Not sure where to put this topic, but since it is a safety issue, for me at least, here was as good as any.

Went riding today, and we had fewer riders, so I was solo in my Teryx 2 seater. I am a bigger guy, and in past always had a passenger.

As we shot a hill with some ruts, I was leaning to my side heavily, and with my belt on I could not lean to passenger side.

I ended up putting the teryx on its side, luckily it was a slow motion tilt, and I was not injured. Attempting the hill a few other times it nearly went over again.

I finally made it up the hill, and after that I noticed the issue a few other times on similar terrain.

I think adding a weight box to the passenger side either cut to floor board design and bolted in, or bolted under the passenger seat. Were I could load lead weights from my race car.

One of my buddies suggested -36 window fluid in passenger tires.

Anyone had any issues similar to mine.

I would think filling the tank before every ride would be good enough, maybe put all your cargo on the passenger side/storage.

Tank was full and I usually do not carry much gear.

Usually, this is done with spring preload. It you're familiar with racing, you've probably used scales for weight jacking, but you could just bump up the F&R preload on the driver's side until your ride is level with you in it.
