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!

Nice looking set up.

The Kolpin racks look great on the Grizz.

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.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
