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:

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.

    • 2008 Polaris Outlaw 90 CC electrical system question

      I recently bought a 2008 Polaris 90cc outlaw for my daughter it only needed a few things like a carburetor and a transmission shaft which I fixed with ease. The headlights on this vehicle are dim so I bought a aftermarket set of headlights also a  small winch does anyone know if the stator puts out enough voltage to run these extra accessories do they sell a stator that puts out higher amps? I would appreciate any help that you guys should give me

    • Yamaha Moto 4 250 Won't Start - Help Appreciated

      Bought an old Yamaha (Moto 4 250) and the thing won't start.  It will start with choke full on - but close choke and it'll die. If you give it gas - it dies. It will take throttle with choke on (and smoke like a chimney). When I first got it the thing would start periodically - but again soon as you give it throttle it died. I took the carburetor off and cleaned it all with carb cleaner and a tiny piece of wire (to get into the holes) I checked the float levels (good). Has spark. What else could be the issue? I can safely say the carburetor is 100% clean - the pilot mix screw is set where it's supposed to be set (1 3/4 turns). Driving me nuts.  I took the air filter off and cleaned and oiled it (would over-oiling the filter choke it from getting air?)

    • Replacement cylinder question for 90 Quadrunner LT4WD

      Hey there, new to the forum. Did some searching before posting but didn't manage to find anything, so forgive me if it's been covered before.

      I've got a 1990 Quadrunner LT4WD that I got my hands on last year for super cheap (for a reason). It starts and runs great, but the plug is drowned with oil after about a half hour of use (surprisingly next to no smoke though...weird), so I'm going to look at replacing the piston, rings (one of which came out in two pieces) and the cylinder (very little scoring, but definitely saw some bad detonation at some point and needs replacing). The connecting rod thankfully has zero play in it and is silky smooth, so I'm good with how the bottom end sits at this point.

      Now, a friend has a 2002 Quadrunner 4WD LT-250F that's out of commission due to basically everything other than engine issues, and has been sitting around for a few years. He says that I can just take what I need if they'll work, so I've been looking at the part numbers before we rip on his motor. I see that the part number for the cylinder is the same (11210-19B10-0F0), but the newer models have either "Model K1" or "Model K2" listed as well. Will they work with the older machines or are there a couple little things that just don't let them jive?
