stability

I have recently acquired bored out 90cc AEM (polaris) four wheeler. I got it going pretty fast but it becomes unstable and the slightest turns at speed will make it flip. I was thinking about maybe extending the wheels out by a few inches for stability but idk where to start or what to do. I would also like to hear if there is a better idea to make it more stable.

Your on the right track

I used wider tires and offset rims to make my ATV more stable. Huge difference! the only trouble is it barely fits on my trailer now lol

speed

then maybe just the offset rims and you may even be able to buy lighter ones which would increase your speed a little

help

No problem , I put a lift on my machine without wider rims. long story short I ordered rims and tires they sent the wrong ones. I could not wait so rode it anyhow, 4 broken ribs later i rolled it sideways fishtailing a little. thats when I got wider tires and rims fast!
