Imagine you are having the time of your life driving along a riverbank in your UTV, or perhaps you are working up a storm using your UTV at work. Suddenly, you get a popped tire or the belt comes undone, and your whole ride is ruined as you have to wait for someone to help you. That is, if you don’t have the proper materials to fix it yourself. To make sure you can be self-sufficient and handle whatever problems come up, here is a guide to what UTV parts you should take with you on the trail.
These are perhaps the most common part to break down on a trip, which is unfortunate because they are very necessary to get anywhere. One of the best things you can do is carry around a spare tire to offset this problem. You will need to know how to change a tire as well to make full use of this tip, so we suggest learning that at some point. A plug kit and air pump can get you back home if the tire is just punctured. One way to avoid all these problems is to use a UTV track that is less susceptible to the same problems as a regular tire. You might need to get some UTV track parts to keep it running smoothly though.
A spare belt can be extremely useful for repairs if your UTV breaks its belt. Unlike a punctured tire, it is hard to repair a belt. You will most likely need to replace the belt with your spare before resuming travels. A set of pliers capable of fishing out any parts of the broken belt along with a belt replacement kit can really save the day. Be safe and cautious, as the belt area can be quite hot without proper care.
These few items can also be great for getting yourself out of a jam. A tow rope can help others get you where you need to go and can help others pull you out of any terrain if you get stuck. An adjustable wrench will give you access to a lot of the UTV, and so will a set of screwdrivers. Zip ties and duct tape will also save your hide more times than you can count, as they allow you to hold virtually anything together. Do not forget a flashlight as you don’t want to be stuck in the dark and it can even help you see the inner workings of the UTV during the day.
Now that you know what UTV parts you should take with you on the trail, you can rest easy. Ride with passion and work hard without worry, as you are now prepared to handle any problems that arise during your drives.
