Best/worst atv tires

Recommended Posts

My experience for my 98 sportsman. .keep on mind it has the smaller rear rim so my tire choices are not all that great ...

Best...  Goodyear mud terrain. Long lasting awesome all around great tire.  No longer available of course 

Worst. ...super swamper vampire . Too soft. Ended up on gravel a few times over a few months of winter snow riding. . Burned down from 1.5 inch paddle to 1 inch in no time. Junk. But if you are able to 100% stay in soft terrain they are insane 

Current. . Mud lites . Pretty decent.  But I miss my Goodyears

I have always run Dunlops on my quads.  They seem to work really well in the mix of terrain and snow I ride in.  My local shop sells them and they are in the budget, so I stick with them.

I had Dunlops on my predator.  Awesome sand tire. Perfect for what I doing at the time. Maybe one year I'll get off my wallet and get an outlaw 525.. got too beat up on the predator .

If I had a bigger budget my dream setup would be an Outlaw or Predator hooking up on Maxxis Razr.  All my fun money was coming from my Ebay store and sponsors I was able to get through social media. The last two years included a new baby, multiple job changes, and several injuries, so not enough riding time to keep on that roll.

A new baby alone would eat up any extra money you had for sure .  

I liked the predators solid axle for sliding into and out if corners.  Was sick. In worried that the irs outlaw would hook too much

ROFL In my dream garage I have a Predator sitting next to a 77 Bandit Trans Am.  In my real garage I have a Trailblazer 250 sitting next to an 82 Trans Am.  I got pretty close eh!!

I'm running Kenda Bearclaws on mine, they seem to be a great tire for what I'm using them for.  I don't do any muddin' so.....they are great for the mountain trails I'm riding.  Had  one set on for two seasons now and don't seem to be hardly worn.  You guys are lucky, you at least have a dream garage.

      Hey, how's it going?
      I'm a new member looking to get some advice before I go to check out a '14 Sportsman 800.  I wanted to get input from you guys that have experience with Polaris machines. I've been riding my whole life, dirt bikes and atvs... Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, but never Polaris.  I'm looking for advice on what I should be looking for, any common issues, really any general advice.  I couldn't find many reviews of the Sportsman 800 online, so and general reviews on quality/reliability would be great too.
      A little info on the machine. 
      -2014 800 EFI
      -640 miles, 77hrs.
      -Winch
      -Asking price is $5500
      Couple add ons: (nothing major) 
      -Aftermarket wheels with Maxxis tires
      -Front and rear brush bumpers
      -LED lights
      Probably going to see it in the next couple days. I'll make sure to check out all the basics... Fluids, front end, tires, suspension etc.  Plus anything else you guys recommend.
      Thanks for any advice on advance!

      Hey Guys,
      I just bought my first Quad, a 2014 Sportsman 400 HO and want to replace the battery. It's not dead, but the voltage seems low and I'm not sure how old the battery is. What does everybody recommend for a replacement battery? Is there a difference that I should know about? I see Gel batteries, Regular Acid sealed batteries and a lot of different prices. Any help would be appreciated.

      Fixing up a 1998 King Quad 300. The rear brake was locked up, and the owner tried to force it free and snapped the axle.
       
      I disconnected the brake cable, and tapped on the backing plate with a soft mallet to get the brake freed up. When I pulled off the brake drum a bunch of nasty rust water came out.
       
      Once I had the axle out, I popped the boot off so I could see the inner u joint so I could phase/synchronize it with the outer. There was a flat steel disc floating around in the boot, looks like it used to be pressed into the end of the axle. Glad I got that out of there before it munched up the joint.
       
      The book says the yokes should be aligned, I couldn't get mine aligned. They were always 7 degrees off from each other. A bit frustrating, maybe that's within the tolerance limits?
       
      But I got it all back together and it runs great.

      Does anybody know how to determine which of the 2 key blanks fits my ATV. I have called several dealers, and Polaris and nobody seems to know which key fits which ATV. I thought with the ViN number they could look it up, but apparently not. I hate to spend the money at Polaris for a key blank and then pay a locksmith to cut it, but the locksmiths around me don't have the Polaris keys in stock. I find them on Amazon and places, but I can't tell which key blank is right for my ATV. Any help would be appreciated.

      Does everyone run the tire pressure as stated on tires or perhaps a couple # below to soften the ride a little?
