UTV Maintenance Tools

Even the highest quality UTVs will eventually need a little maintenance. There are plenty of tasks you can handle yourself with the right tools. We rounded up the essential side by side maintenance tools below. When you encounter a problem that requires professional help, enlist the services of the expert staff at Family Powersports San Angelo. We proudly serve those in Abilene, Texas.


This magic resource is found in plenty of workshops and homes across the country – and for good reason. It offers powerful support to help lubricate and clean problem areas. You can use the penetrating oil to help loosen screws that seem stubbornly stuck after you’ve already tried brute force and have been unable to move them. With the help of the wondrous WD-40, removing those screws is easy!

Test Light

This tool is helpful for any work on your UTV’s electrical equipment. It measures the electrical current before and after a connection. This helps you determine whether a connection is complete. Many of them cost under $20, so they are a budget-friendly option.


This tool helps measure electrical conductivity in different aspects of your side by side. You’ll get plenty of information such as resistance, amperage, and voltage readings. Use this data to help pinpoint where your electrical system is robbing you of valuable performance ability.

Tire Pressure Gauge

If your UTV tires have too high or too low of pressure, it can damage your tires or your side by side (or both). This simple tool allows you to measure the tire pressure. Then you can adjust it as needed if it doesn’t match the manufacturer’s recommendation.

Keep in mind that elevation changes can impact the pressure levels. If you are taking your side by side into the mountains, you will want to double check the tire pressure throughout your trip.

Tire Repair Kit

A side by side’s tires can encounter a host of issues that temporarily stop the riding, but don’t have to end the trip or call in the need for a replacement tire. A tire repair kit helps you fix the tires so you can get back onto the trail in no time. Look for one that offers CO2 cartridges, glue, patches, and plugs.

Air Compressor

This mighty tool helps you get your tires to the right air pressure levels. If you notice your tires are underinflated, use this to get them back to where they need to be. This tool can also be used on your other vehicles, making it a great multipurpose tool.

Tire Iron and Jack

Sometimes you may need to change or remove the tires on your side by side. This tool helps you loosen the lug nuts so that you can do it. A two-ton scissor jack can be folded so that it fits compactly on your UTV for easy storage.


Many parts found in and around your UTV engine are attached or regulated with screws. Get plenty of flathead and Phillips head screwdriver models in different sizes that match your screws. That way, you can loosen or tighten them as needed.

This list of tools will help you tackle a variety of UTV maintenance challenges. But eventually, you will run into something that’s beyond your ability. That’s where Family Powersports San Angelo comes into the picture. Our expert staff can do a full service or parts replacement on your side by side. It’ll be running like new before you know it. We also offer a range of UTVs for sale if you are looking to buy. We proudly serve those in Abilene, Big Spring, and Sonora, Texas.
