S&S Cycles joined the UTV market with the Power Tune XTO Exhaust for Polaris RZRs and Honda Talons (UTVactionMag.com June 27th), and now the V-Twin hop-up giant expands the XTO fitment to all Can-Am Maverick X3s. Utilizing dual outlets with optional tuning cores (full race to quiet, simply pull the end caps) and stainless-steel construction, the X3 XTO flows 20-percent more than the OEM muffler. The X3 XTO comes with Forestry-approved and replaceable spark arrestors (SAE Standard J335), and optional quiet baffles reduce sound to below SAE J1287 for hunters, music lovers, or sensitive areas. MSRP for #550-1062 is $909.95; see www.sscycles.com.

S&S Cycles’ new X3 XTO exhaust allows us to tune our exhaust with several dual-core inserts, from quiet to full race. The X3 XTO slip-on is $909.95.



Vance & Hines announce a lineup of exhaust systems for the most popular UTV offerings on the market. The UTV market in the US was estimated at over $7 billion in 2020 with a projected CAGR of 6% through 2027. The company debuted its Mojave Eliminator Series at the Sand Sports Super Show in Orange County, California.

Vance & Hines has been powering Rodney and Own VanEpren to race wins and championships since 2020, and now they off high-end slip-on Mojave Eliminator exhausts for Can-Ams, Polaris, Hondas and Yamahas.

“Style, sound and performance are the three pillars of our brand,” said Vance & Hines President Mike Kennedy. “We knew we wanted to enter the side-by-side market with a bold statement about Vance & Hines. Not just great performance, not just great sound, but also a style that totally transforms the rear of the vehicle. I think our team nailed it, and I can’t wait to show it to customers this weekend.”


Every aspect of the new line of exhaust systems has been tailored to meet the rigorous demands of off-roading, from heavy-duty bracketry to an automotive-grade, all-mechanical muffler design that is maintenance-free. Each of the systems produces power gains along with a deeper and more satisfying growl, while still meeting SAE J1287 sound standards and complying with EPA emissions criteria. All the units are equipped with US Forest Service compliant spark arrestors.


Vance & Hines has been creating race-winning systems for the Yamaha Powersports1.com racing team since 2020, with drivers Rod and Owen VanEperen, earning four SxS championships over the past three seasons. Those learnings from the track have enabled the company to develop the Mojave Eliminator Series, testing and refining the new systems at the Vance & Hines Off Road Proving Grounds in the Mojave Desert.

All of the systems are visually striking and change the look of the rear of the unit with a laser-cut rear guard featuring the Vance & Hines logo. The 4-inch, dual-tip, center exits with CNC-machined billet end caps reaffirm to riders left in the dust that this system delivers the sound, performance and style that Vance & Hines is known for.


The initial launch of the series includes three part numbers which fit Honda, Polaris and Can-Am units dating from 2017 to today. (See below for specific fitments). Vance & Hines will begin shipment of its Mojave Eliminator Series units later in October.
