ATV Maintenance and Repair - Pro Remedies

Be prepared or in need of repair. The choice is yours.Greased Drill Bit

Drilling in an area where metal shavings can cause catastrophic damage can be extremely tricky. I was recently faced with this task while modifying a vent for our upcoming Teryx project, and if I couldn't find a way to contain the metal particles while drilling, I would have been forced to remove the cylinder head. By keeping a drill bit coated with thick grease and cleaning it at regular intervals, I was able to drill the hole without the risk of loose particles going astray and entering the engine. A rag coated with the same grease was placed on the backside of the hole to catch any particles that would have unknowingly slipped through.

      Keep in mind that we also have an official EVENTS SECTION  that is basically a calendar of community events. So please post any official ATV events there also.

      This section shows a bunch of photo contests that we used to have. We haven't had them in a while and I think it would be a great idea to get something going again, so just wondering if anyone is interested. It would be up to admin, but I think a good idea. Looking back at some of the threads, there were some cool contests.
