dont waste your time, the cost of the conversion and the cost of a doner rhino just isn't worth the money or all the time for the amount of gains you get, go by a rzr xp900 for like $280 a month and be duning this weekend with more travel than any rhino and more power than that little rotax 800 conversion....

I agree, if you dont care about having back seats or the extra width get an xp 900. I just heard of someone financing one for 12 years... $150 a month... He will probably have it totaled before it is half paid off lol..

Ya, just got off the polaris forum, the xp900 problem page of their forum is 35 pages long and full of problems,blown up motors,broken transmissions,leaking fluids,burning firewalls,electrical no starts etc....looks like polaris is making another product that the aftermarket shops and suppliers will love and have to fix.........my buddy with his new rzr 4 seater has 500 miles on it and all the suspension bushings are shot and he's got the whole thing apart replacing them....what a joke...their quality sucks...

Maybe he "Lost" it on purpose. After something goes flying off a trailer like that I wouldn't pay anyone anything for the scrap heap that's left in all reality, you don't have a clue how much internal damage to other parts may be present, cracked engine block, etc.

That adds up to $21,600 (plus whatever he put down) for a Rzr. Now you're talking enough $$ to buy a good used 5 seat long travel rail. I wonder how many monthly payment checks he writes before his new toy becomes "the boat anchor out in the garage".

my buddy had to have the first xp900 in our area, after taxes and a 5 year warrenty, he paid $22,000 dollars. I couldnt believe it. Dont get me wrong its a nasty beast but if and when i do a 800 swap with some goodies, i shuold be beating him.

An 800 with goodies will not beat an XP, you will need 900 plus cc's to beat one. Believe me it isn't cheap but sure feels good.
