Ways To Improve Performance with ATV Accessories

Aug 18, 2007
All-Terrain Vehicles (also known as ATVs) attract the rugged outdoor sportsmen, the individualist and the risk taker. For that reason, the attraction of ATV accessories is a significant factor in extreme sports vehicle sales. The fact that ATV accessories help improve the performance of ATV's, is in direct correlation with the extensive variety of enhancements on the market today.

Some various ATV accessories include; aftermarket pipes, performance cams, high compression pistons, high-performance air filters, as well as many others.

Performance Enhancements

Whether the ATV you own is the typical four stroke or a two-stroke, an excellent method to boost your performance is by using performance piping. For most four stroke engines and all two-stroke engines the pipe that come stock can be updated with an aftermarket performance pipe. The performance difference can range from a 10 to 15 percent increase.

It is wise to take care and consideration in regards to the pipes that deal with the four stroke engine. Not all available on the market will increase performance but the ones that do work very well. The second best performance enhancement for the four stroke engine is a high-performance cam and a high compression piston.

Regardless of the type of engine, an alteration in the pipe requires a modification in jetting. If your ATV is designed to allow it, the airbox should also be changed to assist with the airflow as well.

Switching from a foam filter to a gauze filter can also give a better flow rate. Some skilled technicians think that gauze does not do as good a filtering job as compared to foam, and could result in the need for repairs. You must always keep the air filter clean and it should be changed each year. The foam filter has a tendency to dry out and the pleats for the Gauze filters can sometimes bend.

When it comes to cold winter, ATV accessories you can get would be heated handgrips and a snow plow attachment. If it is your intention to carry things quite often, you might want to pick up some zippered bags as well as a rack mounted hard cargo compartment. They are dustproof and water resistant and a lot more convenient than say bungee cords.

What are known as "Stick Stoppers" can be very useful to give protection to your rubber CV boots. If ripped, the boots allow the possibility for the CV joint to become damaged by debris. There can be a lot of wear and tear on tires when going over rough terrain.

Retail outlets that carry ATV accessories are likely to offer tires that have more resistance to punctures than your typical stock tires. You will also notice that there are taller tires as well that will allow for better ground clearance. If you use your ATV in muddy or wet conditions, you may have a need to buy a winch.
