Come visit Extreme Motor Sales at ATV Florida.

 

Types of ATVs to Buy

Four-Wheel Drive:
Unless you like sport quads, if you live in the northern climates where you experience long snowy winters, getting a four-wheel drive quad is recommended.
Four-wheel-drive quads offer you year-round use of the machine.
Four-wheel-drive quads can travel in as much as 12" of snow while the two-wheel-drives can't move at all in that kind of depth.

If you live in a snow-free environment, four-wheel-drive isn't absolutely necessary unless you frequent deep mud holes and swamps.
A four-wheel-drive adds an element of security when mudding through the backwoods far from home and makes for more controlled hill climbing and hill descending.
If you can swing the extra money, go for the four-wheel-drive.
If you ride moderate terrain our two-wheel drives are fine.

Sport Quad:
Sport quads are the fastest and lightest machines. They have two or four stroke engines that are highly tuned for maximum performance. They have either five or six gears with a manual clutch and most come equipped with reverse.
The gear ratios tend to be higher, meaning that the middle to upper part of the power band is where all the power is.

The long-travel suspension systems are dialed in to handle hard landings from jumps. Steering is quick and responsive.
Body plastic is small and getting muddy is a way of life for the sport quad rider. Racks are non-existent and viewed as excess weight for jumping purposes.
Weight is an important factor.
Sport quads are smaller than utility machines and take a little longer to learn how to ride. Most sport quads ATV's are 2 wheel drive and chain driven although we have new models that are available in SHAFT Drive.
Examples of sport quads are Yamaha's Banshee and Honda's 400EX. If you like fast trail riding and getting big air, this is the quad category for you. Sport quads offer riding fun in varying degrees. The more money and riding experience you have, the bigger machine you should get.


Automatic or Gear-Shifted
All of the manufacturers offer at least one quad with an automatic transmission. All of the automatic ATVs on the market (except Honda's Rubicon) are belt-driven. Automatic transmissions are nice to trail ride with and have been greatly improved over the last two years, but they don't offer engine compression braking to the degree that geared machines do. This is important when descending steep hills, as the engine compression is also holding you back rather than the brakes alone. If it's a downhill with small round boulders, brakes tend to lock up the tires easier than compression braking, which may cause a downhill slide--not a good situation. On the other hand, automatics are great for going up hills. There's no delay in downshifting like on geared machines and the transmission stays in the meat of the power band. Unless you want to be replacing belts, get a geared machine if you'll be frequently towing. Get the gears if you plan on a lot of utility-type work with the quad or routinely ride steep terrain. Get the automatic if you're not comfortable with all the shifting.

Extreme Motor Sales- Kids ATV's & Dirt Bikes

ATVs for Kids

Youth ATVs are designed for riders under the age of 18.
These vehicles are available in different sizes, each being equipped with the appropriate power level for specific age groups.
When choosing between Youth ATVs , take into consideration both the age of the rider and their experience with ATVs in general.
The size guidelines for ATVs for kids are as follows: for riders age 6 years and older-under 70cc, 12 years and older-70-90cc, 16 years and older-over 90cc.
Youth ATVs not only provide young riders with a source of fun and excitement, they also provide children the opportunity to learn how to ride a vehicle responsibly and skillfully. Remember that ATVs are not toys; riders under 16 should never ride unsupervised.
These vehicles can provide young riders a positive learning experience that they will never forget.

