Just wash it off after every ride.

I have to add something here... Road salt should be washed off the whole quad... in this case salt on the wheels would be the least of your problems. Salt in ANY form ( road salt, sea salt) is not good to leave on your quad... unless you want your quad to rust before your very eyes.

One of the places I ride is Pismo Beach... The dunes are inland from the beach and are dry sand. But since the sand was blown in from the beach, it has loads of salt locked up in it. That salt is released when there is moisture... I very seldom use a pressure washer on my quad... except after riding at Pismo. Too much fricking fun to ride there, so I do the best job I can with the clean up.

I ride quads on the roads all the time in NY in the winter, it is fun when there is a state of emergency to go and do donuts around a state trooper car. Anyway, if you do it, just get used to taking the plastics off and washing everything down, then dry it some how (air compressor) and wash it again. It can get tedious, but it is so much fun.

yeah It was a blast riding my 250ex on the snow covered roads. I loved it and can't wait till I get to ride my 700xx on a snow covered road before they plow and salt it.

There are lots and lots of holes on the frame. Look at the two uprights on the back of the frame. You'll see two 1/4 inch holes I would spray a LOT of WD40 or something like that in their prior to riding and after I washed it.

The underside of the frame has a few spots in teh front that hole mud and whatnot - pay special attention to those too.
