Maybe i screwed up, but i'm hoping not. I bought a set of 24x10x11 mud lites for my stock wheels. not a problem, they look bad a$$ed, the problem is, i'm affraid i might not have the little steering that i did have. I haven't even rode my 700 yet with the new shoes, maybe i'm just paranoid. i'm going to try it out tommarow after work. i've allready gave my preloads about half thread on the front. Is there anything else i could try , if all goes bad????? Would really like to here from someone in a similar situation. THANKS.

itmay push a little more than it used to, shift your weight forward and try tightening the rear a little.

I have some 24-10-11 and the only that I've had is when I hit some jumps, sometimes they rub my heel guards, as for pushing, can't tell since I've 23" in the front.

You'll learn to handle the understeer. I hit the gas and let go into turns so the front end dives and you get more weight on the front tires. This will allow the front tires to hook up better. You'll be fine but start saving for some nice front tires. I bought the kenda klaw fronts. Tons of traction for a really low price. Razr front are good too, just cost more. Hope this helps.

Thanks guys, alot of usefull info., you guys are great, I rode my xx a little today and discovered I went the wrong way on my shock adjust, I cranked my front shocks tighter, BIG MISTAKE... so, i put them back to soft and cranked my rears about half way, noticable improvement, I am going to take your advice and get some 23's on the front, but, i think i'll try the mudlites, might as well have a matching set. I will get my fronts next week, and I'll let you all know how it goes.. This is my first IRS bike, so, bear with me, I'll eventually catch up with things, LOL!! Thanks again.......

I got home early today, so i got my 700 out for a while, i noticed it riding a little stiff( because i tightened my rears too much), I adjusted my rear shocks to 3/8 of an inch from top stop...... perfect, seems to steer a little better than it did with stock tires, and i still have a nice ride.. Thanks again for all the input, I would be completely lost without this site. still want 23 fronts, but my wife will be glad to know it can wait till spring. THANKS AGAIN...
