Ok when I get a new Maverick what has to be done to it right away??

I know everyone is saying the Tie rods first off, put new bolts on the seats. Check to see if you have the good or bad starter? So what else? there is no way I want to make any mistakes this time.. :)

So help me out here with your input?

before you ever take it out riding,you need 5pt harness' installed properly, which means secured to the frame!!

Is there a way to improve the seats so they don't come off so easily? Has someone made something to replace the cheesy way they are secured? I understand the harnesses are needed...but I'd still like to improve how well the seat its self is secured.

Exactly. I run my harnesses through the seat so the seat isn't coming out unless the harnesses fail - then everything is flying out, me included!

Harnesses are the first mod I do to every SXS I get. Obviously you had a bad experience with tie rods so that would be the other mod necessary. Maybe a front gusset kit, UHMW skid plate. It all depends where you ride & how hard you ride it.

Tie rods, gussets, harness bar and harness are a must in my book. Have the primary and secondary bolt torque checked and have fun.

So am I missing something here? What's the BFD about having a five point harness and the seats falling out? who has this happened to?

There was a picture somewhere here showing how little holds the seats in, I tried to find it earlier but could not. If that's really all holding them in, I have to say NOT F-ING COOL BRP. It's something that will be remedied for me, and I'd hope everyone that reads this thread has or will. There could be some serious injuries for people under the right (terrible) circumstances.

I think Devious Powersports can get you a better deal on harnesses. They are a vendor on this forum. PM them for a price.
