lite rear UTV tire sand use advice

Recommended Posts

Advice/recommendation on a set of lite rear UTV tires 26x11-12 needed for mainly very soft deep sand 65%, 15% gravel rd., 10% hard pack,  5% paved roads. 5% mud. All the reviews mention mainly mud lites, and very little sand lite tire brands! Looking for a tire that's lite but will dig well, reducing motor clutch overworking while slipping/spinning in lite sand. Appreciate any advice, Thanks, Steve

Need help from anyone that rides fast/hard long on lite tires under 25# on soft sand w/ little use on road/rock/mud/hard pack.

Heres a few brands that seem like the tire pattern I'm looking for on these reviews, but got me confused!

Maxxis Zilla ATV Tires 26-11-12 MZ41100 23.3 # 1.19480 $101.90
 I just read this review:
they run small and puncture way too easy
3 miles into the first ride with these tires one popped on a gravel trail, no sticks no sharp rocks, just class 5 gravel. also i bought 26x11x12 and the accrual height of the tire is 24.5" at 5psi. too short!

This tire is only 23-1/2" tall. Not even close to 26 inches tall as advertised.One Star

BIG HORN:
 seem to run heavy about 30#'s, compared to other lite brands.  Tread pattern doesn't match my front tires. Like Wanda or Mars nut they both are very narrow by 2''.

Kenda Bear Claw
reviews:
You get what you pay for. I thought I was getting a great deal on a pair of 25x10x12 tires until I got them mounted. They are much smaller than the stock tires I was replacing. They are aprox. 24" diameter. They blow up when adding air/ shred easily!  

GBC Spartacus  
Extremely heavy 30#'s, and 12'' W, not 11'' as needed, I have these mounted for rears now, look good, work well for plowing snow, but I'm afraid while riding fast and long trips, out most of the day in soft sand, they'll mess with clutch/belts!

Any one riding hard n long, on sand w/ little road use?
Thanks

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?

      Does everyone run the tire pressure as stated on tires or perhaps a couple # below to soften the ride a little?

      I have a 99 Kodiak 400 4X4 that I picked up for $300.  The previous owner had modified the foot shifter by welding a piece of rebar to it so he could hand shift while plowing.  As you can imagine, the allows for much more torque on the shifter than it was designed to have, and he broke the stopper off of the the shift mechanism.  No big deal, I ordered the part and put it back together, went through the carburetor and off we go, it runs pretty good.  
      The first thing I noticed is that when I put the shifter all the way down it goes into reverse, I'm supposed to twist a knob to get it to reverse but this seems to be disabled.  Also, once in reverse, it's a bugger to get back out.  I have to hold the shifter up, then quickly back down and up again to get it to come out.  All forward gears work fine, clutch is tight, no problems.
      The reverse cable and lever are in tact and seem to move freely.  
      My question is this:  What does one normally have to do to get this thing into reverse?  I assume put it in neutral, twist the knob, kick the shifter down.  Does the brake need to be applied?  I'm not sure what's going on here, I suspect it's been 'modified' as it goes into reverse without the proper precautions, just not sure if the mods were external on internal.
       
      thanks

      I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 quadrunner back into service. I have it up and running like new but need to replace the plastics as they are brittle and crumbling due to age and sun exposure. I would like to purchase new parts either OEM or aftermarket but have had little luck in finding them. I would even consider used or salvaged parts in serviceable condition. Any help in locating these parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      When it is  cold outside, say 35 deg F and colder, it is very difficult to shift to Reverse from neutral.  Engine temp doesn't have an effect.  I apply the brakes hard with the hand lever and the foot pedal.  In another post I read that high idle can affect shifting when the engine temp is warm. 
      I will try it with lower idle speed once I find the screw.  In the interim, can you tell me if there is some sort of adjustment for the shifter?
      Thank you
