Well even though Polaris thought the 2011 S was better without the rear roll bars i did not. So with help from my master fabricator friend ChrisC and some roll bar bungs i got from Badride that got changed! First you need the right tools; A big ass welder [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] A tubing notcher [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] then somebody who really knows how to use them![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Everything gets cut and fitted first till its perfect.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] then it gets prepped for welding;[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] then everything gets tack welded ;[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] then fully welded;[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Nice welding Chris!

You are Right..... 431114
I think Polaris really dropped the ball buy removing
these bars on the 2011's . I know it gives you a little more room.
But i been building race car chassis for over 25 years,
and i can tell you these rear bars do help the structural
integrity of the S cage..... yes1

in a crash , i would rather have them than not have them.
if and when ever i get a new model. thay will be added first thing.... 431114

Nice work Chris! 431114

I heard that Polaris did away with the rear section of the cage because it would give the rzr more potential to keep on rolling. But I can tell you first hand that I think its better to have it because I was shotgun with mkrazr when we rolled his straight back on T23. It was very a very smooth straight back flip but it was a hard jolt when we landed on the side. The only damage he suffered was a popped bead on the front tire....The cage protected the rear excellent. I think if he did not have that section of cage it would have done a lot more damage to the rzr...

you can order the rear bar from the polaris dealer, it runs about 160.00 then you need about a foot of 1.75 pipe and 2 bungs. bungs can be ordered from utv crap or bought on ebay for about 20.00 each.

I agree with Clay. I think it is crooked too.

Ask Stealth about the bars. I believe that is why his did not look to bad after rolling about 300 to 400 feet.

No its straight, chris is anal about that stuff, took him a hour on each side lining and fitting. I bet its straighter than a factory one 729242

Looks freakin great!

I totlly agree with you Gunny, this is what happens when a RZR cage does not have them.
