I'm a first time Forum user and a first time RZR owner

I'm from Southern California and just purchased a RZR 900 a few weeks ago. Is there anything about these things I should know that the dealer wouldn't tell me/ want me to have known? haha

Thanks,
John

Re: I'm a first time Forum user and a first time RZR owner

Hey John welcome to the forum from So Cal and congrats on your purchase! The only thing you have to watch for is behind the passenger seat. On slower rides it gets really hot and melts the plastic. You can invest in a $40 heat shield fix from UTV inc. other than that the 900 is a bitchin machine.

Rzr Weber Sold. Need new ride desperately!

Thanks for the welcome. Thanks for the heads up about the melting pastic. I'll keep an eye out for that.

Re: I'm a first time Forum user and a first time RZR owner

Just in time for Labor Day weekend ride…I’m out of Chula Vista thinking of either Ocotillo Wells, Glamis if it’s not 113F like this week or Sierra Mountains trails are having a private group ride/dinner/jamboree think they got 40 jeeps and 15 sxs signed up so far leaning more towards this weather looks better mid 70’s. Where u riding?

I got an 900 XP too 230 miles w/o a single issue. Yes gets a little hot under the seat in hot weather but I've been in cold cascades, WA trails, OR dunes where it was welcome, no melting here yet....nothing some cheap insulation from Lowes won’t solve, the one for windows with an air/insulation gap between heat tin reflective tape use whats left around the shifter, etc.

As far as other potential issues what yr do you own?
