Polaris RZR 900 XP engine reliability?? is the RZR 900 trans the same as the Ranger 900?

Curious to any feedback regarding the reliability of the 900 engine.  Considering a Ranger 900 XP and was wondering what kind of luck you RZR owners were having.  I know the ranger engine is significantly different but I figured if it was relaible with 88 hp it should be pretty reliable in a 60 hp version.  Was also curious as to if anyone knew if the RZR transmisson/transaxle is similar/same as the ranger XP 900 and what kind of service you RZR owners are getting out of the tranmission??

    from what i have seen so far, they are very closely related.
    the only real issue the XP's have had so far has been the reverse chain, but that's only been an issue for those on big tires/lifted/beating on it in reverse.

    ol2s and 32 inch tires are the main ones breaking the reverse chains
