First off, the family will be totally new at the side x side with the exception of riding my friends 2010 rzr-s earlier in the year. It was awesome to say the least. We ride 90% in the local desert (not sand yet) in Southern California and go out about 5 times a year for 3-4 day weekends. We don't abuse our toys (2 and 4 stroke dirtbikes), but they definitely get rode like they were built to.

After tearing my ACL's in both knees a few years ago the wife and I have decided to go with the side x side and keep the kids riding their 2 wheelers.

My buddy who owns the the rzr-s is going to get on the waiting list for the competitors newly released machine and recommended I did too, but I think I can save a few thousand by going with the 2011 rzr-s model.

Great info here of course. Now we have to go out this weekend and deal with the dealer. My questions are:

Any word on Polaris upgrading the engine to compete with the competitors bigger engine? Just kind of worried about resale value in a few years when/if we want to upgrade.

My wife wants a few add ons right of the get go. Hard roof, doors, windshield and harness. Should I purchase from the dealer or get aftermarket?

Any other suggestions as to accessories I should add?

I usually do all maintenance on my bikes as far as oil and filter change. What am I looking at maintenance wise with a side x side whether I do it or send it to dealer?


Of course my local dealer said "just come down and we can work something out with the Razor, we have a lot of stock and have a bunch with added accessories on them already."

Sorry for the long post, but I want to get the best advice possible before heading in to the dealer. And I also want to feel comfortable about purchasing the right toy.

Thanks for looking

Welcome first,I don't think polaris will make a big engine after to much hope on the 2010 and 2011 but a HOLZ-BB stage 3 will do the job,you could buy accessories from the dealer or any place that have great deals,UMPorDFR airfilter if you are running desert,you could maintenance in home or the dealer it is your choice,all dealers say"just came down and we can work out with the razor, we have a lot of stock and have a bunch with added accessories on them already''.

First welcome. The ump or dfr air filter and 5 point harness first. Then i'd look into a good after market Skid plate. All the items your looking for are available from our site sponsors. I don't like recommending one over the other. You'll find there all great guys and gals and are willing to help. Don't look for any engine change in the near future. The Rzr is still ruling the roost. As for maintenance, most is pretty simple. Any problems you may have will be answered on this forum. Hope this helps.
