The Best Polaris RZR XP 1000 Accessories and Mods
Your Polaris RZR UTV has given you some unforgettable memories, but you may be looking to add more power and performance capabilities to your vehicle. To get started, here are a few of the best Polaris RZR XP 1000 accessories and mods.
Your drive belt is the part of your side by side’s machinery that transfers the power of your engine to the wheels on the ground. As a power transmission product, your drive belt is one of the most important parts of your UTV, especially if you are regularly hauling heavy loads. This belt is the part that bears the transfer of driving force. The drive belt is a great place to start when modifying your UTV because you can choose from a wide array of options.
The first thing to consider is the utility—how are you using your side by side? Depending on whether you are racing, hauling, or having fun, you can customize your drive belt to fit your needs. Also, think about the terrain you most often drive on. Dirt, sand, and snow all have slightly variable impacts on how your UTV performs. By modifying your drive belt to fit the terrain or weather conditions you experience most often, you can increase your vehicle performance.
A great accessory to invest in is a passenger harness. Though you may be looking to have fun on your UTV, it is never a bad idea to have extra safety. Passenger harnesses come in all shapes and sizes but they all have one thing in common: they keep you secure. Regardless of the terrain, speed, or path, having a harness will keep you and your passengers in the vehicle. Consider looking at racing harnesses if you will use it when you enter competitions with your UTV or if you are likely to drive for the thrill. Harnesses can come with extra accessories as well, such as memory foam shoulder pads and sternum clips. Tested in extreme conditions, many harnesses will be able to keep up with you while also keeping you safe.
If you are hauling large loads or are driving around other objects, consider installing a front bumper on your Polaris RZR XP 1000. A front bumper will give you peace of mind when driving around other machinery, in a wooded area, or when racing around others. Because it is designed to provide extra protection, you can trust that you and your vehicle have another line of defense in case of any collisions. Some front bumpers even come with a winch mount option, allowing you to install a winch in the future. Similar to cars on the regular roadways, a bumper is both a precaution and a style enhancement that gives your UTV a strong and rugged look.
Windshield Wiper and Wash Kit
Let’s face it. You will probably drive your UTV through mud or snow or some other debris that will fly up when driving. But, with a dirty windshield, it can be very difficult to see clearly and continue driving safely. Installing windshield wipers and the accompanying wash kit allows you to clear debris without getting out of your vehicle. This will increase your terrain options and reduce any visibility hazards when driving. If you are racing your Polaris RZR XP 1000, this could come in handy when driving around other vehicles that are also kicking up dust and mud. Who knows, it might even win you the race!
The exhaust system on your UTV is part of what gives your vehicle so much strength. Modifying your exhaust and adding an exhaust system will increase your power and performance simultaneously. You will experience significant horsepower and torque gains when driving around in your side by side. And, the system includes more than just the exhaust piping. Mufflers allow you to control the sound of your engine so you can drive either in relative quiet or with a gritty roar. One of the key components of the system is the tuner which truly enhances the power of your vehicle by controlling the proper fuel release and timing to maximize the performance.
Speakers with Power Bass
This accessory needs no introduction. A quality sound system in your vehicle can make all the difference in the world, especially when taking passengers on a joy ride or practicing on the racetrack. Speakers and subwoofers installed throughout the frame of the UTV will give you a crisp surround sound experience that will vibrate all along the vehicle. Speakers with power bass are also a great way to play your music when you are not driving, adding ambiance to wherever you are working or camping out.
The brakes on any vehicle are essential to operate it safely. Though all vehicles have brakes, there are ways to install higher quality and faster-acting brakes that will ensure your safety and increase your vehicle’s performance. Some braking pads wear out quickly depending on usage and strain. However, many UTV braking pads live up to racing standards and have a significantly higher wear life. Modifying your brake pads can increase friction and heat stability while still being resistant to mud and sand abrasion.
Steering Wheel and Quick Release Hub
Modifying your steering wheel and the underlying hub can make a large difference in how you experience your UTV. The steering wheel is one of the few components of your vehicle that you continuously interact with while driving. Having a more comfortable grip and more responsive steering can give you increased handling when operating your Polaris RZR XP 1000. You can select from many levels of steering wheel options—some units even provide racing-level precision turning. In the end, it is all about the amount of control you want over your UTV’s movements.
