RIDING WITH LARRY ROESELER

It was hard to believe at first—here I was, keeping pace with the 13-time SCORE Baja 1000 winner, 12-time Baja 500 winner and International Six-Day Trial gold medalist Larry Roeseler (“LR”). The last time I raced him on dirt bikes, he lapped me at the Virginia City Grand Prix, and I’ve never even driven a Trophy Truck. Yet, there I was. The thing is, I wasn’t driving in his tire tracks; I was sitting next to LR in his Safecraft/Fox/BFG/LSR RZR XP 4 1000. An American Motorcycle Association Hall of Famer (inducted in…

SETTING UP A UTV FOR LONG DISTANCE RELIABILITY & COMFORT

SCORE Baja races are world famous for their toughness and natural beauty, and the Tecate Baja 1000 is the most famous of them all. November’s 50th annual Baja Mil was the longest and toughest course yet, and we got to do some pre-running with motorsports legend Marc Burnett, the 2014 SCORE UTV Pro champion and 2017 Class 29 Forced-Induction UTV Pro points leader. With a second in the San Felipe 250 and a win at the Tijuana Desert Challenge, Burnett and his Can-Am X-Team Monster Energy Maverick X3 X rs lead Class 29 by 20…

YAMAHA WOLVERINE X4 EPS

-- Yamaha created its first twin-cylinder UTV with the all-new Wolverine X4 sporting an innovative, 847cc, inline twin to power family adventures. Yamaha built the Wolverine X4 to be the most quiet yet off-road-capable four-seat UTV on the market with the most narrow width and shortest length and height for confidently negotiating the tightest forest trails. We got a chance to test the 2018 Wolverine X4 Special Edition at North Carolina’s Brushy Mountain Motorsports Park, and we came away mightily impressed with the X4.…

HOW-TO CHANGE FROM STANDARD ANTIFREEZE TO ENGINE ICE

-- We think it was Yoda who said, “With big horsepower comes big responsibility.” Most 1000cc high performance UTVs are, on average, pumping more than 100 horsepower at the crank. The four-stroke engines of today are very intricate, and every little bit of protection that can help that engine survive for years to come is crucial. One thing that damages engines is extreme temperatures. Luckily, there are companies out there like Engine Ice that make an improved coolant. Engine Ice is a high-performance coolant that is…

RAZORBACK BELT TEMP GAUGE 3.0 EDITION

-- Razorback Technology introduces a digital gauge that allows you to monitor the temperature of your CVT belt. They offer a few different options, but the bottom line is that their digital temp gauge gives you real-time temps of the belt. Heat is the number-one killer of CVT belts, and the Razorback gives you the opportunity to back out of the throttle before causing any damage or a complete failure. FEATURES: The gauge uses infrared technology for instant and actual belt-temp readings, whereas most of the competition is…

CAN-AM MAVERICK TRAIL 1000 TEST

-- At our closest OHV area, located in the Los Angeles National Forest, the best trail is limited to 50-inch machines only, and the same can be said for many national forests across the country. Can-Am has had great success in GNCCs with its 60-inch Maverick 1000R and in SCORE/BiTD with the awesome new 64- and 72-inch-wide Maverick X3 Turbos, so it makes perfect sense for BRP to enter the 50-inch UTV class. Combining some of the features of the Maverick 1000R and Maverick X3 Turbos, Can-Am unleashes the Maverick Trail 1000,…
