The RZR in this car model of Polaris signifies “Razor” (Razor sharp side-by-side). It is also called the Evil twin of Polaris Ranger which is one of the most popular cars of Polaris. This newly introduced Polaris RZR is a small vehicle that is also light in weight. It performs much faster compared to any of the side-by-side vehicles. Its twin-cylinder 800 EFI engine provides it with a lot of power, which makes it unique to any of its preceding models. However, can Polaris RZR speed limiter removal enhance its performance levels? 

Yes, when it comes to the removal of the speed limiter (i.e. in a Polaris RZR), it can enhance the overall vehicle’s speed. The speed limiter (basically) is a feature related to safety, which is designed so it can limit the vehicle’s speed to a range that is legal and safe.

Speed Limiter In Polaris RZR – All You Need To Know

Polaris RZR is a sports side-by-side vehicle produced by the Polaris industry. It’s one of the best UTVs for adventures, which include mud bogging, rock crawling, dune riding, trail exploring, and more.

It is the other name for an adrenaline rush. This gasoline-operated vehicle ranges from 2 seater to 4 seater type. It has its own engine design unique to its range of vehicles only. 

There are certain vehicles whose speed limiter works for each gear specifically and in others one single speed limiter works for all of the gears. With Polaris RZR, you get advanced adjustable speed limit settings.

The system can be easily accessed by anyone. This enables adults to supervise the speed of the vehicle. Even if the customer wants to remove this speed limiter system the dealer can not do so.

But if you really want to remove the speed limiter for polaris rzr, here is the solution.

What’s The Need To Remove The Speed Limiter In Polaris RZR?

As far as I know, there are two different types of speed limiters in vehicles. I come across both these types of speed limiters, when I work in my garage.

  • The first one is the adjustable type. It can be paid for as well as installed previously. The user can set his or her own speed limit in this. If the car goes beyond the maximum point it would slow down, stop, or rather won’t cross the limit.
  • Another type of speed limiter is linked with cameras and sensors. What it does is check its surroundings and intelligently control the speed.

Most of the vehicles have their speed limit button around the steering wheel or on indicator stalks. There is no particular need to remove a speed limiter that is manually operated because you can extend the speed limit.

But when it comes to pre-installed speed limiter cars like some models of Polaris RZR, it is completely a matter of choice whether or not to remove the speed limiter.

Yesterday I was riding my UTV through hills, and I got little fuel out there in UTV. Then I adjusted the speed of the UTV and then got to the next stop, where I refueled it.

I have reasons to remove the speed limiter, but if you have a good working polaris then it is not necessary to remove the speed limter.

Most people remove the speed limiter to raise the performance of their car and engine performance. But it will be a waste to use a car every day. It is a car that you can find on racing tracks and off-roading sites. Thus, these cars need more engine work and high performance.

  • Many Polaris RZR owners prefer to remove the speed limiter because the limiter may cause problems to their speed and performance on the tracks and adventures. They do so to alter a vehicle’s engine control unit (ECU) so the vehicle isn’t held back by any OEM parameters.
  • Another reason behind speed limiter removal is the economy. I do it for having a control of speed of vehicle and fuel economy. In difficult situations you can optimize the speed of your polaris rzr and get fuel saved.
