I want to get some new wheels for my 08 Arctic Cat 400.

I'm leaning toward the 14" ITP SS212's wrapped in either 27" Interco SwampLites or 26" Maxxis Zillas.

My question is, are 14" wheels with either 26" or 27" tires too heavy for a 400cc?

Will I have decreased throttle response, speed, etc with 14's?

Would I be better off going with the 12" SS212's?

The stockers are 12" with 25" tires.

Thanks for any info...

the 14 inch is alot of wheel for a 400.. i'm sure its possible but your going to loose alot of power..i wouldn't go more then an inch or two over stock on the tires.. the wheels i would stay with the stock size and inch bigger at the most..

i dont think you should go with the 14" rims to much weight... u could go with ITPs mudlite tires i got those on my cat which is also a 400 and didnt loose any power.... did you do any mods to ur engine or transmission?

Nope, no engine or tranny mods yet.

This is my first ATV, and wheels and tires seemed like a good place to start.

Thanks...

yea it defiantly is a good place to start..... i would go with 12 inch rims on 27 inch tires would probably be the best combo

I decided on the 14" SS212 wheels with 26" Zillas.

This combo is only 15 pounds heavier the 12" wheel with 26" Zillas, lighter than 26" Swamp Lites on 12" wheels, and only 5 pounds heavier than 26" Mud Lites on 12" wheels.

      Anyone know what the fuse terminal marked UNSWITCH  does  .  Even with the key off it is causing a drain on my battery and I'm trying to figure out  what that terminal goes to.  It's a 10 amp fuse. If I pull it the "short" goes away.  Thanks in advance.

      I have had a 2002 Suzuki King Quad 500 for almost a year. This is a question I’ve posted before, but likely missed the answer due to being new to the site. Here’s the issue. When in 4 wheel drive, especially in low range, especially when pulling a load downhill, I hear a lot of clanking in the front end. As if the front drive shaft was binding then unbinding. A friend who had a 1987 Dodge 4x4, told me all the noise his front end made when in 4 wheel drive was entirely normal. So, is this something I should worry about? I have all the bodywork and tank off right now doing a valve adjustment and carb rebuild. If I gotta do something, I’d like to do it now. Lastly, I’d love to find a carb tuning guide for this era of Mikuni. Haven’t tracked one down yet. Any thoughts of where to find one? Great forum. Have really enjoyed it so far.

      I purchased a quad with engine problems. The previous owner had pulled the motor and pulled the valve cover but decided to stop. I have done Arctic Cat top ends before but have never worked on the bottom end so any advise would be appreciated. What I have found so far is the connecting rod bearing is completely gone and some scoring on the jug walls. What i'm wondering is if anybody here has worked on these and if so did you replace all the bearings or just the ones that were for sure bad? Also is the 2006 Suzuki King Quad 700 motor exactly the same? It seems Suzuki parts are a lot cheaper to buy.
