In an increasingly digital age, websites that sell aftermarket parts, tools, and accessories for UTVs and side-by-sides have gained notoriety. And as far as prominence goes, no other site is more distinguished, more trusted, or more frequently patronized than Everything Yamaha Offroad! This, mind you, didn’t happen out of nowhere, and there is a rationale behind it. Riders continue to shop at Everything Yamaha Offroad because we offer greater options than the competition at lower prices. Compared to other online sellers of aftermarket side-by-side accessories, Everything Yamaha Offroad has a huge lead due to factors like fast shipping times, excellent return policies, and unmatched customer service. And when juxtaposed against traditional brick-and-mortar UTV part retailers, this difference in price and service is even starker.
If we were to guess, we’d wager that most of the salesmen at your local Yamaha dealership are probably not mechanics; and if you look at the incentive structure, the likelihood of them trying to upsell or convince you to buy parts and accessories that are overpriced or outright unnecessary goes up. Plus, why would you restrict yourself to factory Yamaha Viking parts & accessories, stock Yamaha Wolverine parts & accessories, or OEM Yamaha YXZ parts & accessories when there are more options, better options, and commensurate options at cheaper prices available from the aftermarket? Most folks wouldn’t, and that’s why most folks come to Everything Yamaha Offroad for all of their Yamaha UTV needs!
Although they didn’t release a turbocharged YXZ, a 4-door YXZ, or a 72” YXZ, they did make a few changes to their 2023 Yamaha lineup – namely, new graphics and price increases. Things like locking radiator tabs, “auto door hold” springs, and extra driver’s side seat pins might be included in the 2023 Yamaha YXZ, but we’ll have to wait and see on those. As far as the 2023 Yamaha Wolverine and 2023 Yamaha Viking are concerned, colors are the only thing that changed since 2022. This might be disappointing to some, but we reckon that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Besides, you don’t have to take it or leave it, because with aftermarket parts and accessories from places like Everything Yamaha Offroad, you can augment, modify, and customize your 2022 Yamaha side-by-side in any way imaginable!
Be it the sporty 2022 Yamaha Wolverine RMAX2 1000 XR-T with 14” beadlock rims, a built-in SSV stereo system, and dual-rate springs, or the bold new look of the 2022 Yamaha Viking Ranch Edition, Yamaha’s 2022 UTV lineup is pretty darn decent to say the least. For family fun or off-road adventures with the squad, four-door Yamaha UTVs like the 2022 RMAX4 and 2022 Yamaha Wolverine X4 X-RT offer huge cabins with ample legroom and myriad storage options. And for riders who are particular about looks and style, the new color / camo options on the 2022 Yamaha Viking VI are on point!
2021 was a big year for Yamaha, as their RMAX side-by-side won UTV Action Mag’s 2021 UTV of the year. Additionally in 2021, suspension upgrades were made to the 2021 Yamaha YXZ 1000R. It now comes from the factory with fully-adjustable 2.5 Podium RC2 FOX shocks. These shocks allow riders to fine-tune parameters like spring preloads, shock rebound rates, and compression dampening.
Aside from the “Tactical Green” color option for the Yamaha Viking that’s slightly lighter than the army green of the previous year, the 2021 Yamaha Viking is almost identical to the 2020 Yamaha Viking. The Yamaha Wolverine lineup, on the other hand, gained an entire new vehicle in the form of the Yamaha Wolverine RMAX. Compared to the 850cc Yamaha Wolverine X2 R-Spec, the RMAX has an engine displacement of nearly 1000 cubic centimeters – which means greater power and faster top speeds! The 2021 XT-R editions of the Yamaha Wolverine also come with more accessoires, such as a winch, rear fenders, and blue interior lights!
