Breaking in your rotors and pads, otherwise known as âbeddingâ, is a vital step to fully completing your new brake install. Bedding is the process of establishing a wear pattern between the brake pad and the rotor. The purpose of bedding your brakes is to ensure maximum efficiency, performance, and most importantly lifespan. If not done properly or at all, there is a laundry list of things that could go wrong; warping rotors, uneven pad wear, squealing, glazing the pads, and burning the pad face into the rotors. All of this can be prevented by following the steps below.
The one limiting factor to your UTV when attempting to make more power is the fuel system. More specifically, the fuel injectors max out their duty cycle and efficiency the moment you tune your machine. Due to the increase in boost pressure, fuel needs to be added to the mixture to even out the additional air produced by the turbocharger. The other disadvantage to the stock injectors is that they canât handle much more than 93 octane. Once ethanol is introduced to the mix, the stock injectors begin to break down since they are not capable of handling a higher ethanol content than 10% which is what pump gas contains.
Buying a UTV is an exciting endeavor because it presents so many opportunities for you. The destinations you can explore, the people youâll meet, and the modifications you can do are the first thing people think about. Eventually, after riding for a while, the machine will start to feel like itâs lacking in certain places and could use some upgrades. While the possibilities seem endless, there are limitations to a factory UTV and thatâs where installing aftermarket parts comes into play. It can be fairly difficult for a UTV owner to make the right choice on the first upgrades to do.
Your UTV is not putting out 100% of its power output which leaves owners with the task of unlocking the true potential. The most common way to increase the power output of your UTV is by tuning it. This method offers many benefits as there are a few variables that are affected when tuning your machine. Owners will often become used to the power and start to feel like the machine is slower which leads them to seek power upgrades.
