Did lots of looking at you tubes and checking prices, finally landed on the Bearclaw HTRs.  Found a set of 4 on Amazon for $396 when many places were almost $500.  I did look at going for 14 inch wheels like Ajmboy because they sure look cool but the difference in weight was not that much so reeled in my impulses and stayed with the stock 12 in wheels.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Can you put tubes in a leaking tire?  The tread is good and I am trying to save some money. Thanks

I love Kenda tires!  Are the Bear Claws good in mud?

 

So far I am happy with them, and yes they are good in mud.    I checked out a lot of comparisons one you tube video tested the top rated tires and the bear claws did well.  I did check out the top rated tires and they were far more expensive.  I feel like the bear claws are good tires at a reasonable price.  I mounted them myself using a harbor freight tire machine.  If I was doing it again I would take them to the tire shop for mounting.  So far if I had to buy another set I would stick with the bear claws.  Hope that helps you.

      2000 Sportsman 335 lost the speedo functions. Don't need the speedo but need AWD.  Is there a wiring bypass that can be done to activate AWD ?

      I am trying to figure out a way to make my high beam include the 2 front lights that come on in low beam mode. As it sits now I need to use the low beam to see the trail in front of me but can't see far ahead. On high beam I can see ahead but miss most of the trail right in front of me. Does anyone know of a kit that would mate the two front lights to the main headlight on high beam ?

      Hi, I'm new to this forum and am in desperate need of help. I recently purchased a 05 polaris sportsman 90. The quads motor runs great. The quad will not accelerate forward. If it does its slow and will eventually pick up speed and then runs unbelievable. It has great power and torque in reverse but couldn't go over a twig in forward. I'm lost, any help would be greatly appreciated. The belt is in good condition and the and drained the trans oil and there is no metal shavings
