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

I run what the tire states, 5 psi, but I also have radial tires on my quad (Maxxis Bighorn)

I run a half pound less of what the rating is just for comfort. Takes a little bit of the rough ride out.  

I also use nitrogen in instead of air.  Nitrogen has no pressure change through the seasons cold or hot so my tire psi always stays the same.

nice @Frank Angerano!  I just follow whats on the tire no questions asked lol

they can hold a lot of air though- not recommended, I picked up my sportsman from my friend and one day decided to check the pressure- supposed to be around 10 psi (these are kenda executioners) and he had pumped them the 40 psi in front and 50 rear- needles to say I immediately let the pressure out down to spec...

It depends on the combined overall weight (Pilot + machine) and the terrain you plan to ride into if you are planning on a tarmac ride I'd rather use close to 14-15 psi

but if you intend to ride on mud,sand or snow I'd go to the 5 psi side of the spectrum .Low pressures increase grip, High pressures increase tire duration. Nice rides!!

What tire gauge are you guys using? My stick pressure gauges that I tend to use for truck tires is not very accurate at the pressures needed for atv tires (5-8psi) I am just curious what others are using and have had good luck with.


Thanks

I typically use a regular tire gauge like this:

      Passing thought here and thought I'd pitch it to the group for debate.  I'm working through a Kodiak which is basically a Big Bear in a heavier bike and the same as about anything Japanese made for 30 years as far as clutch function and design goes.  This Kodiak is odd though in that the centrifugal clutch slipped a bit with good clutch material remaining and the main clutch pack seems to slip a bit as well at high RPM but also still has good clutch material left.  Much like the Kawa race bikes from what I've read.  Do you think it's an option to add a thin washer to the pressure bolts to put a bit more pressure on the main clutch and force it to use a bit more of the clutch material before having to replace?  There's seriously like 50% of fiber left on the main clutch pack and it seems silly to replace it all before it's truly worn down.

      I have a 2013 KQ I bought it new but rolled it a few years ago. I have replaced the left lower A-arm and left tie rod, the steering is still a little sketchy as I just eye balled the alignment. But the major issue is the left front tire cambers out at the top and has wore the tire bald. Tires have about 2000 miles on them but other 3 are half tread and left front is a slick.. I can not see anything else bent and don't know what to do..

      Looking to get some tires for my old quad, but the tires are getting rarer.  Paying near 100 for tires seems a lot when that is what I just paid for tires for my car and i only ride four or five times a year 
       
      Anyone have any leads on good used or closeouts in 23x10/12 and 23x8/12?
       
      Additionally, what other sizes can I run that might be easier to find and not muck with the 4x4?
       
      Thanks,

      OK ya'll.I need your help again.My ATV, 2004 Yam Kodiak 400 4x4,needs a new REAR rim or wheel what have you,whatever term you prefer. I've posted pics here as you can see.The tire is a 25x10.00x12 . As you can see its a deep REAR rim.I cannot seem to find a deep REAR rim. (Capitalization for emphasis) . The only sizes I can find listed are for both the front and rear wheels which is  12x7  4/110.  This doesn't help me much. So,who can help me out? Im getting desperate now!LOL!

      My village has now made golf carts and atv's legal on the street and now that the wife and i can go cruise around i'm considering putting on street tires to save my knobbies. Thinking on the route of saving costs and using car rims i'm sure i will have to get adapters but has anyone had experiences doing this? Down falls? We dont mud or anything and they would be used for summer only.

      Hello first time posting here. I have just brought a KVF 300 and the tyres need replacing. i was wondering about the sizes do you have to use the same as what are on it or can you change them a bit. the sixes are 25 x 8 - 12 front  and 25 x 11 - 10
      i am having trouble finding the 25 x 11 - 10  could i go to 25 x 10 or 25 x 12 having trouble to get the 11 for a good price
      or can i even get bigger back rims
      what are the options there
       
      Thanks Quadcrazy
