— Yamaha’s revolutionary YXZ1000R is a shrunken sand rail for the masses and an economical way to get into short-course racing. But beyond gobbling up sand whoops at speed, most desert dwellers will want softer suspension, and so will those negotiating rocks — from eastern limestone in West Virginia and Tennessee to the Rocky Mountains and Utah’s sandstone. Long-travel kits and shocks will be on many people’s lists for the ultimate UTV. And, many enthusiasts will want more power and speed out of the YXZ, as it’s roughly equal to the RZR XP 1000 in acceleration. That won’t quite cut it in today’s turbo world, and two companies already offer turbo kits for the Yamaha. Racers will definitely want to move the radiator to behind the cab and upgrade the cage to meet promoter safety standards. Rock crawlers will want to arm other areas as well, and those wanting to add lights, audio and communication accessories will need to add another battery and accessory alternator. Here is the first wave of many upgrades for the YXZ1000R.
