RZR Air intake Issues. Need Advice

I am looking into a new 08 RZR. I have seen on this and other forums there is an issue with the air filter set up. Is this a simple use a Uni or K&N filter to stop it thing or is this a bigger issue? I want to figure it out before I buy it. Dust, water and mud are definetly a facter here in Michigan and if I am going to kill a RZR I will just stick with my Rhino. Any information would be appreciated.

Well I have had no issue at all. I ride in dust, water, and mud. And I still wouldn't buy a rhino,lol. Just kidding you should not use bad words like that here.... I know some of the RZR had the filter put on wrong and allowed them to get dirt into the intake. I have not heard enough horror stories to scare me yet.

Re: RZR Air intake Issues. Need Advice

A friend of mine has a RZR and they have not really had issues either. He snorkeled his for the deep stuff but has had nothing get into the air box even before.
As for the "R" word.....for technicle trail riding (low speed,rocks,logs,mud and such) between the two machines with similar lifts and same size/brand tires it is a draw. The RZR excells when we get in open areas where the top speed and quickness comes into play. I would be changing only because it will fit in the Toy hauler along with the Wifes XP. The Rhino will not. Also I will not lie the power is a huge bonus. R's are difficulty and costly to get good reliable power out of once you reach a certain point...I have reached that point.

I was just giving you a little grief. I have been in both and both do well. I do think the RZR has a smoother ride over rough terrain, and then the speed now that is the fun part. My last trail ride I was having to slow down for one of the members on here. I am sure he will chime in soon.

Re: RZR Air intake Issues. Need Advice

I know you were and its all good! I like the bantering on brands. I do like the power of the RZR and it does ride better than a stock RHino. My Rhino has a 3" Xtreme lift that repositions the shocks to a more verticle mount. Made a huge difference in the ride. I also added Progressive shocks. I have like $14500 into my Rhino and the wife has talked me into listing it on eBay by Monday of next week. Then i will be starting the entire build process again with an RZR. We make the side by sides 100% dot legal for Michigan because it opens up a ton of riding to us. It is a lot of work to go through and add all the DOT stuff along with the other goodies that will make it a good trail runner in my mind but it is a lot fun as well. I really enjoy doing it. If you know anyone looking for a Rhino send them my way! LOL!
