HOW-TO: Setting up UTV suspension

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. While many of the newer performance models might have multiple adjustment options, even the most basic utility options will have some sort of adjustment. The factory setup is designed to “perform” for a very wide range of users and conditions; this set “factory” setup is not going to be ideal for you end users,…

PERFORMANCE CVT CLUTCH INSTALL: HOW-TO

The Polaris RZR XP 1000 is an amazing machine; great handling and tons of power make for the ultimate UTV experience. In comparison to the already-impressive XP 900, the XP1K is an all-around bigger machine, with more than 20 percent more horsepower and enough torque to pull much larger 29- and 30-inch tires. The one downfall, or obvious weak link, is the clutch. While the XP 1000 is clearly more machine than the previous 900 model, its major clutching components and belt are exactly the same. While some think that the XP…

PROJECT TEST: ADVENTURE RZR XP 1000

In our January 2014 issue, we reported on how Allen Knowles of CT Racing set up his Polaris RZR XP 900 for comfort while exploring and getting to prime hunting and fishing spots. Scott Lee of Tri-State RV Supply, HCR Racing and MCXUSA Turbos had the same idea when he built this RZR XP 1000 for Karen Alstott so she could go exploring and rock crawling at Moab and Sand Hollow. Although he has access to all of the long-travel suspension of HCR Racing and 180-horsepower MCXUSA turbos featured in last month’s shootout against the…

Modified Shootout – Maverick vs. RZR

Can-Am has enjoyed sales and racing success in 2014 with the Maverick 1000 X rs and DPS, but Polaris upped the ante in the 1000 class with the new RZR XP 1000 producing 107 horsepower to the Maverick’s 101 horsepower. The new XP1K also has more suspension travel at 16 inches front and 18 inches rear to the Can-Am’s 14 inches of travel. Neither has the travel of the Wildcat 1000X at 17 inches front and 18 inches rear, but the 1000X only produces 90-plus horsepower. HCR Racing’s suspension kit for the Wildcat only beefs up the…
