DRIVING TIPS FOR ATV / QUAD

Are you going to drive an ATV or a quad bike? While leaving route, we have to face many obstacles. Therefore, we leave some tips:

Barriers to obstacles, like a fallen branch, a narrow passage, large stones. It is appropriate to take the first passes calmly. It is important to know how our vehicle behaves in adverse conditions. as we gain experience and know our machine, overcome such situations will be more natural. It is important not want completely to dominate the reactions of the Quad or ATV, but try to minimize them with a good body position. We have to go loose and very calmly to avoid surprises that we can not control.

With the Quad, it is fun to practice this discipline, even if it is limited by its weight and dimensions of the vehicle. It is critical to consider fair and necessary to the gas and have a good body position. It is advisable to start with less difficulty and obstacles to win in confidence measured to go up the level, in this discipline, be convinced that you will achieve avoids many accidental falls.

Tire pressure is critical to a balanced correct tire pressure. The wheels on the same axle must be at the same pressure. Otherwise, the Quad or ATV will become vague and difficult to control. The choice of the pressure depends on factors such as road conditions, rider weight, manufacturer, tire condition. In general, the less pressure, get more traction. But otherwise, the Quad or ATV becomes more unstable, because there is more lateral drift and run less. It is advised that the pressure indicated by the manufacturer (usually between 300 and 800 gr.) And go testing until you find the optimum for you. Here are some criteria to remember for the use of cheap ATV tires:

Read tire data

As the tires of cars and motorcycle manufacturer’s instructions (profile, tire size, date of manufacture) are visible on the tire sidewall. The greater the number of folds, the better the tire, may resist puncture, but often to the detriment of the ease of use.

Load indices and speed

It is forbidden to a tire with an index lower than that of the tires initially mounted on the vehicle or the speed recommended by the builder to assemble. However, it can be installed with a tire index greater rate.

Type of tires

The tire type “street” and all-terrain tires suitable for all kinds of roads and paths. It is recommended that conforms to the manufacturer of the vehicle on the dimensions and characteristics of the tires.

Change your tires correctly

Change a tire only

If your tires have a minimum degree of wear, i.e., the depth of the main grooves is maxed out, but you need to change a tire damaged by a puncture, or an accident must be replaced necessarily by the same tire. The new tire must have the same specificities of the above and be of the same brand, have the same profile/structure, same rates of speed/weight and of course the same dimensions.

Two tires

If two of your tires have reached the maximum degree of wear or are damaged, you must replace them with identical or similar tires. Choose necessarily tires with the same characteristics of those who were in their vehicle.

Taxiing and wear

The tire wear causes loss of adhesion. The more worn tires (less and less deep grooves), will be longer braking distances.

Balanced

Pressure
