UTV ACCESSORY GUIDE

— In every issue of UTV Action magazine we have a “Shopping Club” section that features new parts, products and accessories that UTV owners might need. We figured it would be a good idea to showcase some of those things on our website too. Here’s a collection of items from various categories that caught our eye this month.

KAWASAKI WOMEN’S ARMY CAMO FLAG TEE

Kawasaki’s Women’s Army Camo Flag tee has a wholesome all-American look, and the green tones are fashionable all year round. It’s made from soft, 60-percent cotton/40-percent polyester that is comfortable and retains its shape and fit. It’s $25.95, and you can get it from your Kawasaki dealer or www.kawasaki.com.

SIDI GAVIA GORE-TEX BOOTS

Sidi’s Gavia Gore-Tex boots are mid-height UTV driving boots with a waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex membrane. These boots have breathable leather-like microfiber uppers that withstand age and moisture better than leather. Flexible, breathable fabric panels increase comfort and control feel. The fabric-lined interior incorporates shin and ankle pads. Gavia boots have a zipper and Velcro closure and a molded sole. They’re available in black only for $250 from your Sidi/Motonation dealer or www.motonation.com.

SCORPION EXO AT950 HELMET

Scorpion’s EXO AT950 helmet is ideal for UTV riding in all kinds of conditions. It can be worn with or without a visor, with goggles or a face shield, and the chin bar flips up out of the way. When used with a face shield, a retractable tinted shield provides better visibility in strong sun. This helmet has a strong, light polycarbonate shell and is DOT approved. Venting includes a closeable mouth-guard vent, a vent above the face shield and two exhaust vents for plenty of airflow when needed. The Kwickwick II interior liner is soft, comfortable and anti-microbial, and it wicks moisture away. There are speaker pockets in the comfort liner. The EX0 AT950 is $270 in solid colors or $290 for multicolor, and camo schemes are $290. Look for it at Scorpion Helmets: http://scorpionusa.com/products/

EXTREME METAL PRODUCTS FLIP-UP WINDSHIELD

Few UTV accessories are as useful as a windshield—until the temperatures climb. EMP’s Flip Up windshield is there when you need it, and it opens to a vent position or flips up out of the way when you don’t. Gas struts hold the windshield in the position you choose. It’s made of durable, hard-coated, 1/4-inch Lexan. It mounts in minutes and is available for most popular UTVs for $370. You can get it from www.extrememetalproducts.com.

HOT RODS RZR 900 & 1000 HEAVY-DUTY CONNECTING RODS

Do you have a RZR in need of an engine rebuild? Hot Rods heavy-duty connecting rods have an 8-percent-thicker beam and a larger radius around each end compared to stock rods. Double-drilled small ends increase lubrication. Tapered small ends with a unique oil groove in the bronze bushing prevent galling under high loads. These rods are engineered specifically for Cylinder Works big-bore RZR 900 and RZR 1000 cylinder kits. RZR 900 rods are $100. RZR 1000 rods are $120 from www.hotrodsproducts.com.

RATCHET JACKETS

Nothing beats ratchet tie-downs for security when hauling your UTV, but the sharp metal edges of the ratchet can beat up your machine’s paint, plastic and aluminum. Ratchet Jackets are neoprene sleeves that slide onto the strap and over the ratchet to protect your UTV’s looks while still allowing the ratchet to function normally. Ratchet Jackets come in red, black, Diamond Plate and Next Camo in sets of 3, 6, 9 or 12 for $15, $26, $36 and $44, respectively. You can find them at www.ratchetjacket.com.

MAXXIS ROXXZILLA TIRES

Maxxis’ Roxxzilla is an eight-ply radial tire with a special soft compound for excellent rock-crawling traction. A high-void ratio in the center, stepped shoulder lugs and two-layer shoulder construction increase grip and add puncture and tear resistance in punishing, rocky conditions. It’s available in the popular 30x10R-14 size for $280. You can find these tires at your dealer or visit www.maxxis.com.

ITP SD BEADLOCK WHEELS

ITP’s Severe Duty (SD)-series single-beadlock wheels are available in a 16-spoke design with a black powdercoated finish and milled edges. You can get them in 14-inch and 15-inch sizes. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty against bending or breaking, ITP’s SD wheels offer more “inner” clearance than the SD Dual beadlock, as well as a wide range of application and fitment options for UTVs and ATVs. Each wheel includes a matching, six-spoke, ITP-branded center cap. Prices start at $160. Your dealer has them, or visit www.itptires.com.

GBOOST CLUTCH KITS

GBoost clutch calibration kits are complete bolt-in kits designed to optimize your UTV’s clutching for your individual needs. GBoost offers a variety of kits, including the Trail Riding kit for stock machine applications and average riding, a Trail Performance kit for mildly built machines that will be driven more aggressively and have more top end, and a Sand Dune kit that helps increase and maintain wheel speed in soft sand. A non-engine braking helix is also available. These kits are available for just about every Polaris UTV, the Can-Am X3 and the Textron Stampede. Each kit is customizable to your specific application depending on tire size, terrain type, weight, etc. Prices are $450 with Helix and E Series belt, $400 with S-Series belt, and $300 without Helix.

BARNETT YXZ1000R CLUTCH SPRING CONVERSION KIT

Barnett’s clutch-spring conversion kit converts the stock diaphragm-type clutch spring and cast pressure plate to six heavy-duty coil springs and a pressure-plate precision-machined billet aluminum. This provides a more controllable, linear clutch engagement and is more durable than stock. It’s made in America and bolts on with no modifications required. It simply replaces the stock pressure plate/spring assembly. Included in the kit are the six heavy-duty springs, billet pressure plate, spring cups and stainless screws. It’s $142. You can order it at www.barnettclutches.com.
