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.

Nice, sounds like you got a good deal!

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.

      The quad has done this off and on, almost since new, but it's gotten worse this year. Sometimes if I freshly charge the battery, it'll work fine, others times that won't matter. Turning the key to on it sounds like it's connecting as I go to the start position, slightly before the full turn, but it's not like there is just a sweet spot to find, it's totally erratic.
      Now the battery is basically dead so I put a new, slightly bigger AGM battery in today to replace the factory one with all of 800 miles on it, but those have lots of plowing hours included. 
      I was able to get it started once, but it still went into limp mode after just a few moments of driving it (that's another topic), so I put it back in the garage and started probing around. Now it doesn't even try to turn over.
      Is an ignition switch, the $18 shipped aftermarket variety on Amazon worth a shot? Or should I go straight for the starter? The new switch may not come for over a week, so I hate to just put my hopes in that if I'm missing something obvious. Fuses are good, so it's not something super obvious.

      After purchasing a lightly used 2018 570SP (300 miles on it) I noticed that the display was flashing on and off. I remember reading awhile back that this was a common problem on the 18 model. I can't remember what the fix is. It also turns over slow even though the battery is charged. Anybody know what the fix is on this issue?
      Thanks

      Hey there, i have recently put a new drive belt on my 11 Polaris Sportsman 500 H.O.    It has 44 miles since putting the new belt on and should be nearly broken in as i hear it takes 50 miles to do so?  Anyhow it has had a little trouble with slipping since i put the new one on a few months ago. Now whenver i go down a hill the belt seems to be getting caught in one clutch if not both and then it has to run a high rpm just to go a low speed.  Today it did that again going down hill, i stopped, put it in neutral and when going back up the hill i had to turn it off, put it in neutral, let it roll back down the hill a little, then restart it, low range and it was slipping but thankfully i was able to make it up the hill. 
       
       So what might the problem be? Is this a need for another new belt? New clutches and belt? Or just get something else? BTW the brand new belt i put on it, is a factory one, an exact replacement for the original.
