Whether you’re blasting through the dunes or tackling gnarly rock crawling trails, upgrading your Polaris RZR skid plate can be one of your best investments. If you haven’t fallen victim to rocks or tree roots puncturing through the thin plastic OE skid plates, consider yourself lucky. It’s not uncommon to see large rocks bust through mediocre stock skid plates and cause damage to the frame, transmission or engine cases, or even have sticks and branches puncture through the floorboards into the cab, dangerously close to its occupants.
Adding a set of ATV nerf bars is often the easiest and best upgrade to make to your ATV. Aside from giving your ride a sport look, they add an element of safety to catch your foot/boot in the event you lose your footing on your pegs. Additionally, if you’re riding or racing with others, they can help to prevent another wheel from intruding into the area of your ATV that can cause a catastrophic wreck. In fact, many race organizations and tracks make ATV nerf bars a mandatory item before you can even consider riding or racing.
If you live in a state that allows street legal operation of your ATV or UTV, an ATV horn kit is an absolute requirement. Horns are the best way to make your presence known to distracted drivers and pedestrians as well as wildlife that may stray onto the highway in front of you. A good ATV horn kit also gives you the ability to get peoples attention to see how much you’re having cruising around town as you wave hi, so why wouldn’t you want to have one installed?
An ATV windshield can be a huge bonus to your riding experience, deflecting dirt, rocks, rain, and other debris so you don’t have to suffer through being pelted repeatedly in the face as you blast down the trail. And although the effects would be tough to measure, putting a windshield on your ATV can also help improve its aerodynamics, deflecting some amount of oncoming air around the rider and reducing drag. Sure, that’s only going to show up at higher speeds, as a modest bump to fuel economy and top speed, but every little bit counts.
Winter is coming, and depending on where you live, preparation has already begun.
