Blew the motor 0n my new prowler 1000

the bike has 600 miles on it. the dealer told me that it was very low in oil and that was what caused the motor to blow. I last checked the oil at 300miles. Got a new motor on the way( thank god for warranty}. The bike has been in the shop for the past 2 weeks. The bike is now for sale. I just bought a new rzr xp 900 cadillac{voodoo Blue in colour}. These bike are very different form each other. The biggest difference is in the power dept. the rzr has a top speed of 78.8mph on a flat stretch as compared to the Cat of 68mph.
The cat is definitely king when it come to comfort on the trail. you can rip down a rocky shoreline and feel like u r riding a cadillac and the rzr with its stiff suspensoin sure gives ya a beating if you go to quick.

you just need to send your rear shocks to fox and have them do the stage 3 update then dial them in. there is no prowler in this land that can run with an xp in the suspension dept. stock or otherwise!

That's odd because my 2009 XTZ goes 98mph.

Thumbs up

factory speedos can be off 3 to 5 mph easy compared to a gps.every body i have talked to said there 1000 will run 75 mph plus. and you cant compare a 900 rzr to the 1000 a/c like some one in the forum said . the prowler,terx,rhino,ranger,and so on are cross over machines.work and play.the 900, wildcat.full sport.''''

I have 130 rwhp and a tiny bit of clutch work and maybe I raised my rpm limit just a tad. It helps me achieve a higher top end speed.

the speedo on om my cat is bang on up until 60mph then it is aff 2 to 3 mph. THE fastest that my cat has ever gone was 77.9mph down a steephill but still only does 68 on a flat stretch.

now back to the suspensoin, the polaris does not even come close to the plushnes of the prowler on the bumpy trails in the bush or on a rocky shoreline. the cat is so smooth and soft. im sure that if we were to jump sand dunes and launch the bikes several feet in the air, the polaris would be king, but on the bumpy rock filled trails i will take the cat.

I agree it's a much nicer ride even at 80mph!

I will challenge the polaris in the air, dunes, desert, or where ever the popo chooses to challenge me with. LOL
