Yes, I see now recent comments,

like these, below.
Even mine had, but here we have dirt roads,
very narrow,
and I removed.


Regarding power, you have introduced a beautiful word,
power to the wheel,
yes, this is always lower, at engine power,
in fact, power to the wheel,
it is power, less dispersions,
also rear tyre diameter
It affects.
If you see dyno, for example Renegade 1000 has 68 hp,
at the wheel,
despite the engine has 91

Tires and shocks are high on my priority list. I've read as many threads here as I can find on the shocks and while the Elka solution looks glorious, it is hard to go into a purchase on a machine like this knowing I would spend that much. That being said, I really am a big fan of adjustability on my shocks. Compression for sure and rebound is an added bonus. Most of what I have found basically say rebuild/revalve the stock rears or buy Fox Podiums, Elkas and one reference to HLS essentials. Obviously taking the rears to my shock guy is fine, but I know myself. I will end up taking them there 4 times to really dial everything in as my OCD kicks in. For that reason alone I would love adjustable units on the rear. Can I assume the solutions above are currently the only recommendations? If that is the case does someone know the overall length and travel of the rears?

I found this drawing from @Dannyboy but can't say I am positive I can answer my question above with it.

Want to make sure I have the tires figured out as well. My understanding is that 23's are better up front but will rub most nerf bars. Curious if anyone has nerf bars that don't rub 23's. If not, I assume the Razr 2 in 22x7x10 is right for the front.
https://www.denniskirk.com/maxxis/fr...prd/541653.sku

And for the rears it is either Kenda Kutters or Razr's in 22x10 11
https://www.denniskirk.com/maxxis/re...prd/653497.sku
...I don't find a Kenda Kutter in that size however D Kirk says the 9" ones are okay
https://www.denniskirk.com/kenda/rea...prd/653431.sku

Personally I would assume wider is better and that means the Razr's.

Then of course I see this:

Not digging the location or the price, but like the wheel setup cosmetically.



Those tires look wider than the wheel but are on bead locks. I assume that is another option although those wheels are not cheap!

I assume that those wheels are hiper brand? I think hiper and OMF are the only option for true bead locks for the 700xx. I chose OMF but I only bought new rear wheels. I went with 10 inch wheels for better tire options. I have been happy with the razr 2 rear tires so far but I have used those before on other atvs. I like the altracks as well that are in your photo but I think those are only 4 ply and the maxxis razr 2 is 6 ply. I have a set of altracks on an old honda ATC.

Idt so, looks like a cheaper metal not carbon. They almost look like the alba wheels, but idk. I'm wondering what size the rears are?

ya can get wider rims …...but ….there a problem. you need spacers to make them fit to be narrow . or not and reverse them and be very wide , great for riding dunes not so much on trails .all because the offset on the rims is wrong for the XX

I've looked at this one online about 30x. I keep talking myself out of it. It is a 5 hour drive away and doesn't look like it was treated the way I would treat my stuff. That being said, it comes with the mods I would put on it....minus the fact I would want to pull the wrap off.

It's crazy, because I'd never keep anything that dirty...and it is at a dealer. Scares me on how the previous owner cared about it.

Keep looking unless they really want to move it cheap. That FMF pipe is a POS. I had one. It sucked so much that I went back to stock. I do like the skid plates and nerf bars.
