All About ATV Lift Kits
Summary: ATV lift kits are used basically to gain more ground clearance. But there are other applications to lift kits that you might not know.
Sometimes, there is need to raise your ATV even just a fraction away from the ground. It could be a much too rocky terrain that keeps banging on the ATV's underside, or your ATV is way too lowered and you need to pass a stretch of a watery trail. Either way, you need ATV lift kits to get the work done.
ATV lift kits are sets of bolts and braces that are designed to adjust your ATV and gain more ground clearance. ATV lift kits have an average of 2 inch lift. They are also easy bolt-on-bracket system that you can easily install while on the road.
There are several kinds of ATV lift kits available, most of them designed for a specific machine so it isn't choose-your-preference exercise. You should consider your vehicle type and the manufacturer's stock suspension. You should consider, too, the existing lift your ATV tires allow on your vehicle and decide how much lift you need installed. You need to balance the overall existing conditions of your ATV and the lift you're going to install, if there's a working harmony between them. Remember, the higher your ATV is from the ground, the higher, too, will be its center of gravity. This, in turn will heighten the risk of your ATV of overturning.
Besides terrain conditions, ATV lift kits are also used to enhance an ATV's working condition. Here are some samples of ATV lift kits and how it is employed to enhance performance.
