While @ Bricks Off Road Park Bricks Offroad Park I was doing doughnuts in a small mud field and hit a hole, rolling my Rzr 4 on its side. Other than a small bruise to my left knee from the steering wheel, all is well. I had two passengers and the one in the rear seat sustained a small bruise as well. The only damage was some flaking paint around a weld on the ROPS system. My CD never skipped and the engine never died. Any good roll over stories out there? :)

Ended up on my side this weekend as well. Went to flip a "U" and my RZR rolled onto the driver side. Few bruises/Scapes and a sore shoulder. Also injured hand trying to grab the door from swinging open. 9 Year old passenger un-harmed. We were both wearing seat belts. Very little damage done to the RZR. Only damage was my Pro Armor door hinges broke. When I was turning sharp the stupid latch (JUNK!) flipped open and when we rolled the door hinges were snapped. Should be easy to weld new replacements back on. I have had nothing but problems with this early style pin latches. Need to look for a new replacement. Besides the little rollover it was a Fun weekend!

Donuts = rollover your lucky. I personally know someone who daughter was driving they had a rollover passenger grabbed onto the roll bar and she lost several fingers all happened in a second.

I never had mine an hour, I was doing donuts in a corn field watching it throw corn stubble up in air I knew I was pushing the limits then I was laying on side. No damage except scratch in the paint.

if the paint came off at the weld.....that means something is bent

I've been guilty of tipping one over too!!!

Funny story, I was a passenger in a RZR 4 when the dummy I was ridding with began to do a doughnut in a mud pit too. Kind of funny how I landed in the mud. The radio I was listening to never skipped either.

Come off a trail head into an open field. Turned into the field at about 25mph, did not see the 10" stump, caught it with the left front wheel and went up and over, hit the top right corner of the cage, rolled over the roof and came to rest on the drivers door. No damage to the front suspension, just some cosmetic damage. I think my damage was limited due to a 3" lift and 30" tires on Hiper Dakar 14" Carbon Fiber Wheels. I think if I had the 12" wheels and 26" tires, I would have likely bent a wheel and bent the suspension.

Yes. The center ROPS bar located between the front and rear seat is bent slightly. No welds are broken and I should be able to pull it straight

Wow...Hit a 10" stump at 25mph with no damage! That's nuts. I'd of figured that kind of impact would tear that side's whole front-end clean off the machine. Those big tires were like air-bags for the a-arms. Amazing there was no damage. Very lucky

My avatar says it all 2nd day. I have made changes so it is much harder to get it to tip know. Slight bend in the cage and some sratches and chips but its all good. A little sand paper and black spray paint almost can not tell. The wheel flairs show the most they are scratched but it is for off roading.

I was in the swamp area this weekend at River Run and I rolled mine for the first time on the left side :scared2:...after 7 oil changes and some other stuff Tom did, it started right up. WHEW! If it starts smoking I want a Big Bore kit.:ride:

Maybe it's just me but if I was about to roll over the last thing on my mind would be if the CD skipped or not. :rofl3: I have rolled over and my only concern was if the passenger and myself was OK.:scared2:

You're funny!:rofl3: What the heck does a rollover have to do with a big bore kit? You're not trying to intentionally drown that thing are ya:rofl3::rofl3:
