i really do not know but i think it would be tougher to go down a trail but you could put bigger tires on.

the only con is you risk breaking a stud if you make a big jump

I have had spacers on my last 3 utility quads. The cons are if you don't use loctite when you bolt the spacers on your quad they can come loose, and if you don't want your tires outside of your fender coverage you have to add fender flares or you will get a lot more mud on yourself. Also the added width of your quad could interfere with loading in the back of a truck or on a trailer. The pros are much better handling and stability which is why I use them. I have quite a few kms on my quads with them on and have never experienced any trouble with bearings or tie rod ends.

when I bought my 250ex, it had 2 inch spacers on them. I hated the way turned. It was hard to make sharp turns, I took them off and now it rides fun!

It can affect your handling and turning radius.

I have wondered the same thing, I bought a lift yesterday and was considering wheel spacers for added stability. But was curious of the added stress it would cause to the bike itself.
