Been looking for a SxS to run around in the desert southwest. This 2016 Yxz1000r EPS came up for sale, pulled the trigger, now I'm a Yxz owner.
Been desert riding over 30 yrs but not in SxS, so I'm here to learn.
Mostly stock, a few add on, light bar, whips and windshield. Have harness on order. I'm sure more to come.

clean rig! i would start looking at cages as well, unfortunately there are a TON of stories of how weak the factory YXZ cage is (no triangulation and very weak tubing at .061). doesnt take much to go from "not that bad" to a hospital visit. most crashes happen under 30mph

Hey riverandsand, good score! Looks well kept.
I’m in Yuma all winter, so let’s ride!
And as thesandaddict mentioned, get yourself a nice cage for “just in case”.
Just welded up an LSK for mine and couldn’t be more pleased with the fitment.
Sandaddict will hook you up!

Sounds like a plan, won't be in Yuma til late Sept.
I don't have a welder so, a weld up cage is problematic.
I did install harnesses which made a big difference.

Very Nice Ride! Enjoy it and the fun you'll have accessorizing it! The sand is the natural environment for the YXZ. I grew a whole new appreciation for mine when I took it to St. Anthony, ID Sand Dunes. 3rd Gear most of the time 4wd, (no paddles at the time) what a blast! Oh I need to remember the Dramamine for the dunes, eventually it will get to me if you know what I mean lol.
