yeah I say try it w/ almond. The chart said 28 lbs... which is the same as my 26" MST's lol... So I'm not going to change my clutch at all at first (maroon/black) & see what happenes. Let me know how you like the 11's up front, I'm debating that myself.

lol sandman but jon i was looking at all wide or skinny wide too but the skinny 30's are almost to skinny and the way the lugs are on these tires, it seems like they may want to dig and going that skinny might not be so good so thats why i went wide, plus i can rotate now like my truck lol even wear everywhere hahaha

Let us know how you like them. I will be ordering 30's soon but will go with the 9's in the front and the 11s in the back. Well be ordering another set of rims also. Will have a set of 28s and a set of 30s.

You should be fine with the Almond i think lilbigtonka.

I had the 11's on the front of mine at first now i have the 9's. The 9's do look a little awkward because they are so skinny and mine are 28's. i'm sure the 30's look even crazier. For mud riding and looking cool the 11's win hands down but for ease of turning the 9's are quit a bit easer to turn side to side. I did not notice any power difference between the two. Plus the 9's do not stick out past the fenders like the 11's do. They don't sling as much mud on the rider.

what about the weight lighter weight takes higher rpm's to close the primary and heavier weights take less rpm's is that principal right?

sorta yes but it also depends on your riding style like if you extrmeme mud i would go a spring lower geared then what you should have example thick mudding all the time and you should have lime green i would get red but if you are strictly trail riding and say on 29.5 you should have red but i would go lime green so you get more umphhh meaning mph outta the bike

Tim, you need lime green secondary spring max for those tires. Anything more is most definitely overkill and you have no business with yellow in there. i'd get that out quick like.

IMO stock weights are the way to go for the average mud/trail rider.

I seen BigP turn his 28 outlaws in some peanut butter thick mud with the lime green secondary spring. That should be plenty for you.
