You should check the email i sent you a while back. I paid 160 a tire and one leaks so i got to put slime in it to stop it so im still waiting on the tire you said you where going to send me that you said you where out of stock months ago.
Just got a return email from Casey, after sending in the requested pics. They are going to warranty the tires 100%, but they won't have any new ones to send me till Dec 10th(I can keep these until then), and I have to pay the return freight. - Not overly happy about that since the defect is not my fault, but I'll deal with it.
Ok, so finally got a decent amount of ride time on them in some real mud. - My bike is 1040cc with a roughly 2800 stall clutch set-up, current shift-out around 6k(needs to be closer to 7, different story). This is a TRV(2-seat) t-cat, so not a light bike & I was riding double.
Mud - They hold their own against laws/backs, but definitely need a bit more wheel speed to do so. Thick mud in 2wd + reverse = not happening. Lug spacing is just too tight for this. Several times I tried to back-up w/o flipping into 4 and the only direction it went was down. I went to 4, walked up & out though. - IMO as long as you have enough wheel speed they will go wherever the others will, but not as quickly/easily.
Trails/hardpack - No matter what speed, they feel very smooth/stable & hook-up better than the a fore mentioned mud tires. Seemed to climb a tad better as well, likely due to the smoother tread contact.
Overall I would consider these a true "all-terrain" tire. Not necessarily the best at any one thing, but good all-around. - They will likely end-up on my honduh, as I'd like to put the t-cat on the OL2's to optimize it more in the mud.
Just like mike said they just rubber the bash plate so I cut it flush can't even tell it was cut and the plastic front bumper rubbed but that's cause it was already bent back.(my fault it was bent) so I cut it off to haha. but my bumper covers it up and u can't see it anyway but other than that they fit good with out the lift by I put my lift back on and still no issues. Here's a pic don't know if u can really tell but I can get better ones tm.
I was curious what are the pros and cons of having a 4” lift or not given 32” assasinators will fit on xmr 1000 with new floor boards. Just seems lift just makes breaking things easier while not going through any more mud?
Hey guys i have a 2008 kawasaki brute force 750 its all stock i ordered 28x10x12 and 28x12x12 maxxis zillas for it and im wondering if they will fit i know they will fit but i mean like on stock rims will they be sticking out enough on stock rims?
Looking for a Set of Bowman Mudwalkers to go on an old Honda i picked up and not having any luck finding any. I know they dont make them anymore so if you have a set or know someone that has a set and you want to get rid of them Id like to take them off your hands. Thanks in advance
