That I even have to do this ,especially at this price point is BEYOND View attachment 3458 ridiculous.
Fyi, it is rubber pond liner I used to cover the holes in the floorpan.
Get some expandable foam as well for the holes in the floor by the seat belt retractors.I like ur pond liner.I bought the dust kit thing,it helped w all the gaps around the doors.the floor not so much. I’m good for up to 45mph before the dust finds new ways in.running half windshield and roof

LOL Folks get so worked up at getting dusty when riding in an open air, off road machine. BEYOND funny, at any price point. :LOL:
Lol. "Beyond funny"
You sound like a krx facebook fanboy.
This is not my first machine and I have very reasonable expectations. Eating dust all day is not one of them.
There is absolutely no reason to have these holes in the floorpan. None whatsoever. It is yet another pisspoor Kawi design on this machine.

My rzr and the krx will go down the same trail at the same speeds with the same tires and the same Superatv flip up in the same vented positions
The krx will be coated with dust and the rzr will have virtually none.

The rubber covers these huge holes and is tucked into the plastics wherever possible.
All holes in this floorpan are covered.
Every single one.

KRX facebook fanboy??? LOL Perhaps you don't realize when someone is actually using your own words? :ROFLMAO: I quote "That I even have to do this ,especially at this price point is BEYOND ridiculous." LOL Your own words.
Sounds like you better stick with riding around in your dust proof rzr. Perhaps off-roading just isn't for you? 😉

Yeah my own words AND I stand by them.
It is beyond ridiculous. There should be no holes in the floorpan.
You said

Dude ,not your best rebuttal.
The holes in the floorpan are simply a poor design. Sounds like you are trying to defend kawi on this . Why?
As for the rzr.
Its faster ,lighter , way better on gas, plastics don't scratch as easily ,the clutch weights and rollers have went 3700 miles and so have the brake pads ,gas gage works ,you can pull axles without smashing the diff housing,haven't broken a driveshaft, no holes in the floorpan ,motor doesn't scream at me all day because of the super low gearing, dont have to replace the door bushings after 15 days ,seat frames don't bend just from sitting in them, doesn't vapor lock from the factory.
Now reports of blown motors with 200 miles on them.
I'm sure I'm missing a few things but these are FACTS ,not opinions.
There is a reason people are selling these machines with little to no miles on them.
Hopefully Kawi follows this and other forums and fixes this machine with the next release.
Burying your head in the sand and pretending these issues don't exist is counterproductive for everyone

What are these holes in the floorpan you are talking about? The drains? Or do you mean the area under the seats? I haven’t been on a real dusty ride yet. Just muddy ones.

So here's my take)...

One, any credibility or respect I have for a person, is instantly gone when their first response to someone's comment is to resort to name calling. Especially so when the comment was stated in a humorous context and not a personal attack. And if you think about it for just a brief moment, it is rather funny that someone will take the time to post a complaint about dirt in an off-road vehicle. It's kind of like complaining that my boat got wet when I took it fishing.

Second, if this is "yet another piss poor Kawi design..." then I have to ask, why did you buy the KRX? If you have prior knowledge of other bad Kawasaki designs then what does that say about your choice of buying a Kawasaki SxS?


Ok, climbing down from my soapbox now...Carry on and have a great day. :)

Why did you buy a KRX then? Plastics don't scratch cuz you have to actually make to the trails before it catches fire! Don't have to replace the door bushing because you're busy replacing all the other bearing an bushing that fail at 15 miles! Every machine has issues but the FACTS are that polaris has MANY more than ANY other manufacture on the planet! THAT IS A FACT! On top of that they barely warranty anything. I see nothing but popo for sale on market place... thousands of them actually. Might have to worry about catching some dust or blowing a motor (which Kawi will cover) but dont have to worry about burning to death along with your passenger or maybe entire family AND Burying your head in the sand and pretending these issues don't exist is counterproductive for everyone

My buddy owns an ATV shop here, and he loves Polaris Rzrs, guess why, it’s because they break constantly, he hates Kawasaki’s because they don’t, and your talk about them not getting dusty is pure bs, we got a bunch of them in our group and they get just as dirty as everyone else, if you prefer Polaris then stay with it and enjoy the repair bills

I like my krx.what this guy is talking about is real.why bash him?there’s no reason these sxs s should be so dusty.I own a Honda pioneer as well and it’s not great either.I agree w what he’s saying about the dust.All the things he complains about regarding the high rpms and not going anywhere are true.I realize this is first year model when I bought mine.almost a year to the day.Thankgoodness I have not had any engine failure s.But I have to admit the best thing I have done to date is remove the primary spring from the clutch.This went against everything in my usual thought process,trusting mechanical factory engineers.However it cured slot of what I’ve been bitching about.Realize I did not buy this machine to go drag racing with.so lighten up maybe down the road we will get a better machine across the board.with all make and models.

. More than a few stop sale (not fire sale :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: ) and stop use bulletins on Polaris for spontaneous combustion issues IIRC. Our department doesn't allow them on trails if the fire danger is greater than stage 1. That's my Friday purse swinging contribution.

I think you missed the whole point here.. you seem to always be late to the convo or oblivious to whats being said.. Bob made a joke and dude got his panties in a twist and called him a fanboy and proceeded to pick apart every issue (some small and some not so small) that kawi has had all while defending the worst made machines on the planet. I am not brand loyal and would personally like an RS!.. but polaris has WAY more issues than KAWI. But to whine about dust while driving and OFFROAD vehicle is a little ridiculous. Thats like bitching about getting muddy while you're going mudding!!

In my experience 1000cc Polaris motors have a 50% failure rate in the first 24 hours of operation. And get just as dusty as the KRX that I replaced one of them with.

so my takeaway:
1) both my KRX and my Yamaha Wolverine have engine braking- especially handy when going down slippery rocky slopes.... not so much in the Polaris we had. freewheel city buddy. i still find it kinda funny a top "upgrade" in a RZR is a conversion to make the clutch operate just like the Japanese units.......
2) my KRX and my Wolverine have been dead-nuts reliable. it sucks to have a toy that always needs "something"..... hence why i sold the Polaris.
3) indeed, complaining about dust in an off-road vehicle is kinda redankulous....
4) the large removable floor drains are actually kinda handy for washing mud out of the interior when needed. pop the covers out, wash the mud down the holes, put the covers back on.
