S&H Farm Supply Tips for Extending the Life of Your ATV

So you just got a new ATV? That’s awesome! But just like getting a new pet, getting a new ATV comes with responsibility. If you want it to last for a long time, you need to take care of it! Obviously, taking care of an ATV isn’t quite as intensive as caring for a living thing, but you still need to do certain things to make sure your ATV will last as long as possible. S&H Farm Supply knows some of the best things you can do to extend the life of your ATV.

Mind Your Manual

The first thing you should do is take a look at your manual. Different ATVs have different nuances that you may not be aware of. Taking a look at your manual can give you a good grasp on your machine and its details.

Break it in Properly

All ATVs have a break in routine that is extremely important to abide by. You may want to take your new ATV out and run it until it’s ragged, but you can’t do that without breaking it in first. Not following this first step could certainly cause issues for your ATV in the future.

Maintain Your Fluids

Changing the oil is always important, but make sure you are keeping up with your other fluids as well. Checking these fluids is pretty simple, as they are all easily accessed. Just check your dip sticks to see if everything looks good. Of course, if you don’t ride enough to make your oil reach a level where it needs to be replenished, you should still change the oil every once in awhile, due to the fact that oil can go bad.

General Maintenance

Make sure that all of the parts on your ATV are functioning at peak efficiency. Things such as air filters, nuts, boots, belts, and bolts need to be maintained. If you are ever in need of a part, S&H Farm Supply can provide you with quality parts whenever you need them. Also, don’t forget to clean your ATV regularly, especially if you’re getting it pretty dirty on your rides.

Drive Smart and Safe

Of course, the easiest way to keep your ATV running for many years is to treat it with respect. If you’re driving in mud and water, properly equip it to handle these conditions. Don’t drive with reckless abandon either. Be safe and don’t crash. Drive smart both for the safety of the ATV and your personal safety.
