Can-Am Maverick X3 interiors have been cursed with plastic components all around. While it does save cost and weight, there are a few parts that certainly need to be replaced. The shift knob is a great place to start as the factory plastic shift knob is tiny and feels cheap in the hand. Itâs all about impressions, aesthetics, and feel but the factory piece does not cut it.
UTV interiors are very similar to a car but also very different. Being that the âcabâ of a UTV is nowhere near sealed, the materials used need to be able to withstand all weather conditions, mud, and sand. Because of this, there are not many creature comforts on the interior besides a cup holder and a glovebox, if youâre lucky.
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.
