    All UTV's Utv long distance ride

    Not sure the length of the ride is an issue - compare 4 x 50 mile rides = 200 mile ride. We do desert races that are in the 150 mile range - only stopped for fuel. Speed / course is also a factor - racing places additional stresses vs trail riding. Up keep / maintenance will always be a factor...

    Electric UTV charging problem

    If you suspect a bad battery- suggest contacting Joe at 2nd Life Battery - They are a sponsor of the King of the Kastle Desert 100 UTV race in OR. Joe is a wizard and hybrid type batteries. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Who wants to qualify UTV's for The Mint 400 at King of The Hammers?

    Is there going to be UTV qualifying at KOH ?!? - looking at UTV Rally class. Planning on going down to KOH with our Gambler for HooptieX - and needing to know if I need a bigger trailer to also bring the YXZ as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So to clarify? Would qualifying be on the KOH course or a separate course - say the TT track? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dakar 2019 - UTVs

    Guess you missed it - Talon already finished... Can Am has a huge presence and is doing well. The few YXZ’s are running respectable. Robby is having a brutal day - and it’s only day 3... This like a 2 weeks of races in Baja with no GPS to follow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Best UTV for highway use and daily extended street driving

    4 seats, road use, 12k - tough mix. My thoughts- YXZ - manual trans, low & stable, good speed capability. Wolverine x4 - good power, 4 seats Honda Pioneer 5 - hood power, 4 seats, but funky bench seat. Teryx4 - 4 seats but not hi speed machine. Old XP’s - can be had in 2 and 4 seat versions-...

    New Honda Talon to launch Nov 27th 2018!

    My rubber band driven Teryx would pull the front wheels up, as would the MTEG car (musta been the 350cc Honda power). Cool tech and feature- yes. Fear of racing against one - never. Once they come out and get some hours racked up - that will be the proof. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    For bolt ones: Weller makes a rear one. Krash makes a front one - a hint on installing it - we ground off the powder coat where the clamp goes - also welded on a short piece of 1.75x120 DOM to the frame and butted up to the clamp - though is during a hard hit this will keep the clamp from...

    New here

    Did you add some braces during the rebuild - Krash, Texiera, Weller, etc? We also found the YXZ (along with Teryx & Mavericks) benefit from a second A pillar tube and one from the B pillar to frqm @ the suspension pivot (aka triangulation). For some reason I can not post photos. Sent from my...

    Racers burned at Lucerne

    Rails are good designs - only so many ways to make them. Did notice that some vendors have AN style hoses (Teflon-stainless braid) and fittings that work with those rails. Aviation fire sleeve is good stuff to. My top 3 safety concerns - 5pt belts, cage, fire extinguisher. Will ride this...

    Racers burned at Lucerne

    Looked at my YXZ - yup - plastic fuel rail, and plastic lines, injector bodies, fittings, pump, tank etc. Is it an issue - who knows. But consider the auto industry uses the same technology with minimal issues. Then to the average Honda does not experience the vibration or flying debris a SxS...

    Sad deal - wish for the best to all involved. Fact is fire is all of our worst fear - has happened before and will happen again. Be it garage built SxS to mega $ CL1 & TT - it happens. What has changed over time is EFI and fuel pressure - the 9/1600 and even our old 7s were carbed, and even then...
