Top Accessories to Upgrade ATVs

You know your ATV is running with untapped potential. Sure, four wheelers straight off the showroom floor are exciting. But your machine is capable of so much more speed, agility, and performance. Accessories boost the experience of riding quads. We rounded up the top ways to upgrade ATVs below. Remember you can always bring any questions (or work done on your ATV) to Family Powersports Odessa. We proudly serve those near Midland, Texas.

LED Lighting

Most four wheelers come with standard halogen lights. These are cheap to produce, but poor in quality. They are great for the manufacturer, but not the customer. A better option is LED lighting. These drain less energy, produce stronger light beams, and last longer. They cost more upfront, but you quickly earn back the cost since they need to be replaced less often.


Quads are designed to go in the backwoods, where the roads are simple dirt paths. You don’t get the luxury of navigating by street names or using odd-shaped buildings as landmarks. It’s much easier to get lost driving four wheelers in nature then driving them in the city. Your cell phone coverage will be sporadic and unreliable (and using your phone’s GPS will drain the battery quick). A much better solution is to install a GPS into your ATV.

Expanded Storage

Four wheelers offer some storage, but a limited amount. If you ever plan on camping with ATVs, you will struggle to fit all your gear. Add storage to your quad to fit everything you need. More storage also helps you keep valuables safe from the sun, wind, and rain.

A Winch

Four wheelers are built to tear up rugged, uneven terrain. It’s exciting, but it’s also difficult to maintain traction. Even the best riders can lose traction. A winch helps pull you to more steady ground.

Protective Gear

These aren’t accessories for the quads themselves, per say. But they are accessories to upgrade your ATV ride! Wearing the right gear helps keep your ride comfortable and safe.

To start, you’ll want long sleeve clothing. Your skin gets exposed to many things as you ride, from hot sun rays that create blistering sunburns to kicked-up debris that causes scratches. Clothing helps guard against these issues.

Another piece of gear is a helmet. Anyone who rides four wheelers needs to protect their head! Quads undergo a different type of crash than a motorcycle or bike, so you’ll need a full-face helmet covering your head and mouth. It should be snug, but not tight.

You will also want eye protection. Some helmets come with a face shield, which works well. If yours doesn’t, you will want a pair of goggles. You need something to block out the bugs, debris, and wind.

Lastly, take a pair of riding gloves. It’s important you are able to grip the handlebars without issue. Hot days and rain cause wet hands, which slip and slide about. Wind makes cold hands shiver and shake. Gloves help you keep the necessary friction to stay in control.

These accessories help outfit your quad with the basics for a fun and comfortable ride. If you have any questions about the upgrade process, visit Family Powersports Odessa.
