    How to Clean Your UTV




    Five steps to a cleaner UTV


    Unlike some folks who buy a cool off-road vehicle like a Jeep or a truck, but then they never take it off road to avoid getting it dirty, UTV drivers donít have that issue. We like to get dirty. Most of us donít swerve to miss a mud pit and for most, the thought of coming home with clean clothes and a spotless machine means we didnít go riding at all. However, it pays to know how to clean your UTV properly.


    At the end of the day, a cleaner machine is going to last longer, so you eventually need to get the grime off. That means youíre going to have to clean it. Luckily there are some great products out there to help you with these simple steps to a cleaner UTV. Remember a few basics before you get to cleaning. Make sure the air intake is sealed off from water getting into the airbox. Make sure your exhaust is plugged from getting water in as well. And make sure any electrical or fuel components are securely away from water as well. Itíll just save you a few headaches. Now, about that mudÖ

    This^^^

    I'm brand new to SxS, but in our Jeeps we try to exit the trails near some water to run through a few times to get some of the mud out from underneath, the brakes, etc.

    I had to laugh a little about using a pressure washer when you have to get every bit of mud out. After getting buried in a mud hole, not even a fire hose gets all of it out in my experience.
