This guide will give you a spring maintenance checklist to help you with preparing your ATV for spring, how to change ATV oil, how to clean ATV air filter, how to check tires, how to protect tires from flats, and more.

Change Oil and Oil Filter
Changing your oil and oil filter is an essential part of ATV or SxS maintenance. Doing oil changes when necessary will keep your vehicle’s engine in good condition. Check out this video for a detailed explanation of how to change the oil in an ATV.
Check and Clean Air Filter
Your air filter is crucial to keeping your ATV or SxS in good running condition. Be sure to check and clean your air filter this spring before using your vehicles. For more information on ATV air filters, watch this video on ATV maintenance.
Your vehicle can’t run without a battery, so be sure to check your battery this spring. Thankfully, checking your battery is easy thankfully. Simply acquire a multimeter and hook it up to your battery. If it’s dead, try charging it. If that doesn’t work, it’s time for a new battery.
Check Tires and Tire Pressure
Tires are one of the most important parts of any vehicle. If your tires are flat, you’re stuck. Check your tires and tire pressure while doing spring maintenance. Checking your tires and tire pressure is as simple as inspecting the tread and using a tire gauge to check the pressure. Don’t skip out on this small but important piece of spring maintenance. Don't’ have a tire gauge? They are inexpensive and can be purchased online.
