What kind of terrain, what style of riding and any other way to describe the problem?

I've ridden on a flat tire and didn't even know it. lol

My buddy said my tire looked low and I needed to put air in it, I leaned over and looked, then looked at the other side and was like nah, it's fine....

Then later I saw it actually was flat.

i'm just normally on a dirt road. and when I'm riding it feels like one of the rear wheels is trying to push the atv sideways or like the atv is pulling to one side or trying to sway side to side. It's just a really weird feeling and hard to describe.

What pressures are you running all the way around?

I run what the fender suggests. Like 6 in the front 5 in the rear or something like that.

I've never felt what you're describing.

If all the tires are aired up properly and are in good condition I'd start looking for bent stuff. Maybe a tire is loose?

ok I will try running a little more toe in. but you know how it feels and pulls when a solid axle car breaks an axle my atv feels like that sometimes. and then it goes away so maybe I will look my 700xx over real good.

No, you don't want toe in. It's not like a car. You want a little toe out.

dirt roads are crowned and get washboard. mine feels the same way. on pavement or grass it feeels fine. just go faster, if something falls off then you know what needs to be fixed

Check your control arm bashing as well mine has been feeling like that some times and I noticed one of the upper bashing was worn out don't know if that is the cause but its earth looking at anyway

I found that my left rear tire only had like 6 psi of air in it so I aired it up ti 10 pis like the other on and it seems to be fine again. I will look at my control arm bushings though.
thanks for the help.

6 psi is all you are supposed to run in rear. If you run 10 psi it will ride really rough so maybe that was your problem. Try running 6 psi in both rear tires

so i have been riding my 700xx around for a little bit now and the 23x8-10's that i have on the back of my 700 don;t look like they will ever go as wide as the 22x8-10's that I have on the front. so this is where i need some advice from you guys on here should i leave the 22x8-10's on the front and then get two more 23" tires for the rear that would be 10" wide or should i just run 22" tires all the way around? or stay with the 23" tires that I have on the back now for a little while longer? your help means a lot to me thanks.

will the 23" tires that i have on the back of it now always make it feel like the suspension is way softer and tipsy? or will it go away after the tires have been ran on for a while?

Having bigger tires will make the ride softer but will be more tipsy. I would have to say that the longer you ride with the 23s the more you will get used to riding it, with out it feeling like its going to tip!! Its like me on my TRX when i let my friend use it he feels like he is going to roll it, and when i use his raptor i feel like im going to roll it. Its all about getting to know your machine, the loger you ride the more comfortable you become!!
