Nice :-)

Running 15:40 now, might drop to 38 rear when it gets a little more power. Would like to be able to cruise at 50mph/80kmh at ok rpm, right now 40-45mph/60-70kmh is ok.

Update for anyone else thinking of doing the same. Got a set of Duro Scorcher, very happy with them. Alot more stable in turns, even with the stock with & ground clearance. Got the stock size on the stock rims, the 22x7-10 was a bit larger than the stock front tires so if you trying to match the stock size you might want to go for 21x7-10

you made a good choice, because i dont know whats up with selling street round tires for sport quads.
men...quads dont lean in corners, 2 whelers do.
sports quads that use street tires need flat tires like road cars.

if you look into the picture i posted above, thats just stupid...round tires in an atv/quad...damn!!!!

did you lower and widen it already???
when you do youre going to make corners at 50 easily... kkkkkkkk

btw we need pics....

No, just the tires yet. Would love to have a wider rear axle & some a-arms that both widens & lowers it but still uses the stock shocks.

I would also add an steering stabilizer with those roadtires.

In the front of the LTZ I bought Raptor 700 loweringkit something like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATV-CNC-3-5-...hYzyt1&vxp=mtr
(Fit w/o any modification)

And in the back I found loweringkit for LTZ400 hmm don't remember where atm maybe that was ebay also
something like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-5-Rear-Low...RYZHIQ&vxp=mtr
