When you get that brand new dealer fresh quad off the show room floor there is nothing that runs better and nothing that looks better. But over time both looks and performance are degraded to a point where a very brave buddy speaks up to tell you what a chunk of garbage you have and may not realize it.
Instead of sending a fist your friend’s way, we suggest you address the problem. In most cases, it won’t cost you much to get your ATV or UTV back in shape.
We have put together a list of 10 items that can not only help improve the performance of your machine but it may help it look better while lasting longer to boot!
Some of these tips may not be scripture in your book of riding, but if you fail to take even the cheap checkups you could wind up walking or pushing that heavy beast instead of riding it. Get too it!
1. Clean It Good
Cleaning a machine regularly will not only keep it looking sweet but it will help make visible any points of interest should the breakable parts begin to fall off. Knock off the heavy mud or dirt before hitting the quad with the hose. We use a product called Super Clean. It can be diluted into a three-gallon pump sprayer and literally just needs to be sprayed on and hosed off. Great stuff.
