In addition, Yamaha has been named the official support vehicle and power products provider for Greaves Motorsports, which includes a full range of generators and pressure washers.<br /><br />In the upcoming 2017 TORC Series, three-time Pro2WD champion and current Pro4WD title holder, CJ Greaves will be competing in the PRO Stock UTV class aboard the Yamaha YXZ1000R. CJ will debut the newly built YXZ1000R in the final 2016 TORC event, which will be held at Crandon International Raceway in Crandon, WI on Sept 1-4. This will be the very first short-course World Championship UTV race held at Crandon International.<br /><br />Johnny Greaves commented, âWe are very excited about the opportunity to partner with Yamaha for the 2017 TORC Series. Itâs really a perfect fit for our program! Almost all of our current partners are already involved with Yamaha and/or UTV racing, including Monster Energy, Toyota, Maxxis Tires, Method Wheels, Fox Shox, and Impact Racing. In addition, we are very excited to announce our partnership with Graves Motorsports, a well-known manufacturer of performance parts for Yamaha powersports products, including the YXZ1000R.â<br /><br />This is a new class for TORC, and the series made an announcement earlier in the year that the UTV Class would be added to three of the 2016 rounds. Also, starting in 2017, UTV would be a PRO class at all pro events. When CJ heard this and watched the first race, his immediate reaction was, âDad, those things are hauling butt. I would love to try one!â After spectating at the first event, the team agreed that the only way to win the class would be with a Yamaha YXZ1000R. It features the first-ever three cylinder, 998cc engine; a sequential five-speed manual transmission; and a fully adjustable FOX racing suspension.<br /><br />After multiple discussions with representatives from Yamaha Motor U.S.A.âs Racing Division--including Keith McCarty, Motorsports Racing Division Manager, and Donnie Luce, Off-Road Coordinator--we decided to kick the program into high gear and see if it was possible to have a UTV ready for the first ever World Championship race at Crandon International. The vehicle arrived with two weeks to build and test it, and YES, the mission was completed. The YXZ1000R is ready to rock!<br /><br />We would like to thank all the partners involved in helping to bring this project to fruition:<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;">YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A. - MONSTER ENERGY - GRAVES MOTORSPORTS - FOX SHOX - MAXXIS TIRES - METHOD WHEELS - IMPACT RACING - AMSOIL - VICTORY SIGN</div><hr />Follow us on Facebook at <a href="http://www.facebook.com/UTVGuide">www.facebook.com/UTVGuide</a><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/UtvIndustryNews/~4/eUuc7Q0YRbg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

      I'm new with forums and rtvs so let me pre-apologize if i do or say something wrong.  
      I bought a used 2014 1140 cpx, 350 hours.  Its been heavily modified.  Back seat removed and a heavy duty bed added etc.  I call it Franken-Kubota.
      I would love any and all advice or "heads up" specific to this model.
      I need to do a general service, fluids and filters.  I'm confused, are there 3 different hydraulic fluid filters and 1 engine oil filter......etc etc.
      I'd like to use Kubota parts, any suggestions other than dealer?
      I just bought a new Kubota tractor so I'm all in!
      Many thx
      Dave in NC
