Well after this weekend I have decided I am going to purchase a lift kit and I guess that means i'll need spacers too.

I have a 2010 standard width rzr. I have after market polaris sixer wheels and 27" bighorns with no rubbing issues because the sixers allowed me the extra off set for my bighorns. After this past weekend I have lost 1 front a-arm guard, half a factory skidplate, and beat the heack out of my body on some really rocky trails around my house. It wasn't very enjoyable going 5 kilometers per hour and under over a trail littered with rocks ranging in size from a small mellon up to very large pumpkins.

I would like to have a 3" lift and I suppose 1.5" spacers would be enough?

Here is what i'm looking at and if you could give me some input or opinions on these items that would be great.

I live in Nova Scotia, Canada and we have no suppliers out here besides dealers and overpriced crap. Purchasing this stuff from my dealer it would run me over $1,000.00 easy.

If you have a standard RZR not an RZR-S, a lift & spacers is a must. I don't think I'd add more than 2" of lift due to the angle on the CVs.

Spacers might make it rub the floorboard in the front...not for sure with 27" tires. I know 29.5s rub with spacers but clear fine without...

I'm running the 3" EMP lift and i went through a period where I went through rear cv axles every ride...i "fixed" the problem by having a lighter foot but they would always break the cup on the inner side of the axle which is almost always due to too steep an angle. The proper fix is less lift. I wouldn't recommend going over 2" in the rear or risk breaking axles like toothpicks...

That's exactly why I have a spare rear and front axle...

I'm running the lift you're asking about, and so far love it. It makes a huge difference in how often I impact the bottom of the rzr. Actual lift is closer to 2 inches though, even with the spring spacers installed. I don't run spacers with mine, so I can't comment on those, but with the stock LE rims and tires I don't have any issues.

I've got the EMP 2" lift with 1.5 inch spacers from UTV inc. No complaints. American made too, but since U are in Canada U could give Paul a call at Rubberdown Customs and get his 2" lift. He is a site sponsor too. He is from Niagra Falls, Canada eh!

I ran a racertech 2" lift and 2" wheel spacers and was fine before I bought long travel. 26 inch tires on 14 inch polaris crusher rims. I was close to 60 inches wide and had 11" to 12" of clearance.

Hey Searching_UT, do you have any issue with your rzr being too narrow or tippy without the wheel spacers? I want to install that lift but that is my catching point. I actually have my rzr weighted down so it probably pushes the wheels out a bit anyway.

I too live in NS. I have the same setup as you with the wheels. I have added a 3" Roktek lift and no spacers were needed for mine.

Just my .02$

That sounds good mahoganymidget. So you have the same wheels and tires that I have? I would have thought for sure that the spacers would have been needed as i'm already pretty close with my tires. Well if I can get away without spending more money on spacers that I don't need thats great.
So have you had any problems with your 3" Roktek? Did you ever have to replace a shaft or anything because of the lift? Also if you don't mind me asking where did you purchase your lift and how much was it?
Was it hard to install? Did you have to drill or change anything on the bike to get it installed?

Sorry for all the questions... LOL
