The snow has to melt sometime, right?  When it does, it will be mud heaven.  All of us mudders know that some of the best mudding comes in spring when the snow melts and the frost comes up.  In the meantime, this is the perfect time to start preparing your ATV so it will be ready when the polar vortex decides to head north again. One of biggest gripes about mudding is having the mud stick to your machine.  An ATV can actually gain about 300 pounds of mud if it gets fully packed.  A dirt bike can gain over 100 pounds.  That’s a lot of extra weight that you don’t have to be hauling around with you.  When you spend all that money on lightweight aftermarket […]

Gain Performance with EPI ATV Clutch Kits If you are riding with a stock clutch setup on your ATV, chances are good that you aren’t experience the most output of power that is possible. When ATV manufacturers set up the clutches, they do not know what type of rider will be on every individual machine. The same line of ATV’s could be used for farming and utility work by one person, and another could use it for sport performance riding. For that reason, the manufacturers will set the clutches so they can perform decently in any given situation.  The manufacturers don’t have the luxury of knowing exactly how the wheeler will be ridden.  This can leave something to be desired for the rider who pushes their machine […]

When you think of Café Racers, old CB’s and Triumphs come to mind along with other Japanese and British bikes. Rarely does a bike with American muscle pop in. Lately, though, more and more bike builders are turning to an American classic – The Harley Sportster. The Sportster was designed to compete with the fast and nimble British bikes that were invading American soil.  It did well, but the Cafe Racer craze was still a huge draw. For two production years, Harley did produce a stock Café, the XLCR Sportster Café Racer. At the time, Harley riders had no interest in that style and the café racer fans didn’t even think of Harley. With the café trend coming back in full force, custom builders have decided to […]
