Since I'm going back to my stock rims, I'd like to add some wheel spacers because I truly felt more confident with the wider track that the ITP rims gave me. I'm just wondering if I just run 1/2 inch or 1 inch spacers. What size are you running beast?
**** online converters... thanks Interceptor. I wish we used metric to begin with.
CG, there's nothing wrong with the tires and rims, it's just that I found I really don't need that aggressive of a tire. Plus I plow with my Grizzly in the winter and I loss a good amount of low end with 26" tires. I could have added a clutch kit, piped and rejetted, but I really like the reliability of a stock machine. Not to mention the added weight has to put a lot of wear and tear on the bike. I'm taking a trip to WV in November to ride the Hattfield McCoy trail system and there's a some road riding involved. Those MST's were **** over 25mph on the pavement. The bars would shake and pitch. On the trail they were great, you just had to use low range some more. That being said, I decided I want to go back to a set of 25" tires that also ride good on the road and do well in the snow. What I really liked was the stability I had from the added width on the tires and rims. Thats why I'm looking into spacers.
Since I'm going to be shipping my tires and rims, I had them weighed at Fedex 40.5 for the rear with rims and 35lbs for the front. Thats alot more than the stockers.
ok,, thanks,, i was wondering about the extra weight,,, im kinda like you,, think I will keep the stock size,,,,in fact im gonna keep the stock tires for a while,,,, almost out of new doodad money if you know what I mean,,,, ,,, cg
Doolin...I have been using the Highlifter 1" wheel spacers with stock wheels and find them to be an excellent product. They are made from solid aluminum and bolt onto your existing wheel studs, then the spacer has another set of studs installed in them that you mount the wheel onto. Highlifter also sells 1 1/2" but that is to wide IMO.
For an all use tire the Bighorns are an excellent tire. We put a set on my brothers Eiger last year and it will go anywhere Grizzly will go except for the nasty mud that you can always go around anyway. I am going to put a set of 26" on my Grizzly.
If you wanted to keep 26" tires the Dalton clutch kit is excellent and not to expensive. It will make the Grizzly run like it has stock 25" tires on.
i too run the 1.5 spacers from highlifter,,,front ,and back,and they turned the bike into a whole differant machine,,,,you will most likely want to get the overfender kit with the spacers,but i'm not sure if your going back to 25's
