— The UTV Action crew got hold of a new 2017 Yamaha YXZ1000R Special addition that was upgraded with the GYTR options. This included the lower gearing kit and the Rekluse clutch, which switches the manual clutch to a no-pedal clutch. We then put it in a shootout against the top non-turbo Polaris which is known as the RZR XP 1000 Gold EPS LE.

Some people refer to this model RZR as the “Rock Crawler”, because of its 30 inch tires, beadlock wheels, high clearance A-arms and link rods, skid plate, rock sliders, stronger axles and lower gearing. It is indeed at home when crawling through difficult sections of trails. How does the YXZ compare to it when set up with similar equipment available from Yamaha? You can find out in the May 2017 issue of UTV Action magazine. Make sure you get a copy.
