Well the overflow reservoir seemed to help along with cleaning the radiator. Thanks again Paxx for the ebay item. I took my air compressor and blew out the fins as much as possible which surprisingly did more than water. Went on about a 50 mile run through thick sugar sand along with some thick mud and never got above 200 while running.


The only problem that occurred was the gear selector was erroring making it impossible to be in low range and reverse. We cleaned out the connector best we could in the woods and added a couple of zip ties. Worked all weekend.


I plan on pulling the connector out this week and cleaning it with some electronics cleaner which hopefully fixes it rather than having to by a new part.

Wondering if you found the issue with the gear selector on your machine? That could be a serious bummer not to have reverse!!!!!!

It actually is still working with the Zip ties however, I ordered a new selector which just came in yesterday.

That's great. Wouldn't want you to have to hike out from somewhere cause you couldn't back it out of something!!!!

That was a fear, especially on some of the trails we were riding on. However, the cat made it home and my buddy with the RZR snapped a drive shaft. Certainly not enough power on the 700 to do that.

That's great that you had no issues but a bummer for your buddy!! May not have the power in a 700 to snap an AC drive shaft but it makes me wonder how (non)beefy the drive shaft is on the RZR...... I think of when Dodge 1st started putting the Cummins in their trucks that they had that very same problem with drive shafts being twisted and u-joints being snapped because they were not beefy enough to handle the torque and power....... sooooo.......... Did ya tow him out?

He managed to get stuck in the worst mud hole and then tried winching himself from a tree which snapped his winch rope 3 times. I hooked up to him and we double pulled with the winches with no movement. The thing with an RZR Highlifter is the winch location. They are mounted directly to the bumper and you should see a bumper flex when you put a 4500 lbs winch to it. We ended up flagging a Jeep on about 44's to come and snatch him out.

You're not kidding. I was thinking, man how are we gonna get this thing out of here. The great thing about many of the places we ride is the abundance of people that are typically out and about and ready to lend a hand.
