EVO POWERSPORTS RZR XP 1000 MAGNUM EXHAUST

By the staff of Dirt Wheels EVO POWERSPORTS RZR XP 1000 MAGNUM EXHAUST We haven’t tested many exhaust systems for normally aspirated UTVs like the Polaris RZR XP 1000. Despite the fact that the XP 1000 is a best seller and the 1000cc UTV classes are almost always the largest number of entries at races, they are somewhat ignored by aftermarket companies. We selected an Evo Powersports slip-on muffler called a Magnum. CONSTRUCTION AND INSTALL It is a stainless steel muffler with packing that should never need…

Grounded 4 RZR Trailing Arms and Radius Rods

Besides the drive belt, the easiest part to damage or break on a RZR XP 1000 is the rear radius rods. Drive extra hard into a square-edged berm or land sideways on one rear tire, and one or more radius rods can fail. When this happens, it could also take out the entire trailing arm, rear shock and axle. To prevent this failure, be gentle on those rear corners and strengthen your components. If it’s too late and you have already ruined a corner, then you should probably consider new trailing arms, as well as stronger radius…

POLARIS RZR XP 1000 4 PRE-RUNNER

Off-road race teams typically use a vehicle other than their race car to pre-run racecourses prior to a specific event. This gives them a chance to see the course for the first time and make GPS notes of danger areas and pit-stop locations all without putting extra miles on the race car. Some teams spend anywhere from $50,000 to $500,000 on these vehicles. Many of these machines are long-wheelbase buggies or trucks and have three seats, so all occupants have a clear view out of the windshield. MONEY WELL-SPENT…

POLARIS RZRS WIN MINT 400 PRO PRODUCTION CLASSES

The Mint 400 is a race that has history, fame, and notoriety. Its first run was 1967, and then it disappeared in 1988 for 20 years, and then was resurrected in 2008. In 2012 the Mint 400 opened up a class for UTVs. The Polaris-supported Lonestar RZR XP1000 Turbo car of Brandon Sims and Justin Krause was top UTV overall at 18th racing against high-dollar trucks and buggies. Their time was within an hour of the overall four-wheel winner's time. Justin Lambert and Mitchell Alsup teamed up in the naturally aspirated Cognito…

"Our racers continue to prove the made-in-the-USA ITP UltraCross R Spec tire is the choice for serious desert racing and recreation. Not only did we win…

PRODUCT TEST: S&B Particle Separator

No one likes to constantly replace or clean a reusable air filter after every other big ride. Especially when it comes to riding in the sand or desert, changing filters is a constant need. S&B Filters designed a new air-filtration system called a Particle Separator, with technology derived from military helicopters. To put it simply, this $399 system sucks in dust and pushes it back out, allowing clean air to reach your air filter. HOW IT WORKS S&B’s patent-pending design that is currently for the Polaris RZR…
