Five Cheap UTV Accessories You Should Have

UTVs are expensive, but getting one set up with accessories that make sense for you doesn’t have to be. Here are five cheap UTV accessories to consider.

Owning a UTV is awesome and opens a lot of possibilities for both work and play. The vehicles make awesome platforms to customize them to your personal needs and tastes. There is a massive aftermarket of accessories to go along with your ride, too. The problem that plagues so many of us is cost. After spending the bucks to buy the UTV, there just isn’t much left over to get the accessories you want and/or need. Luckily, there are some really good products out there that will work great for you and they don’t cost and arm and a leg, either. Here are five cheap UTV accessories that I have been really impressed with that you should take a look at.

Kolpin Switchblade Plow

If you live in snowy regions of the world, you undoubtedly have to find a way to remove the snow from the driveway. A snowplow for your UTV would work amazing, and is a lot of fun. Trust me, I know from experience. The problem is, snowplows for UTVs aren’t cheap. You often have to buy a specific frame for your specific UTV, and then add in the blade and mounting hardware. Kolpin changed that with the Switchblade. This is basically a plow in a box, with a universal-fit frame and adjustable plow blade. The best part is the price. You can get the entire plow setup for less than the cost of frame assemblies on other plows.

Tusk Half Windshield

Tusk Half Windshield

A windshield is an extremely popular accessory. It helps keep dust and rain off you and keeps you a little warmer in the winter months. The problem with most windshields is cost – they aren’t cheap, especially if you opt for a fancy one from the factory. An option to save a few bucks is a half windshield and you can save even more by going with this one from Tusk. For around $100, you can have a Tusk half windshield that will deflect air from smacking you in the face, and offer up a decent amount of trail protection from mud and debris.

Bad Dawg Rearview Mirror

Bad Dawg Rearview Mirror

A rearview mirror makes so much sense in a UTV, you’d almost think they’d come standard from the factory. This is one of my must-have accessories because when you’re really hammering on the trail, it makes backing up safer and easier, especially if you use a seatharness instead of the standard three-point belt. Bad Dawg Accessories makes a sweet mirrorthat has a pretty universal fit and it costs less than $20! I don’t know about you, but that is one deal I wouldn’t mind backing in to. Cheap UTV accessories don’t get much more useful and affordable than this one.

Canyon Scout Cooler

Canyon Scout Cooler

I know, there are cheaper coolers out there. I get that. There are some definite reasons to go with one of today’s extreme coolers, and since you’re driving a UTV, you already know them. They do hold ice longer and they hold up to the abuse trail use can dish out. That’s where this 22-quart Canyon cooler shines. It is designed for adventure and adventure vehicles. It has multiple tie-down points and an extremely rugged construction. I’ve tested lots of coolers and the Canyon coolers are as good or better than any. And let’s face it, if you bought an accessory cooler from a UTV manufacturer, you’re going to spend more. If you’re going to buy a rugged cooler, this is a great deal.

Kolpin 4,500lb. Winch

Kolpin 4,500lb. Winch

A buddy of mine bought a Polaris Ranger 900 and wanted a winch for it. He went to a local farm supply store and bought a 4,000-pound winch for around $150 and was pleased as punch – until it broke after a couple of light uses. He was upset about it and was even more upset when he started looking at buying a good winch, and the price that often goes along with buying good in the first place. Buying a good winch in the 4,000+ rating range will often cost well over $400. It doesn’t have to, though. Kolpin makes winches and you should seriously take a look at them. A 4,500lb Kolpin winch is well under $300 and you’ll be pretty happy with the quality.

