They're finally on, and on the new 8-spoke wheels. I'm running 25x10x12's all the way around because the 25x8x12's are too skinny for 7" wide wheels. I posted two photos in my Profile.

Ride quality is excellent and traction is too! Highly recommended.

Rob,

Like you I have a Rincon as well as a Grizzly.

I picked up the Grizzly on Tuesday.

Can you tell me if you notice a difference in the two in the transmision dept.

This when you are lopping along at low speed \ low RPM.

The Honda seems to hook up nice and you can put around at idle as smooth as can be.

The Grizzly seems to " slip " feels like the transmision skips, engages and disingages at low rpm.

I know the Rincon is a Torque Convertor somewhat like an Automobile.

The Grizzly is a belt, I am guessing somewhat like a snowmachine?

Could this be what I am feeling?

Thanks any input would be appreciated.

Yes that is very probably what you're feeling. For really low sutff like that, just as an experiment, but it in Low Range and see if it feels any better.

I've re-clutched my Grizzly using EPI's Heavy Duty Clutch Kit and it makes a world of difference in how the transmission behaves. I highly recommend it. Just don't buy it from Highlifter because they won't support it (have I mentioned lately how much Highlifter sucks? You can read all about it on my Rincon site) ;)

Anyway... I'm going to change the clutch weights out again in the Grizzly because the traction of the Bighorns is so good that it's dragging down the motor. And this is from a smaller, narrower, lighter weight tire than my previous 27" Blackwater XTs!!!

The terrain in Reno, NV is very similar to the terrain in Cedar City, UT, so which tire would you recommend for "spirited" train riding, the Bighorn Radial or the Holeshot ATR Radial?

Thanks.


[edit] the above should read "spirited trail riding", and not spirited train riding, ... sorry.

RobG,
With the 10's on all four did you add a wheel spacer to the rear so that they are inline with the fronts?
