This question is for those who have purchased ATV boots.

Is there really a difference between ATV boots and Motocross boots? I am about to purchase new boots but dont know if the ATV boot is really better. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I believe the only difference is that ATV boots have cleated soles.

agreed...the only difference is the sole of the boot....atv has almost a workboot sole to it as the MX boot has a smooth sole...

Yep, I agree, that's the only diference.

I'm no expert, but through shopping for boots, I agree with the previous posters.

I found a relatively inexpensive boot from Moose Racing:

Moose Racing M1 Boot

Only thing I find negative about the boot is that jean seams can be annoying sometimes.....because I have no (@$&% meat on me! LOL!

Do you think there is a big difference between an atv boot and a good work/hiking/hunting boot? A construction worker for over 20 years and used to be an avid backpacker so i have been throug many many many boots. Currently have a great pair of boots which are completely water proof yet very breathable although with 800 grams of thinsulate will need non-insulated ones for the summer..

how different are ATV boots constructed than a good work boot?

PS i know the difference between motorcross as i used to ride motorcross when i was a teen... Hard shell casing to protect you from rocks and such but notice the ATV boots look lower and not so hard.. they look more like hiking boots

The Moose M1's I have are "ATV" boots, but over the calf....

And the treaded sole....

I would think the over the calf and rigid ankle support is what makes a riding boot a riding boot (or MX/ATV boot) compared to a well constructed work/hiking boot.

I got the over the calf boot mainly for water/mud crossings and the ankle support.....I've ridden with my 800 gram 6" hiking and 8" snow boots and loved it....

Honestly? Over the ankle hiking/work boots for trail riding seem to be fine.

I just need to protect my butt as much as possible ;)

I aim to please ;)

Not trying to push the M1's but at $100, I see that as a real bargain compared to "real" MX boots at $200+ .....

Had them for a few months and have gotten them wet, muddy, scraped, and they're holding up fine.....

Tom there just doesnt seem the need for such a rigid quad riding boot being your foot is pretty well protected unlike on a bike where it is completely exposed not to mention you would put your foot down for turns and to stabilize… just my thinking instead of spending more money on a specific boot..

:autoc:

The first pair of boots that I bought was the Thor T30 ATV boots.....the soles work great when walking as far as traction goes in mud but the sole on that boot doesn't give any at all and feels like they have concrete blocks strapped to em. I have bought several pair of Thor Quadrant boots without the ATV soles since then and love em.

      I am trying to figure out what the resistors do in this circuit.  From what I have read in the manual the head light/tail light circuit is A/C.  I am adding LED headlights/taillight so I want to convert it to D/C.  My assumption is the resistors in the circuit bleed off some power since the incandescent bulbs are low wattage.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.  I am not putting a Baja LED light kit or light bar, just LED bulbs in the stock location and a small cube flood mounted on the handle bars.  I already have the LED bulbs installed in the stock locations but they flicker badly.
       
      Cheers,

      The 2020 ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) Series, an AMA National Championship, season finale would take place at South of the Border MX (SOBMX) in Hamer, South Carolina. SOBMX would be the round where the 2020 season would come to a close after a lengthy season that once again saw Wienen Motorsports/Yamaha/Maxxis’ Chad Wienen and Phoenix Racing Honda/Maxxis/Elka’s Joel Hetrick locked in a championship points battle until the end.

      I have a 2001 650 quest that ran great. Shut it off, wont start. Got tinkering at a buddies, it ended up in a snowbank. Lost my train of thought since then.  I have a black, red, green  top with two plug in wires yellow and yellow and red I believe.. I have a new battery. Just dunno what to do. I tried hooking the wire coming up to the solenoid on the far side, then directly across I put the positive cable and it instantly started turning over without the button being pressed until I took the cable off.  The little black resistor box has also been eliminated.   Any help would be greatly appreciated..

      Anyone know what the fuse terminal marked UNSWITCH  does  .  Even with the key off it is causing a drain on my battery and I'm trying to figure out  what that terminal goes to.  It's a 10 amp fuse. If I pull it the "short" goes away.  Thanks in advance.

      First of all sorry I have been MIA here for a while, been busy with school and work.  I'll try and reply on some other threads asap, but posting this one because I just picked up a 2017 sportsman 570 before the new year and popped a boot on it going through a mud hole.  The former owner had aftermarket axles on it to accommodate the 4in lift and idk what brand they are but they're skinny as heck and idk what boot to buy to rebuild with?  It's the rear right lower boot (under the brake calp.).  I'll post some pics when I can and sorry again I've missed yall on the forum!