ATVs Terms
ATV (All Terrain Vehicle): Commonly known as a 4 wheeler or Quad. Also includes 3 wheelers.
CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission): A fully automatic transmission made up of two variable width pulleys and a belt.
Four-Stroke: An engine type with valves and cam(s) that produces combustion every four piston strokes.
Hydraulic Disc Brake: Stops the ATV by forcing brake fluid through lines when the brake lever is pulled. The fluid actuates the brake pads that contact a rotating rotor or disc to stop the ATV.
Independent Rear Suspension: This means each rear wheel is suspended and moves independent of the other.
Limited Slip: A type of differential which allows the wheels (front or rear) to spin at different speeds.
Mechanical Drum Brakes: Stops the quad when a brake lever is pulled which in turn pulls a cable which activate shoes that contact the interior of the drum.
Plastic: commonly refers to the body on an ATV.Quad: Alternative name for an ATV with 4 wheels.
Skidplates: Plates that protect the underside of your ATV.
Sport ATV: Generally refers to a 2WD ATV without cargo racks that is built for performance.
Sport/Utility or Utility: A 2WD or 4WD ATV with racks that is suited for limited sport riding and work related activities.
Swingarm: The pivoting support that connects the rear axle and shock absorber to the ATV frame.
Tear-Offs: Strips of clear plastic that are connected to your goggles. These should be removed when they become dirty.
Two-Stroke: A type of engine with valves and cam(s) that produces combustion every two piston strokes. The fuel used in this type of engine requires a gas and oil mixture.
Wheelbase: The distance from the center of the front wheel hub to the center of the rear wheel hub.
Whip or Flag: A long, flexible rod with a flag at the top.
Liquid Cooled: A radiator is used to cool off the engine with coolant, sometimes also OIL Cooled is used.
Air Cooled: A fan is used to cool off the engine.


Be sure to obey trail markers and closure signs at all times. There are several reasons why an area may be closed to ATVs including a fire hazard, refuge to wildlife or plant life, or safety hazards for ATV riders. The reasons may not be immediately obvious. If an area is posted as closed, stay out. Do your best to keep your ATV quiet. ATVs are designed to be reasonably quiet while still delivering high performance, smooth engine torque and spark suppression. Unnecessary noise stresses wildlife, and annoys other recreation users and property owners . Excessive noise contributes to your own riding fatigue which means the less noise you make, the farther you can ride comfortably. Before riding a trail, learn about the area you will ride in. Get maps of the area, and stay on trails if they are provided. You may want to contact the public land manager or private property owner to make certain that you are aware of area restrictions and have permission to ride there.

ATV Riding Guide for Kids, Teens, and Adults

Our ATV's & Dirt Bike's for kids provide great excitement for younger riders. Below, http://www.extrememotorsales.comoffers a helpful guide to riding our ATV's.
Do a pre-ride inspection before using an ATV. This inspection should include checking tires, throttle cable, front and rear brakes, lights and switches, oil and fuel, chain, and the chassis for any defects or wear.
• To turn an ATV, keep most of your body weight on the outside foot peg and lean your upper body into the turn.
• When climbing hills, shift your body weight forward by leaning to keep the front wheel(s) on the ground.
• If stopped while going uphill, do not apply the rear brake. Get off the machine and turn it around to proceed down the hill.
• When going down hills, keep the engine running and in gear, apply the rear brake and avoid sharp turns.
• Avoid “side hill” situations. When they are unavoidable, lean into the hill.
• As a last resort to avoid an impending collision, roll off the vehicle and kick yourself free of it.
• Do not allow extra riders on the ATV.
Below are more descriptive tips on how to ride your ATV through different types of terrains.

Crossing Obstacles:Often you'll have more success climbing over obstacles by approaching them straight on. This holds true for downed trees as well as some stair step hill climbing. With 4X4 ATV's, approach very slowly, and once the wheels are touching, give enough throttle to slowly crawl over the obstacle. When your front wheels pass over the obstacle, keep the momentum going so your rear tires will make it also. Or you may end up sitting on your skid plate, not being able to move forward or backward.

Don't go over a hill:Always climb straight up or straight down a hill. Never try to climb at an angle. And do not try to traverse a hill. Your ATV's weight and the spinning wheels can cause you to slide further sideways than you intended. Depending on the steepness of the slope, sliding sideways can cause an ATV to start rolling.

Stream Crossing:Cross streams as slowly as possible, creating the least amount of disturbance. Do not cross at speeds that will create "rooster-tails" of water. Always' determine the depth prior to crossing, and know how high your ATV's air intake snorkel is, and never drive up or down a stream. Driving up or down a stream needlessly stirs up dirt and silt, and disturbs the streams' ecology. Cross either at a 90 degree angle to the direction of the stream, or head slightly upstream.

