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.

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.

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:

      So I wanted to start a thread about modifications on ATVs OR SXSs that makem look sick or run better.  It can be any modification from new handlebar grips to a winch to an added lightbar, but I was focusing on tries and rims.  Here are some of my simple additions to my Bayou 300:  I put looker front shocks on it, added a 2500 winch, replaced the headlight with a blinding 6in light bar, and added new and bigger rims and tires: 





      and just for clarification, all the pics are of it with the lightbar on it, the last one is of the stock headlight.

      So here’s a question. I have seen a few members that have recently purchased a used bike.   Also a HUGE amount of so called new members who have purchased a used bike and have come here “just here for a manual”.
      Some have been disappointed with the bikes and or knew they were getting a broken bike with some mechanical  experience thinking hey I can fix it.   So here’s my take on buying a used bike. Anyone who has followed some of mine and other members posts about what to look for when buying a used bike here’s a few pointers on what to look for. 
      1. I always check the oil and look for moisture, metal shavings and color. 
      2. Feel the compression or take a compression tester with you. 
      3. Check for spark (if the bikes not running)
      4. Take a small jumper pack to verify that the starter cycle works and the bike cranks.
      5. Look for bent or cracked frame/welding that was done on the frame from maybe a wreck.
      5. Mismatch plastics by looking under neath.  
      7. Bolts on the engine/frame that look like they are stripped from someone taking the bike apart. 
      8. Any kind of scilicone or gasket adhesive that was used on a cover plate or engine seem where the engine was taken apart.  
      9. Patches on the exhaust pipes with sheet metal or jb weld patch material.  
      10. Wiring messes on the harness like bundles of tape where the harness was opened up and taped up  for an after market device or just plain butchered up.  
      11. Put the bike in gear (running or not) and roll the bike back and forth to see that the gears work and you feel resistance like the engine is trying to spin while pushing it forward as if you were push starting it   
      12. I keep a vin# decoder website on my phone as a favorite to double check the year of the bike .
      All though nothing is fool proof these tips will help you along while buying a used bike. Not only that but  it will help you negotiate a fair price for a bike that may have one of the above problems.  
      I have minimized this entire process down to about 15 mins. I buy all the time so I don’t expect you to do the same or have a compression tester etc but use some of these tips when buying and go into the purchase with confidence! 
      I would like to hear anyone else that has any input on buying a bike and what to  look for!

      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.

      Happy New Year all! Remember not to operate any vehicles while under the influence, you could get busted or worse, you could get hurt or hurt someone else who's playing it safe and end up in jail. Have fun and be safe.

      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)

      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.

      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

    • By BigTrees
      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!
