Not really, lol. I wanted a little more selection of rims and tires for my 700XX because as some of you might know, have a rear bolt patter of 4/144 just like the most sport quads front bolt patterns, instead of a 4/110. I wanted to be able to use my left over rims and tires from my previous sport quads, and occationally put my Rincons 12" rims on and do some high speed riding. So I bought some bolt pattern adapters/wheel spacers and had a little fun after work. I dug out my Rincon's winter tires, 26" Mudlite XL's, and put all four on my 700 and took it for a ride. Mudlite XL=Not very light on a 2 wheel drive quad, even with a big bore motor. Probably didn't help that I still had the stock 14t sprocket on either, but I still managed to wheelie pretty easy in 3rd gear. Handling wasn't too bad, and at about 50" in the front and 51" in the rear, it didn't want to roll over with the tall tires because the spacer are 1.5" each. Didn't go for a long ride, just down over the hill and back so I didn't get muddy, lol. Tomorrow after work I plan on putting my stock Rincon tires on and and seeing how fast it will go, I'm not sure if it will even rev out in 5th gear, my Z400 couldn't, but it's worth a try. Its funny, even though my stock 25" Rincon tires are almost bald, they are still slightly taller than my nearly new 26" Mudlites with both at 5 lbs, gotta love radials.

Ready for Mud Nationals, with 16" of ground clearance at the start of my skid plate, and slopes down to 13" and change at the center, then about 14" in the back.

with that set up you can go through just about anything a 4 wheel drive will go, my neighbor has a 2 wheel drive rancher with 26 inch mud lites and he goes through everything the 4x4s go through and more.:atv:

I threw on my much lighter and way less aggressive stock Rincon rims and tires. Hopefully Sunday I will get out and test them on the open back roads and see if I can top her out. I did this with my Z400 last year, but it was awkward riding it because I had 21" in the front and 25" in the rear, so that didn't even out. That, and the Z didn't have the motor to pull until the rev limiter, we'll see if the XX does.

lets go muddin

I'll go muddin with ya, sounds like fun. Without any tire under the flares it is one messy ride. Found a little creek today that had what looked like a dried up section between a couple ponds of water today. Talk about a stinking mess once the tires started to break through. Pretty sure I pissed off the guy across the road too as he was out at the end of his driveway looking to see what was going on. I like the Honda with this set up but its not the best for my riding. I really need just sport tires. trying to find something better than ambush tires, they are only four ply and kind of worried about punching holes in them. We need to get you some wheels now.

Tire Wheel Land vehicle Vehicle Automotive tire

Tire Wheel Vehicle Automotive tire Motor vehicle here ya go mquick. its a pretty easy install. take the tail light off and the rubber that it connects to, then just unbolt your grab bar and install this with the two connectors that come with it. have to find a waterproof bag or container though. that little cooler doesnt work well in water.