Turning around:Never attempt to turn around on a steep narrow trail. If the terrain is unstable and your ATV gets sideways, there's a dangerous possibility that it could start rolling. If you fail to climb the hill, grab your brakes very hard immediately. If possible, put it in reverse, and let the engine compression and front brakes slow you while you back straight back down the hill.

Don't follow closely:When riding difficult terrain, don't follow the ATV in front of you too closely. If the terrain is challenging, the ATV in front of you may need to stop and back up. Sometimes the vehicle in front of you may even slide backward.

Be aware of what’s ahead:If at all possible, know what to expect from the trail you're riding on, and how difficult it is prior to you getting there. If you're not sure of the trail conditions, be prepared for the worst.

New Products: Shok-SpotR Helmet Shock Sensor

May 27, 2005 – Everyone knows that a hard knock to a helmet can damage it. But how do you know if your helmet has suffered a hard enough knock to compromise its ability to protect your head? REM Performance can help you out. The company is offering the new Shok-SpotR helmet impact sensor from Yorba Safety Concepts. It mounts on the outside of a helmet and lets you know if the helmet suffers a severe shock. Once the sensor turns red, indicating a severe impact, then it’s a good idea to have the helmet examined by its manufacturer for safety, or to buy a new one. Once the Shok-SpotR sensor turns red, indicating a severe impact, it can't be reset. Available in black or chrome, the Shok-SpotR sells for $19.95. For more info, contact REM Performance at (800) 514-1495, or visit www.shok-spotr.com. © 2005, All Terrain Vehicle Association

Parents Ask: What Size ATV or Dirt Bike Should My Kid Ride?

First of all, TRAIN your children! Work with them until they are comfortable, until YOU are comfortable. Remember that they are new to riding and that these are NOT Toys. Always use caution. Have fun but also be safe!

What size ATV your child should ride depends on how big they are, but typically an http://www.extrememotorsales.com/70.htm under 70cc is recommended for children between the ages of 6 and 12.
A reputable ATV dealer can help you answer the question "What size ATV should my kid ride" quite effectively. If you bring your child with you when you plan to purchase the child-size ATV, the dealer can help you assess the correct size for your kid by observing how the child measures up to the different sizes and styles of ATVs available.

It's never worth the risk of injury to save a few dollars on a cheaper size or model. Always buy the correct size for today.

Another equally important question than "What size ATV should my child ride?" is "What protective ATV gear should my kids wear?" http://www.extrememotorsales.com/sizechart.htm

Proper ATV Riding Apparel. What to wear?

http://www.extrememotorsales.com
When it comes to what is proper ATV riding apparel, there are six distinct areas to consider. Here, we address the basics for what you need to know about proper ATV riding apparel:

What is proper ATV riding apparel for my head?
You need a proper ATV riding helmet that has been certified for safety. This helmet will include a face visor to protect your face and an inner liner to absorb shock impact. Make sure your helmet fits you properly so it won't slip off while riding. It should fit snug, but not too tight. To view our sizing chart go to http://www.extrememotorsales.com/sizechart.htm

What is proper ATV riding apparel for my body?
When you ride your ATV, you should wear a long sleeved shirt and long pants to protect your skin from flying debris or from scrapes if you endure a fall. Long sleeves and long pants also protect against sunburns. Wearing brightly colored clothing also helps, as you can be seen from far away.http://www.extrememotorsales.com/clothing.htm#jersey. It is our highest recommendation that all children who ride, be required to wear a CHEST Protector. This as well as a helmet is by far the most life saving gear to wear! Be smart! Be protected!

What is proper ATV riding apparel for my hands?Always wear rugged ATV gloves. They give you a firmer, more secure grip on the handle bars and controls of your ATV. They also protect the skin on your hands in the event of a fall and from flying debris.

What is proper ATV riding apparel for my feet?
Boots with low heels that fit over your calf are the best choice, as they keep your feet from slipping off the footrests, even if it's raining and slick. You don't have to buy special ATV boots, but make sure the ones you pick are sturdy.
