I know that no one has a RZR yet but for the guys who are planning on getting the first ones. From what you see so far, what do you think you will be looking for to add to your new RZR. We will have many items available by the time the dealers get them but we want to see what people want.

I had posted this before.
If you can get this at a beeter price let me know.

Just got back from dealer, place order on the
Rock Slider Nerf Bars
Pre-Runner Front Bumper
Pre-Runner Rear Bumper
Rally Light Bar
I need lights W like the ones on the brocher 100W each.
Holding on the rear tire holder - need bolt pattern, want to see it's the same as the one on the Ranger 07 700XP

1) A backup baterry system (less battery) bracketed and incl. tray; built to Optima spec. with marine harware/electronics/switch.

2) A well thought out 'rock rail' system that maybe extended further fore or aft with added protection/integration with other designs hard-piped designs.

3) Padded/rgonomic seat covers if they don't approach the cost of simply throwing in the 'good seats'

4) Plug and play multi-mount winch kit (complete/well engineered/braced

5) My crazy fuel pack idea mentioned earlier: (I like switching these around for backup on different machines)
"...Looking at picture #5...somebody needs to come up with this fuel cell molded into the indented shape of a razr bed and make some money. Nice flat heavy duty surface all the way across; low cg; snaps in and out....perfect. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4630456
...or wait for this: http://www.atvriders.com/atvnews/ims2007rangerrzrfuelsystem.html ..."

6) A console box no less worthy than the Tuffy one BRP introduced

7) Suspension components that are state of the art (regardless of cost) and maybe a 'quick swap' shock kit that is less so but still top notch.

8) A flexible material roof that doesn't flap in the wind and maybe has your logo stitched on the inside.

9) The netting and spare tire integration that immediately change the look of it

10) A good quality half-windshield that doesn't look like it was scabbed on there.

11) A top-of-the-line steering stabilizer if this is what they run in these race series(?)

12) Well thought out underbody protection in even spot specific choices

13) Ergonomically correct attachment point for our 4 and 5 point safety harnesses with other brackets integrated for future purchase.

14) If there's a slight cant in our sitting stance while either driving or riding with our feet not necessarily able to slide sideways; fix this with more padded yet firm support in the cab around the elbow area for more of a lounging feel and push back up support when you get serious about

15) We all love guages

16) The new side netting that I've seen looks like what you'd expect and nothing special (big focal point)

17) A machine specific maintenance tool/parts kit

18) Figure out how to put a pull start on this big v-twin and still be man (or woman) enough to pull it...

Thanks for asking!

WOW !! My only pathetic thought would be fender flares. Going to need some mud protection after the larger tires and wheels are installed....which we all KNOW will be first on our list !!

Good point!... probably the first thing I bought last time and was very glad that I did.
I got to thinking about the console and would scratch this; as I don't know if some kind of soft inner supported bag turned sideways in this area is better with so little space between the two riders(reach down and snap/snatch it in or out).

If one of these ideas flies...I want a buck fifty.

Front and rear bumpers, Winch mount, quick removable soft top, rear view mirror, rock rails that do not extend out too far, and possibly fender flares. Thanks for asking.

Some kind of assurance that you guys can offer a more functional spare tire carrier than Polaris which integrates more accessories into the framework and makes best use of the small area that this tire will dominate.(probably the #1 item for me right now; as I'm not running without a spare and I'm not certain that the accessory market understands our immediate need for this with a relatively small cargo box).

I'm just about ready to order this tire carrier pretty much sight unseen if nobody other than Polaris has figured this to be a 'required' initial release item.

We need the same parts that you will fab onto your race Rzrs packaged as a set; complete with photo-equipped instructions as to where we need to weld them. More importantly, this product requires the continual updating needed to stay competitive in the race circuit over time.(ie. neither of us ending up with the lower frame mess we all just witnessed in the CORR race).

Somebody out there is finally going to get 'smart' with the introduction of this needed product by looking at it this way...you get into our pockets just as many times as it takes to get this design right; with no argument from any of us out here whatsoever when you do so (question: have you guys stumbled across a relatively high profit-margin product yet that allows you to do this?).

I second the lock and ride cooler!! Maybe some rock rails that do not stick out so far and protect the fragile plastic rockers. Need front and rear bumpers also.

My RZR arrives in early June.

I just had an opportunity to look the rigs over at the Terrible's Town 250 desert race this weekend.

Here are the projects in order:

* Full roll cage that ties into new front and rear bumpers as well as rock rails at each side. The cage will be able to hold a fuel cell, spare tire and facilitate a front winch mount. If the cell is not in, it will have room for a cooler.

Here is my cage and bumper work on my Rhino.


* Aluminum, sheet metal roof.
* Opening 3/4 doors with aluminum skin.
* 5 point harnesses.
* Long travel suspension.

I would love to see more performance parts for it. I am gonna get a new RZR in a couple of months and hopefully by then they will have more performance for them. I would like to have one built just for racing.

Thanks Josh
