Mods for a 220 Bayou?

Recommended Posts

So I've owned my first ever ATV for roughly 48 hours and I'm already testing the limits of my Google-Fu on mods and accessories for it. I have a '00 Kawasaki Bayou 220 that I'm getting running and plan on using it for camping and hunting trips in northern Idaho. Other than the obvious: winch and a gun rack (actually won one a couple years ago and still have it!), is there any suggestions or recommendations anyone can give?

One thing I'm considering is the Rotopax 2gal fuel can and the 2 gal first aid/survival can just cause I like being prepared, though I'm not sure it'd be necessary as I carry everything I need, minus fuel, in a day-pack whenever I'm in the woods. Any thoughts on the Rotopax? or other small fuel cans?

I would get a rear storage bag and load it up! I would equip the bike with a 12v accessory plug for a cigarette lighter type plug for a tire compressor and a USB port to charge the phone, a tire plug kit, and a jumper pack, spark plugs  and a small socket set. Electrical tester and flashlight, small shovel. 

Tow straps and a good rope. Always good to keep a snatch block as well and a few bottles of water.

Thanks for the recommendations. I like the idea of the 12v and usb outlets! Just got back from errands and had stopped by Harbinger Fright to pick up a few sale items for the bayou: 20' tow/recovery strap, tie down ratchets, digital air gauge, tire plug kit, and some engine degreaser. I may take the tire plug kit back as I just found out AutoZone has a kit that comes with CO2(?) cartridges for re-inflating for $20. Saves room and I have a large compressor in my garage. I have a heavy duty plastic tool box I was thinking of bolting to the back rack, but I use it to haul my chain saw and come-along (which will be with the bike until I get a winch. lol

All in all, a decent start to equipping it before I take it out on it's maiden voyage.
