Mine was also very jerky until I changed the spring as RD mentioned to do and also removed the one way bearing. Now the throttle is much easier to control and smoother.

Hey Firecat what all did you have to change on the gas pedal? Just the pedal and spring? Or did you have to get the bracket and axel (bolt) also? Looking at them on Country Cat right now. I sure would like to fix the jerky starts and maybe help the control when in the rocks. Thanks

I feel like I typed a response to this already. weird



Anyway I just got a used pedal off ebay. No spring, bolt or others. If I didn't mention it before I also adjusted the throttle cable to remove the slack. Now the it's only a 1/4" movement on the pedal and the cable is tight and moving.

Uh oh! Last night I was turning a tight corner in the Prowler and heard a loud pop from the rear end. Lost my posi, only the left rear tire spins. Looks like tear down time! Taking the RZR to Wisconsin on Friday for some trail riding, was gonna let a buddy borrow the Prowler, but now, it will stay home. Rats!

Now you got a turf saver! LOL Have not heard of any locked rear failures, but they do take a beating! Be interesting to see what failed!

I got lucky! On a quick inspection found the right rear CV shaft spun in the outer cv joint. I have a spare shaft so no cost. And I can try my new handy dandy bearing packer on the wheel bearing while its apart.

Working on a new upgrade for the Prowler. Building a fiberglass roof which will hold 4 speakers, amp, stereo, and a couple of gauges. So far I have the top shell done and have mocked up the speaker and stereo locations. Hoping to start glassing some more this weekend. Once I have it complete, I'll post some photos.


I can tell you this, the 14 HDX roof is a pain due to the curves that it has and lack of side bars.

Do it yourself stuff is the best! Owning a Prowler encourages innovation! Lack of aftermarket is a blessing, and a curse! LOL

That is very true. There were basically two options for roofs. A metal or plastic looking one and neither provided a way to mount my stereo to it. So, I decided to move forward with creating one. I haven't worked with fiberglass since I was 16 and filling in a hole on my old truck. So not real sure how it will turn out, but hopefully good. If I like it, I'll post some photos of the build and the finished product.
