For better traction we went with the
Power Grip V2 from Duro tire and
mounted them on the stock wheels.
These tires provided us with great traction in rocks and mud without skipping

we find it more useful as a little extra
padding if the rack hits you in the
rear end when riding aggressively.
QuadBoss has a big lineup of storage
bags, trunks, hand mitts, nets, drink
holders and also hard parts for most
ATVs. Check them out at www.quad
For this simple build we really liked
how everything works great togeth-
er—from the handguards and grips
to the storage bag, footpegs and tires.
During our testing all of the upgrades
worked just how we wanted and
then some. The handguards kept
our hands safe from branches and
other objects kicked up from other rid-
ers, and also helped with deflecting
rain. The aggressive footpegs never
lost grip when in extremely wet and
muddy conditions, resulting in a more
pleasurable ride knowing our feet will
stay planted where they need to. The
Duro tires grabbed every bit of trac-
tion that we needed to get us out of
the most extreme situations possible.
In muddy conditions the tires would
dig in and pull the machine through
without overly spinning, and in the
rocks the wide spacing between lugs
would grab and get you over the
obstacle with ease. With the added
storage from QuadBoss we were able
to bring extra items with us, such as
snacks, drinks and tools, that we may
need during a ride. ❏
We installed a set of Flex-Tec handguards from Rox Speed FX
that retail for $179.95. These handguards have a removable
cover for easy cleaning.
Rox Speed FX sells these utility ATV footpegs for $89.95. They
provide great traction in extremely wet and muddy conditions.
For extra storage space we picked up a rear rack bag from
Quadboss that retails for $199.99. You have three compartments, two drink holders and reflective trim around the edges.
The storage bags can also be used as a cooler to keep your
food and drinks cold while out exploring. The lids feature
Velcro and a clip buckle to keep the outside elements away
from your items inside.
