I don't think anyone has a non ebs helix for your 900 yet

But you don't have EBS now, just a EBS secondary but no one way bearing

Everyone has engine braking down to around 15 mph, nothing you can do about that.

The ebs parts take over at 15 and below

Re: Polaris Engine Braking (EBS) explained

Hello Todd,
I have a '16 570 LE with EBS. I don't like the EBS so much. As a couple other 570 owners said, you can't steady throttle down slow steep hills. Kinda scary as the back end wants to come around.
I also plow with mine in the winter, and have already just a couple of days ago.
The EBS kicks in in slow downhills on the ice and snow and again the back end DOES come around. I have to blip it to keep from spinning out.
Definitely not cool.

So switching to the two way bearing will reduce this?
This is the biggest gripe about my 570.
Do I buy the two way from you or a Polaris factory one?
Thank you

Yes switching would fix most of that, would free wheel below around 4 mph

You can get them from Polaris but we sell a HD one, the Polaris one for your model is really cheap, made in china and fails often.

Re: Polaris Engine Braking (EBS) explained

Thanks Todd,
I will purchase from you soon. This should be a good upgrade.
I hadn't heard much of the 570 guys complaining - thought I was the only one lol.

Re: Polaris Engine Braking (EBS) explained

Hi, this is open question but likely directed at Todd at Hunterworks, I ride a a 2011 RZR 800 EFI/ PS, with sure grip hand controls,(t-4 para) I would like to add some extra braking, for steeper inclines, and top of hill cresting, due to the hand control function its impossible to half brake and excellerate at the same time , so roll back happens a lot
Regards
Bill

The last part messed me up, "so roll back happens alot" What does that mean?

We can add engine braking to your RZR, will require a EBS secondary clutch, a matching primary weight and spring change which we do that with a clutch kit and if you want more engine braking than the EBS secondary provides then we have the one way bearings for the primary clutch

Re: Polaris Engine Braking (EBS) explained

Todd: sorry for confusion , what I mean ,say half way up a hill there's a stump rock what ever, let off on gas to assess said obstacle but can't brake fast enough ( with hand controls) so the unit rolls back, until brake or gas is reapplied

Regards
Bill

P.S. Great post

Engine braking can't help that, the secondary clutch will actually turn backwards in a roll back and the bearing on the primary clutch simply will roll backwards therefore even if you had the engine braking it would not work in a roll back.

A 2012 RZR does not have engine braking
