2011 Polaris RZR 4 800 Robby Gordon Edition SxS / UTV Review

After having the RZR 4 800 for a while and giving it quite a bit of abuse, we did encounter one issue with it when the CVT belt got to hot and came loose, but that was a very easy fix.

The CVT belt on the Polaris RZR 4 is very easy to get to & is quick to change, but we do recommend always keeping an extra belt with you along with tools to change it on any long rides
To swap out the CVT Belt, all you need is a screw driver, a ¾” wrench, a 3/8” wrench and a crescent wrench. “It was pretty easy to change out. You just take the back seat and bar out, take off the plastic cover underneath the seat, take off the belt cover and it’s right there. It only took us about 15 minutes to change the belt,” explained Baron.

“There’s plenty of storage in the RZR for tools and what not, so I would definitely recommend keeping a spare belt on hand and the tools to fix it just in case you’re out in the middle of nowhere and need to change it,” Baron added.

The Polaris RZR 4 800 has plenty of room for storage. Up front the RZR 4 features a large water tight storage compartment great for storing tools. On the rear the RZR 4 has a 22 in. x 42 in. bed and can carrying 300 lb. (136.1 kg.)

Overall the Polaris RZR 4 800 was a huge hit with Baron, as well as his family and his friends and after putting over 600 miles on this machine we are pleased to say that the CVT belt was the only issue we encountered. The reliability and quality of this machine is excellent. We feel that the RZR 4 800 is a great machine that is highly enjoyable for the whole family and groups and we cannot wait to see if Polaris comes out with a big bore version in the future, but until then, we will have plenty of fun with the one we have.
