      Lost a center hub cap on the trail the other day. Who has a good source? I bought one from MotorcycleDoctor last year but now he wants $20 for ONE. I looked up the Yamaha Rhino ones and they don't look like they fit: the four tabs aren't there.
       
      TIA.

      It has done this since day one that we purchased it from Tractor Supply. I contacted the service man that Tractor Supply recommended and he told us that there wasn't anything he do to help us with. Has anyone had this same problem and can offer suggestion on to correct this issue ? It would be greatly appreciated.

      High-Quality Semi-Custom-Fit UTV Covers With a Great Value
      Utility Terrain Vehicles were designed as an alternative to ATVs. A UTV can also be referred to as an SxS (Side-by-Side) because it allows the driver and passenger to be seated next to each other. A UTV can carry more passengers when compared to an ATV. These vehicles usually have four wheels, but some models can have up to six wheels and can carry up to six passengers with bench seating.
      UTVs are extremely popular among avid campers and hunters. They perform heavy-duty work that makes them suitable for both work and recreation activities. These versatile vehicles allow you to plan a great weekend with friends and family because of their increased capacity and capabilities. Unlike an ATV, you don’t need three vehicles and three operators to transport six people.
      UTVs can be expensive, but their tremendous value makes them a prime investment. If you own one, you need to understand that it may be a heavy-duty vehicle, but it may not last long without proper care. A Seal Skin UTV cover can effectively protect your investment against destructive elements.
      Why Choose a Seal Skin Cover for Your Prime Investment?
      UTVs are designed in such a way that they can withstand almost anything; however, constant exposure to harmful UV rays, rain, snow, and debris can affect your UTV in several ways.
      If your vehicle is parked outside during sunny days, prolonged exposure to the sun can cause the paint to fade and also cause damage to the seats, grips, and cables. Rainy days can be equally bad for your vehicle. Excessive rains can cause corrosion and condensation inside your gas tank.
      If you are fortunate enough to own a garage, you need to understand that even small particles such as dirt, dust, and insect frass can scratch the exterior finish and cause considerable damage over time. Unless your garage is air-tight and temperature-regulated, dust, pollen, and moisture can still get in and wreak havoc on your vehicle.
      At Seal Skin, we offer one of the best UTV covers on the market for both indoor and outdoor storage.
      How Our Brand Exceeds Customers’ Expectations
      We only use top-quality materials and enforce strict manufacturing standards to ensure that our products exceed your expectations. It is important for you to purchase a cover that fits well to keep out water, heat, and other elements, otherwise, dampness can creep into the smallest cracks.
      Our semi-custom-fit covers are altered for each model. They also have a full elastic hem that provides an ideal fit. Word of mouth is extremely powerful. We believe that when a satisfied customer spreads the word about our incredible products and service, that is the best advertising we can have. Keeping this in mind, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee with every purchase.
      A Seal Skin Cover Is as Versatile as Your UTV
      Seal Skin UTV covers offer many benefits that you can consider before purchasing them. Seal Skin covers ensure water resistance as the reinforced seams of our covers are ultrasonically welded. Even though our covers ensure a snug fit, they still provide enough ventilation. This ensures that water is not trapped in the cover leading to unwanted mold. The vented openings provide breathable space and prevent mold and mildew by allowing water-resistant material to shed moisture. For many garage owners, fluctuating temperatures due to poor insulation is a big headache. The multiple layers of our synthetic fabric Seal Skin cover provide a shield from the considerable damage that can be caused by sudden changes in temperature. Seal Skin covers include advanced UV inhibitors that act as a reflective layer to bounce off the heat and harmful UV rays. The outer durable layer of a Seal Skin cover provides water and tear resistance. The soft inner layer and the non-metallic grommets protect the finish from any kind of scratches. UTVs appeal to a wider audience because of their ability to carry more passengers and also because they provide great safety features. UTVs are expensive and if you own one, then you need to give them the protection they deserve. Luckily, maintaining your UTV in pristine condition does not require you to shell out a fortune.
      Having a UTV comes with many responsibilities and challenges, and proper preservation is extremely significant. Wrapping your UTV with a suitable cover when it is not in use will ensure that it stays in a stainless situation. Our Seal Skin UTV covers are not just an important accessory but also a great alternative to protect your investment, satisfaction, and happiness.

      So, I have found a very possible and very interesting engine swap after looking for quite awhileBTW I am still looking and researching. I present to you the 1.4L cylinder out of a Chevy Cruze.
      Let me first caveat this by saying I have NO problem with my Chery engine. But it seems to have only so much potential and there is not enough technical support and R&D out there. Considering there are thousands and thousands of Chery 1100s out in the world (mostly in other countries) we should have WAY more options than we do.
      The problem I DO have with the Chery 1100 is the transmission it is bolted too. Even if you BORE, Supercharge, Nitrous this engine the tranny just too weak. I would be more inclined to do motor work if there was a stronger gearbox we could strap to it. My experience has shown me the output shaft is weakthats a stock motor. If you power it up what is next to goprobably clutches.
      NOW--Why the 1.4L turbo out of a Chevy Cruze?
      ITS AN ECOTEC!
      They are plentiful (fleet car motor) and can be had for relatively cheap ($500-$2000 depending on condition and if it comes with or without the turbo).
      They are compact and lightweight--all aluminum block and cylinder head.
      They are decently powered (138hp) and even better torque (148 ft/lbs)!!! Most smaller engines, to include ATV/UTV gas powered engines, the hp numbers are always higher than torque numbers. I care about TORQUE! In this case torque is the king over hp and it peaks at 2500 rpm!!! This motor was specifically designed to produce low to mid-range torque.
      Also, keep in mind factory engines are designed to be economical. This engine could be easily tuned or a bigger turbo installed to go well over 200 hp.
      Now, the most IMPORTANT partputting the power to the ground:
      The stock Cruze comes with either a six speed manual or an automatic/hydramatic six speedwith manual shift capability!!! Now, I know what you are thinking. We need a low first gear. Now, I cant find anything online about the Troopers first gear ratio. I called Joyner and I am waiting for a call back. If anyone knows please post. My best guess is its around 5:1???
      More intriguingfirst gear in the manual of the Chevy Cruze is 4.27 which is quite low in comparison to most cars being in the 3:1 range. EVEN BETTER the automatic comes with a first gear ratio of 4.58 to one. That is the lowest factory first gear ratio I have found in any FWD 4 cylinder car so far. If you know of one lower please share. Now that may not be low enough for us, but when you keep in mind WE ARE DOUBLING OUR TORQUE it should offset the need for a granny gear. Last, it comes with the manual shift option. This means you can just push the lever forward to shift and back to downshiftNO CLUTCH!
      Now this is just a birds eye view of this potentially sweet drivetrain swap. Outside of the normal custom intake/exhaust, mounts, rewiring of any engine swap here are some of the bigger things that need to be figured out/answered:
      How do we lock up the differential in the gearbox differential like the trooper is? The trooper has basically a spool (fully locked). In RWD buggies Joyner turns the motor and tranny 90 degrees and opens the differential (I hear some models are full locked).
      How would auto/hydramatic transmission handle the stress of offroad?
      Will technology get in the way of making things simple? Nowadays if you disconnect a seat belt sensor the car wont start (exaggerating herea little). How hard will it be to simplify the ignition system and get the electronics for the transmission of in harmony?
      Interested to hear your guys thoughts and concerns
