I believe it's a clearance thing between gears. There's aftermarket kits designed to close the tolerances..

My General has the same annoying noise from day one. I'm going to take it back to the dealer to see what they say. You would think with all the complaints that are going around, Polaris would fix it. It is defiantly a factory defect.

a friend of mine has a rzr 1000 xp and his front diff exploded last weekend they say it happens to all of them and our dealer says general owners can expect the same.. I got the 5 year warrantee as well but it's turning out to be a joke.. my cv boot on the passenger side broke and they are telling me that's not covered. the clock has to be reset every day or so. and the passengers door drags the striker and comes open all the time! not bad for $20,000.00 right?!

Interesting, I have the same issue with both doors and taking it in this week for service, however I'm a manufacture by trade, and looking at the fabrication of the door hinge placement, I'm not sure it can be fixed without actual structural modification.

I thought the same thing. my drivers door does not move at all up and down or have any end play. the passengers door has about 1/2 inch of movement up and down if you lift it up it closes okay but. not if you just try to close it.

I don't think there's a single person on this site, that hasn't had to adjust their doors.

My driver side was/is fine, but I spent a good bit of time, dialing in the passenger side. Getting a consistent door gap is impossible on my machine, but at least it now functions properly.
I would agree!. One of two things occurred from Polaris, wrong frame for the door or wrong door for the frame. For close to $20K, I would expect to have the door to frame closer than 3/4" inch gap from top to bottom of door hinge.

It would appear, at first observation, quality control got set to the side to meet promised delivery to the dealers.

Also, if you have adjusted your doors and after riding they are messed up again, check the latch itself. Mine was loose originally, I tightened it when I adjusted the door. After first ride it was messed up. So I started the process over again and found the latch to be loose again. There is 2 bolts that hold the latch together. I had to take the inner panel off to get to the top one.

The two bolts that go through 8 to hold 10.
