Aftermarket Accessories for Sport Quads

Sport quads are made for two basic purposes: going fast and having a good time. Although they come ready to roll from the manufacturer, riders always like to add their own personal touch. We asked a bunch of sport quad riders which three things they would change or add first thing on a new quad. Here are their top three answers and few of our best-selling items to go with each one:

Exhaust

A quality head pipe and silencer, or a slip-on by itself, are easy ways to achieve a noticeable increase in horsepower and overall power output. Changing out the exhaust also usually changes the sound output – quieter or louder depending on the exhaust. Aftermarket exhaust is a light-weight option over stock that not only performs well, but adds a sleek look to your quad too.

Tires

Whether you are looking for that extra edge out on the track, or you just want to dominate the trails or sand, running the right tires for the terrain will give you the heads up you are looking for. Tires come in a variety as diverse as the riders who buy them – it’s easy to find an aftermarket tread that will maximize your performance and compliment your riding style.

Nerf Bars

Nerf bars are universally a great addition for any type of sport quad riding. Not only do they offer a solid base for your foot, they are the best way to shield your feet from injury and prevent slipping off the pegs in a race, off a jump or during a rough ride. Nerf bars will give you added confidence as you ride and look great on your machine at the same time.
