I see a lot of money and discussions about shocks and springs, etc. Seems to me an ATV should be stored (4-6 months) off the ground?

I'd have no reason to own an atv if I was going to leave it stored half the year. Mine go just about every day 365.
If you're going to leave one sitting for that long, there's other things you need to worry about than shocks and springs. You need to drain all the fuel, fog the engine, remove the battery and keep it maintained, block all orifices and take steps to protect against wiring damage from rodents and to keep them from setting up housekeeping inside your machine. I suppose you could build a hoist system to suspend it from the ceiling and that would take the weight off the suspension while making it inaccessible to critters at the same time.

Well I run a sled for those other months. I just mean floor jack it up and put it on 4 x 4 blocks under it. Is it worth the effort ... I think it is. Thanks
