    Tires

    Sorry all this might be a little long. New member here. I have a 2018 900xp. I've put on superatv arched and 1.5 forward arms and was going to do a 2in lift for 28x10x14 tires all the way around on 4x3 offset wheels. A lot of people said you won't notice the difference of the added weight and change in gearing. I have recently talked to a few people that said there was a big difference and they wished they wouldn't have done it. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks all.

    Welcome, sounds like you're off to a good start - we like pictures so post away. Lots of good input around here and lots of people willing to help you spend money.

    Do have a question: By Change in gearing are you referring to the final drive ratio with the larger heavier tire? Or the expense of changing the actual gearsets?

    Hello. Yes. I. Referring to the affect on the final drive ratio with the bigger tires. I am concerned that it will make it sluggish.

    Its going to make a difference. How much has a lot to do with the weight of the tire. Some of them are pretty dang heavy. If you can stay around 30lbs. and under, you won't be kicking yourself later. I ran a set of 28 maxxis zillas on my 900. A light tire for their size. And there's always the option to flash the ecu to get your power back.

    Every tire I have been interested in is over 30 lbs. I'm leaning more towards 27in now. I'm thinking I will be better off. I don't really want to go the tuning route. Reliability is important to me so hoping this engine doesn't disappoint me.

    I think u will be fine with 28 in. I had 27s on my 570 midsize along with mma lift and super atv a arms. Best money I spent on it. The small loss of power in high range was well worth the extra traction and clearance.

    Did you notice much difference in low range? I'm not concerned with losing high speed power in high range. But I don't want lower speed high range to be unusable if that makes sense. Thanks again for the info.

    I have a 900 with 28" tires and 14" wheels. Going from 25" to 28" you do see a power loss. But you see gains in other ways with the taller tires. Also for not big money send your computer to Gilomen to get it programed to get all your lost power back and then some extra thrown in.

    I've read a lot about Gilomen tunes and clutching. Just not sure I want to do that. I'm hoping for long term reliability from this machine. I do have the extended warranty. Although I will say I haven't heard of anyone having problems with their engine after it's been tunes by them.

    I wouldn't be concerned about reliability. The tune will richen up the lean mapping from the factory thats there to meet epa standards. Cooling fan on 20 degrees cooler. Both make for an all around happier running motor. You wouldn't have to clutch it if you didn't want to. You would still get the benefit of 100% throttle opening and regain some pep back. Remember, these are the same detuned motors that are in the RZR's spinning 8500 rpm all day blasting through the dunes.
