When purchasing a UTV, one of the first things many people want to do is to upgrade them after the first few test drives. Upgrading a UTV doesn’t necessarily involve tuning the engine or other similar parts, as there are many other things you can add or improve.
With that in mind, we thought about showing some basic parts that you can get to make your experience that much easier and satisfying. Furthermore, if you keep on reading, you’ll also find a few neat tips and tricks that will surely improve your overall driving experience.
Always Choose Genuine Parts
If you want to choose high-quality KRX 1000 accessories or parts for any other UTV out there, then there’s no other way but to go for genuine aftermarket stuff. You wouldn’t put lousy and cheap Chinese parts into a great gaming PC, so don’t do that to your UTV either.
Safety First, Functionality Second, Looks Third
We all want to customize our UTV and give it that special look that stands out. However, if you can’t afford to get multiple accessories and parts at once, it’s best to do it slowly. As you’ve probably figured out from the headline, you should go for accessories that improve safety, first and foremost.
Afterward, you can start focusing on functionality-related accessories, such as walkie-talkies, radios, audio systems, enhanced air filters, and so forth. Finally, you will be able to focus on the visual aspect, such as getting new paint, decals, and other purely cosmetic aspects.
Always Have a Winch and Towing Accessories With You
No matter how good your UTV is or how well-made your UTV parts are, you never know when you’ll need to tow your machine after a wild off-road trip. That’s why keeping a winch handy is mandatory.
You might end up in water that was just a little too deep. Or maybe you might get stuck on a rock that was just a little higher than expected. In any case, you’ll want to have a winch and towing accessories with you at all times to get out of sticky situations a little easier.
Keep Spare Bolts and Lug Nuts Handy
Just like you can always get stuck while off-roading, lug nuts and bolts can break off due to constant or heavy impact. As such, we recommend always keeping a few handy just in case. That doesn’t mean you should become paranoid, however. Being cautious is far different from always worrying.
Don’t Forget to Change Consumable Parts & Accessories Regularly
Drive belts, air filters, ball joints, and other UTV parts aren’t meant to last you forever. Just like you need to change the engine oil on a regular basis, you also need to change these parts as well.
What’s important to remember is that you should always take notes regarding when you’ve changed what part and how much its instruction label says it should last. That way, you’ll be prepared to take your spare part and change it as needed instead of being caught with your pants down and no money left to buy another one.
Take Notes of What You Need
Finally, it’s always a good idea to keep a list handy of everything you need. Sure, memorizing it is also good, but writing everything down on paper will ensure that you won’t forget anything. It’s also a good way of keeping tabs on everything when shopping around for spares or replacements.
The Bottom Line
UTV parts are important for the functionality and evolution of your vehicle. You need to take care of them and replace the defective or used ones as necessary.
Always keep in mind to track every part that you need to replace or have as a spare just in case. Don’t forget to put safety above all else, as in buying harnesses and other items to make your ride just that much safer. And, most importantly, don’t forget to have fun.
