RZR Mods at the ATV/UTV Jamborees

Photo of Rzr Mods and ATV Mods

One of the exciting things at the ATV and UTV Jamboree’s is to look at all the machines people are riding.  I look at the brand of machines, the age of the machine, the size and one really fun thing to look for are the modifications people do to their machine.  Whether it is an accessories add on, or something unique that they have found, created or invented for their machine.

In this series of articles we will highlight a whole bunch of mods that we have found in the recent Jamboree’s.  Some you can just get at Checker, Napa, Walmart or online.  They are the easy mods. Some will be in detail, and will require a little more work.  For example:  adding a heater to your RZR, or modifying the faulty air filter system on the RZR.  One of my favorites is the doors for the Razor made by a local man.  They look so amazing, and actually work at stopping some of the dust coming in the sides.

You’ll love all of these articles, and if you have mods that you or a friend have done, and would like to share.  Please do so.  Most likely we will publish your article, and photo. If you have your own web site we will link back to you as the author.

I hope you will look forward to this project, and enjoy the opportunity to read and share with other ATV/UTV enthusiasts.

List of Mod articles coming up:  Air Filter Mod for RZR, Heater for RZR, Mirrors for ATV,UTV, Street Light kit mods, Dust prevention ideas, two way radio mounting kits, Antenna mounts and many many more.

Get Your Kids Involved

Riding ATV’s doesn’t only have to be an activity for adults. A great way to involve the whole family is to get a mini ATV for your child. Mini ATV’s or kids quads are much like normal ATV’s except smaller and less powerful. They come in different sizes for children of different ages and also have a variety of cc ratings. It is recommended that younger children start with the smaller 50cc engine ATV’s. Most kids quad bikes come with extra features to ensure the safety of the children riding them. A lot of them have remote controls with cut out switches so you can take over if your child gets out of control.

Of course other safety measures should be taken to ensure the safety of your child. Like bigger ATV’s, kids ATV’s can also be dangerous if you’re not careful. This danger can be minimized by teaching your child how ride their ATV properly and always being around when they are riding to supervise them. All of the regular safety equipment can also be purchased in kids sizes to ensure they are protected if something goes wrong.

When shopping for a kids quad bike, look around and make sure you get one that is right for your child. It’s important to ensure that your child has a bike that is the right size for them. They need to be able to reach all of the controls easily to ensure they are safe while riding. There are many different brands so it’s a good idea to look around and ask the dealers questions.

Kids ATV’s are a great way to introduce your children to riding ATV’s and allows the whole family to enjoy riding together. Learn more about kids quads or kids atv bikes at kidsquads.net.
