Hey everyone,

I have a bone stock 700XX that i want to prepare for trail riding. We dont have any sand where Im at and I will mainly be riding with utility fourwheelers 90% of the time. I have already bought a set of Pro Armor Fat Peg nerfs. What else do you guys suggest? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Gotta get a 13t sprocket for the front, or a 12t depending on how technical you're ridding gets, then some razrs all the way around, then kyless sway bar, imo...

Search for all 3 on the site, there is plenty to read....

yeah ive seen where alot of guys were talking about changing their sprokets to be more trail friendly. Maxxis does make some good tires too, but i was wondering what anyone thought about the ITP mudlites for sport atv's. any thoughts?

I bought a pair of ITP mudlites because they were all I could find to fit the rear. I rode them about a half mile at a medium speed on a rocky trial and got a huge gash between the lugs. The hole took two large plugs and it still leaks down fairly quickly. I would not purchase them again.

What company would you guys buy your skids from? I really dont know the difference from any of the different companies.

Honda racing skids are pretty nice. I've heard the mudlites have a thin sidewall wich makes them prone to punctures. Take a look at the kenda kutter xc. They're cheaper than the razr's and get great reviews on here.

I will def. look into the kendas. Do you have any other suggestions that would make the bike a better trail machine?

I have the PRM skid plate and it fits really well. .190 thickness and its one piece. I believe the Honda Racing skid plate is two separate pieces.

Thanks, I was looking at the pro armor skids but its a two piece, and all of the companies that I have checked out seem to be around the same price, I guess its just gona come down to personal preference

The good thing about the honda stuff is they offer a-arm skids as well. pro armor doesn't. You could get the pro armor frame skid and the honda a-arm skids?
