IN THE HOT SEAT!

Fully Adjustable HighBack Seats For RZR XP 1000! 

 

When it comes to the hottest UTV on the market, one size does not fit all. That is where DragonFire's HighBack seats come in. Last year we "broadened" our seat range to include the XL seats for riders with waist sizes of more than 40-inches. Now we announce another DragonFire first: Fully adjustable aftermarket seats for the popular Polaris RZR XP 1000! 

 

Both our original GT and new XL series of HighBack seats upgrade the factory XP 1000 seats without compromising the OEM slider/adjustment capabilities. In fact, DragonFire's HighBack GT & XL seats actually improve the function of the factory adjustment mechanism. These seats also keep the adjustment lever tucked up out of the way compared to the highly vulnerable stock location. 

 

Our HighBacks bolt directly to the OEM base plate, making installation a snap! These are the only aftermarket seats for the RZR XP 1000 models that offer a full range of adjustment on the fly. Talk about the hot seat! Our fully adjustable HighBacks should really help XP1K owners Feel The Heat this season!

Don't Let The Season Slip By

Get Gates Belts

 

Spring is in the air! Actually so was Team DragonFire at The Mint 400. Despite the miles of abuse, the DragonFire, RideNow, Can-Am Maverick took everything we could throw at it and never skipped a beat. Nor did we have any issues with the drive belt slipping thanks to the Gates G-Force CVT drive belt we dropped in.

 

With the snow finally letting up in many parts of the country, people are shaking the Winter rust off their Side-X-Sides. Out West, others are squeezing in a few more rides before the Summer heat really sets in… As much as we like for people to "Feel The Heat" even DragonFire draws the line when the mercury climbs over 110-degrees. One common denominator regardless of where or how you ride is that no one likes a slipping belt.

 

DragonFire has your back when it comes to replacement and backup CVT drive belts. Available for nearly every Side-X-Side model on the market, the Gates G-Force lineup offers affordable, performance-oriented and long lasting drive belt options. Check the details below on each style so that the season doesn't slip by!

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!

HiBoys Are Here For Maverick & Commander  

 

Can-Am's new Maverick has been one of the hottest sellers this spring, but now it is time to really "feel the heat" as DragonFire introduces doors for the Maverick and Commander 2-seat models. As hot as the Can-Ams are, we can still make a case for our cool HiBoy doors…. make that an open and shut case in pseudo-legal parlance!

 

These are not your ordinary fab-shop doors with a simple aluminum skin roughly cut out to fit the stock frame. Instead, DragonFire doors have been specifically engineered for a precision fit for the Maverick and Commander in multiple ways. Everything from the solid, frame-anchored mounting points to internal support braces and skin angles coincides with the Can-Am so it looks like these doors came straight from the factory. 


Then we go one step better by integrating our automotive-style "Locked & Secured" slam-shut latch setup. We also incorporate our built-in limiting straps… there is a reason why they are called "Suicide Doors" and we don't want anyone to find out the hard way! All DragonFire doors also feature a stylish black powdercoated finish for anti-corrosion purposes.

 

Our HiBoy doors offer OEM fit and finish levels combined with superior functionality for any 2-seat Maverick or Commander Side-X-Side. Max owners stay tuned, 4-door kits are coming soon!


FEATURES

  • Hand-welded in the USA
  • Suicide opening doors (sold in sets of 2)
  • Slam-shut latches with built-in locks
  • Easily removable doors with upper lock-down hinges

  • Pre-assembled for easy installation
  • Fits all 2-seat Can-Am Maverick 1000, Commander 1000 & 800 models

FROM THE SADDLE

Team DragonFire Takes On The Mint 400

 

What better way to start the toughest off-road race in America than with a little sleep deprivation? The 5 a.m. start of The Mint 400 after a typical Friday night in Las Vegas saw the team up and about well before the sun. Since this was the first outing for Lacrecia Beurrier's newly completed DragonFire/RideNow/ Can-Am Maverick, the entire team was as excited as they were nervous to race the new Can-Am built by Rockstar Customs. Lacrecia and co-driver Chris Moore were strapped into their DragonFire harnesses and heading to the starting line for the green flag at 0-dark-30.

 

In the classic Mint 400 two-up start Lacrecia drew the 14th starting position and was on the line next to the #1922 car of Bret Ferrel, who came all the way out from Lakeland, TN (proving the widespread appeal of the race). The green flag dropped and the EPI clutch kit instantly put power to the ground! The deep sand at the start was heavily rutted, so the 30” ITP Bajacross tires really helped to get the Can-Am out front quickly heading into the rock quarry section of the course. Massive rocks and whoops made for an extremely rough course, but the Elka Suspension Stage 5 shocks allowed Lacrecia to keep the pedal to the metal as she started working her way though the pack. After many passes, Lacrecia found herself in the mix with the front runners as they battled it out trying to get around slower cars and trucks all the way into Pit A to meet the crew for a quick once-over. 

 

She was on a mission after leaving the pit and hammered back into one of the roughest sections of the day where the dust was so thick it totally obscured sight of the track. Somewhere in the silt, the car began to act differently, so Lacrecia stopped and Chris hopped out to check things out. He discovered that a CV joint on the rear axle had broken and was not allowing power to reach the rear tire. The two made the choice to throw the car into 4 wheel drive and continue the additional 70 miles to the next pit.

 

The Gates G-Force drive belts really showed their strength as the duo was able to sustain speeds of 50 miles an hour through the roughest terrain imaginable. Around mile marker 65 a sharp rock in a corner caused a flat tire, forcing the team to stop again. An awkward spot on the track made for a longer fix than normal, but they managed to get going again. Knowing the pit crew at the next stop had no parts to repair the broken axle, they made just a quick stop at the fellow Can-Am team of Murray Motorsports who graciously donated a spare tire to make sure they could make the next pit. Chris was on the radio relaying what needed to be fixed as Lacrecia nursed the car into the main pit. They discovered there were actually two broken axles, meaning Lacrecia drove almost a full lap in front wheel drive only! 

 

The pit crew blew everyone’s mind with a repair fast enough to impress NASCAR types, rebuilding the entire rear axle set-up on the vehicle in under 12 minutes. Special thanks go to Murray Motorsports and Michael Lansky who donated the complete axles on the spot!  Without them, Team DragonFire would have been dead in the water! Thanks guys, we definitely owe you big time!

 

As soon as the tires hit the ground, Lacrecia was on the throttle and they started out for the final lap. Lacrecia truly showed her skills as she was able to pick away at the cars that had been able to get by during the down time. She drove an almost flawless lap and the Can-Am Maverick never skipped a beat.

Passing backmarkers and battling slower traffic, Lacrecia never let up all the way into the finish, securing what seemed to be an impossible 11th place finish out of nearly 50 UTV entries in the Pro class. This was a truly impressive feat considering the course was so rough that less than 50% of the teams managed to finish and longest Lacrecia had previously run in this new car was less than 30 minutes.
