What accessories to buy first
« on: May 27, 2017, 01:44:04 AM »
Hello everyone!

I will be purchasing a new 2017 zforce 800 trail in the next few wks as soon as my dealer can get in an orange one lol.  I was just wondering what i should get first for it and what accessories places are good to buy from.  I already have a uni filter on the way. I want to get the rodin doors soon as well. In tje winter  i know i would want a full front and rear windshield.  Idk if i want or need the half windshield for summer but any suggestions  would help. I found one on ebay for only $130. Also do you know of anyone selling a snorkle kit or does everyone else make theres? Im not going to deep muddin, but i dont like the air intake location or the belt exaust or whatever that is on the rear by the right tire by the exaust. Also how are the stock lights, does any led bulbs fit into the projector housings? Or just go with a light bar? What would be a good one, idk if the cheap ones on ebay and stuff are anygood?  Also i have ran  27" itp mudlite xtrs on my last 3 atvs, and loved them, but know it took away some power from them and i put a clutch kit in my sportsman 850 to help give the low end back,  any tire reccomendions?  Possibly without the need to recluch.  Also what oil and filter is everyone running?

Thanks everyone! I hope everyone  is having fun riding  this memorial day weekend! So jealous

When buying a windshield get a good one. I spent 350 on a scratch resistant polycarbonate and it's worth it. Cheap ones will scratch and get ruined easily. As far as the rear windshield I just made a post about making a cheap one I bought clear vinyl and stitched it to the cargo net and hung it up on the roll cage and it looks good I'll put a photo of it on the bottom. No snorkel kits yet some people have made some. But with front and back windshield that will help dust from getting in the filter. Stock lights are good but always best to get a light bar. Go on Amazon and there are tons for 40-50 bucks. They work great and out riding you could hit the light off anything and break it so it's not worth spending hundreds of dollars one cause it's a little brighter and break it a week later. Don't go to big cause it can us more juice than the machine can produce. 32" are good for these. Serra the light bars have adjustable mounts and some people have bolted the bar right into the bolts that hold the roof on. As far as tires the stock tires are very good and have given me no isssues I'd say leave them and wait till you need a new set to look into somthing else but because it is a trail model there's not a lot of room for bigger tires. One other suggestion would be 1.5" spacers when your not in a 50" or less trail. Give you a better handling ride and give you more room for bigger tires

 They make a snorkel kit donations posted it in here somewhere but i think it's pricey.  Everyone asks what they can run without clutching.  Eden on the stock tires you should clutch it.  It's pretty simple, don't need to buy new springs or even sliders.  Go with a c1 and you will be able too run 27s or 28s. Depending on how you like to ride you might want to lift it.  I ride a lot of woods and rocks logs trailblazing. So i have a 2 inch bracket loft and 29 inch tires.  Clutch is at b2 with 23g dr pulley sliders and still do 66mph so I'm happy.  I don't run a windshield and would rather not especially in summer.  Ill take goggles rather than be really hot in the cab.  If i rode a lot in winter i would have a fully enclosed set up that i would remove in the summer.  Check all your suspension and caliper bolts.  Once broken in check to make sure you are getting full throttle pedal to the floor,  some cone with a stop. I run factory oil filter for warranty purpose and rotellka t6 oil

I've had a full windshield on a Prowler, and have a half windshield on the Zforce.  I must say, I prefer the half windshield.  You get some open air, and yet none of the wind hits you in the face.  Deflector angle on the top does a great job of redirecting the wind.  Plus, it wasn't as much money.
