How to install a new seat cover

Subscribe Here AND WHERE TO GET NEW SEAT COVERS -- ATV seats come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common—they are always used every time you ride your machine. While some riders don’t spend much time thinking about how important a seat is, others know when they should consider upgrading their seat cover to one that is more durable and even grips better. Replacing a seat cover may be tricky, but it’s not as difficult as many believe it to be. We are here to walk you through the steps of changing…

IT’S A WILD QUADRACER WORLD!

SPECIAL READER REPORT: Hey Dirt Wheels! Lifelong reader here and just wanted to share some pictures from our recent group trip to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Mears, Michigan. We got as many riders as we could from our Facebook group "Quadzilla LT500r and Quadracer LT250r" and met up for an awesome time in the sand! It was my first time to Silver Lake and I can't wait to go back! Had an awesome time meeting all these fellow Quadracer diehards and I hope next year is even bigger! I had my white…

NEW PREDATOR 750?

No, this is a special project quad build by a Dirt Wheels reader. We thought it was worth taking a close look at his machine and letting him tell us about it.  Hi guys, my name is Eric Seyler and I'm from Boyertown, PA. Here are a few  pictures of my 2004 Polaris Predator with a 2007 Suzuki GSX-R 750 engine swap. I race it at a few local motorcycle drag racing tracks and its a blast to ride. Most of the quad is fairly stock. Some of the modifications were the top and bottom main frame rails had to be cut out and…

PROJECT: QUADZILLA RETURNS

Are you man enough? By the staff of Dirt Wheels, Photos by Pat Carrigan  We owe a great deal to dedicated ATV owners who spend the time and money to keep the legendary machines from our sport’s past alive and more than well. In this case, a Duncan Racing International, Inc. customer chose to unite two legends—Duncan Racing and a 1987 Suzuki LT-500R QuadRacer. The LT-500R moniker is all but lost in common vernacular; the machine has simply become known as “Quadzilla.” Quadzilla is an allusion to the…

PAYING TRIBUTE TO A LEGEND!

❏ We owe a great deal to dedicated ATV owners who spend the time and money to keep the legendary machines from our sport’s past alive and more than well. In this case, a Duncan Racing International, Inc. customer chose to unite two legends—Duncan Racing and a 1987 Suzuki LT-500R QuadRacer. The LT-500R moniker is all but lost in common vernacular; the machine has simply become known as “Quadzilla.” Quadzilla is an allusion to the fictional Japanese monster Godzilla that is, as you may imagine, not famous for its…

TRAIL TECH STRIKER SPEEDOMETER

-- Know how fast you're going & how far you've ridden -- The top-of-the-line sport quads are pretty featured-filled these days. They have electronic fuel injection, fully adjustable suspension and powerful engines. One thing they don’t have (except the Yamaha Raptor 700 SE) is a speedometer. Furthermore, about the only instrumentation they do have is a gear indicator and a couple of warning lights. Cost factors and weight savings are most likely the reasoning behind this. What if you could see a speedome- ter,…

2017 ATV BUYER’S GUIDE!

It is our favorite time of the year again, that time when we see every new ATV model you can imagine. Recent trends are continuing—there are fewer 2WD sport models on offer, but 4x4 tech remains strong. As much as we lament the loss of sport models, the advancement of 4x4 technology is most likely partially responsible. Riders who once would have bought a sport quad (when 4x4s were basically farm implements) now choose a sporty, long-travel 4x4 for trail use. Modern 4x4 quads have as much wheel travel as many ‘80s sport…

CVT Belt Buyer’s Guide – Get the BEST belt for your ride!

For a wide number of the most popular and best-selling ATVs and UTVs, the heart of the power delivery system is the CVT belt. There are a few extreme ATV riders who are hard on the CVT belts, but time and mileage are the most common reasons to change an ATV’s CVT belt. UTVs are heavier, so they are harder on CVT belts, whether they are high-horsepower sport models or not. No matter what your CVT-motivated machine is, it will need a new belt sooner or later. We based our belt guide on the Polaris RZR XP 1000 model. It is a…
