This particular Yamaha is extremely
comfortable and secure feeling.
Everything in the cockpit feels
completely dialed in. We don’t usually
get excited about steering wheels, but
the NRG wheel is really nice. We like
all the controls, but the Rekluse clutch
is certainly the star here.
After the Rekluse, the ZBroz
suspension grabs your attention. This
is an extremely smooth-riding car. We
had a high-end Polaris four-seater
along, and the suspension always feels
amazing on those long-wheelbase
cars, but the Yamaha was every bit as
smooth over the rough and chop.
(Left) Carle had nothing but praise for
the Simpson seats and harness-type
seat belts. We have to agree with his
evaluation. This is a comfortable and
effective cockpit to spend miles in.
Owner Brian Carle selected a Trinity
exhaust to aid the YXZ power. The
ZBroz Racing suspension mods give
the machine an amazingly smooth
ride in the rough.
Anticipating hard use in Arizona, Nevada
and Utah, Carle upgraded to 8-ball
heavy-duty axles. Pivot Works sells all
sorts of axle and suspension- related UTV
parts at reasonable prices.
Between the Baja Designs LED stock
headlight replacements and these
LED pod lights mounted to the cage,
Carle feels he has as much light
coverage as a light bar would offer.
A Rekluse auto
so much nicer
when you are
doing slow and
cannot stall the
car, and that is
