Re: 800s or 900xp razor

You'll love the 900XP if you decide to go that route! I came from a trail width 2011 RZR to a 2012XP and have no complaints. You'll get more ground clearance, power, and suspension travel with the XP.

Re: 800s or 900xp razor

If you have the money and have open country to push for the speed limit, go for the XP.

Re: 800s or 900xp razor

appriciate the info guys. sounds like the 900 is the way to go.if your gonna put out that much for a toy, whats a few more payments. lol. from what im reading on this forum there seems to be alot of talk about oil changes,greasing, and basically complete inspection after every ride, also some guys are having to replace axles, wheel bearings,etc with low mileage. is this do to power ,torque or abuse. just wondering.

im thinking abuse, landing while on the throttle, hitting stuff, ect ect.
whenever you buy something new just go over it, it dosnt take to long. you also get a sence of security knowing everything was good when you went for that 1st ride.
I would also go xp like evryone posted above. I have 700 miles on mine with no isues...st

Re: 800s or 900xp razor

XP for sure, you can make them shine on the trail too, not just at WOT. The extra ground clearance, power, and suspension are definitely worth the extra coin.
