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

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.

is a clutch kit hard to install?
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.

is it expensive? and wat does it do?
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.

    • Thinking of buying a Honda 500 pioneer in the future

      I'm really considering this utv. Before any negative comments about this machine remember I did everything I wanted with a 250 Ozark. My 09 rubicon was over kill. I'll use it for snow plowing bulldozing logging and cruising. So I can spend 8,500 on a ruby or the 500 pioneer.

    • Buying used - here's the seller's story - sound legit?...

      Here's the deal... I'm a first time atv buyer and have been studying hard all aspects of buying and evaluating these things for a used purchase. Now after months of looking everywhere I finally found a local private seller through word of mouth that may be offering a hell of a deal. Story is... Guy's got a 2012 Yamaha Griz 550 w/ EPS with 2900 miles and 250 hours on it and hes asking $4900. Says he got it from NPA? in Cincinnati for $4400 and paid $125 to ship it. After new tires, brakes and oil he says he's got $5000 into it coming from a dealer-only wholesale auction. I've only got $4500 to spend and really stressed that and he says he'll sell it to me if the guy coming on Friday doesn't pay the full $4900 price he's asking. So yeah fairly excited about the prospects here. This one blue books for something like $5500-$5800 retail. But I'm still a little too wet behind the ears still to be confident about evaluating these things used so I'm cramming as much info as I can before I go take a look at it. So don't want to get burned. So couple questions... 1- I've seen some with more and less miles than the 2900 this one has. But have been taught it's not so much the mileage as how they were put on. Anyone have insight about this specific model with almost 3000 miles and 250 hours on it? 2- Are there any special problems the 2012 550 EPS Griz has that I should be looking out for?

    • New to ATV's: Buying Used Mojave- No Title/No Vin Common in IL?

      Hi everyone- first of all I am very new to the site, as well as very new to ATV's in general, and I could use some straightening out on this matter as I've had conflicting info given... Im thinking about getting 99 Mojave on craigslist for $800, and they were going to deliver to me as well which seemed nice (im about an hour away, we're both in IL). Well everything was fine, quad looked good, said it ran well but was cold blooded, and they are throwing in extra tires, frame, & shocks (they said shocks would need replaced soon) -Honestly I am not sure whether that alone is a decent deal or not, so an opinion on that would be welcome too. Anyway, real problem raised when I asked about a title: said they didn't have one, it wasnt necessary. Well, talking to a friend he said if I ever want to take it out to any parks or anything I'll need to have it registered and get a public access sticker. Said if the guy doesnt have a title I should get a bill of sale and have the guy email me the vin number so I could double check it wasnt stolen- when asked the guy about the vin and he got incredibly annoyed, said he works 12hr days and doesnt have time to check if it's even visible, and if the deal was off because of that then so be it... That's where we left off... So please, as Im very new to all this any educated opinion would be so welcome and greatly appreciated! I really don't want to make another move before I hear some advice from someone who knows what's what and am stuck in a bind until then Please let me know what you think, and thanks so much guys for helping this super-newbie! Also, here is the craigslist link for the guys ad incase it helps anything: https://peoria.craigslist.org/bar/4696776037.html

    • 03 Predator 500 bucks

      I have a 2003 Polaris predator. Been sitting for about 6-7 months. Put brand new gas in it, new plug, cleaned the carb. Starts up no problem. Idles well. As soon as I put it in first and release the clutch to ride it, it rides but kind of bucks a little. Like its not getting fuel. As I give it gas it like sputters and breaks up. If I stop put it in neutral it idles perfect. Any suggestions?? Thanks

      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)
    • By upper_tanker
      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!
