2017 XP4 1K purchased new in 2016.
Currently 180 hours and 3,625 miles
ZERO problems.

Some will say I don't drive hard enough which is probably true.
I've also defied the odds using Maxxis Bighorn tires and Gates belts but neither have failed me.
Although the tires do wear quickly especially in the rear since we do ride on the street.
I broke in the oem polaris belt and use it as the spare

I also use $2 furniture polish to keep it shiny and smelling great lol.

Doesn't burn any oil and still looks like liquid gold when I change it
Still running original brake pads. Look new.

I did add SATV sway bar shocks and rzraid tender springs and PRP seats which are holding up great.
Just changed the plugs today. Still look new. I will check compression next time since I don't have my tester here.
Just wanted to say I'm super happy with my rzr and looking forward to more miles of smiles

Anyone have similar results or high mileage rides?

Not overall the highest miles but it has had an eventful 1st year.
7-2021, San Marcos CA, bringing it home to AZ:

Wheel Tire Sky Car Vehicle


10-2021 1st real outting:
Sky Wheel Tire Cloud Automotive tire


10-2022 our last outting:
Wheel Tire Vehicle Sky Hood


10-2021 to 10-2022 1st year of service:
2177 mi / 195 hr, except for "maybe" a 100 mi, every mi has been AZ well off the beaten path back trails.
Not one mechanical issue / challenge / problem. Belt / clutching has been flawless, even w/ the 32" tires.
Had a couple reservations coming from a DCT w/ full locking 4x4. The RZR system has exceed my expectations.
Took the time to appropriately break in 2 belts, using 1 as a "ready to go" spare.
  • I changed the belt this past Sept, didn't "need" it but it's part of my annual "service" when I change diff fluids as well.
  • A/F service at 20 -25 hrs, replaced at 50 hours when the oil is changed. I just switch to a Desertcraft, I'll keep the same service intervals, just not need to replace it.
Mechanically that's it.
Best machine ever? I didn't state that. Overpriced? ummmmm, yes. What I will say is, it has been flawlessly taking us everywhere it has been pointed and getting us back to base glamp.
My one and only actual complaint is.... compliments of all the after-market support.... it a HUGE money pit 馃挵 馃 馃ぃ馃ぃ..

2018 XP1000 TRE, purchased April of 2018. Just turned over 17,000 miles (Correct number of zeros).
Other than wearing out the original clutches completely, no real problems. Serviced every 1000 miles.
Did replace one fuel pump. And no, it does not still look like new! I bought it to ride, not polish!

How do people keep their exhaust pipes looking so good? Mine looked like shit after a few rides and have looked that way for the past 2 years. View attachment 708740
Mine gets like that after getting into some mud
After a normal ride and it cools down I spray some WD40 on it
If it gets grundgy I pressure wash and use steel wool and then some high temp bbq paint
Makes it look brand new

I'm replying back with my compression numbers
150 psi both cylinders when cold.
I'm guilty of not checking my valve lash yet but everything has been running great
Probably play in the snow tomorrow :)

From stock to it's current state it's been one badass machine. It does everything I ask of it and is far more cable of a machine than I am a driver. It's conquered some of the toughest trails all over the country. It goes damn near anywhere my Ultra4 buggy on 40s can go.

Meet Stella, I purchased this XP1k in 2017 I owned it until 2019 and sold it to one of my best friends. She does all of her own maintenance and up keep on the machine. Stella has 5500 miles on her and still going strong. With just a few items replaced. I rebuilt the secondary clutch and replaced the left rear wheel bearing. My friend and her dad replaced all of the axle boots. This is still a great machine.
