Chandler, AZ, November 18, 2015 —There is no question that the Yamaha YXZ 1000R is a game changer! From the 998cc triple to the 5-speed sequential close ratio transmission, this machine lives up to its billing as the first “Pure Sports” Side-X-Side ever produced. But for such a purpose-built weapon, DragonFire did find it curious that simple 3-point automotive style lap belt — with no padding — was utilized! For a machine that is intended to be race-ready the lack of proper restraints is problematic… not to mention illegal in many sanctioned competition events!
If you are planning to run proper 4-point harnesses (or DragonFire’s SFI-approved 5-point full competition harness) you will need our new harness mounting hardware before you can go anywhere! This Lap Belt Mounting Kit for the Yamaha YXZ 1000R will allow you to properly mount harness restraints.
“Yamaha’s OEM cage is set up to mount car-style lap belts rather than real restraints,” says DragonFire’s Social Media Manager Chris Moore. “With that in mind, we put this kit together to give you an all inclusive and simple solution to mount 4-point or 5-point harnesses in this otherwise race-ready machine.”
* Kit includes 2 bolt-in tabs for lap belts and all necessary mounting hardware
* Suitable for 2″ or 3″ Harnesses
* Class 8.8 hardware included for superior strength
* 1 kit will outfit 2 seats
