    • Just my thoughts.  It's possible with some good design engineering.  I presume your friend has lost the function of both legs.  I don't think putting those controls on the steering wheel would work with any degree of safety.  During a turn, the throttle or brake actuators probably won't be in a position to actuate them if needed, especially in an urgent situation.  A control yoke (vs a steering wheel) with a throttle actuator could be made to work if you don't have to turn the yoke more than 90 degrees (power steering needed).  I would think the throttle (spring loaded to idle) and brake lever would be better accessible from a position on a center console.  Certainly won't be able to do any rock crawling because it takes both hands to maintain directional control without power steering.  Might be limited to slow speed trail rides (my favorite type of off-roading).  Also have to consider the strength of your friends arms and hands.  Most people can apply more brake pedal pressure with their legs by pushing against the back of the seat.  Here's a link to one advertiser: There are automobiles with hand controls, but they have power steering and power brakes to make it easier to drive the vehicle.
    • Is it possible to put a hydraulic brake lever and a throttle lever from an ATV on the steering wheel of a Polaris razor. So  he can  use his hands.   This is for a disabled friend who cant press the brakes
    • For 2018 KYMCO USA has introduced its new Hunter Edition family of off-road vehicles, which consists of three models – the UXV 450i LE Hunter, UXV 700i LE Hunter and MXU 700i LE Hunter. We’ve seen all of these machines before with the Hunter Edition branding, so they’re not exactly all new. However, what is new is KYMCO offering packages for its ATVs and UTVs specifically for hunters. ATVs and UTVs are a common sight at most hunt camps, so it’s not surprising to see KYMCO turning its attention to this market. Having an ATV or UTV on hand to haul out a hog or a deer, or just carry supplies to set up a food plot can be hugely helpful. So what do the Hunter Edition vehicles have to offer? Let’s have a look.

    • Welcome to UTVBOARD and congrats on the new Ranger! I moved this topic into the Polaris forum.  As far as websites, there are few out there like motosport and rocky mountain but I would always double check on amazon, especially if you have prime. Polaris Ranger Accessories on Amazon
    • Welcome the the UTV Board. I have a lot of experience with Kawasaki partshouse, sister site of Polaris partshouse, run by the same people. Good customer service/returns.
