PowerSports Place Upgrades 2012 Suzuki KingQuad 750 AXi


The mission was pretty straightforward: Take a brand-new quad and make it better.

So, the gang at PowerSports Place identified the upgrades they wanted to make to their 2012 Suzuki KingQuad 750 AXi (Base MSRP: $8,399) and assembled the parts. They were kind enough to let us tagalong for the build.

To do the job, the first order of business was acquiring a new ATV lift jack. They chose this:
