ADDING A SPEEDO TO OLDER ATVs

ADDING A SPEEDOMETER TO OLDER ATVs Dear Boss, I’m wondering if it’s possible to install a speedometer on the Kawasaki KFX700? If so, how would you go about doing that? Thanks. Paul Bassani Colorado Springs, CO ADDING A SPEEDO TO OLDER ATVs On the surface your question is simple, but if you take a deep dive into all the equipment available that can read your speed, you had better pack a lunch, son! So, let’s start off with the simplest speedometer—the bicycle speedometer. Back in the day before speedometers were…

2020 4×4 SHOOTOUT

2020 4x4 SHOOTOUT By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2020 4x4 SHOOTOUT As time rolls on, technology advances, but the realities of the off-road market mean that the best-selling machines get the tech and marketing dollars. That means that big 4x4 quads keep improving, but they don’t get the attention UTVs do as they get more popular. Reductions in marketing dollars mean it has gotten difficult to get enough of these big-bore brutes to perform shootouts. We managed to gather the Honda Rincon 680, Kawasaki Brute Force…

HOW-TO RESTORE OLD PLASTIC

HOW-TO RESTORE OLD PLASTIC When you see a shiny ATV in the showroom, it’s like love at first sight. The light gleaming off the carefully sculpted curves of the plastic bodywork is like art. Then you ride it, and two weeks in, it looks like a tired old mule. We may be exaggerating that last part a small amount, but every machine we test ends up with scuffed, scratched, and beat-up plastics, no matter how careful we are with it. So instead of dropping hundreds of dollars on brand-new plastics, why not repair your old…

KAWASAKI TERYX4 LE TEST

By the staff of Dirt Wheels KAWASAKI TERYX4 LE TEST Kawasaki has the longest history of any Japanese manufacturer when it comes to UTVs. Starting with the early Mule models and progressing to the evergreen Teryx line, Kawasaki has been a continuous and serious player in the category. It has been a while since there were major upgrades to the Teryx platform, but we have a lot of respect for this machine.

RIDING WITH THE COOL GROUP

By Karel Kramer RIDING WITH THE COOL GROUP We all know at least one of “those” guys. The one that has to have all of the cool stuff on his quad or UTV. The colors are coordinated, the stickers are perfectly placed, the tire tread bristles with critically sharp edges, and the machine itself is one the internet is still buzzing about. There is nothing wrong with this sort of obsession on the face of it. If your friend is the sort that has the ability to employ this sort of motorized perfection, or his choice of…
