    Looking for how to suggestions on adding a parking brake to their sxs? I have a Stampede X and while I love it so far it has no parking brake, any help would be appreciated.

    Yup. What Ron and Paul said. I have one and it’s excellent. I did an install video and overview a little while back. You will definitely need to call though. I only see one listed for the arctic cat wild cats and the textron xx for now. That doesn’t mean there isn’t something in the works though.

    Here ya go.

    Yup, spring brake thingy here too. It's super nice when parking on a incline so the machine doesn't get bound up in gear. Also a nice aid for loaded on the trailer.

    A word of caution tho, if you set the brake when your brakes are hot, they will cool, and loosen, and if your machine isn't it park, it will roll.

    You can weld an extra 1/8" or thicker to the device I guess, or option B, something like this :

    I just put the Spring Brake Thingy on my XP 1000. Works great and less than 2 minute install.
