Is is possible to chop a RZR4 stock cage without bending any pipe? I was told is was possible, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how.
I didn't bend any tubing when I did mine. I had a thread on this in the RZR4 specific section. I'll look for it. I can give you a walk through of it. It wasn't that difficult at all.Is is possible to chop a RZR4 stock cage without bending any pipe? I was told is was possible, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how.
The front section is unaltered yes. I cut 2.5 inches from the middle 2 vertical supports. You want to cut above and below the bend so that when it drops down they line up. The 2 rear vertical bars were cut 4.5 inches I believe. On the rears you want to cut maybe 1.75 from the top of the bend and the other 2.75 from the bottom. I just cut 2.25 from top and bottom but then they didn't line up when I dropped them down so I had to cut the rear horizontal bar to allow the vertical bars to seperate and line up. If you cut how I suggested instead of how I did it it would be real close to lining right up without cutting that rear bar.I see that it looks like there are 7 cuts:
Cut #1 & #2, just above the bend in the center support, right and left side
Cut #3 & #4, just above the bend on the rear support, right and left side
Cut #5, vertical cut in the center of the rear cross member
Cut #6 & #7, top of vertical supports for rear cross member
Are there any more that I didn't see?
How much did you cut out on cut #1 & #2?
How much on cut #3 and #4?
Cut #5 looks as though it gets an additional piece added?
The front section of the cage, from where it bolts near the hood to where it bolts to the center section, is unaltered, correct? If so, how do you get the center chopped center section to line up with the unaltered front section? By lowering the center support, it would seem that it would no longer line up with the unaltered front piece.
