Hello, everyone! Today we’re going to show you how easy it is to install SuperATV’s Heavy-Duty Tube Rock Sliders on a Polaris RZR Trail S 1000 in just two (long) steps! Let’s get started.
The first thing you’ll do is locate your drill. You want to equip a drill bit that’s at least 10.5 mm. We will use hardware that’s at least 10mm, so we have to have space to install it. I’m using an 11 mm drill bit.
Apply a little cutting oil on the drill bit. Then you’ll drill directly through the hole. It’s important to keep the drill bit level the entire time. It’s also important to keep the drill bit cool, so don’t be afraid to add more cutting oil for lubrication.
Once you’ve drilled the hole through, check that the bolt will fit. Slide it through the back of the hole to check for size and angle. Our bolt slides through straight, so this hole is done.
Now you’re ready to start drilling the next hole. You’ll use the same process as the first time. Once you’ve drilled the hole, do the same checks as before. Make sure the bolt goes through the hole straight. Ours is good to go.
Before you can install the nerf bar, you have to remove the T40 Torx hardware next to the spots where you just drilled. There should be 3, but it’s not unusual if your machine has lost one. They can fall out after the machine has been on the road. We will use these again, so set them aside.
You’ll take two bolts, two washers, and two lock washers. Slide a lock washer onto both bolts, followed by a standard washer.
Once you’ve done that, slide the bolts through the holes you just drilled. You don’t want to insert them all the way through. Just get the end of the bolt to the end of the hole and let them hang.
Now we’ll install the nerf bar. Pick it up and align it with the holes you drilled. Use one hand to guide the bolt into the nerf bar and finger tighten it. Once you’ve done that, do the same thing with the other bolt at the rear.
Once you’ve got both bolts started, you’ll need a wrench to tighten them completely.
After you’ve tightened both the front and rear bolts, you’ll reinstall the T40 hardware you removed earlier. We removed them so that the plastic would have room to flex as we installed the nerf bar. Once the nerf bar is installed, you’re good to put them back in place.
Once you’ve completed one nerf bar, you’ll repeat the same steps on the opposite side of the machine to install the other one.
That’s all there is to installing SuperATV’s Nerf Bars on the Polaris RZR Trail S 1000. Make sure you check out our other awesome Trail S 1000 accessories. We’ll see you on the trail!
