Can-Am’s new Maverick X3 turbos have raised the UTV performance bar with the turbocharged 900cc triples and third-generation technology, making the three X3s feel like fighter jets.

Dear Sarge, I recently purchased a Honda Pioneer 1000 and I just can’t seem to understand how this transmission works. I have followed the dealer’s advice exactly but I can’t get the DCT to shift from 2×4 to 4×4 differential lock unless I am almost stopped. Also, sometimes I can’t get the rear differential to release in 2×4 mode. Sarge,

He mentioned that if I wanted to be street-legal in Utah, I would need to have turn signals (and side mirrors) on my UTV.

Most ATV and UTV suspensions are really pretty similar. Whether it be race or play, swingarm, A-arm or crazy long-travel trailing arms, they are pretty much all controlled by some type of coil-over shock absorber.
