I know absolutely nothing about your video, but I know from practical experience that that burn isn't going to happen without someone pouring 5 (or more) gallons of gasoline on the unit.

I think you have take the video for what it is. Obviously some thing like a fuel injection line came loose at 40 psi it can spray a lot of fuel that is atomized and it could burn as seen. I have personally seen a artic cat burn to the ground at butter cup a few years back. Same result.

I'm not a huge RZR fan, but I feel sorry for anyone who's toy catches on fire and burns to the ground

2008 Rhino SE 700 - gone to a new home - it was a hell of a fun machine

That video has been doctored, not real.
Maybe a RZR passed this OP and he is trying to get even.

If you blow up the video to full size and pause it at about 11 seconds you can make out a trail of oil next to the left wheel tracks,,,,

look at post #11 in the link below

glad he got a new one, the proshop has a new xp in it, the guy took it out, ran it for a while then the rear gearbox blew up!...they pulled it apart,polaris shipped it with zero gear oil....called Polaris and they said to go call Spicer as they are the guys who make it, so now the customer is pissing back n forth from Polaris and the dealer to spicer and everybody is blaming the other person and knowbody will warranty it for the customer!...lmao...funny stuff.

not just a Polaris thing. Can Am recalled the Commander due to fire risk and I have a friend that had his go up. Luckily he was able to get it under control.

Polaris's customer service when it comes to warranty work is a joke. A friend of ours had a brand new XP that backfired up through the intake and burned a small hole in the paper air filter, which let in lots of sand and destroyed the motor. Polaris refused to warranty the motor so he was out a good deal of money on a brand new machine.

They have so much power, that they just have to release the energy heat source, so that just maybe normal. I think that it is time for a Budweiser, or maybe two...........
So far my 900 XP has not burn't, but it sure does smoke everything that it races..........
