How to Choose Left or Right UTV Parts

When it comes to searching for UTV parts, we know how confusing left and right can be. (I mean, let’s be honest here. Some of us were well into adulthood before we figured out which hand is which.)

To make matters more confusing, we as a species can’t even agree on what side of the road to drive on.

As our inventory started to expand, we found that we were in need of a standardized system. One that would be easy to relay to our customers and our staff. And so, we developed the Scooter’s Powersports Pro Tips for Left vs Right UTV Parts*.

*Capitalized to sound more official than it really is…

Stand Behind Everything But a Manure Truck

Rather than trying to do some sort of thought experiment, stand your UTV. As long as you are standing BEHIND the UTV, you should have no problem determining left and right.

Whenever Possible, We List Parts as Driver or Passenger

We’ve sold countless parts to people all around the globe. (Shameless self-promotion: We’re actually the largest online retailer for ODES parts. Woop woop.) Sometimes the manure truck analogy doesn’t work quite as well. That’s why whenever possible, we try to list UTV parts as “driver side” or “passenger side.”

Since we’re located in the United States, 98% of our customer base drives on the right side of the road. This is also the same format that ODES Industries uses when describing their parts. To avoid as much confusion as possible, we use the US versions of “driver side” and “passenger side.”

If you’re outside of the US, don’t fret! Keep in mind, most UTVS are for offroad use anyway. Since ODES Industries only produces vehicles with the driver on the left, our version of “driver side” and “passenger side” will still apply to your UTV. No matter where you are in the world, you will still stand behind your ODES to determine left vs. right.

When In Doubt, Contact Us

We never want to sell you UTV parts you don’t need. If you’re ever in doubt, make sure to contact us us before placing your order. We’re happy to assist with any questions you may have about your order.
