Do you like getting hung up on trees? I sure don’t. That’s why we made these heavy-duty tree kickers for the Polaris RZR XP 1000, and we’re going to show you how to install them.
First, you’ll remove all the contents of your packaging and lay it out on the table. We have all of our hardware and our kicker laid out.
[00:45] First, I want to drill the frame. In the kit, you’ll see a drill guide. This will line up with this hole here, as well as this one.
Next, we’ll remove the T40 screw, which is right here. We’ll take the drill guide, lay it up, start our hardware, and tighten it.
[01:18] After that, we’ll get a 7/16 drill bit and drill straight through it. Then, you’ll remove the drill guide and leave this factory hardware out. With our kickers, we send hardware that’ll go in place of the factory hardware.
Now, we’ll repeat the same steps with this hole. Make sure you remove all three T40s for the tree kickers.
[01:51] Next, we’ll grab our alignment stud and curved washer. It’ll go like this. We’ll slide the hardware through this hole. This needs to be facing toward the inside of the machine. After that, we’ll take our lock washer and our nut. We’ll thread the nut on and tighten it down completely.
The biggest thing you want to make sure of is that this curved washer stays completely straight up and down. It needs to be oriented like this the whole time. For example, if it changes, it won’t line up correctly. I like to keep my hands on this and make sure it doesn’t move. After it’s nice and tight, it’ll want to move.
[02:41] Next, we’ll grab our two U-bolts and our right-side mount because we’re working on the passenger side.
Then we’ll slide our mount up here and rotate it. After that, slide the U-bolts through for the top and bottom locations. Finally, you’ll spin it around to where it’ll just sit here.
[03:07] We’ll grab our four Nyloc nuts that are included in the hardware kit and start them.
Finally, it’s time to install the tree kicker. We’ll grab one of our long M10 bolts and slide it through. After that, we’ll take our curved washer and slide it like that.
[03:37] Next, we’ll grab our kicker and line it up. We’ll start our hardware on this one. So, we’ll do the same thing here. We’ll slide our bolt through and put our curved washer on the bolt. Make sure it sits well on the frame. Once it’s lined up, we’ll start our nut. You will have to manipulate this tree kicker around to get everything lined up.
Then we’ll grab our small M10 hardware, flat washer, and lock washer. The lock washer goes on first, and then the flat washer. As an extra precaution, I like to put a little bit of blue Loctite on this hardware.
[04:43] We’ll get our mount lined up with the kicker. I like to rotate this and get it lined up. You want to thread your hardware right into the tree kicker.
Now, we’ll go through and start tightening all of our hardware. We’ll completely tighten the bolt that secures our bracket to our kicker. Next, we’ll fully tighten our U-bolts. I like to tighten them evenly. Once your tree kicker is fully tightened, grab your Allen screws out of the hardware kit and thread them into the factory location.
Finally, you’ll repeat all these same steps for the opposite side.
And that’s how super quick and easy it is to install SuperATV Tree Kickers on this Polaris RZR XP 1000. To pick up your tree kickers today, check us out online. Thanks for watching, and we’ll catch you on the next one.
