Let’s be real, not all of us are gear heads who love nothing more than spending time in the garage with a huge box full of tools. In fact, some of us have little to no clue how a side-by-side’s mechanical structure operates. The result is dread and procrastination when it comes to servicing our prized offroad possession.
Whether it’s a Polaris RZR used for play or a Honda Pioneer used for work, one thing remains the same. There are a few UTV hard parts that consistently need up-keep, so you can keep-on. Those parts include but are not limited to drive belts, ball joints, bushings, oil change kits, batteries, brake pads, and air filters.
Recognizing the signs is half the battle. Believe it or not, your buggy will generally let you know when it’s time for a check-up. You may experience vehicle exhaustion, over-the-top vibration, drive noise, poor handling, or even poor gas mileage. Once you notice your rig isn’t running like a champion, it’s a sure sign you have some mechanical up-keep to do.
Once you’ve pin-pointed the worn part, it’s all down hill from there. It’s as easy as browsing SideBySideStuff.com and grabbing the component that needs revamping. Then roll up your sleeves, grab your tools, and get ready to revitalize your offroad asset. Most of these aftermarket parts are bolt-on assemblies, which means it’s as easy as swapping the old with the new, right to your factory locations. Done and done. See, that wasn’t so hard, was it?
