Itp MUD LITE XTR vs maxxis BIG HORN 2

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I am looking on input on the Itp MUD LITE XTR and the Maxxis BIG HORN 2

They are both radials.

I am looking for them for my 2008 YAMAHA BIG BEAR 400

For hunting and light trail riding in Ontario 

Thanks in advance

Both good tires. It really depends on your riding style, what you will be going through, and what you expect out of the feel of the tire.

Well that I don’t know as I am new to Atv ownership. I bought the quad for hunting which is a bit of everything depending on the weather?

Well. Will you be going thru swamps or wetlands. Mountains and rocks. All of it, most of it? If you ride on dry lands with trees. Then a mud tire will be a bumpy ride depending on the tire. Compacted treads will offer a smooth ride but can be crappy in mud.

I would definitely go with and all terrain tire. I use them on my hunting quad because i go through so many different types of ground including flat ground. As @06kfx440 said a mud tire on smooth ground makes for a bumpy ride.   
Ebay has a ton of all terrain tires.

Maxxis Bighorns are an all around good tire i have them on a 2007 can am outlander 650 maxx xt and they work great in most of the terrains we use the quad in mud, loose dirt, loose gravel, packed trails, in snowbanks.

I have loved the big horns I got, great for plowing snow and hunting in Ontario. I would buy them again. Depends what you want to do with the quad?

SunF makes a great knockoff of the big horns at a fraction of the price.  That tread pattern is one of the best all around performing tires out there.

      picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters.  these are great light weight little quads.
       
      have a strange one for you.  the quad will NOT start in neutral.  it will start in first. 
      if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either.  that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
       
      id like to carry out whatever repair is needed.  i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
       
      any help appreciated!  thank you.
      i need to add something.  it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.  
      so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral.  the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.

      I have a yamaha big bear 400, tested all fuses and relays. When I turn on key I get nothing, no neutral light or headlights. Could it be the key switch bad?

      Hello guys! New to the forum, and fairly new to ATVs. I've driven them, but never owned one. Now I do own one. Just picked it up today. It's a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350. It's been through some stuff. The guy I got it from told me the previous owner removed the front diff because he didn't want to replace the half shaft. So it's 2wd, even though it's supposed to be 4x4. Lovely. I can deal with that for now.
       
      More importantly, I need to get it running. The carb needs to be rebuilt. The guy I got it from said he sprayed it all out and it still didn't work. I'm concerned he might have damaged it or not put all the parts back. I was looking at a replacement carb, and the OEM parts is $600. I'd rather not spend $600 if there are any other options. I have seen carbs on Amazon and eBay that are in the $40 - $100 range that say they fit. Anyone have experience with these? I'm going to get a rebuild kit for the current carb just to make sure that won't fix it.
       
      Thats the first thing with it. Secondly, it was completely rewired. I need to find a original wiring diagram so I can put it back how it was, with a key and all. Currently it's wired with just a rocker switch. Any sources for a service manual that would include wiring diagrams?
       
      Thirdly, is the Big Bear 350 a good atv? I picked it up for $700. It does start and run when you spray starting fluid into the air intake, so I am not concerned about the engine being bad. I plan to use it for the farm, running around and carrying things with it like minerals and feed and such. Not really for mudding and things like that. How good is the 99 350?
       
      I am certain I will have more questions as I examine it more, but that's all for now. Thanks in advance for the assistance!

      Just got a '98 Yamaha big bear 4x4 in working condition (so far). Looking forward for some good information on this site about how to keep it alive.
