I'll tell 'ya, I've never felt any of the tires do well in the mud, not even the 244 but I'd take the 244 and 241 any day over the stock front tire in the sand.

    TW seems to be running good and I know you mentioned a video or two ago the engine cutting out going up hill was still present. Watching and listening I can't tell it, so how is it doing? Anyway, thanks for sharing another great video.
    Good thing about Southern California is there is not much mud to contend with!

    TW is back to normal running condition. Instead of getting frustrated with trying to re-build the carb, I purchased a whole new carb instead, haha. At $45 bux it was a no-brainer.

    Yep. Sometimes when I buy used ATVs the carbs are in terrible shape. I have had good luck buying ~$35ish china carbs from eBay and throwing them on. Same for old used lawn equipment. Some have been running for years already. I clean my TW carb, but if it ever came to the point of frustration or mass amounts of time troubleshooting, I would probably try this route as well. Either way, happy you are back up and running properly. I enjoy your vids and now we can have more lol. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

    Did you purchase OEM Carb or after market/Chinese carb? Where'd you find it for $45?

    Not sure if my private message went through.

    I purchased the Rad Racing Carb on Amazon.
