Picked up a NorthStar yesterday! WOW!

Who knew? I have had 3 RZRs, and a Yamaha YXZ. Last RZR was a turbo. I was looking at rangers after riding in my buddyís and thought I would be disappointed in a few things, but no way! This machine is amazing! Speed didnít let me down, AC and an enclosed cab, MONEY! I love this thing. The ride is nice, nothing like a shock therapy worked RZR, but itís good!

I have a few questions though. How can the rear view mirror be tightened? The thing bounces around like crazy and wonít stay put. Also, I need side view mirrors. After searching the forum I canít come up with anything that doesnít involve drilling holes in the doors, and I donít want to do that. Any suggestions?

Here she is.

Not sure about the mirrors but if you go through water and it starts to heat up you have to shut it down and restart it. The engine cooling fan will shut off when water splashes up on it and it wonít turn back on until you restart it.

Is this something that only happens with the north stars? Iíve never heard of this.

I just got one a couple weeks ago, I found these mirrors on Rocky Mountain that mount right to the cab bolts.

Had a few questions on this since I’ve been interested in a Northstar.

Whats different about the Northstar compared to other 1000xp’s, the AC? I wonder how it handles in rain? Does it warn you its overheating when it happens so you can avoid damage?

I always leave the temp as one of the read outs on the digital dash but yes it will turn on the check engine light if it gets to hot. Your right the only thing different in the northstar is a/c and they com standard with the full cab.

Imagine if HCR made a long travel for these! I have the same machine as you with ridecommand. We love it. Can keeps most of the rain out, have a few drips, sure they could be sealed up with a little time spent. My only complaint compared to my rzr is after a longer ride my back gets sore with the straighter more rigid seat.
