My wife rides a Kodiak and it is a great quad. Put on a set of radials and you will be amazed at the difference in the ride and the traction. Maxxis Bighorns are what we have on 2 of our quads and they are mighty fine!

Grizzonator,
I been debating the Bighorns on my griz, you think they make a big improvement? Big thing, I need something for snow, and some mud, I do not go mud bogging mind you, but I do ride snow in the winter, have you had experience in the snow with these tires? thanks for any info.

Hi Irv, The hand guards are called "Powermadd" they have a web site powermadd.com My brother has them on his grizzly and they look sharp. There sold in 3 pieces and go for about 120.00 canadian The place I got it from is Royal Distributing they have a web site you can order online. Hope this help's you.

Bighorns in the snow are excellent for the question posted earlier. I have yet to chain up with them when I am using the snowplow unlike the chains I had to use with the stock tires.

These are the hand guards I bought for my Grizzly. I mainly got them for wind protection in the winter. They are thick tough plastic but have no metal support. They are made by Moose. I like them fine and they do the job. And they only cost $39. I read some things about people who dont like hand guards as they can trap your hand in a fall, but I figure a hard enough fall and these will break. Since I have them for wind and brush they are fine, I wouldn't expect to hit a tree trunk and be ok, but then again, if I am that close the the tree my hand is the last thing I have to worry about. I've run thru brush and branches with no problems.
