I have excess heat coming through the the firewall and where the cup holders are, if you put a bottle of water in one of the front cup holders at the end of the ride you can make a hot cup of tea, if you’re ankle hits the bottom part of the console you will almost burn yourself, anyone else have this problem?

Re: Excess heat coming through the front

Make sure your fan is working correctly. What is the engine temp running?

Looks normal. Ride faster and keep the windshield open.

Re: Excess heat coming through the front

A Polaris RZR with too much heat in the center console?

Well, that's a first. . . . . . . . . NOT!

Try a RZR 1000. It will cook your ankles and turn your cold soda to a hot drink. Great if you drive in the winter and like hot chocolate.

Search Wolfsnout LINKY for insulation kits. It helps.

Re: Excess heat coming through the front

Just placed some insulation around the cup holders and put a small sheet of it over the coolant lines under the cup holder. I think it should help.

Re: Excess heat coming through the front

On my 2017 XPT I went with the Wolfsnout UTV-Cooler-Cab-Kit. Before I did this a frozen water bottle in the cup holder riding in 75 degree weather the ice would be melted in under 1 hour. After the kit was installed the frozen bottle of water same outside air temp there was still ice in the bottle 2 hours later. The heat in the cab was cut way down.

Re: Excess heat coming through the front

Simple fix..........remove console, turn it over, use some spray foam around cup holders, let it dry/cure, re-install console. $5 bucks spent. Works great.
More expensive fix..........your fan should be coming on at 204-206, not 218-224.

My buddy with a 900 just put a flap type seal on the panel behind his seats. That seam the 900 has was unbearable in his. Made a world of difference

Remember everybody that the spray foam is flammable even after it has cured

I have wrapped the coolant lines with header wrap and used fire block spray foam on multiple rzrís with very good results and is by far the cheapest way to do it. If you have a open flame in your console itís going to burn with or without spray foam.

Well some ppl wouldnt think to use the fireblock spray they would use the normal gap filler stuff and the header wrap is a good idea also. I am just saying that the stuff can catch fire it's not fireproof
