    What type fire extinguisher do you carry?

    I've been packing a 5lb ABC in the back of my storage compartment.

    I now have a roll bar mount for a 3lb.

    I never could understand the ratings where a Marine/White is rated B-C and Red A-B-C but people tend to carry the Marine like it's supposed to be better...?

    Just remember the P.A.S.S. method when using: pull, aim, squeeze, sweep. Just a little info to have in case you ride with popo's .

    I carry ABC... have a few friends who are Polaris owners.. just always remember (stupid to say but some forget in the moment) don't breathe it in or get it in your eyes (don't touch eyes after using) ... I have seen what it does to you and personally had it in my face...it will put you on the ground crying like a baby gasping for air...
