Setup for trail riding?

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....

Go for 13t front sprocket , New tyres all round and if it is rocky some skid plates. I feel you don't need a swaybar at this stage.

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.

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?
