Blingstar RZR 800 Suicide Doors, Test:
Adding doors adds a feeling of safety and security. Blingstar’s Suicide Doors are designed to be light and strong, constructed of 6061 aluminum. The door’s framing comes pre-assembled, leaving you to install Blingstar’s Slam Latch, door latch system, and door panel inserts. The door panels feature laser-cut sight windows, with optional block-off plates available. The door’s tubing comes covered in black, textured powder coat. The doors’ panels are available in brushed or polished aluminum finishes, or in the textured black powder coat we opted for.
Installation was pretty simple on our Polaris RZR S 800 taking two of us a couple of hours to bolt up. Fitment was excellent. All of the mounting holes lined up well and the doors’ lines matched up beautifully with the machine’s plastic.
With its red bodywork, the look of the sides of the machine were smoothed out with a set of red and black Blingstar graphics. They are constructed of abrasion-resistant, 18 Mil, UV-protected material. Their thick construction, strong adhesive, and pre-cut holes for mounting hardware made them a snap to line up and stick on.
Blingstar’s Suicide Doors are unobtrusive when stepping into the RZR. Compared to the other aftermarket door brands we’ve tested, we like Blingstar’s latches the best. The operation of Blingstar’s Slam Latch system is smooth and closes securely consistently. The convex shape created by the frame and door panels bends outward a bit from the cockpit, helping maintain knee and elbow room.
With the doors installed, you really get the feeling like your sitting inside a car. More than just a feeling, the doors add an element of protection from the elements, helping keep splashing mud, water, and encroaching foliage out. They also help to keep your limbs in, in the event of a rollover.
The doors rattled a bit over the rough stuff, but nothing serious or annoying; it was muffled a bit by our helmets and the sound of the engine.
We’ve installed and used Blingstar’s Suicide Doors on both the RZR 800 and XP 4 1000. On both machines, we were equally impressed with their fitment, form, and function. Aside from performing well, their pricing is also very reasonable for a premium brand door; for those reasons, we think they’re a great add-on and a good value.
