Hillclimbs require tether's and just long pants, shirts, and boots above the ankles. As for motorcross on quads, i believe most of the time you have to have tethers there also.

I believe the rule book in AMA sanctioned racing specifies long sleeved shirt.

Ok, guys I am being a dumb girl here, but where can I get a tether for 92 LT250R ? I know my hubby wants to do some hillclimbs this year and he needs one.

Also, do any of you know of hillclimb races in the Western PA-Eastern Ohio area. We are going to West Virginia for some this month.

Pro design makes a tether. I have one on my quad. You can buy them just about anywhere they are not specific to a quad so find one you can buy one. Here are a couple companies that have tethers. Alba has the Pro-Design which I recommend. There is one selling on ebay right now for $18.00 you might see if you can get that one cheaper than alba. Rockymountain carries a different version which I have no opinion on since I never owned one.

Good Luck

I have a Pro Design tether on mine too. It's simple and effective. I don't have that whole key setup on mine. I just use the tether as the on/off switch. Just gotta remember to pull that thing out if I get stuck on a hill and try to turn it around.

I've watched the occasional idiot turn theres around on a hill and it rolls away from them and starts up. The best is when it runs itself right into a tree and bends the top a-arm like a pretzel.
