I've driven many different brands of vehicles. The cheaper brands, just feel cheap. That's just my opinion. I'd recommend buying a nice used vehicle, rather than a cheap new one. 

   You have to be honest about what its intended use is for. These can be very specialized machines. For example, a mud buggy, won't be very good at hauling wood. It'll work, but not well. 

   Bigger is better on these things. There's nothing wrong with the small ones, but the bigger ones hold more stuff. So unless you're wanting mud specific, or putting it in the back of a pickup...get a full size machine.

   Probably most important of all, is parts availability. Buying a recognized brand will be the best for this. 

  If I were buying a used machine, I'd look at a Polaris, or Kubota, for the bigger ones. Especially the Kubota diesel. And I'm definitely not a fan of computer controlled units. So older just makes sense to me.

Price range? Ideally, 6000.00 ish but if something nice comes along or great factory deals?

About 19 months back I researched UTV's myself, after 3 months of thorough research and much tire kicking and crawling up under around and thru I decided on a Kymco 450i UTV.  This machine has been awesome, trouble free, great reliability rating and used ones are very hard to find.  Factory service has been rated as extremely good and problems per 100 units manufactured are one of the lowest in the industry. Do yourself a favor and research the Kymco USA website and link the side x side area. Not a Chinese company but instead are made in Tiwain, they allow usa engineers and quality control into there country where Chinese do not.  Kymco also has a USA factory and parts supply and easy to get parts online or thru a dealer.  My local dealer was very cool, actually had an offroad track to test out the machines, with hills, mud, trees downed to climb over, just like a ride in the woods.

      Hi, 
      New to the forum. 
      Came here looking for some experienced UTV users who can enlighten me about which brand should I pick for my very first UTV or SXS. 
      I'm between 3 brands and 3 models: 
      *Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXR   1000.
      *Yamaha wolverine rmax2. 
      *Can am Commander XTP. 
      The use I'm willing to give it is mostly to go to the range with my wife, load steel targets and all our shooting gear, we shoot a lot, rifles, Shotguns and Handguns for practice, training and competition. (Range is about 10 miles from home) 
      But also I want something that I can take to the trails and have fun on dirt, mud, rocks, puddles or creeks. 
      Any objective information will be appreciated, specially which is more reliable and durable. 
      Thank you and happy 4th of July.

      I could really use some help identifying some disconnected components on a Yard Sport YS400. The first part is this pipe, which comes out of the exhaust port area or the cylinder. It looks like it had a piece of rubber hose on it, but the hose is gone, and I have no idea what it was previously connected to.

      The second item is this vacuum valve looking thing.  Again only one line is still attached.  What is it's function and what other lines should be connected to it?

      The last thing is this hose, which exits the side top of the fuel tank (not the fuel line hose) but is not connected to anything

       
      Any help the community could provide would be greatly appreciated.  This UTV belongs to a friend, and I am trying to help him get it running correctly for his kids.

      My 2018 XG-850-SL starter died yesterday. The old part number from Kubota is E7153-11732 which has been superceed by part # EG881-63010. I am looking for an aftermarket starter because the Kubota retail price for the starter starts at $550 and upwards toward $850.  If anyone has gone down this road before and has found an aftermarket starter ~ please share with me. We own a ranch and this thing is used every single day and is sorely missed when it is down for maintenance.  Kind Regards, ~ Stan

      That's the question! Or, if you want to add details:
      (a) How do you use the UTV? (roads? off-road to get to trees? etc.)
      (b) If you are wearing a helmet--how frequently? What type of helmet?
       
      My own answers: (a) Most of the time off-road to get to downed trees, cut the trees to logs and haul the logs back for splitting. (b) Very rarely, a ski helmet and not a motorcycle helmet.

      Just bought a used UTV, my first SxS.  It is extremely LOUD!   Was thinking of wearing shooting ear muffs to muffle the noise but then my passenger( wife) and I couldn't hear each other over the shouting we have to do now.... On the other hand we sometime ride with my brother and his wife and would like to be able to communicate. We throught about FRS and/or GMRS radios (we are licensed for GMRS) but we'd have to wear earphones under our ear muffs. My state doesn't require helmets to ride UTVs.
      I suppose if everyone has a cheap FRS/gmrs bubble pack radio with a ear phone we could all talk to one another. Just wear an ear plug in the other ear or ear muffs.
      Looking for suggestions.
