2008 Yamaha Grizzly with Maxxis Bighorns

17 posts in this topic

Daytime pics added, thought I would start a new thread. Filled tires to 6 psi last night, went for a little ride and they seemed awfully squirrely ... checked pressure on the trail and they were above 7 psi! Tires do warm up, released some air down to 5.5 psi, very nice!

Are those the Bighorn 2.0, or the original Bighorns? They look like the originals.

They are the originals ... thought about the 2.0 for weight, but went with the tried and true.

Don't be afraid to air them down a little more. I found on my machine with 25" bighorns, riding in the snow, about 4 psi in the front and 3.5 in the rear is perfect. Lots of traction and good floatation make them a great snow tire.

We also have a set of 26" Big Horns on 12" Black SS108's. We are running them at about 2.5-3.5 PSI and they are great in the winter time. You will love that setup.

Machine look great. I see you are over near Hayward, WI. We will be having a group ride over in the Winter/Ojibwa area this weekend Thursday thru Sunday if you want to join up. There should be 60+ of us. Guaranteed good times.

Interesting ... I'll drop the PSI to 3.5 and see how that runs. SomethingFishy, tried to PM you unsuccessfully. Thanks for the offer, I believe I'll be installing a set of Tatou 4S this weekend if they arrive in time! Probably working through Sat AM as well, but have fun over there, I've got a buddy that has a cabin by the Bumble Bee Resort.

Unfortunately no PM's available on this site.

Let us know how you like the Tatoo 4s, I test drove an 09 850xp with them on it. Tracks are a lot of fun, also useful. I don't think I could ever not have them again, you will love them with the power steering.

Check out AtvNation for some additional ATV'ing info. That is where I have met most of the people we will be riding with this weekend. My screen-name is the same on both sites.

Haven't had to use it on the ice yet, can still get every where I need to in the truck but I have been riding it on some trails behind the house.

Found a pretty good deal on a used trailer for it at Wild Rivers and got a set of chains for it. All set for when the ice gets a little worse.

    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.
    • nw wisconee private marsh
    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
