It occurred to me I don’t have, or need, a thread on my SxS... but I’m going to post one anyway.

Back in 2016 I bought a new Yamaha Wolverine R spec side by side.
Here she is in all her showroom glory...
41993


It’s been a while so I’m not going to try to remember what order I did the upgrade in. I’m just going to list what I’ve done so far:
2” lift
28” tires (Kenda Bearclaw HTRs)
14” rims
3500 lb winch
YXZ1000 seats
YXZ1000 steering wheel
Fold down windshield
Front and rear 2” LED pod lights
Custom snorkels
Upgraded SPAL rad fan
Ricochet aluminum A arm guards
Custom switch panel
EHS Racing fuel tuner
LED underdash lights
I’m sure there’s more I can’t think of.


Here’s a current pic...
41994


Switch panel:
41997


I have a few things I’ve haven’t installed yet:
Led whips
LED rock lights


Future plans:
Barkers twin exhaust system (ordered today. $900)
SuperATV portal lift ($2900)
31” tires on different 14” rims (the current tire and rims are going on my quad.)

Turbo???? (Trying to find info on a kit.)

The girl is in the wrong seat. I hope you've rectified that by now.

I got my Barkers dual exhaust system on today...

I had to remove a brace that came with my lift kit... 2 aftermarket parts can’t occupy the same space.
I’ll make up a new one on Monday at work.

I'm glad I haven't caught the side by side fever... Sure wouldn't take much to convince me that I NEED one. I've towed buggies all over to use them... when I'm in the right place and can use it straight out of the garage...

I would like a one to use for work around the property and so the wife can bomb around in it.

They so do make a ton of aftermarket stuff...

These are small enough to be registered as an atv in a lot of states, and would be my #1 choice over a SxS.

Only because I'm Wierd and love little stupid kei teucks.. And I'm cheap..

Back on topic though, nice rig. I really appreciate that it's a Yamaha.. All I see around here are rzr's and it gets boring -_-

I’ve alway found those little trucks cool looking, I’ve never driven one.
I wouldn’t buy a Polaris. (Trying to be nice here.) They tend to cost a lot of money in repairs.

I really wanted portals for my sportsman...till i seen the price.

Damn thing dont stay togther long enough to make it out where id need them anyways
I hear ya on the price. I joined a RZR forum to get 10% off... Even with $300 off I still stared at the screen for a minute or 2 before pushing the “complete transaction” button.

The older Sportsman is usually a reliable machine. You have a Sportsman 500, right?



BUT LOOK AT THAT GROUND CLEARANCE!!
