Crawlers and frame twisters-HELP

I'm runnin' a stock 07 Rhino except deep rims/tires and CDI...

Don't plan on gettin' there fast, but I like to climb and shove my ride into small spaces, and I'm lookin' for advice in general on that type of riding.

Long travel is out, cuz I dont want the width, or stiff turning, but wouldn't rule out shorter mid travel........

Any suggestions on starter upgrades for improved low end torque?
What kind of spare parts/stuff should I carry for common, in-field repairs/patch up?

Thanks in advance!

Now that you have the CDI the nexed thing would be clutch there is a lot out there UTV Crap or KMS. would give you a littel more and a ron woods would realy help and still be quiet but a lot more power

We started carrying tire plugs recently after seeing rich's tire mishap, And a lighter plug air thingy nothing big all fits under the seat probably a good idea i have seen where you go with that ride!
The spare tire that jb was mounting looked pretty cool too
We have the cdi also and want to do the clutch also so you do it and let us try yours

Thanks for the input!

Planned on a new clutch for sure, and possibly a cam like my brothers. I don't care if I lose top end.... Just hafta get outta that wedge i cram myself into. I need to call Cameron too about what he did with his clutch to make it grab better.

Barb- I have a compressor for the train horn already, remember? Guess I'll have to give you a refresher at Gorman on the 14th.... ......... I planned on rigging up a separate line to air up in case of a flat. The other stuff is a given.

Hopin' to avoid learning the hard way.....I know John (Turarhino- KR) has a lot of good info on what fixit stuff to carry..

Well gosh i am not sure if i remember the horn?????? WAIT! is that the one that sneaks up on me several times a trip and scares the shit out of me? That horn???

I didn't know you could use it that way, We have a tool bag with some small tools in it as well but i think the best thing we carry is the tire plugs oh and the tow strap but i think you got one from JB too?

We have lots of issues with our stock exhaust but have heard change it out /Don't change it out i like it cuz everyone knows thats my rhino! That and it annoys people, But it wont stay fixed so gotta do something.

Reguarding the air horn pump: I just recieved a air horn kit but have yet to install it. i was plaing to use a 3 way valve to use it to air up tires ,I'm pretty sure the supplied pump will set beads.... however I have my doubts as to weather or not it will build enough pressure to seat them completly I don't know probably should try it before you rely on it.

I'll have a spare or two handy when I decide to venture out, but my main goal will be damage control in the field.

I get about 150psi on my tank, but yeah I'm not sure I'll have the available volume needed to seat tires. It'll be used mostly for airing up after puncture repair, and lettin' everyone know I'm still in the pack . I'll have tie downs to assist with the seating of the beads.

Thanks for keepin' the ideas coming!

IF you run a air compressor alto more than likely you will burn up your stator as a good fix would be a better battery utv crap has them...
