Mudlite tire question

26 posts in this topic

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

u also have to pay attention to stress on the engine and tranny cause the bigger the tires the more the engine has to work. wat terrain do u drive one (rocky, muddy,sand). Finally if you get the 26's would you have enough space between the plastic and tire?

25 inchers and a clutch kit. A guy on another forum has done this also. He said a clutch kit is a must.

Never put one in myself, but have riden belt drives that have a clutch kit. Have been told if you can change a belt , you can put a clutch kit on. It makes one heck of a difference in how they perform.

I don't know the cost. It changes the shift points basically. Makes a belt drive engage sooner and work/ perform better. Gorrilla axles has the best clutch kit, highlifter has a good one to.

I dont understand why i would need a clutch kit with the 25's since the kodiaks came with 25's stock unless they 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.

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?

they usually come in a lot of colors but not for that machine.

only brushed and polished aluminum

but they make color tips.

i would say polished alumunum and a blue turndown tip.

that would look soooo good on there..

it is somewhere around 270$ i think.

not bad at all. :yes:

      Ok, so got this thing, assembled, and even added acid/assembled the battery with a solid trickle charge and the battery is fine.
      As far as I can tell, I have checked all the fuses I can find, but I have ZERO power to anything. Even the console will not light up when turned to ON.
      Is there some sort of hidden parental/child disconnect or safety switch that I'm not aware of? ANY help would be appreciated.

      I have a Chinese Hybird 250 or that's what I was told it was. I found 17 numbers on the frame. Will these numbers tell me exactly what it is that I have? (I know that its a 2006 from a plate on the front)

      Hey all, new guy here. I am wondering if anyone has one of these machines, that can possibly take a picture/tell me where the hoes goes from the timing chain cover. I took this machine apart in the fall of 2014, planning to rebuild the top end, and didn't get around to doing it until about a month ago. motor is back together, and I'm just curious as to where this hose goes. One end has a plastic ribbed fitting in it.
      Also, the rear upper nipple on the carburetor.....what goes there? is that just a breather also or?
      I have the rubber piece that slides into the rear of the gas tank with 3 hoses: 2 go to the rear, and 1 is just a clear piece of hose that isn't connected anywhere.
      I have another one of these machines, but it is 5 hours away.
      I guess that's what I get for waiting a year and a half to put it back together lol.
      Thanks

      Hello everyone, I have a new to me 86 Bayou 300 that I just bought last night to get around the property. It wouldn't start when I bought it but it did turn over with starting fluid, PO said the carb neeeded cleaned. I cleaned the carb today but need to get the choke wired up as it was not wired up when purchased.
      I'm hoping one of you can help me get this choke wired up. Coming from the carb it has 2 wires. 1 is yellow and 1 is black. The PO said I needed to ground one and put the other one on a switch.
      Should I do it this way or is there another/better way to do it? I'd really appreciate any help I could get!! Thanks in advance!
