-- The UTV Action crew puts them to the test to see how they rate -- Tires are the number one thing UTV owners buy for their machines.

Well, to gain as much information as you can you read what the UTV Action magazine test crew has…

CVT COVER QUICK-CONNECT KIT

-- Remove & install your CVT cover much quicker -- Here's a smart idea we saw on Marc Burnett's racing Can-Am X3. Instead of bolts holding the CVT cover on there are little push-button T-handles. You push the button, insert the T-handles in the hole then release the button. It holds the cover securely and you don't have to spend time racheting a bolt in and out. There are lanyard wires holding the T-handles to the CVT cover so you don't lose them. You can get this kit for your Can-Am X3 from Marc Burnett Motorsports…

UTV SUPPORT VEHICLES

-- How to keep on going when the trails get too tight -- Here's something a little different we spotted while riding up at the Oregon Dunes. We have two UTVs set up to haul Honda ATC70s on the back. They could come in handy as little support vehicles. Or perhaps these guys haul the ATCs to a spot out in the dunes and unload them for their kids to ride. Either way, there's no doubt that the little three-wheelers allow you to keep on going if the UTV gets stuck in the mud or between two tree it can't fit through. Send…
