Engines need 3 things to run properly: Air, fuel, and spark. Pretty simple, right?

It is fairly simple, but if one of those 3 essentials isn’t present or one or more of them isn’t in balance, then you have problems…

Case in point, your air filter is the first defense for providing clean air to your engine. This clean air is essential for any engine to run properly. Any spec of dirt can produce harmful and detrimental effects to your engine.

Introductory Note: Much of the perceived confusion among battery users of all types, and in particular for power sports enthusiasts, is largely due to the wide variety of construction methods used in making lead acid batteries. Although for the most part, the electro- chemical workings of these differently constructed lead acid batteries is very similar, manufacturers recommend that these batteries be used in different applications and that they be charged by slightly different methods.

PLANNING AHEAD FOR YOUR ATV TRIP AND KNOWING THE RULES AND REGS
How to have a safe and fun ride without any troubles

Responsible ATV riders generally don’t get themselves into situations that involve the words “search parties” and “rescue crews.” They avoid those scenarios by following the tips listed here:
•    Ride with a partner. It is really hard to ride an ATV with a broken arm! Riding solo can leave you vulnerable in case of an accident or breakdown.
•    Check that your OHV is in proper working condition, all fluids are topped off, and there are no loose or broken parts.

FREEDOM TO EXPLORE

Physically disabled riders find ATVs to be “the great equalizer”

For many physically disabled people, the quest for outdoor recreation is just as strong as it is for able-bodied folks. Avid hunters, fishermen, archers, snow skiers, and snowmobilers don't allow their various disabilities to stand in the way of their favorite outdoor sports. In fact, many clubs and organizations for disabled people offer a calendar of events filled with outdoor experiences. Adaptive Sportsmen

KIDS AND ATVs
Getting Them Started Right


Off-road riding is a great family activity. It’s a chance for young people to learn new skills and develop self-confidence, and parents find exploring the out-of-doors a wonderful way to spend time with their kids. Along with the fun and adventure, off-roading involves special responsibilities for parents and young people. Even the smallest ATV is relatively heavy and should be respected and never treated like a toy.

Basically, two of the worst-case scenarios for ATV riders are A) having an accident during a ride, or B) seeing your favorite riding areas get shut down. The first one leaves you at best with bumps and bruises on your body and machine, while the other results in your beloved quad on the front lawn with a big For Sale sign on the handlebars. Both of these sorry situations appear to be out of your control. Or are they?

We took a close look at helmets in {include_title_only_href 224}, the single most important piece of riding gear every ATV rider should have. Now we’ll discuss what to look for when purchasing goggles, gloves, and riding boots.

When it comes to helmets, the decision to wear one can be a matter of life or death in the event of a bad spill. So obviously a helmet is the single most important piece of riding gear an OHV enthusiast can wear. Those of us who always wear helmets often wonder what the problem is with folks who refuse to do so. Modern helmets are actually very comfortable and lightweight, providing the rider with a lot of confidence and protection from the elements. Many off-road helmets are also vented, so getting too hot is no longer a valid excuse for not wearing one. Of course, if you happen to be riding in an area where it’s against the law to ride without a helmet, well you aren’t going to have a choice!

Over the past couple of decades, ATVs have embedded themselves deep into the outdoorsmen’s culture, including hunting and fishing. However, the use of ATVs by some outdoorsman has created controversy, and it usually is the result of riders not following common-sense courtesy rules.

Over the past couple of decades, ATVs have embedded themselves deep into the hunting culture. They’ve become such an important tool that many hunters now wonder how they ever got along without them. However, the use of ATVs by hunters has also sparked up controversy, and it usually is the result of some riders not following common-sense courtesy rules or fair-chase procedures.

When you are shopping for a shock absorber upgrade, you need to begin by determining your specific needs. Ask yourself questions like “Where will I ride? What performance and comfort levels am I looking for? What kind of terrain will I ride? What adjustment options do I need?” Answers to these simple questions will guide your sales representative toward the perfect set-up for you.

Why choose synthetic lubricants for your ATV?  The answer is easy: You want to get the most out of your quad, so naturally you want to put the best oil possible into it.

Whether you have a four-wheeler, dirt bike, side-by-side, or a truck to take you off-road, maintenance is the key to getting many years of enjoyment out of your ATV. An amazing fact is that many people never (I mean never) do any regular maintenance on their ATVs.

After making the intial purchase of an ATV, the next thing most people do is make some modifications to their ride. There are different reasons for these changes, but you can narrow it down to performance and usability. Some of these "mods" increase speed while others just insure you will continue to make it down the track or trail.

With the number of all-terrain vehicle riders climbing past 16 million nationally, the sport of ATV riding is grabbing attention as land managers try to balance its popularity with the country’s natural resources. “ATV riding can be a blast,” said Patti Klein, National Stewardship Coordinator for the Bureau of Land Management. “But it can also be damaging to public lands if not done responsibly. As land managers, we encourage people to help protect the great outdoors by riding responsibly and practicing outdoor ethics, like those created by Tread Lightly!." Tread Lightly!, a nonprofit organization that educates people to recreate responsibly, has issued some practical tips on minimizing the impact of ATVs on the environment.
