What is RZR XP 1000

The RZR XP 1000 is designed for uncompromising performance, with an optimal combination of power, suspension, and agility in a flawlessly balanced chassis that gives the utmost confidence and control.

According to Polaris: The Optimal Power, it has been extensively engineered to provide the ultimate high performance you need. It’s also agility enough and designed to deliver high performance while keeping you in control. And the vehicle enhances the rider’s experience and the re-engineered interior to provide a better ride for all applications.

[Certificated Performance] RZR series is made for challenging terrains. Strong power it has, to the moment you need. The outstanding chassis combines power, suspension, and agility to provide confidence and control in all conditions.

[Design perfectly from inside to outside] RZR XP1000 is the machine both as good as it looks and conquers rough roads. Quality digital instruments on the inside keep the drive in sync with the machine, while sharp LED trim on the outside sets you apart.

We all know that: Its a fantastic rig for riding. It has got the right amount of power to riders and it has done quite a good stuff. You may have some issues, both are parts issues(to change a reliable one!). But its been just a great machine overall.


How much does an RZR XP 1000 weight

Knowing the specification of the RZR XP 1000 can let you more directly decide which type of vehicle you can choose. Some people may prefer heavier models because they are less likely to roll over on the road and feel better behind the wheel. RZR XP 1000 is 662 kg and 1460 lbs in dry weight.


How wide is an RZR XP 1000 

When you are driving a machine, especially on rugged trails, then you might care about if your machine is too wide to cross any trails. (Of course, if you indulge in crossing through the trails, the ATV is more recommended.) The overall width (in) of RZR XP 1000 is 64. Bed Width(in) is 22, and no Cargo Bed Tilt for the XP 1000.


How long is an RZR XP 1000 

Maybe some people say that the longer your buggy is, the stronger it is. (A beast, after all, who often runs over the forest of sand!) The official data by Polaris claim that the Length (in) is 119.

It is worth mentioning that the RZR XP 4 1000 is an upgrade to the RZR XP 1000. By upgrades, I don't mean performance upgrades (although they do have performance upgrades). You can't just rely on data when considering length and size, and you'll never know which one is better unless you drive them back-to-back.

We know a lot about how RZR XP 1000 works, here are some common issues you might meet when driving the RZR XP 1000. (No one can miss the chance of getting issues.)

How to clear codes on RZR XP 1000

When you need to clear the codes on your machine, you might encounter some problems. You need to check the codes on the engine light and go back to check what the ode means on Polaris's official website or check the user manual. If you beat your machine in anger like a school bully, the error code could be caused by something more serious.

If it comes to the point of resetting the ECU, it is the last step to do. You need to reset the ECU; you must completely disconnect the battery. The wiring harness terminals of the RZR are then touched together. This will deplete the capacitors and anything else holding charge in the ECU and is a guaranteed way to reset the Polaris RZR check engine light. (To this step, got to hold your leg up and cross your arms to...... ) Anyway, remember to check if the engine light can't stop lightning.


How to change belt on RZR XP 1000 

When you've driven 2,000 kilometers and seen a lot of wonders, it's impossible not to wear and tear your belt.

The belt is not difficult to put on and take off; it just needs a little "skill." Do it a few times, and you'll become a pro.

Step1: The first thing we need to do is remove the inlet duct, and to do that, we need to remove this brace, and for that, we'll use a handle. (Kemimoto belt changing tool can cover all the tools during the whole belt changing process)

Step2: Next is to remove the clutch cover to the clutch housing. (remove all the screws)

Step3: You need to compress the secondary sheaves to remove the belt. (with tools)

Step4: Next, ensure that the clutch sheet is pushed back and open to remove the belt.

Step5: Next, remove and reinstall your belt and slip it over the primary first influencing.

Step6: At last, reinstall all the components you've removed.

If you're going to be changing your belt anyway, you might as well be using a good one, a Kemimoto belt.
