My 02 400ex still has the original tires on it, and needless to say, they are pretty bald.

I live close to a lake and river, so winter riding is a must!

Since Christmas took a nice chunk of my bank account, I am trying to hold off on buying new tires for now.

But bald tires and snow/ice do NOT mix.

I decided to buy 2 packs of hex head bolts to make some cheap studs.

They worked surprisingly well, but I will still need some new rubber VERY soon haha.

just added my 12 volt acc plug last night, very easy to install. I have a few questions about the harness plug, it has a few extra plugs coming out of it. I wonder I a can pull power from it?

This weekend I got 420 disc brakes mounted on my neighbor's 350 Rancher (they work great) and put a new ignition switch on my father in law's Rubicon.

Waiting on a part to finish the BRGR on my buddy's Rincon and then I'll be ready to put his motor back together.

Blew the lower steering stem bearing...

And not just a little, I mean, it's gone haha.

There was always a little up and down play since I bought it, but I guess all the rough snow and lake riding really put it to work.

I heard just a couple of days ago that the rzr 800 engine is very unforgiving and blows up a lot ,any truth to that -------- sounds like a 30 ft /30 second warranty job = LOL

From my reading on rzrforums (I'm a member there because I have a 900. Rebelrzrrider) the only trouble with the old 800 motor was the intake and air box and the tube popping off and sucking dust. That's what I've read.

rzr 800 motor is simply the same engine as the 600/700/800 sportsman engines just with a little different internal plumbing.

chase is right, a bad bad design on the intake that is prone to working loose at the throttle body causes it to injest dust making for a short lived motor. the rzr 570 had this problem as well in 2013 with a 2 piece intake design.

combine that with a sump that only holds less then 2 qts of oil and a high revving right foot they fail often.

this one I purchased for myself so the intake will be replaced with a UMP kit. when used in conjunction with that intake they are good long lasting motors. I service 7 of these 800's no engine issues once you replace the intake.
yes this is a Honda forum, however, you should see the beating these rzr's take, about the only maintenance needed is ball joints and bushings. but that's to be expected when you take a 900 lb. machine loaded with 2 people and all their gear and act like its a baja rig.
