2017 KING QUAD 750 TIRE QUESTIONS

Recommended Posts

Howdy

So my stock 2017 750 KQ came with Carlisle AT489 Bias Tires

On Amazon these seem to have excellent reviews although the thing I here the most cumulatively on the forums is the first thing to change is the tires. 

Are these tires all that bad? They seem to be holding up nice and i go on some pretty serious black diamond trails. Granted this is my first ATV purchase and i don't really have anything long term to compare these to. 

Please lace me up if im missing something here because if buying a new set of tires will increase performance - reliability- comfort - im all for it... Also if you guys could recommend some tires for the trails I'd appreciate it. I don't mud and don't plan to if that helps narrow down the search.

They should be fine unless you are looking to upgrade them. The stock tires aren't the most aggressive but still good. I had a 700 king quad and got through all kinds of terrain with stock tires.

Here was my favorite:

 

If you look on Amazon at a few Carlisle tires, as you mentioned, you'll see some pretty good reviews.

Carlisle AT489 All-Season Bias Tire - 25/10-12 84B 4 1/2 stars with 90 reviews

Carlisle AT489XL ATV Tire - 25X8-12 4 1/2 stars with 63 reviews

Also to follow up on this topic, I currently have a yamaha grizzly with upgraded quadboss tires and rims which makes the quad sit higher and feels more aggressive which is great in the snow and mud but a bit overkill on regular trails and rips up my grass when rising around my house...lol. I recommend them if you like go in mud, water, snow riding, etc. In my opinion, if you like the feel and ride of stock tires just keep using them. If you want deeper traction and a more aggressive look, upgrade them. The skinnier and smaller the front tires are, the easier the turning is (manual steering).

      Charging issue?
      I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI. Yesterday, I start the machine and it says low power (10.6-10.8). This machine is on its second battery. This is a new AGM battery with 50cca more than stock.
      Should I look at the regulator or stator?
      Thanks!!!

      Does anyone know of a tall windshield option for a 2017 Sportsman 850? I was looking at the Polaris one (need to buy the fairing and the windshield separate) but I was curious if anyone has tried any aftermarket and liked them?

      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

      The tires which I bought on ebay cannot be balanced, it’s out of round.Tried riding and had wobble. 
      It was mounted in shop and they also put it on a rim they had sitting in the shop and same issue to confirm it.
      Are they defective ?
      They have brand new high quality tires for my  old suzuki gsxr750 and want about $600 for two tires.
      Is it worth it to pay that much or buy another set of front rear tires like Hexautoparts which has good reviews on trustpilot.com?
      Any recommendations ?
      Thank you.

      Hi, I'm a newbie on here.  I just got a 2007 Suzuki KingQuad LT-A450X.  Are there any specific issues to look for on this model?  Any specific maintenance to do other than the usual oil and filter changes?  
      Thanks

      Does anyone know the exact name of this part? Bottom of tire is tilting in Under the bike and top or tire is tilting out away from the bike. Not terrible but it’s a little 90 for kids want to make it safe. Just need to know exactly what the part is called.

      Just bought 06 KingQuad 700 and first ride out hit a mud hole, not to deep and it shut off and would not start. 
      Got it home and found the spark plug hole was full of mud and water. Went and bout a new spark plug and began cleaning it out. Put a deep socket in there and it wouldn’t grab. Took a pic with my flash and this is what I see. Any suggestions? And what is it??
       
      previous owner said it had a new coil so that’s why I decided to change out the spark plug, also ordered new coil should be here by the weekend.