      1 1/2 years ago I was riding along in my 2018 Coleman 550 Outfitter when the CVT belt broken.  Just prior to that I was having some shifting issues that I now understand can be part of the clutch. Finally a few months ago I sent it in to a shop who put in a new belt as well as a new wet clutch (drum, one way bearing, etc and an oil change) He fired it up and it turned on fine, sounded fine and I took it home. It was an auto shop but not a UTV specific shop. So get it home and after a half hour or so it started making some noises with my 10 year old driving it around. I get home and he said theres noises again and I played around a bit. Within a short bit of trying to drive it around I started having noises that I now understand was my One Way Bearing being destroyed. Aka metal noises from the bearing falling apart.   Of course, after the cost of $800 to take it to a shop plus $200 in gas, trailer rental etc to take it in and back (it was a friends shop that was a bit of ad istance) I was quite ticked and pushed the UTV back into my garage and left it for a while.  Then this past weekend i watched a bunch of Youtube videos along with a mechanic friend to pull things apart.  We found the spindle was loose, opened it up further and found the one way bearing fell apart in my hand and the little bearings were already worn, no longer round and this was from less than a hour of use. THerefore leading me to believe it had very quick failure after the new wet clutch was put in.  We looked things to look for damage further.  Nothing really scratched/grooves etc so I ordered a new OEM bearing and we put it in, sealed it back up, followed the specs of everything and was 110% sure we put the One Way Bearing in correctly.    We rode it around for a hour, sounded fine.   Next day used it, sounded fine for a half hour.   Third day I turned it on and let it idle a little bit and found that I was hearing metal scraping again like I did right after getting my utv back from the shop.  Therefore I am 99% certain the One Way Bearing is about to break again (already breaking)   Its a brand new OEM belt.  Nothing looks off on the spindle.   I do not know for sure if the shop touched the inner race for which, in my understanding, the One Way Bearing spins. I know I may be sounding ignorant here.  I am not a mechanic by any means but I have learned a bit with the recent Youtube videos and attempted repairs.  Whatever that "ufo" looking object is, we replaced the bearings (those black things that spin) I replaced the whole "Ufo" lol... as the original had some wear/tear that prevented it from spinning perfect. Nothing currently
      visibly looks off... and the issue is mostly when the machine is more in an idle.  It was at an idle when the One Way Bearing sorta went kaput the last time.  THe noises is at an idle... but if I can get it drive, its fine.  It also affects the ability to shift the gears. 

      I know I will have to replace the One Way Bearing again... I just dont know what might cause the issue that is destroying the bearinga nd so quickly.   Again, this all started when the belt snapped when I was going about 15 mph down a road on a warm day.  It has higher miles.  The wet clutch was in bad shape and its replaced.   The paperwork says "wet clutch assembly kit")   Is there something that the belt can do to cause damage that might not be as visible but would directly create an issue that lets the bearing get ate right up?? Help me!  I hate this machine and I really want it to run well ... so I can sell it and find something else  haha..

      Hello all, I have a hose that is in need of replacement but I don't know what it's for. It's twords the rear of the engine down lower, I've looked around for a diagram or an exploded view but can't find anything, I'm assuming it's a radiator line but idk. I guess I could just disconnect it and I'm sure I'll find out real quick what's in it. 
      Also are these hoses cut and sold to fit or do we need to just buy (whatever) length of hose and just get it in there?

      Hi, I’ve recently purchased an Ag Pro 1200 to find that it doesn’t have engine breaking. I live on a very steep property and it feels dangerous not having it. Does anyone know if it can be added? Or any other ideas? I’m mostly using it for weed spraying using a hand held wand… so I need to creep along stopping and starting. Thanks for helping.

      Wife said UTV stopped running and cannot restart. I checked the battery, it was good. I checked the fuse box, no blown fuses. Whe I tried to start, the starter had a thump noise one time, and the starter relay wires were hot. I replaced the relay, nothing. I then replaced the starter and still the same symptoms. It won't start and relay wires hot.  Any ideas what to check next- perhaps ground strap of which I have no idea where it would be, or perhaps a new fuse box with new relays?

      thanks for letting me join, I'm new to ev (utv) i noticed today oil underneath the motor and i was immediately confuse thinking electric utv don't use oil but after looking i noticed a black threaded cap with a black rubber cap on top of the motor. It appears oil was leaking or blowing out from that cap, it has a hole under the rubber peice for some reason. I'm lost as of what to do, how much oil goes in it? Why is it coming out of this cap? Its does have a Oring but it looks fine. Its a 2014 Scout E2. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks
