As much as I think it is going to be a stupid thing , specially if you like to go deep , snorkeling the battery box is going to be tuff , you might even get electrocuted when submerged , but I think there is going to be a market for them soon , if any of the Democrats hopefuls get into the White House , listening to the dem's debates I hear they are all on the band wagon to do away with all fuel burning engine , 2025 was Elizabeth Warrens promise if she is elected -----so this is going to open a totally new market , I am already thinking of how I am going to retro fit my 300 to electric , there is one problem I foresee , how do I get to the parts stores without a truck ---- if you like riding atvs and your truck , then wake up people you are being lead like sheep to the butcher block , baaaaaaaa !

I can see it now , Da'New Green Deal decals on garbage trucks , the kind that lift the cans hydraulically over the side to dump the cans , except this truck picks up atvs and utvs , they are going to pull up to your house and load up your atv for recycling , lmfao

Back to mechanics , how many batteries would it take to power a 300 ? Would guess at least 6 6volts like a golf cart ..... I can't wait for the future , so many opportunities on the horizon , maybe I can do a solar powered utv where the roof is solar panels !!!

I think a lot of folks claim things, and then realize the reality of making them claims come true is NOT a reality!

when a lot fo mass shooting happened yrs back, many states mandated that guns KNOW There owners to be able to be fired or would not be legal
and well, there dates came and went and know what< NO guns like this exists
was a campaign promise that went NO where due to tech isn't there to make it possible

as for making an atv with electric, the torque factor can be amazing on electrical things, so, it should be do able to turn big aggressive tires LOL

the problem will honestly be, having enough battery life without the battery's being so huge and heavy

there is no current way to make solar panels that will maintain and charge a running unit, you would need many many feet of panels to even come close,
some of the newer batteries there making are getting smaller and holding charges longer,
but there far from close enough IMO to do much
you water guys fight electrical issue's now, a whole power plant of electric, will get costsly when wwater gets in IMO<
good luck sealing things enough!

BUT Harley Davidson just released a bike that is electric
so> gather they have something figured out some there?

Well, thats why you need a 2 stroke gas generator onboard to keep the batteries charged:LOL:

as far as i have learned, energy can not be created not destroyed, only transferred.. probably Newtonian thinking.. if you get rid of fossil fuels, you just got wind, or sun. there is a way around, this, should you not have enough wind, or sun. it involves a bicycle, type thing, where you pedal, to charge a generator type thing. ever seen the insurance commercial, with the guy with the big calves. so when you get this electric atv, how long do you want to pedal, to get in the mud?
a battery that big? sore calves?
lets go on a ride, charge your batteries? that wont last long..
those in power, will be laughing, riding in their private planes, or any-other way, of transport that is for the top.. hollowood, said, when it comes to the carbon footprint, dont include us, Mr. President Obama.. Harrison Ford, said the carbon foot print was bad. 5 or 6 planes, a helicopter, an who knows what else. should we all have this. you dont want me to fly that private jet..
seriously, i wouldnt be able to print after that. it would be a good ride, as long as it lasted..
i might even buzz your house. rather sit in a chair, drink a beer.. just give me a place to sleep in the shed, where i can be warm, and ya dont have ta hear me snoring..
what were we talking about again??

'Ted , you should know me by now = sarcasm is my middle name ---- electric atvs are for kids in the yard and tree hugging snowflakes who believe in climatic change ( global warming ) being caused by man

why do ya think i like ya so much.. give a snowflake, an electric atv, they will get a tax write off, then they will get the real thing, and write it off also.. but demand everybody else get an electric.. OK, throw out the bait, and reel one in.. sometimes, i am too easy.
besides, the batteries, would be so big, were it electric, you wont need a snorkel, you shouldnt anyway.. just take AOL, with you. whether its a sinker, or a floater, the mud is the same. im sure she has some batteries, she always looks like she is over charged.. college, aint much anymore.
how could ya pay that much, an be dumber that when ya went in.. Berkley, is the place to go. you can get taught how to live on a sidewalk in kalifornia.. when the homeless, make their way to hollowood,... dont know why they havent, seems like the pickens would be good. just think of those women, on the VIEW, bet they got plenty of room for tents, and no sidewalks, to burn up on. while you, are zoned out. besides, ya would be doing a great service, by fertilizing their lawn. hollowood stars cant say much,,.. if they do, the myth they preach, will reveal itself. do as i say, not as i do..
i wonder if that Baldwin, with the temper, walks in frisco, on the sidewalks. after he stepped on a few needles, and got bit a few times, somebody knocked him down, an took his shoes,.. temper is relative.
sarcasm, is only one thing, cynicism, another, many other terms.
do you know how to make a Cuban chilli?
1st, you cook some burger, drain the grease out, add chopped onions, diced mators, mator sauce, chill powder, some cumin, other ingredients, and
then,
ya stick a popsicle of their butt...:)

They can do it , but it is very expensive and don't last long till you need to replace the batteries , last night on Iron Resurrection , Shaggy got to drive the Zombie car , got to be a brazillionaire to afford it , but that is where we are headed , two classes , rich and famous and the surfs

I really do see bad times for us atv riders in the coming future if the dems regain control , we will be riding buses and riding bicycles to work at minimum wage jobs , eating vegan Whoppers and Taco Bell tacos , if you like to ride 4 wheelers , you better wake up

What’s your point? That all you got? ‘two posts’.
Wasn’t saying I’m buying one tomorrow. And numbers don’t really bother me. Sorry brother.

i figured it out.. an electric motor, powered by a generator, an a gasoline engine. ya still need a snorkel, but ya dont need a battery per say. just enough to excite the field. ya can go deeper than ya ever wanted to, still need a snorkel, for the small gas engine, should this work somewhat, you wont need a snorkel, yourself. best i figure, this will go deep. way deep.. those that try this can send me an e-mail, when they survive. :ROFLMAO:

if (IF) they finally get battery cells that are lightweight, efficient, have reasonable mha endurance, and are comparably affordable to combustion systems...yeah, I'd be all about it...I love the tone of the muffler on my 300, but I'm good to go DC if they can ever get the tech to a true consumer level. But i want the free market economy to create it, not because of some overlording politicians "religion"..and brother, that's what the whole Climate change thing has become for some folks....
I enjoy my golf cart..and it's pretty cool what a 3hp motor can do, but yeah, the battery bank needed to drive 500amps converting enough watts to make that happen?...that's not gonna fit into an e-bike or quad etc. there are some cool single rider 2wheel ebikes hitting the market...but so expensive. that said, there are days when I just want a nice quiet stroll through our property with the wife...and i just pull the golf cart up to the door, she hops in, I toss my arm around her on the back of the bench seat and we quietly slip along the property with little more than the sound of the whirling electric motor and drivetrain....11 miles later, i best be on my way back to the shed to plug in.
