Are you looking for tips on how to maintain your ATV along with info on how products like AMSOIL’s Synthetic Water Resistant Grease can keep your ATV running smooth? This is the article for you. If you ever wondered what it would be like to mix the speeds that a dirt bike can give you with the stability or a 4WD? If your answer was yes, then the chances are that you discovered the world of ATVs. And if you’re lucky enough, you’re reading this article while looking at a shiny new ATV next to you.

Keep Your ATV in Good Shape

If this sounds like you (and congratulations if it does), or you are interested in buying an ATV and want to know what level of maintenance you can be in for, Wesco has the following article with information that can help.

We All Have to Start Somewhere

And if you are a beginner, this somewhere is called your owner’s manual. If you don’t remember what it looks like, it’s often the booklet with a lot of crucial information about the safety of your vehicle along with any steps that you need to take to take care of it. If you haven’t already thrown it out, your owner’s manual is worth the read. Not only will it help you to understand how to use all of the features your vehicle has, but it will also let you know about any engine break in procedures which you need to perform before taking it out for a day on the track. If you can’t seem to find it, either speak with the dealer who you purchased it from or speak with the manufacturer for a digital copy. Either way, get yourself a copy of your owner’s manual!

Lever and Handles

While it can seem like maintenance that is *too* basic, remember that if you don’t do it, nobody will. This means that you should spend a bit of time taking care of the condition of your cables and lever.s. After all, if one of them gets stuck when you need it, you could find yourself in a swamp instead of racing right past it! Take some time to check for any dirt, moisture buildup, and fraying wires. When you're on track you, will be glad that you did.

Fluid Levels

Just like your car, or any other vehicle that you drive for that matter, your ATV is going to need fluids. Information on what kind of fluids it needs will be in the handbook mentioned earlier in the article, known as the elusive ‘Owner’s Manual.' It’s always a good idea to check each of your fluid levels the day before your planned trip so that you have the time to get more if any of the levels are low. Of course, oil doesn’t last forever; if your fluids are looking a little long in the tooth, it’s time to drain and replace. Click here to get the best synthetic engine oil for your ATV, such as AMSOIL’s Synthetic Water Resistant Grease, designed to defend against washout and stay where it's needed, despite contact with water. If you aren’t sure which product you need, speak with an expert at Wesco by calling (847) 922-2654.

Suspension

Do you know what stops you from feeling every single rock and bumps that you ride over? Your suspension. And do you know what happens when you neglect to maintain your suspension? You guessed it; you feel every single rock and bump that you ride over. Make sure that you’re using products like AMSOIL’s water-resistant grease to keep your suspension smooth, even as you ride through swamps.

Air Filter

If you drive a regular sedan, then the chances are that your mechanic changes your air filter around every six months, or so. Which isn’t too bad, really. However, if you’re riding an ATV around dirty and dusty paths (and we hope that you are), then your air filter is going to be working a whole lot harder than the one in your car. So much so that you can expect to be cleaning your air filter after each ride. After all, all of the dirt that you kicked up has to go somewhere, and unfortunately that somewhere is often your air filter.

Keep It Clean!

Last, but by no means, least, be sure that you always give your ride a thorough wash and wipe down after each ride. Apart from keeping your ride looking its best, it also helps to prevent corrosion in and around the body of your bike.
