I found a brand new pair of Alpinestar Tech 3's about 5 years ago, they were outdated and heavily discounted, I still ride with them today. I am looking at a new pair though, they are getting a bit worn, broke two buckles off my left boot in a wreck, so I have to wrap electrical tape around the top to keep the boot from coming loose. I am pretty cheap myself.

I have Jett boots from italy. Not to bad they're a cheaper alternative then sidi's. hinged ankle and not bad once they're broke in but they take a while to break in.

Any recommendations for best affordable? I can't bring myself to spend hundredSSS of dollars on boots, but I don't want to get cheap crappy ones.

Look up brands like Answer, Fox, Thor, MSR... They will all have a lower cost boot. Keep in mind these boots take a bit to break in, and expect to pay at least $120. I personally would not trust anything cheaper.

Another thing to look for is closeout items, stuff that is out of date is oftem marked down significantly. Rocky Mountain ATV MC has close out specials all the time. Just shop around, you should be able to find a good deal somewhere. I will agree with Stoopidbot, you do want to get a decent boot, look for a deal, but I wouldn't buy some crap boot, they won't last and you will spend more on crap in the longrun anyhow. Good luck with the search.

Here is a link to a thread that RockymountainATV posted earlier.

I have a pair of Thor's, a little stiff when new, but once broken in they have been very comfortable. Going on thier 5th year now, and are wairing pretty good, no broken buckles, but they come loose as i ride. Pretty good for a lower priced boot. When i can afford it i'm looking into getting a pair of SIDI adventure rain boots, which are supposed to be water resistant.

THOR quadrants for almost ten years now. VERY durable but not very flexible... reasonably priced- they are still under$150 I believe.

      I need to figure out how to clean/fix or replace my neutral switch assembly On my 2008 Yamaha big bear 400 as generally the neutral light doesn’t come on when it is in neutral. To get it to come on I have to wiggle the foot shifter and hold it in just the right spot.
      I have googled it and can’t find much on the 400’s. I can’t find a service manual online and the parts manual is super vague.
      I think it is in the right side engine cover area, but not certain. 
       Any help would be great. thanks

      So my Yamaha grizzly 700 wasn't going into reverse for some reason but Jon and George figured it out on what to do to fix that problem for me. Jon Talks about how he was able to fix that problem my Yamaha Grizzly was having with the reverse.
      On a side note we are so close to 1k subs! hell ya!

      I am struggling to find boots that will fit my large calves. I'm not a large person just muscular calves. I wear a women's size 7 but have tried on up to my boyfriend's size 10. Surely there is something out there.... I can't be the only person struggling

      New user and first time quad owner. I recently got a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 and am really excited to start working on it! I work in IT for a living and am an experienced mechanic, so at least I am not starting at 0 haha.  Looking forward to hanging out and getting to know everybody!

      Hey All,
      Looking for some recommendations on an ATV for my Daughters-in-law to ride when they visit with my sons. We ride mostly woods trails. It needs to be fairly easy to ride, automatic is't necessary but shifting should be forgiving and it needs to be under $2000. I have a Banshee and a Polaris Sportsman 500HO now.
      One DIL is tiny, 5' and about 100lbs, the other is about 5'8" and 130lbs. I'm concerned that steering on the Sportsman may require too much upper body strength and the Banshee is definitely not a beginner's ride.
      I'm thinking about a Warrior (may be under powered) or a Honda 400EX but I'd love to hear what others might suggest?
      Thanks!

      Went for a ride at Murdock Basin, which is on the South side of the Uinta Mountains. I hadn't been there in about 13 yrs & I had forgotten just how rocky this area is. I did ride some trails I hadn't ridden before & even found one short ATV trail.
      I had the "Check Engine - Transmission Signal Fault" message, but the bike never did go into limp mode, so I just kept riding & a little while later, the message disappeared, so all is good. I did check the wires when I got home & put some dielectric grease on the connection thou.
      Over all, it was a great day of rid'in, I hope you enjoy the video.
