    Building a new ATV

    If you were building a new from the ground up 2wd drive hunting/ranching motorcycle that could go more places than a conventional atv and cost one third of the price, what accessories would you put on it? How would you design it? What size motor? What type transmission would you use?

    I would start off by making it 4wd, winch, heated handles, 10 gal fuel cap, spare tire. That I think would be the "ultimate hunting atv" (for Nevada)

    I agree with making it a 4wd. And the winch. As far as engine size is concerned, it would really depend on what you use it for. I personally think there is no need for an atv bigger than a 500, but then, I don't expect my atv to pull anything more than a 4' brushhog. I think it's crazy to try pulling other farming implements with an atv. Thats what a JD or a Case is for.
    I'm getting ready to buy one, and I will either buy a 360 or a 400.

    I'll also put a milk crate on the front rack, but I don't think they sell that aftermarket part at most ATV places.

    This is two wheels, not four.

    Look at the Rokon's ( 2 wheel drive motorcycle) and see if they give you any ideas. I know they have gas containers built into the rims front and back, and they will go anywhere.

    I ran the K&N for a while then pulled it off and put it back in the box, money wasted. It is stock and I am looking at cams, some will bost horsepower by 120. Lack of traction is already a problem, wheelhop if any rpm from a complete stop. I dont want to destroy the streetability. Best guess for et is in the 12.90s
