2013 Grizzly 550 versus 2013 foreman 500

Hey guys!!
I'm new to this site and I'm looking for a new atv I really like the 2013 grizzly 550 and the foreman 500 but I don't know which on suits me best. I ride trails, mud, I pull a little bit on the farm here and there but not every day. I Like the sra for sliding around turns but the comfort of the IRS can y'all help me out
Any help would greatly be apreciated so let me hear y'alls opinions

It's just as easy to fishtail and do donuts and stuff with a independent rear suspention as with a sra. All you have to do is lean inward to prevent body roll outward and that way you don't roll it over.

Yes! I would recommend a JBS custom clutch kit for tires that heavy and large.

You won't need clutch mods done but if you don't it's going to feel under powered. The honda will feel just as weak with those tires.

550 grizzlys the better machine, and cheaper to get more power out of. for under 9.00 you could do the 1.5mm shim mod and turn 28 in tires no problem.

What does jbi clutch kits run for and where can I get one at? Once I take the clutch cover off would I have to do anything to seal it?

I think you'd be able to get away with just a 1.5 mm shim..

The only advantage the Foreman has is fuel economy.
