TOP 25 MAVERICK X3 PRODUCTS

— Buyer’s Guide to the best bolt-on accessories —

Can-Am’s extensive line of Maverick X3 Turbos are gaining market share at a turbocharged pace, and Arizona’s aftermarket companies and suspension specialists are bumping the rev limiter in making X3s better in performance, comfort and style. We went to Scottsdale’s Westworld Off-Road Expo this spring to check out the latest and greatest in UTV hardware. While many of the vendors were RV, Jeep, 4×4 truck and rock-crawler companies, UTVs accounted for almost half of the displays and builds, with Maverick X3s and X3 products in many of those booths. These new products and builds were as exciting as the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing and Textron Wildcat XX demos and freestyle motocross exhibitions. (Note: DragonFire Racing wasn’t at the expo, but DFR is partnered with BRP to make several X3 accessories; see www.canam.brp.com.)

Geiser Performance had two of the trickest Maverick X3 builds at the Off-Road Expo, with one of them for sale for $65,000. Geiser also makes an inner clutch housing liner ($99.95); it’s made of 5052 aluminum and strengthens the housing to prevent damage in case the CVT belt breaks.
Rockford Fosgate’s Maverick X3 build features Arizona companies TMW Off-Road (www.tmwoffroad.com, [480] 969-9261) and BS Sand Seats (www.bssand.com, (877) 9BS-SAND). See www.rockfordfosgate.com.

EZZO PRODUCTS COMPRESSOR MOUNT
Duners and rock crawlers need to air down and up often, so Ezzo Products made this under-seat compressor mount. The bracket with mounting hardware is $35, and it’s designed to place a Harbor Freight Pittsburgh air compressor under the driver’s seat for airing all four tires.

EZZO PRODUCTS MULTI MOUNTS
These cool L-brackets are slotted and use the existing bolts on the top X3 A- and B-pillars to mount lit whips or LED pods for $25 a pair. They’re designed so the plates can go below or above the mounting bolts and tilt for aiming lights. Or, use them to mount video cameras.
EZZO PRODUCTS DUAL HEADSET HANGER

utilizes the existing holes in the B-pillar support, starting at $25. To carry a spare belt overhead,
