    Finally got my new tires put on. Night and day difference, I wanted to thank everyone that contributed to the article on the front tire selections we have available. I picked the Kenda K270 by the way, 120/80/18.

    I stuck with the stock rear though, I am not quite up for squeezing an ATV tire on the back... yet.

    Thanks guys!

    Hums less on the road then the stock tire and hooks up a lot better in the woods I am really please. I also ordered parts to replace my chain and sprockets so I hope to do that this weekend, I just hope I don't screw it up.
