Mudlite tire question


Recommended Posts

I'm buying some mudlites tomorrow I can get 25 XL for 550 with type 5 rims shipped or should I go ahead and get the 26 XL for 50 bucks more. I been comparing weights and the 26 XL dont seem to be that much heavier than the 25 XL These are the weights I found from two different websites. These are going on a 06 Yamaha Wolverine 450 4X4

25x8-12 XL F/R 24

25x10-12 XL F/R 29

25x12-12 XL F/R 26

----------------------

26x9-12 XL F 22

26x10-12 XL F/R 23

26x12-12 XL R 27

============

XL 25x8-12 19.5

XL 25x10-12 22.5

-----------------------

XL 26x9-12 23.2

XL 26x10-12 22.9

XL 26x12-12 25.9

I dont understand why i would need a clutch kit with the 25's since the kodiaks came with 25's stock unless the put a lighter clutch in the Wolfy

yes the 25 XL has the same lug as the 26 XL 1 1/8 The 25 AT has the 3/4 lug

The chasis is the same, but the fine tuning is different than the Kodiaks . Sorry , just trying to save you some money down the road. Being a single range not a hi/low range tranny a clutch kit saves wear and tear on the belt. Just telling you what most mud boggers do.Same thing for the Scrambler owners to. Not to mention you won't notice as much of a power loss with a clutch kit going to bigger tires.

Ok thats what I wasnt sure of it yamaha tuned it different for the 23 inch tires Looks like i'll go with the 25's for now and then the clutch
Watch how hard you play in the mud until you get a clutch kit. We have a yamaha dealer that installs clutch kits for free if you buy tires and rims from them , wether a new quad or used. They swear by them.

now you know whatwould add to the performance and the look of this quad.

as soon as i seen the pic i thought.

that exhaust stands out. looks a little crappy. [no offense] :cute:

now picture an HMF sport series slip on.

Polished Aluminum with a Blue Turndown cap. and painted the back rack Black.

Now that would look.

BAAAADDDDDDD :yes:

I did paint the front bumper black along with the rear axle and differental. I was thinking about painting the rack black but as much as I use it I dont think the paint would last long. Maybe I should rhino coat it. After I get new black plastic the the whole thing will be done in black. I agree a pipe is one of the next things to get. Do they come in black?

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      Hello folks, my machine wound up with I think water in the tank etc. It runs but speeds up and slows back down randomly. When not running I don't see gas dripping  from the drain nipple on bottom of float bowl and drain screw is closed tight. With normal idle speed I see no leaking. When the idle speed increases quite a bit on it's own, gas appears to start slowly dripping from float bowl drain nipple? I'm wondering if the carb is flooding and the gas is actually coming from higher up and just appears, to be coming out of nipple but, is actually running down the sides of the nipple? I put a kit in the factory Mikuni carb last year after sitting for a while and I think the gas in the jug I used had drawn moisture. I plan to pull the carb tomorrow and clean everything out. I was just curious if anyone else thinks it's probably something in the carb and is, acutally a flooding problem? Thanks Folks! 🙂

      So I've got a Hisun 550 (clone of a Yamaha Rhino 660) that I was doing some work on that required removing the CVT and it's housing. Upon attempting to reinstall the clutch, sheaves, etc, I found that the belt no longer fits - it's far too wide. None of the parts have been replaced, they're all OEM. Exactly the same parts as what I took off a few weeks ago.
      To be more specific, my belt is 1.25in wide, but the gap between the clutch and the primary sheave is only 7/8in wide. I'll include a few photos to explain.
      Has anyone ever experienced such a bizarre problem? Any help at all would be appreciated, I've been stuck on this for a month. I'm open to just about any suggestion.

      Bucking started about a month ago and works ok after 1/2 hour warmup.  Today while working on it i discovered that if i put the ignition switch in LIGHT position it runs fine right from the start.
      I'm stumped!  Any idea why this could be?
