    ATV Gear: Always Bring a Tire Repair Kit and Air Compressor - 0

    I am amazed at how few trail riders I meet carry a spare tire or a repair kit. If you drive with any regularity on a mountain slope or a river bottom, a sharp rock or beaver stick will find a way into your tire. A spare is great if you have the room, but most situations can be remedied with a tire repair kit and a portable 12-volt air compressor.

    The compressor will get air in the tire to find the leak and fill it once the repair is made to get you back on the trail. Portable air is also your only hope if you hit a rock and blow a bead. [ Read Full Post ]

    Should You Buy Turf Saving Tires for Your ATV? - 0

    Owning an ATV or side by side is all fun and games until you make the mistake of running one with stock tires that have an aggressive tread across a lush green lawn. Factory tires on most machines will lift grass from the roots and damage expensive lawns.

    Getting a "turf friendly" tire can greatly reduced the damage caused by the machine — riding lawn mowers come with turf friendly tires for this very purpose. Many tire manufacturers have a selection of these tires, but you should hold off on getting them until you decide exactly how you will use your machine. Changing the tires on your ATV or SxS can be expensive. But having a lighter tread can be beneficial if you plan to use the machine for several different tasks or for maintaining a facility during the workweek. Sometimes staying off sensitive ground might be the cheapest way to enjoy your off-road machine. [ Read Full Post ]

    ATV First Look: 2014 Kawasaki Teryx4 LE - 0

    Only two years after its introduction, Kawasaki has made major updates to an already impressively performing machine with the launch of the 2014 Teryx4 LE. I got to test the new model in Utah’s Fishlake National Forest on the Paiute Trail, one of hardest, rockiest and most unforgiving trails in the country. The ride covered 152 miles in just two days with elevation changes ranging from 4,000 feet to just under 11,000.

    What's New
    The updates to the model include an increase in horsepower — from 749cc in the 2012 model to 783cc — and torque with dramatic fuel-economy improvements. The classic Kawasaki V-twin also received a revised piston crown, raising compression from 9.3:1 to 10.7:1. Mass has been added to the crank and the flywheel. A new cam and a retuned exhaust help the refined transmission ratios deliver a 7-plus percent increase in power with a 10 percent increase in torque. [ Read Full Post ]
