ATV Winter Storage Tips and Tricks

ATV Winter Storage Tips and Tricks
By Grace Moryan


It’s fun to ride your ATV (All-terrain vehicle), especially if it is a DRR, in the sunshine, but when cold weather conditions arise it is important to store your ATV. However, your garage may be filled with bikes, supplies, and other clutter. Here are some tips from us at DRR on how and where to store your ATV for the winter.

It’s sad to say goodbye to your vehicle for an entire season, but it is important to take precautions before storing it.
  1. Wash your ATV. Before storing it, you will want to get the dirt off your vehicle.
  2. Oil It. To prevent rust and corrosion, you can put a thin layer of oil on your ATV.
  3. Put oil in the cylinder. Remove the spark plug and cover the cylinder in mist oil. Continue to turn it until the cylinder walls are completely covered in oil. This will prevent it from rusting.
  4. Empty the carburetor. If your ATV has a carburetor, you will want to drain the fuel out of it before you store it.
  5. Fill the gas tank. This is important because a full gas tank cannot rust. If you have a plastic tank, a full tank will prevent condensation. Add fuel stabilizer to keep it in top condition.
  6. Don't forget about the ATV battery. Your battery may freeze over the course of winter, so it is important to store your ATV in a place with climate control. If you cannot find a place, it is sufficient to remove the batter from your ATV and charge it.
  7. Fill your antifreeze. If you cannot store your ATV in a place with climate control, fill your antifreeze to the top. This will protect your ATV.
If you have a 2 stroke ATV:
  1. Remove the exhaust. Be sure to clean out the oil inside of the exhaust to keep it from rusting. When your ATV starts up, it will pull in air from the exhaust, which causes corrosion. You want to make sure you do this in order to reduce rust and to prevent additional damage to your ATV.
Choosing a storage facility:
  1. Ask about size. Every ATV is different in dimensions and size. Make sure the facility you choose can hold your ATV.
  2. Hallways are a concern. While your storage unit may have the room dimensions you need, be sure you can fit your ATV through the hallways.
  3. Compare prices. There are a variety of different storage facilities that have different prices. Some might give you a discount for long-term storage, so be sure to compare and contrast for the best deal.

Freeze Crack Advisory: Keep your tires in good condition

Freeze Crack Advisory: Keep your tires in good condition
By Grace Moryan



When buying tires, there’s a lot to think about: durability, time of year, brand, and lifespan. Choosing a tire might seem difficult, but knowing how to store and maintain a tire is critical to keeping them in top condition. Here is some advice from the experts at DeCuzzi tires.

What is a freeze crack advisory?

A freeze crack advisory is the recommended temperature you should use your tires and how to properly store it in cold conditions. If your tires freeze, they can be flexed or stressed in ways that break the tire if they are not made for cold weather conditions. This makes transporting tires a hassle because they may potentially break when frozen. Here are some rules regarding tire transportation:

1.      If your tires were exposed to 32 degrees Fahrenheit or less, store them in a place above this temperature for 24 hours
2.      Never store them in a place below 32 degrees Fahrenheit
3.      Always use winter tires for cold weather
4.      If you notice your tires are cracked, do not use them.

What if I chemically modify my tires?

               With do-it-yourself anything, you always run the risk of altering a product to do something it wasn’t intended to become. If you choose to soak your tires or use a tread softener, there is no guarantee your tires will work the same after doing so. After all, the factory produces a product to work effectively and efficiently. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and detect errors early on while they are still under warranty.

How long do tires last?

               Tires last about two years depending on how much you drive and use your car. If you drive a lot, you may find yourself replacing your tires more frequently than someone who drives every few days. If you don’t replace your tires, the quality of your tires will decrease and you are more likely to lose control of your car. Sunlight, temperature, automobile fluent solvents, and atmospheric pollutants all can speed up the aging of your tires.

Be sure to replace your tires and check their condition every so often. Being aware of how to be safe when the temperature is cold is critical to preventing accidents and keeping your car running like new.

Hall of Fame Rider | November 2017

Hall of Fame Rider | November 2017

Kenny Phillips


Kenny Phillips from Wallkill, New York has been selected as DRR USA’s first ever Hall of Fame Rider! He has been racing ATVs for the past eight years and has placed 1st in 11 races and 2nd in nine races, among many other top ten finishes. 

We asked Kenny a few questions about his racing experience. Here’s what he had to say:

Q: What ATV did you ride?
K: My first quad was a Sunl, which was not made for racing, but I begged to race. Once we raced a few times and I knew I wanted to continue, my parents bought me a new 50cc DRR!

Q: What are a few accomplishments that you are proud of from your racing career?
K: The accomplishment that I am most proud of is winning the 70cc Championship in the New East Extreme Dirt Track National Series with my 70cc DRR. I am also very proud of taking podium on my 70cc DRR in the 90cc class and the supermini class. Another accomplishment is winning the 50cc championship in 2012 with my DRR. We have had a great run together!

Q: What is your fondest memory of riding ATVs in general?
K: When I first started racing, my very first race, I drove straight to the top of the track, went very slowly around, and waved to the crowd each time I drove past the grand stands. I stopped doing that, of course, but everyone laughs when I tell that story.

Q: Do you have any advice for current young riders?
K: Never get frustrated on the track. Stay calm and you can focus more on how you are riding, instead of winning or where you will place. The calmer you are, the better you will ride. You never want to be reckless or cause an accident. Most of all - always have fun!

Congratulations on a great racing career so far, Kenny!



NOMINATE A RIDER!

If you know a rider or family of riders who rode DRR ATVs growing up, we’d love to feature them for an entire month. You can even nominate yourself or one of your own family members! Whoever you’d like to submit, please send their name, email address, and what year(s) they raced to social@drrusa.com, or message us directly on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/drratvs/.

Thank you for helping us draw attention to these amazing riders!
