Lack of knowledge, Need help please.

Hello guys,

I'm in need of tire help.

Background - Received a 2008 TRX700 Black for a debt of $1800 three days ago. Two problems with the bike that I need to get rectified prior to me selling it.

A- Rear tires are basically slicks.
B- Rear right (if you are sitting on the bike) upper a-arm is a bit tweaked giving the rim/tire an unsatisfactory camber.

My main question follows. What size rear tires can I mount on the stock rims OTHER than the stock size tires? I searched the forum but have not used a forum such as this before so I may be doing it improperly, or not effectively enough.

Basically, I want to put some cheaper tires on the bike to get it sold to recoup my money. However nearest dealer says they are not tires that are currently stocked as far as he knows with his dealership, or any other in our area. Also, the nearest dealer is 2.5hrs away and WILL NOT take a credit card over the phone.

If you do not want to help because I could have found it in a search, I understand.

However, if you would not mind telling me sizes that will fit this rim and brands it would be GREATLY appreciated. I would love to keep it in the 150 ball park but do realize that may not be possible.

PRICES would also be great.

Thanks for the help, and again sorry that I could not locate it myself if it has been covered numerous times.

Best

A popular replacement tire is the Maxxis Razr 22x10x11 size (which will fit the stock rim) and can be purchased through Rocky Mountain ATV for $100 each Link: http://www.rockymountainatv.com/prod...#vehicleSelect

The stock Dunlop tires are only $88 there as well.
Most likely a stock replacement A-arm will be your best bet.
Good Luck

Nash04 and vfm2010 both have good answers and I don't disagree with them in any way. However, since you are planning on selling the quad, I'd go with the tire that best fits the type of riding available in your area for your potential buyers. The last thing you want a potential buyer to think they have to do is replace tires after they buy. If you select correctly, they will see that the quad already has THE right tire for the riding in their area.

Welcome to the forum!

In spite of the issues, you should be able to unload it pretty quickly for more than the debt owed you. Do you have a title for it? Where are you located? (I may be interested if you're close enough)

I second the Maxxis tires.

As far as the rear a-arm you have two choices:

1. The dealer
2. (My guess) Wayne Matlock, he's a member here and may have some extra parts laying around.

I do have all of the paperwork for the bike. I will snap some pictures in a bit and put them up. However, this think is no spring chicken. You can tell he rode it, but what is to be expected right?

The rims were painted black so I quickly stripped them back to factory machined finish. Other than that it is in very good shape. Front tires are Maxxis Razrs so I believe I will take you all on that advice. Might as well have a matching set.

Also, is it beneficial for a sale to keep the aftermarket parts like taper pro bars and g-grips in place? Or will it be easier to just sale them separate?

Oh, the bike is in Mobile, AL.


Thanks for the info guys,

Best

OK, keep me in mind for whatever option you choose, and as Simplyorange requested, please post some pictures if you don't mind. If you need assistance with that I can help out.
