Here are some machines in that category that got some special treatment from S3 Powersports. Check out the list of things done to these mean monster mud machines: 2014 POLARIS SCRAMBLER XP 1000 S3 Power Sports 5" Lift Kit Gorilla Axles Airdam Clutch Kit BKT Tires MSA Wheels Snorkels…

CVT BELT BUYER’S GUIDE

-- For a wide number of the most popular and best-selling ATVs and UTVs, the heart of the power delivery system is the CVT belt. There are a few extreme ATV riders who are hard on the CVT belts, but time and mileage are the most common reasons to change an ATV’s CVT belt. UTVs are heavier, so they are harder on CVT belts, whether they are high-horsepower sport models or not. No matter what your CVT-motivated machine is, it will need a new belt sooner or later. We based our belt guide on the Polaris RZR XP 1000 model. It is a…

2018 POLARIS RANGER XP 1000 EPS

-- Redefining the Ranger By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- The Polaris Ranger series has been the backbone of utility UTV life. Rangers are responsible for many innovations in the class. Even if you don’t have first-hand experience with Ranger performance, you need only look at the brands that have “borrowed” styling cues from this capable lineup of machines to see how respected they are. Polaris feels the Ranger has become a little less unique as other brands have copied the look of the machine. Despite that thinking,…

SHOOTOUT: TWO SEATER VS. FOUR SEATER UTV

Which is better for the money? By the staff of Dirt Wheels. There are as many reasons that buyers use to select a new UTV as there are grains of sand in a face full of dune roost. Sure, they differ from person to person and from family to family. Some, happily, are based in fact and logic and, frankly, salesmen hate those people. They would much rather deal with an impulse buyer that responds to a pitch like, “You would look great in this machine!” More so than any other OHV, a UTV may require…

HOW TO REPLACE SUSPENSION BUSHINGS

-- Keep your machine’s suspension working like new, By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- Keeping the suspension working well on a quad or UTV requires a variety of parts to function as they should. Adjusting the spring preload and fine-tuning the adjusters are the fun part. There are less glamorous duties, like making sure that the suspension arms are operating as they should. Most quad and UTV suspension arms pivot on simple plastic bushings with a sleeve for the bolt to go through. For the most part, these work…

This isn’t your daddy’s Volkswagen-powered dune buggy.…
