My only response to that is, how many championships has Honda won?

Back to the boots. I wear Fox trackers. They have mx sole but I like them. I also have a new pair of the AlpineStar low cut. They almost look like basket ball shoes.

trust me you'll get used to it...i use the steel tip of the boot to shift my gears ...took a little getting used to but once you get the boots broken in you'll be fine..they are pretty stiff when there brand spank...:laugh:

I had to move my shifter up a bit...I have the same boots...the black ones. It takes some time to get used to but you'll be fine :) Moving the shifter was a BIG help for me though.

If you wet them down and walk around in em some before you ride with em it will help in the break in.....once you break em in and get used to them I bet you will be able to leave the shifter in the normal position.

well that's something I didn't think of trying.....wish I woulda new that to starttttt :) Hopefully after a full season of racing, my boots are finally going to get as comfortable as they can be...just don't try to run in them...especially up a flight of stairs.....

bad things happen when you do:confused::goofy::embarrassed::biglaugh:

We have one place that we ride at where all of the trails start off of a creekbed.....I always plan a weekend trip there whenever I get a new pair of boots...the first day I will stay back at the camp walking up and down the creekbed while the family is riding and they will be good to go for the next day. I know of a few folks that will wear a new pair of boots in the shower a few times before they ride with em on.

      I have a 05 sportsman 700 carb and I also have tires and rims from an 19 Polaris General. Bolt pattern is the same. Do I need to change out the studs to be bigger?

      Just got a new to me, 99 Kodiak w/ plow and an extra set of tires for dirt cheap. I'm curious where you guys purchase your parts for your older ATV's? Google is great to find parts, but I'm hoping you guys have some stores, online, that you prefer on a recommendation basis. I've already purchased my tune-up items, but the brakes need some work and I'll likely end up having to replace the steering stem bearing, front CV axles and a few other things down the road.

      Happy New Year all! Remember not to operate any vehicles while under the influence, you could get busted or worse, you could get hurt or hurt someone else who's playing it safe and end up in jail. Have fun and be safe.

      First of all sorry I have been MIA here for a while, been busy with school and work.  I'll try and reply on some other threads asap, but posting this one because I just picked up a 2017 sportsman 570 before the new year and popped a boot on it going through a mud hole.  The former owner had aftermarket axles on it to accommodate the 4in lift and idk what brand they are but they're skinny as heck and idk what boot to buy to rebuild with?  It's the rear right lower boot (under the brake calp.).  I'll post some pics when I can and sorry again I've missed yall on the forum!
