This photo is of my brothers 2015 Polaris RZR 900 that caught fire June 2016. It was gone in three minutes nearly causing a seconday wildland fire.

They knew of the problems and kept silent until they got busted. Wonder of their defective roll bars killed anyone?

Wow I had no idea they had a ongoing issue like this. I seriously looked at a RZR before I bought my commander. So is there a fuel system defect or what is causing these fires?

Makes you wonder how the engineers missed this? And if they did miss this how good of a engineer could they actually be? Really calls into question the future of Polaris.

Seems it might be pretty easy to miss a detail like that. Polaris might have 100 Mec engineers working for them.... Living not all that far from Minnesota, we've meet a few here and there, spoken to a few on the phone as well when we had grief with our P machine. On a Skandic we had, if you filled the tank to the top, some would go out its tank breather when you sat on its seat.... Go figure, no manufacture has a perfect record.....
