Curious as to where people place their tie downs on the XX when the trailer it.
Actually that's great info. I'll have to check the manual. I guess my biggest concern is keeping the shocks from being damaged especially if I ever get Elkas or Foxes that cost a ton of money.Not being a smart-ass, but the owner's manual tells you where to tie down at. I use the foot pegs.
There isn't really anyway to damage them unless you tighten it down so much that it compresses the shocks the whole way, and then you travel forever like that. I haul my motorcycle all the time in the back of my truck, and I just use two tie downs for the front, but I compress the heck out of the forks (make them go down 3"s or more) to make sure if I stop quick that they won't compress more and the straps loosen up. If you adjust yours so they pull the shocks down about 1/2 of an inch (more or less depending on how soft your compression is) then you should be good to go which out ruining anything.Actually that's great info.

I also do not transport my quad in gear. I never thought it was a good idea and also don't know if is a myth that it could damage the tranny. I'm hard enough on my tranny as it is without rolling the dice some more.I do NOT however engage the transmission on any quad I transport, I have been told that doing so and hitting bumps on the road would cause the tranny gears to smash together damaging the gears. This might be a myth but for the sake of a long lasting transmission I do not transport with the gears engaged.
