I have an '07 BF 650 i with ITP Terracross'

I run 3 PSI in the front and around 4-4.5 PSI in the back.....

I was running 6 front and back and the ride was pretty stiff.

Now, I love it....

I ride a lot of rutted trails with a decent amount of rocky trails....

YMMV.....

p.s. Toss the stock Dunnies!!!!!! They BLOW in the mud...and I'm not talking mud bogs either!

I agree....depends on the Ply Rating of the Tire.....How Heavy you are ETC. ETC....Mainly.....what Feels Comfortable to you....

Quick little Quote I found in 20 Seconds on Google

******************************************************************************

I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have kicked someone’s tire, only to find it hard as a rock or as soft as mashed taters. ATV tire manufacturers recommend tire pressures as low as 2.7 psi to as high as 10 psi. What is the correct pressure for your ATV tires?

First, look for the orange and white sticker (it’s usually on the left rear fender) on your ATV. Front and rear psi may be different, so don’t assume all tire pressures are the same. When all else fails, ask your wife what the owners manual says (most guys don’t read owners manuals).

If you’re going to be running the Grand National Cross Country series like I do, or if you're riding a lot of rocky terrain, you might want to increase the tire pressure above what is recommended, I run as high as 10 psi at some races because of the rocks.

Be sure to keep your tire pressure the same, left to right (both front tires should be the same and both rear tires the same). If one side is off by as little as ½-pound psi then the ATV will pull to the low side.

Know your tires. If you have aftermarket tires, follow the manufacturer's recommendations, but be careful not to mistake the sidewall higher pressure (as high as 25 psi) that is needed to bead the tire on the rim for the correct pressure for normal riding, which is much lower.

This is interesting and confusing. My neighbor said around 7 PSI. Now the side of the tire says do not inflate above 36 PSI and the manual said keep at low 30s.
Why would there be such a discrepancy?

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

      Hi all,
       
      Picked up my first Brute Force yesterday. What should have been an awesome afternoon of riding turn a bit into a deception. As I was unable to really take it out for a test drive at the shop, I decided to buy it and agreed that I would take the test drive at home. 
      When giving full throttle I noticed that the Brute was choking and lost all of its powers. Faulty fuel pump most likely. 
      Called the shop and the are coming to pick it up and repair it and bring it back. Good service. Nevertheless feels a bit sour in the mouth as I was told it was a 100% good. 
      Need to have some patience I now before I can really start riding. 
      Cheers,
      Erik

      I have a quad (Can-Am) that takes 25 inch tires, just got a set of rims with tires that are 26's, not a whole bunch taller, don't see any problems using them? My main question, just in case I want to swap the tires in the rims, is on the rear tires.
      My original tires are 25/11/12 the replacement rims, the tires are 26/10/12. If the rims have the 26/10's now, will it work with the 25/11 tires? They appear to be the same width, are they? How can I tell what will work on the rim.
      Inside the rim, it is stamped 12/7.5 ET:+51

      I bought some stock wheels and tire that came off a Honda Foreman i believe. My problem is the rear rubbs my exhaust.
      Should I just put in a spacer and move the whole thing out an inch or two? Or should I buy 2 new wheels that have the correct backing?
      I have a 96 Fourtrax 300. the wheels that were on it are 9X9.0AT the new ones are 11X7.5AT.
