Towing a RZR behind another vehicle is not recommended. Always transport the vehicle on a trailer or flatbed.
If towing a disabled vehicle is unavoidable, place the disabled vehicle's transmission in neutral. Tow the shortest distance possible. Do not operate faster than 10 miles per hour (16 kilometers per hour).
Transporting the Vehicle
Follow these procedures when transporting the vehicle:
1. Place the transmission in PARK.
2. Stop the engine. Turn the key back on to the accessory or ON position without starting the engine. Slowly release the brake pedal and make sure the transmission is in PARK before exiting the vehicle, verifying that the PARK position is shown on the display.
3. Prior to securing the vehicle, adjust the vehicle's compression damping settings to their lowest (softest) setting by turning the clickers all the way out. On vehicles equipped with DYNAMIX active suspension, the key switch must remain in the ON position, the suspension mode switch must be in the COMFORT setting and the demo mode timeout must not be active while securing the vehicle. Shock damping settings can be verified on the suspension visualization screen.
4. Secure the vehicle.
5. After the vehicle has been secured, verify the gauge indicates PARK and turn the vehicle power OFF. On DYNAMIX equipped models, verify also that the suspension compression damping values are still soft after securing the vehicle. If after securing the suspension demo mode has timed out or the suspension has moved to a FIRM setting as indicated on the suspension control screen, cycle the key switch, place the mode switch in COMFORT mode and re-tighten the straps per step number 3.
6. Remove the key to prevent loss during transporting. Secure the fuel cap and seats. Ensure that the seats are attached correctly and are not loose.
7. Always tie the frame of the vehicle to the transporting unit securely with suitable straps or rope. See below for proper tie-down points. Make sure two tie straps are attached to the front, one on each side, and two are attached to the rear.

Make sure you know the weight of your cargo and the safe working load limit (WLL) of your straps. The WLL is a measure of the maximum weight the strap can safely handle. The combined WLL of your straps must be greater than the weight of your cargo. If the vehicle weighs 1,000 pounds and you are using four straps, each strap must have a WLL of at least 250 pounds.
8. If transporting a RZR equipped with a roof in a non-enclosed trailer, the vehicle must face forward or the roof must be removed. Failure to comply may allow airflow, vibration or other factors to separate the roof from the vehicle.
