New 570EPS, What are my need to do's? Help

Hello, Just bought an new '18 570 EPS.
Reading articles and wanted to know if there is anything I can catch early.
I put on the CV boot protectors, bumper, windshield, roof and back window. Greased the airbox seal and all fluids are topped.
I read the article on the Zirks, think I got them all: the 2 ends of the 4 A-arms, slip joint and 4 sway bushings. Zirks had grease on them but when I pumped in grease, all that came out was mine so I guess they just wipe grease on the zirk to make it look like it was greased.
Read something on the rear wheel bearings but unsure what would need to be done?
I ziptied a rug to the door nets as someone suggested but it gets dusty with a full windshield. The rug keeps the mud and splashes out but I wondering if it's wort it because it keeps a bunch of dust in as well. Any solutions?
The 570 is great and I want to keep it that way. Hoping you 570 guys can help me out and give me some tips, Thank you

Re: New 570EPS, What are my need to do's? Help

Thank you Denver, that's the info I am looking for.
I guess this just forces grease past the seal and into the bearing?
Are they not sealed?
I guess they are dry like everything else so this is a now thing?
Looked on ebay, any seller that you guys use here?
Again thanks for the time.
Does the 900 feel like a rocket compared to the 570? I wanted turf mode, maybe would have gone 900 if it was an option but my son does not need that much muscle anyway. Ha

You can definitely tell a difference in the 900 and I would suggest either putting wheel spacers or different offset wheels to make the 570 wider it makes a big difference because it can easily be put on its side in off camber situations

Re: New 570EPS, What are my need to do's? Help

The spacers/offset wheels are certainly one way to go for added stability. A wider base is going to keep you more planted. I do disagree with the statement that the 570 "can EASILY be put on its side in off camber situations." Metki is correct that widening the stance will make it less easy to roll or flip, but I'm amazed (of course, IMHO) at how stable the stock RZR 570 is in hard turns and off camber situations. I grew up on atv's and stayed away from UTV's because I couldn't use body english on hills, off cambers, tight turns etc... I have the identical year and model RZR as you, and it is currently (although hopefully not for long) still bone stock. If you don't have trail restrictions like 50" trail gates or doing most of your riding on old four-wheeler width trails, then adding width is a great way to go. But I ride curvy trails with steep hills and ravines and I don't ride slowly. As with any tool, you have to learn the limits of your vehicle/device before you push it to the limits of failure or safety. All atv's/utv's are tippy when they are at their limits, some just have much higher limits than others. I still love atv's, but I also love my RZR 570 and am not the least bit worried about putting it on its side. Many more knowledgeable(than me) guys on here will tell you that good aftermarket shocks will not only aid in handling and comfort, but add to the overall stability of the machine as well. Good luck with the new ride, I think you'll love it.

To address your dust problem a full skid plate helps with the dust. An inexpensive trick is to get a Harbor Freight movers blanket 40" X 50" is perfect drape it from under the back windshield(it will help hold it in place) down the firewall & under the seats. You will need to make cuts/holes at several places like the gas cap/sidebar mount/shift lever(place under center console housing)/side & center seat belt mounts/front seat brace & seat lock post. Also duct tape the larger cracks/openings around the firewall & roll bar.

My experience is comparing it to my 900s with 18k in upgrades and my xp1k with the same upgrades to my 570 eps and extreme slow crawl trails that frankly the 570 doesn’t have the ground clearance to conquer as long as you don’t high center this little engine that could will climb like a billy goat and has a buttery smooth drivetrain but the lack of suspension travel and the narrow stance makes it easier to put it on its side compared to others

Thank you for the moving blanket tip, I will look into it.
I shoved two pool noodles in each front wheel well and zip tied to fill that huge gap. Taped them with electric tape and they disappear.
As for going wider, 50" is best for my area.

I guess that the first thing that might be addressed is that the 570 cant be compared to a 900S or an XP in the fact that the 570 is made to be a narrow machine The person riding the 570 has as much to do with it being tippy or not. The best thing to help the 570 is getting rid of those sway bars. They will then articulate more and be much more stable on off camber situations. Yes spacers and offset wheels will help even more but a lot of riders cant go over 50 inches where they ride and if that's your predicament then losing the sway bars is your best bet for off camber stability. You will have to adjust your riding style without the sway bars but you can get used to the machine without them. Now if you want to ride balls to the wall all the time you better leave the sway bars attached but if you are going to trail ride or rock crawl your much better off without the bars, and the ride will also improve a LOT without them. Personally I will never reattach the sway bars....EVER

Re: New 570EPS, What are my need to do's? Help

I took the sways off as soon as I got it then upgraded the crappy factory shocks and springs which helps a lot with the body roll from removing the sways

Re: New 570EPS, What are my need to do's? Help

What you NEED to do?? Greasing the zerks is a great maintenance thing. Keeping your air filter clean/fresh, mandatory. Rear window is good for slowing dust down. Quality shocks, removing swaybars, sure. And of course you can upgrade to no end.
What you NEED to do is go use it, and find out for yourself what YOU would like to do.
You can read page after page here on what many of us upgrade on our 570's.
I would say the quality shocks for more clearance and comfort is a biggy. (shocks and doors were first for me)
What you NEED to do may be minimal. What you WANT to do may be ENDLESS!! Owner beware! LOL ...It becomes a fever.

Re: New 570EPS, What are my need to do's? Help

Maxpolaris, I hear ya. Needs vs wants.
I really got this to ride along when my son drives, the 170 was a knee knocker. I have tight trees and woods to ride and the thing feels good. I have ripped it and feel the sway bars are good, don't have any crawling by me. To the other guys, I will keep shocks in mind.
I felt the seat crossbar yesterday, where the backrest and seat bottom meet. Looks like upgraded seats could be sweet as yours look different than stock.
Adding 4 grease fittings to the rear bushings tomorrow, looking into the wheel bearing greasers as well.

That is the exact reason we have Beard seats - the wife felt the irritating piece at the bottom of the stocks seats, from brand new. Easy upgrade when the wife says go for it.
Beard seats are awesome but don't drain water - PRP might be a better choice (or draining seats anyway). Plus... you might need seat lowering bases as aftermarket seats can sit you higher than stock.
Deviating from stock always makes for extra parts needed... I never learn.

Listen to Maxpolaris. Each of our machines are as unique as the terreign and driving style of each driver.
I set mine up for 50" trail with tall wheels and tires, ground clearence items, shocks, no sway bars and aftermarket skid plate because I hunt in Idaho and need those things for what I do. I did all the cab stuff for creature comforts that help keep me out longer.
Find the niche you need your machine to fit into based on the conditions you drive. Chances are, you'll find what you want and your wallet will hemorage for it. It's been said here a few times that just buying your RZR is just the down payment for the addiction.

Re: New 570EPS, What are my need to do's? Help

Update:
MLK65, you nailed it with the Harbor Freight moving blanket. I caulked all the openings in the front especially the leaky floor to firewall joint but the back was where you could see all the openings. I made floor mats out of Harbor Freight 2x2 foam floor mats and that seemed to knock down on the noise of sticks banging the skid plate. Yesterday was practically a dust free day. Thank you.
Denver, I got the greasers, great invention. When I pulled one rotor/hub off the bearing pulled apart, 10.2 Hrs on the machine : ) All good now.
I had to replace a ripped outer rear cv boot already so I need to make something for that, couldn't find anything for a 2018. Greased the ball joints and rear sway bar end links with the needle that goes in the grease gun and put zirks into the rear hubs so those pivots are all good for now. Cool toy
