Wear items such as tires, CVT belts and brake pads, if in good working order, can improve any ride you go on. All three of these components are subject to abuse from bad driving habits and the nasty terrain we like to take UTVs through. While tires and belts are on everyone’s minds, the UTV’s brake pads should not be ignored and are very easy to replace. Here’s a quick step-by-step showing how easy it is to do the job yourself on a RZR XP 1000.
For the RZR XP 1000, you repeat the same steps on all four corners. For this job we used DP’s sintered brake pads, which they claim will last two to three times longer than stock. After 1300 miles our stock pads weren’t metal to metal yet, so we expect the DP products will last for many years to come. The DP Brakes have been working better than stock and are so far squeak-free. Visit www.dp-brakes.com to find a dealer.
