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.

      I am struggling to find boots that will fit my large calves. I'm not a large person just muscular calves. I wear a women's size 7 but have tried on up to my boyfriend's size 10. Surely there is something out there.... I can't be the only person struggling

      I have a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500. A year or so ago we got it running after replacing the kill switch. It ran great but after some use for a couple months it got a flat tire and for some reason we just forgot about it and it sat for some time. Before it sat i replaced the gas cap, fuel filter, fuel pump, petcock, battery, starter relay, oil and oil filter. I recently went to start it and it started so quickly and without choke or throttle but the ATV wouldn't move till about 1/4 throttle and it wasn't really a smooth ride until 1/2 throttle. it also would bog out randomly after you came to a stop and sounded like it was getting too much fuel. I cleaned the carb and adjusted the air/fuel screw to 1 3/4 turns out.  I also messed with the idle and the throttle cable adjuster up on the handlebars. It's safe to say it now runs worse than when i started working on it 2 days ago. It takes more effort to get started and bogs out idling after about 30 seconds. I tried adjusting the idle but every time i do it'll get to a sweet spot but after driving it down the driveway and back the idle will go up and down to the point where i can't put it in gear because the gears will grind. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
