I wont be putting ski's opn the quad but their is a kit that alows me to if i wanted. Theirs front tires made for the sand and their totaly smooth but down the middle of the tire their is a line that comes up about hlaf inch all the way around the tire and that would work like ski's but i dont need front tires but differant fronts would be good for me cause my tires are really small and skinny so they end up going under the snow instead of above.dobbs said:Are you going to bolt some ski's to the front?
Have you considered that if changing the profile of an ATV tire to that of a sled was all it took to make an
ATV work in the snow some tire mfgr would have done it by now? Also, on a sled you have several FEET of track in contact with the ground, while on your ATV you have a round wheel with INCHES of contact. The tire is still going spin when you strap the track on, you haven't changed how much tire contacts the ground enough to make a diff.
Of course i could be wrong and i like a clever project just as much as the next guy so I think you should go for it. Just stay off the trails.
Way to loud. Its about 15-20dbs quieter than a jet. And it can blow flames out the muffler.dobbs said:what makes it illegal to ride in the summer?

and for the track idea that involes inflating tires, i doubt it would work. rear tires have such a low air pressure that it couldnt hold on. what ive seen done is too physically bolt a track on and run those tire balls. if you do mx, u know what tire balls are. and seriously how loud is ur quad? my sled is around 105 db last time i got metered. my quad is 92 db, its meets the AMA limit for db's. what kind of pipe u got on that?
rgoers said:It's not going to matter what you do for traction - as soon as the snow is over a foot deep, you're not going anywhere. ATVs just weren't made for snow. If you can't keep it on top, you're going to get stuck. Unless you can find some hard packed trails (wheeled vehicles are illegal on snowmobile trails in NY state) where you go will always be dictated by snow depth.
