TEXTRON ACQUIRES ARCTIC CAT, REBRANDS BAD BOY OFF-ROAD

These are exciting times in the powersports industry, coming off Polaris’ acquisition of off-road–accessories giant 4 Wheel Parts, commercial utility vehicle company Textron has announced its acquisition of Minnesota-based recreational vehicle manufacturer Arctic Cat. While you may not be familiar with the Textron name itself, you’ll instantly recognize many of the names under the Textron umbrella, including E-Z-GO golf carts, Dixie Chopper and Jacobsen lawn mowers, Cushman utility vehicles, TUG aircraft tow tractors, Bell Helicopters, Cessna, and Beechcraft aircraft.

In addition to the Arctic Cat acquisition, going forward, Bad Boy Off-Road, which Textron acquired in 2010, will be rebranded Textron Off-Road. Bad Boy gained recognition for its hybrid and electric side-by-side models, which became popular with hunters for their silent operation. The rebranded Textron Off-Road models will begin arriving in dealerships in April.

Textron’s corporate headquarters are in Providence, Rhode Island. Textron Specialized Vehicles, the unit that will assume responsibility for Arctic Cat, is based in Augusta, Georgia. Arctic Cat’s manufacturing operations in Minnesota will remain intact. With the acquisition of Arctic Cat, Textron will have expansive coverage of the side-by-side and light utility vehicle market in both the commercial and consumer spaces.

      Hello.  I have 2006 kawasaki mule 3010 trans 4x4 that has the drivers side wheel turning inwards while the passenger side is straight.  What would cause this to happen and what would you suggest to repair.  Thanks.  Adjusted the tie rods, but wont fix this.

      Afternoon,
      Doing some much needed overdue maintenance on the Joyner T2.  Believe mine is a 2011.
       
      In need of :
      - wheel bearings and seals (small and large)
               Outer 65x45x8
               Inner 62x42x8
               Bearing 02.D650.03.01.0005 - 65x35x35
      - Inner tie rod joints
           D800.05.01.00.0002
      - Upper and lower ball joints
           S650.02.01.01.01.00
      and I'm sure I'll uncover a few others as I continue the tear down
       
      What's the most reliable for parts now?
       
      - Casey Ye from China, assuming shipping cost and time would be higher.
       - Klung, China contact as well I believe.
       - MPSRacing.net
       - Is ordering from Joyner-USA working for folks?
             Address: 1650 E Riverview Dr Ste 110, Phoenix, AZ 85034        Phone: (602) 253-0283 Don't want it torn apart in the shop for too long.
       
       
      Is there a parts manual floating around for ordering the correct parts?  I have a 2009 parts manual I believe, but there are definitely differences between that model and mine.
      Hate to order the wrong stuff.
       
      Thanks,
