When Yamaha jumped into the pure Sport UTV scene, we all knew it was going to be good and different from everything else on the market at the time. But what if you wanted to make your Yamaha YXZ1000R faster? We can help.

When it unveiled the YXZ1000R, it brought back memories of the Yamaha Banshee back in late 1986. It made sense to go with a big triple-cylinder powerplant as Yamaha already had an amazing engine in its snowmobile lineup and the YXZ did not disappoint.

So jump ahead to today and there are lots of YXZs rolling off showroom floors and onto the trails and dunes. Owners are loving the shifting and handling of the machine and it’s already proving itself in competition. But let’s face it – Sport UTV riders are all about speed … hot, nasty, bad-to-the-bone speed. The good news is that if you want to make the Yamaha YXZ1000R faster, there are plenty of ways to do just that.

It may not be the sexy pick, but clean air is a huge boost to performance, especially if you ride in dusty conditions.

This system keeps clean air going into your engine so you get the maximum performance you can get.
