    2016 900 RZR trail

    I went for the first time out on the trail system here in Michigan. No problems with the machine, but wow, I wasn’t expecting the dust! The second day I opted for the 50” or less trails and found I really preferred those trails. A lot more dirt and less sand. I did notice my machine had a strong gas smell from time to time. Had me looking for a leak after the first day. Didn’t find one and didn’t have the smell on the second day.

    I would agree! Had the same problem with a Ranger just moved the vent line a little higher and took care of the smell or use a small fuel filter in the end of the vent line. if you cant move it higher.

    put doors on the buggy will deflect a lot of dust and a back window.

    I use a half windshield, lower doors, and a rear mesh panel that has been working well for keeping the dust down.

    Thanks for the advice, I put on a back window and I have lower doors already, the trail was so dusty everybody was dirty. Had fun anyway!
