Tires and backpack

Recommended Posts

OK so im looking to get 22" GBC gator tires for the rear of my quad. What would be a complimentary front tire? I have a 400EX so big front tires are a nono.

Also Ive see alot of sport atv riders wearing backpacks of some sort in the trails? are the comfortable? I will forgo the aluminum rack if the backpack is comfy.

Tires will be fine. I would consider swamplites, they are a great all around tire. Cant help you with the backpack.

They dont make swamplites in 22x7x10. I might just go with a knobby type like from the factory.

I wear a backpack... I love it, way better than trying to fit tools, camera, wallet, cell, water, condo... Nevermind, or whatever you bring, in other places. I just make sure it is tight, so it doesn't flop around in the whoops.

Didnt see that size TY.

You guys think that tire profile is too aggressive for the front wheels on a 2wd sport quad?

I was talking about for the rear of your quad. Every body runs them here. Not real impressed with the Gators, except in pure mud. Swamplites dig like there is no tomorrow. ITP also makes a Mud Lite for all four corners of your quad.

Would I want to wear mudlites on all four corners? I ride mostly on the coal hills in NE PA. Coal dust mixed with water gets real slippery, like grease almost. On the other hand alot of the trails are rocks and hard packed dirt.

I didnt want to run soft tires on all four corners. or do I? I really have no idea what to run on the fronts. I currently have stockers in front which suck big time and maxxis razrs on the rear. Aside from the coal mud they are a pretty good tire as I keep up with the 4x4s. I do like to ride fast and want handling too.

So I will not look at gators anymore. Definetly mudlites in the rear. as for the front? mudlites too?

Thanks Buck Billy for the enlightenment!

I ride on my gsxr and it hold close to me but I ride with full leathers to.

Oh I meant with trails and jumping and what not. I would assume as long as its tight against you like you said and not too heavy it should be fine....right?

Mud Lite SPs not just plain MudLites. The SP version are intended for a sport quad.

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.

      If you're getting that pesky leaky seal on the pinion of your front differential and the pinion has allot of play, polaris won't sell the bushing needed to repair it properly without having to shell out big bucks for the complete ring and pinion kit. 
      I have a kit with an upgraded bushing, Japanese made bearing and USmade seal

      My father-in-law gave my boy a 1999 350 Big Bear. It's been sitting in a barn for a bunch of years. It runs great! My boy has been riding a couple weeks now and it has developed a squeal coming from the front end when you get off the gas at speed. No noise during acceleration. At first I thought brakes. I took it for a ride and I don't think it is the brakes. I feel it is the front prop shaft U-joints, front differential or one/both axles. I pulled the fill plug on the differential and I can't find anywhere how much gear oil should be in there. My gut says up to the fill opening. It doesn't have a manual. It's wet in there, just don't see any gear oil.

      #1 Should I fill the differential with gear oil up to the fill opening?

      #2 How do I check or know if the u-joints are bad? That looks like a "Big Bear" of a job if they don't need to be replaced.

      #3 What else could it be? I don't think it is the front bearings. I jacked the front wheels off ground and no play in the right wheel. Very little play in the left wheel, looks like the lower control bushing is where that play is coming from. The rubber CV boots look original but all still intact. Wheels spin easily without any noise.

      Thanks for any help!

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      Has anyone tried the GPS XII Run Flat tires. We just got a set for hunting season and these are the best thing I have ever seen. If your looking for a tire that you don't have to worry about flats this is the tire. We have purchased many different brands for our machines over the years and nothing like these ever. A little on the pricy side but I have to say well worth every penny.

      I own a stock 2002 Beartracker with 10" rims. I found a set of new take-offs wheels and tires from a Grizzly that are 12". Was told they would fit. Got them home and the right rear tire hits the muffler. all others fit fine. Any ideas or options. Can the ATV be lifted a few inch to make the new wheels work?
