I still don't know how in the world they could MSRP this for $1300 more than a Teryx Sport.

But meanwhile all of my friends that own RZR's, including my folks, are always having issues with their rides. I finally decided to go with the Rhino after a year of watching these guys constantly fix something or have it in the shop. I'll take boxy and dependable any day of the week!

What I love most about the Rhino is how much personality you can put into one. As I see other SxS models they all look the same and that is just boring.

What I am still trying to figure out is who needs all of this "over performance" for what most people use a Rhino for (or SxS for that matter) in the first place. Is someone really needing to go 80 in a mud bog? :fingersx:

I think that's one of those idea's that sounds great before you do it, but upon entering that point of no return, you realize you have had too much beer and have been in the sun way too long, and after the deed is done you vow to never be this foolish again.... and then open another beer....

80 might be a slight overkill!! Desert, dunes, trails.. The rhino is underpowered for anything but flat land. If you ride in sand you will definitley see the power problems with the rhino. To get 80 out of a rhino, it would need a 1000cc and turbo charged! As far as beer and driving is concerned. You can get killed with too much beer on a 50cc dirt bike. If people are not smart enough to do the right thing when they drink too much then it is their own damn fault and should be welcomed to the 6' under club.

What does "need" have to do with anything? No one "needs" a rhino in the first place. You can see the trails better if you walk them. The rhino is underpowered, more power would help in thick mud, climbing hills, turning bigger tires, ect.

My friend's 9 month old Razor, with 900 miles on it, dealer maintained, just punched a hole in the case from the inside around the rear diff area. $650 just to pull the engine assembly to troubleshoot what caused it.

He just found out that the engine/transmission/diff assembly uses 5 different oil reservoirs, 4 different oils. Yikes. Wonder what happens if the tech accidentally mixes up the oils?

Transmission Oil: Main Gearcase

Rear Gearcase Oil:

Engine Oil:
2008: Premium 4-Cycle Synthetic OW-40
2009: Premium 4-Cycle Synthetic 2W-50
