Need riding gear opinions from all you ladies.

Recommended Posts

Well Im gonna start doing harescrambles on my quad, never did anything like it before so I never needed gear for it. Ive rode casual before and never wore any gear, i know i know I should of still worn some sort of protection... So Im gonna start with a helmet and chest protector. Im sure I can use most helmets but im worried about finding a chest protector. Im a lil bigger then average even tho Im losing weight and trying to get in shape for racing. So what do i do for a chest protector, do i go for only ladies or does it matter if I get a mens chest protector? I do have a wide chest so I worry if a ladies will fit me right or not. Every place I go in the area only carry mens so its hard for me to try a ladies on and im most likely gonna order it online cause its cheaper then ordering from the stores in my area. So any opinions? What has worked for you what hasnt? Any info would be great!! Thanks

Can't go wrong with Fox, they have been making riding gear pretty much since the sport began. I use a Fox chest protector and I think it is great. Too bad there aren't more ladies to chime in here, just a couple of guys, one of the gals may come along and offer some female opinions that you were looking for.

I have had both. I started with an oneal. Had to take the arm pieces off because when I would race motocross it would bruise my forearms. Now I have a womans and have no issues with the arm pieces. I do not have a models body. Lol And tried on a fox womans and I didn't like how it fit. The other difference between my new one and the mens oneal is the oneal was really tall. The womans comes about 3-5" above my belly button. I will look tomorrow to see what the brand is. It starts with an a.

If you're a bigger boned girl, it's hard to find gear that fits comfortably.....especially if you have bigger tatas too!! LOL-----I can't wear any girls gear, not even gloves....my hands are too big. So, I get hte girlie colored guys gear, orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr this year I got white gear and painted it pink and purple with fabric paint---I got quite a few comments on that!!!!

Right now I wear O'Neal gear, and it's some of my favorite. I've had Fox, Thor and Answer women's gear in the past and the men's O'Neal gear is by far the most comfortable I've worn yet...

      I have a 2005 Yamaha Kodiak 400 Automatic. It has an oil leak inside clutch cover. The middle gear has two oil seals, the front seal is leaking engine oil into clutch area. How do you change the leaking seal?

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      I just picked up a 2006 Kazuma Falcon 110 for my son. The previous owner ended up taking off the airbox and filter and replacing it with a cone style air filter and no airbox at all.
      My son loved to ride through puddles, big ones, with his Polaris Predator (before it got stolen) and I'm wondering if I buy the OEM airbox/filter for the Falcon, will it protect the engine from the puddle splashes. Someone told me the standard airbox may have vents that won't protect it.
      Anyone have experience with the Falcon and riding in wet conditions?
      Thanks in Advance.

      New to ATVing and by the end of the summer I'll probably be heading out into some remote mountain regions for some back country trail riding, and I'm wondering just what kind of stuff/tools etc I should bring along in case of breakdowns/events etc. Short list so far includes a GPS (probably a Garmin Montana 650T), a tire repair kit, and courtesy of my Mom one of those satellite personal locator beacons, probably the ResQLink+ from ACR.
      Any other suggestions for stuff that might come in handy?

      My son riding his LT160


      of course I took off the GoPro then we rode another new trail and he somehow got it upside down in a gulley 5 feet below a trail in a rat's nest of Prickers, trees, tall grass, weeds and tree braches. It took me 20 mins to get it out and it started right up! The LT160 is a tank. Wish I had GoPro on that ride
