We offer full service on boats, motorcycles, snowmobiles, and ATVs as well. Below you will find some tips for properly maintaining your ATV.

1) Make sure to regularly change your air filter. It should be easy to access and is usually secured in the housing by clamps. We may carry this ATV part for you and would be glad to install it.
2) Regularly inspect your ATVs tie rod ends to make sure the boot is intact and grease is not leaking out. This could cause the ball joint to seize up and cause steering issues. This is an easy repair and we can order your ATV parts and have it repaired in no time.

If you're pulling your ATV out of storage, here are a few quick tips to make sure it is ready for the trails.
Quick ATV Tips for the Beginning of the Season
1. If your ATV is running rough, make sure to check that last years gas was not left in the tank. A common mistake is leave gas in the tank and not stable it. This has the potential to cause your engine to run rough, and gunk up your carburetors.
2. Be sure to check or change your oil. If you have a leak, storage can cause your oil to be low. No one likes firing up the machine for the first time in the season, only to find that the oil was low, which can be a costly mistake, but is luckily easily avoidable.
3. Check your air filter. Engines need three things to run properly. Gas, spark, and air. Leaving your ATV in storage gives dust and other particulates an opportunity to settle in your air filter. Double check that everything is clean and that air can pass easily through the filter.
4. Check ...
Earlier this week, we had a great base snow with 6 inches from the snowstorm that hit lower Michigan. However, over the weekend, we've had a bit of a thaw and a melt. It was a great, shiny weekend. Not the best for riding, but made us excited for the spring and boating season.
However, this week looks like it's snapping us back to reality. Luckily, we've got snow in the forecast, and chilling temperatures means snowmobile season is still strong, and we can still hit the trails.

Have you ever had a hard time getting your snowmobile to start? Maybe it's boggy on the low end? If you have a carbureted engine, your carbs may need a cleaning. But what exactly is a carburetor, how does it work, and why would it cause you problems?
Carburated vs Fuel Injected
Carbureted engines work by doing the fuel/air mixture outside of the cylinders. They do this by regulating the amount of air and gas flowing through the carburator via a system of needles and jets, which make use of a venturi inside the carburetor.
Carbureted engines are easier to start, and easier to maintenance than a fuel injected engine. However, the fuel/air ratios may not be as precise as a fuel injected system, which shoots fuel directly into the cylinders. A fuel injected system maybe be more prone to flooding, but may be more costly to maintain.
How does a carburetor work?
A carburetor works via a venturi. This compresses air slightly, creating a high pressure, fast moving jet of air. This has the effect of mixing air and gas, and creating suction through the airbox on the machine.
What goes wrong?
Often times, particulates from your gas tank can get pulled through your engine which can cause a blockage. Burning ethanol rich gasoline will also deposit sentiments throughout your carburetor. These pieces can be extremely small, but have a huge effect on the overall performance of your machine. This ...
