Busy? Not if you look at my calendar, lol. But yes very occupied these days. I guess 3 little girls age 4 and under will do that to a guy. I still try to check in on the forum when I can. And getting help with Grizzly tinkering has been tougher to come by lately. So I've been doing more with crossbow tinkering the last 8 months or so since I can do most of that independently.Ty...must be busy...haven't seen you around.
I still have those 450 parts for you. I've been having a hard time getting away from the campground during the season. We have a camper/friend that lives in Elk Mound. I am thinking of having him bring them back sometime. I'll let you know.
I'm going to put my current front 4000 mile tires in the back and slightly used rears to the front.Are you keeping them for a spare set or getting them mounted up and going to keep them in rotation with the other 4 you have??
Fat tires float, narrow tires bite. Fat tires great for sand.I recently reinstalled my 11" wide Growlers on my bike after almost 600 miles of running 26x9 Growler front and rear threw the fall and winter months. The fronts remained the same 26x9 Growlers as always which have 3000 hard miles.
It's spring , and the trails have deep snow, slush, ice, mud, grass, rocks, water crossings, and we have lots of moderate to steep hills to climb. Overall a fun filled slimy time of year for quading!!!
Did a short 5 mile run in all the terrains described above....
I couldn't believe, how my bike struggle threw everything with my 11" wides . The bike was all over the place, handled terrible, difficult to steer and loss noticeable power with the larger rears. Had to be in 4wd the half the time to keep control and forward momentum.
After that ride I immediately switched back to my skinnies as soon as I got home and did the exact same trails for comparison. I was BLOWN AWAY by how superior the 9" tires performed. The bike gained noticeable power, steered and tracked much better, and did everything in 2wd minus two steep hills witch proved a bit much. Basically only needed 4 wd for about 200 feet with the skinnies versus almost 2 miles of 4wd use with the fatties.. WTF '!!!????
Went for 20 mile ride yesterday with my buddy who has 27" swamplites 9" fronts, 11" rears on his 700 Grizzly. We swapped bikes back and fourth multiple times. It was the same story. His bike struggles, was hard to control, and required 4wd frequently. He couldn't believe how much easier my bike steered, handled and drove threw everything in 2wd !!!
Long story short, I'm selling my 11" Growlers and will never run fat tires again.....
Yes I've observed that. It would make for a great set up to be able to rotate tires left to right, and utilize a fresh lug edge like dirtbike guys do.
