Yes, tire weight in conjunction with taller tire is a huge factor. In the other thread, I said that was exactly why went from a heavy 35lbs/tire RipSaw set up to a 21lbs/tire setup. With the heavier setup, if you run it in high and take long steep hills, your machine will lose steam without a clutch kit. Problem is, the clutching only does so much. It give and take. I had to compromise my top end and hit Rev limiter at 48mph (10 mph less than stock setup), but my low and mid power band was fantastic, arguably faster to 30 than stock. I started running with more 900 groups and wanted a bit more speed on logging roads as that's what these groups preferred. I went to Denniskirk.com and research a lighter rolling stock setup and came up with a setup that was only 1/2 shorter tire but shaved a total of 65+ lbs in wheels and tires. With only 45hp, it allowed me to change clutching so that my power and was very even all the way across as well as my 58mph Rev limit.
Think about what your driving preferences are, terrain you travel, and how you use your machine.
I use mine to hunt in the fall, but run mountain road and trails with a kayak strapped on top to fish during the summer, and desert running in the winter. My entire setup including doors, windshield, etc are setup to meet these preferences. I never went for a look. I'm more of a function over form kind of guy.
I plan on adding power steering to my 2016 RZR. I was under the impression I should upgrade the battery also to a 30 amp. But when I look at the service manual it lists the same battery for the 570 and the 570 LE. A Yuasa YB14-B2/14 amp Hr./12 volt. I also have a 3500 # winch on it. If the...
Just wondering what you would do. Have a 2017 570 EPS with 5K very easy miles on it. We ride mostly dusty trails during the summer and nothing too extreme. The oil is changed probably more than it needs, the air cleaner is changed almost every ride, gets greased every time the oil gets...
We're looking for a newer 2017-2020 RZR 570 to play around with for a week or two. We can't seem to find one locally. If you're near us, Madison, IN, we'd love to toy with one for a week or two. You'll get some freebies out of it. ;)
