Took the first ride on the new 31" outlaws yesterday.
Rode through the creek and several mud pits. I have to say I'm very impressed with them. They pull a lot harder than my 27's.

In the mud hole, the bike seems to take a front wheels up attitude as the rear tires provided great pull to push the bike forward through the slop. They handled well on the trails at moderate speed but I could tell pushing it further was asking for trouble whether it be a bent tie rod from hitting bumps while turning or from just rolling the bike period.
You can definitely tell you are rolling on 31's. They do add some weight.

Performance in the creek sand was as good or better than my 27's. I think the size helped here.

in all, very happy!

Any power issues or did the stock BF handle them pretty good?

Seemed to pull them pretty good. Take off was good too.
There was one point where Jon and I were in the creek side by side rolling and we took off at the same time. I pulled ahead and wet the **** out of him. :D

AAAAAHHHHHHHH! HAHA! Yeah, when he says, he pulled ahead, it's b/c I wasnt even in the throttle. :D If I'd have hit the throttle I've have smoked AND wet his ***.

I had 31 inch outlaws on mine for about a month and went with 29.5 and regret it. Going back to them soon. I never noticed any power loss. Could still pull the front wheels with no problem. The extra ground clearance was nice.

The 31s are great tires. My Brute pulled them very well and never any problems out of the belt, axles, or anything else.

I have an option between the 31" skinny laws or 30" skinny backs. If there was no price difference and just had the option, what would be your decision?
