Jacking up a UTV or ATV is all about the right balance and stability. Using a good quality floor jack to lift up the frame and a set of jack stands to stabilize it is how to properly lift your ride.
ATVs and UTVs don't have alternators. In fact, they use what is called a magneto system where magnets embedded on the flywheel pass over wire coils or stator to create an electrical current to power your vehicle.
It is time to replace your UTV or ATV tires when the tread gets low enough to affect tire performance. While that is mostly preference, you should look for things like cracks, punctures, damage, and bald spots before each ride.
Portals, or portal gear lifts, allow you to lift your vehicle and provide gear reduction to run larger tires, gain torque, and keep your factory steering geometry. Adding a standard lift can cause you to do extensive work to change the gear ratio.
ATVS can reach speeds that would allow them on highways. Their low pressure tires and high center of gravity make ATVs more prone to tip over or lose control on pavement or gravel. Studies show that over 50% of ATV deaths occur on private or public roads.
2 stroke engines create more torque at higher RPM and they require premixing of oil and fuel. 4 stroke engines are heavier and can weigh up to 50% more than a 2 stroke engine and create a higher torque at a lower RPM.
ATVs and UTVs have smaller tires in the front to increase handling, provide easier steering, and create better stability. Larger rear tires are there to increase traction and provide better acceleration.
