Ok so i am asking you guys opinion on whether or not i should just run the razr tires in the stock size or should i run a 22 in the front? I am planning on keeping the stock wheels and would just like to upgrade the rubber to something a little better. I am just a weekend warrior and do not plan on racing or anything like that. I live in the appalachian mountains and ride alot of steep mountain trails. So im worried the taller front tire would make me prone to tipping or lofting the front tire going up steep climbs. Let me know what you guys think! Your opinions are greatly appreciated.

PS: I tried searching but i think it's broke again! :confused:

Thanks! I think the 23's would be over kill for me! Are the razr 2's really that much better controlling the push than the dunlops?

You will still get some push but it does help quit a bit well worth the $$$ to me to always use the razrs 1s or 2s i have the 2s witch i think are a little better then the 1s

im pretty sure you still cant get the 2s for the rear yet unless you go to a 10 inch rear rim
its all your preference but i think you would be much happier with the 22s on the front JMO

I run 22's rzr2s in the front, and I like them quite a bit. Still some push, but not nearly as bad.

Any problems with running 23's with nerf bars? How about 22's? I saw on some other posts there were concerns, but I couldn't find any answers.

i went with regular maxxis 23" fronts they look very similar to stock and what a difference it made the bike a different machine and i think the 13t helped alot as well it slides now not quite as well as a sra but a 200% diff. from stock!

Anybody know how much heavier the 6-ply razr's are than stock?
I have no idea, I didn't weigh the 2 seperately. However, the fronts I didn't notice much difference, a pound or two. However, the rears are a little more.

As far as the 23's rubbing, there were a few posts somewhere on here where they rub the nerfs, but it depends on the nerfs you got and everything. Just have to do some research, on whether they will work if you have nerfs or not.

I have the 22's, and I like them. 6 ply with whatever tire out there is worth the extra weight IMO.

This is kinda off the subject but I was just at the dealer and was talking to another guy who had his xx in the shop. He had the razr 2's on the front and they were bald! Looked like slicks! That poor machine looked like it had been abused to say the least. I asked him why it was in the shop and he said his engine was knocking? I was thinking man if it wasn't a Honda it would probably be dead already!

Thanks for all the replies! I just ordered some 22" razr 2's for the front. Looking forward to seeing how much better they perform over the stockers. Plus I wanted the added security of having the 6 ply tire.

I've got 23" Razrs in front and haven't even thought about the push since mounting them. The tires plus tightening my front preload has pretty much solved the issue for me and I'm still running with the OEM Dunlops in the back.

I got razr rear and razr2 23" up front with douglas wheels with a 3+2 offset making it 1.5" wider in the front and it makes a HUGE difference. I totally had to adjust the way I exited and entered turns because I was used to pushing around the turn and having the inside front tire come up exiting the turn. It still does it a little but its a big improvement.
