I don't recall but I'd try Rincon riders.com.

I am not aware of any aftermarket wheels in the stock offset. Many people have looked, but end up with the stock wheels or go with the aftermarket choice which is 5+2 I think.

I stuck with the stock wheels myself.

I ate at the restaurant and the food wasn't bad, but they messed up on about half of the orders (minor stuff) and ran out of hamburger buns (?). After a day of riding, I'm not too particular though.

Mina's not exactly a "vacation destination".

I don't have a map handy but I believe travel time is about six hours from Sacramento.

I've ridden this area before. There are more miles of trails (mostly rough dirt roads) than you could ride in two weeks. It's mostly high-desert sagebrush through hills and mountain passes. A lot of fun can be had but it's not an "atv area" just a lot of open desert. When I went there, I just camped...

I've never had a problem, but when I'm way out in the sticks, I don't leave anything of real value around, and I do not lock my vehicle. I would rather have my stereo or whatever stolen than have my window busted out also. I do disable my vehicle from starting though.

I live five minutes from Mormon Immigrant trail and I was up there about a week ago taking the kids sledding, and will say that it seemed that most of the roads had thier gates closed and locked. A few trails were open just not many. I've been told by other riders in the area that the Forest Service...

Replies: 52
Views: 27345

Be warned that pulling a trailer loaded like that will REALLY affect the handling of the ATV. Because of the short wheelbase of both the trailer and ATV, it will get squirrelly at speeds over 20 MPH. I've been there. My trailer now is used around the property. I carry a whole bunch of gear, and now ...

Ken, just watch your rack and frame carefully for cracks/breaks. For our long trips in the desert, all of my buddies and myself used to carry the fuel off the back like that and over time, almost all of us either broke the rack or the ATV frame where the rack mounts. We had some pretty well designed...

LISTEN UP ! Go to down to your local Les Schwab and have them look up the Bighorns. They're special order and will take a week but have no shipping and no mounting costs. I paid $320 out the door tax and all. That was for 25s about a year ago, but then if you have a problem, you can take them back w...

I've had my Bighorns for over a year and am very pleased. I've had them in the Rubicon three times and learned that traction has never been a problem, in fact I have about 11.5 to 12 inches of clearance under the skid plate (fully weighted with rider on 25" Bighorns) and needed to bump up the pressu...

There have been a few others with CVTs. Subaru Justy's from the early 90's or so had 'em ( a manual trans was also available). There were others but I've killed too many brain cells to recall that info.

Dennis Kirk offers free shipping and no sales tax which made them the best deal I could find. I've had my Moose 60" for a season and a half and have had no complaints. There are several good brands (with remarkably similar products) Moose, Eagle, Warn to name a few. Whatever brand you get, don't go ...

Go to E-Bay and put in "ATV Winch". You'll get plenty of pages. I got a 3000 lb Ramsey with mount for just over $300 ($320 I think) delivered. I did not get the remote and wish that I had. I would recommend the remote to anyone purchasing a new winch.
