Opinion!!!!!!!

Well I have been in Moab for the last couple of days with Myself (09 Teryx), and 3 RZR's (one of those being an S). All I can say is I have a new respect for the RZR. Now don't get me wrong I LOVE my Teryx and really like the Differential lock system... and it fits some of my family!!!! However, I really got liking the RZR and I hate Polaris'.

I like their Clutching system on the RZR... You punch and you are gone. The Teryx takes a little while to engage. Also the shorter wheel base is awesome and doesn't bottom out as easy as my Teryx. I will go to 26 or 27 inch tires when I get back home to have a little more clearance... so when I come back down I won't get high centered as easy.

Can't wait to do the 840 kit and some other stuff.

Which clutch kit do you have? If its Dalton PM Helix and he should help you out on set up? Have you had chance to check the belt deflection? Without seeing it and what you wrote earlier, it sound a little loose and part of your issues.

If your not a duner, ever consider a 2" to 3" lift? Help with those clearance issues.

Not really a duner. Yes, I have thought of a lift. Would a 2 or 3 make the Teryx any more top heavy or unstable???????? Who is Helix????? I need to buy a puller and a belt deflection tool!!!!!

The wheelbase of the Teryx is shorter than a RZR, and the ground clearence is higher also.

The RZR S has Fox shocks that cost about $2000 on it and a mid travel kit.

If you need more take off then a Dalton clutch kit will help for sure.

You have to remember you are about 300lbs heavier than RZR.

You have the better vehicle, they stay tore up all the time. RZR's are always on side of trail when I race cross country.

Hunter-

I have the Dalton clutch kit (I don't know if it was clutched right by my dealer) and yes I do know that the Teryx is heavier and the the BETTER machine thats why I bought it. However, I think I need to get your lift kit ordered.

I'll be talking to you maybe tomorrow.

Thanks-

just went on my first outing experience with a rzr yesterday on the rocks. about half way up the trail the polaris broke both rear cv shafts. my teryx made it up the rest of the trail and back with nothing more than a couple "carachter" marks on the skid plate. i'm happy with it. a lift would be nice but so far its good!

Black lt-

Where did you go ride???? There was a Rzr that broke a rear cv axle too, but the other 2 did awesome. I am looking into the lift from Hunterworks and I am looking at putting some bigger tires. I have to be careful though and make sure it still fits in my enclosed trailer.

Look me up and we will go ride sometime.
