Rzr xp 900.. Anything I need to know?

I'm going with a few friends. We're all approved. And all 4 of us are buying new xp900s were going to buy all 4 at the same time and try and work the price down, plus we have personal loans so we will be taking cash.
Anything we need to know about buying them?
I've herd to get the Polaris warranty and I've also herd to get the rpm warranty which is better?
Anyone have experience actually using the warranty?
I see a lot of broken shafts in videos. Which are the best upgrades?
Any more info would help. I had a rhino 800 but never a rzr. In fact the first time I drove one was last week so I'm still a noob.

Dealers give two shits about paying cash, in fact they make more money if you finance. Buy the Polaris warranty, and there is room to negotiate on that. It's another money maker for the dealer, so shop around and use that to your leverage. Axles are a dime a dozen, pick one and order it. Rzrforum.net are a bunch of assholes, say one bad thing about a rzr or Polaris and they ban you.

correct.

I bought our 2011 RZR XP 900 white lightning from them. Got the best deal from them by far. Never needed the warranty but I bought it anyways.

I kept our 2011 XP 900 all stock and never had a problem. IT was awesome. The 12+ XPs have different suspension and they got rid of the dry sump system. If you get a warranty go with Polaris. Dont overpay (4 year $700) I never had an issue with ours.



Also dont let someone tell you cant get an XP in the bed of a truck....

The Polaris warranty is a no brainer; don't use it and they refund it after the 3.5 years.

Let me qualify that, ours was on an 800RZR.

So prior to the 2012 model year they had a dry sump oil system? Why would the ditch it an go wet sump?

Dont let anyone tell you that your RZR will be a breeze to street legal.
It is not always the case. Many SOS's will require you to retitle it and have a new vin number assigned (assembled truck.)
Forcing you to pay out the wazoo and to deal with the state. Not to mention having to carry full coverage insurance if you have a loan on it.

It is a breeze to make street legal, the problem is people at the SOS don't know what the hell they are doing, so if you get a hard time at one, pack it up and head to the next. The law changed about geting a new VIN. When I did mine you had to get a new VIN, when trailrail did his and few months later they were able to use the stock VIN. It will have to be retitled either way. And lets say they do make you get a new VIN, that wasn't a big deal. The lady from the State met me at my work, put the sticker on and handed me my new title. It took all of four minutes. Total cost for the paperwork was cheap, like $15 if I remember. The only thing I had to pay for was a title fee.
