❏ Have you noticed that your ATV or
UTV isn’t tracking straight like it used
to? Or it might be that the handlebar
or steering wheel isn’t in the correct
position? Either way, these things can
become a nuisance if the front end is
off even slightly. So, how can these
things be fixed without taking it to
a repair shop? Fixing each of these
problems is much easier than you
think, and hopefully you’ll save some
time, money and aggravation with
ADJUSTING FRONT-END TOE
Our 2017 Honda Rancher 420’s front
end got out of sorts after nailing a
rock at full speed. The left front wheel
was pointing hard to the left, while the
handlebar and right tire were straight.
Here’s how we aligned it.
Here you can see what it shouldn’t look like.
Be sure that the machine is on level ground
before you start work.
The next step is to sit on the quad and make sure the handlebar is straight. Then
use a tie-down—it can be ratchet or standard style—and tie both hooks to each
side of the handlebar, that way the front end won’t move while adjusting.
Make sure your ride
