Just like any motorized vehicle, an ATV has hundreds of components that make it work properly. You are responsible for the upkeep of your vehicle so it is important to understand what you are doing. You may think an ATV is pretty invincible, but neglecting to take care of it will prove otherwise.
One problem you might run into with and ATV is getting debris stuck in between your tire and the rim. This usually happens more often when you have low tire pressure. Just make sure to clean this out, so it doesn’t ruin your rims or give you a flat tire.
One can also get caught in other area including up near your ATV shocks. You don’t want it to damage the ATV shocks or any other part of your ATV so make sure this is also clean. Your ATV shocks are an essential part of your ATV so you want to take extra care of them.
You also want to make sure and double check your cables before going out to ride. You don’t want to end up stuck in the middle of nowhere with a big heavy vehicle. Make sure your cables aren’t fraying or disconnected and keep them free of debris as well.
Loading your ATV can cause a lot of serious problems. Most people load with loading ramps. These ramps need to be secured to the truck or trailer so you don’t end up falling backwards in your ATV. Many people don’t bother securing their ramps out of laziness but you don’t want someone to end up getting hurt.
The vent lines in your ATV are what brings the fuel to the engine. Sometimes dirt and grime can build up so much that it clogs the whole vent. If this has happened you will need to take the time to clean them out.
Using the right fuel is very important. Many people think that putting high octane fuel into their engine will increase the performance. This is not true. High octane fuel is meant for high-compression motors. If you put it into a stock motor, it will actually slow your vehicle down and could harm the engine.
