Im thinking about getting a pair of razr 2 for the rear wheels. I have a 2007 300ex which stock are 22-10-9. Is this a good idea i mostly ride trails and some mud. Will the acceleration go down alot? Do you think i should get 22-11-9 or 20-11-9?
If the trails you ride are rocky I would go with the 22" tires. I had them on my old 300ex. I also droped down to a 12 T front sprocket. For me it was a good combo. I have 20" razr tires on my 400ex and they are great but the 20 are to small for the local trails. Last weekend we did a 60 mile day trip down some rocky powerlines and when we got back my swingarm skid plate was about to fall off. At home I had to put the skid plate in a vise and bend it back into shape. Its a aftermarket skid plate. Iam getting a set of 22" for the trails and 20" for the sand pitts.
We run 20's on our 300. We run extreme XC Racing in some of the roughest conditions u could put any atv thru and have never had a problem. I would suggest that u get a 6 ply sidewall. That's what we run. We also run the GNCC Nationals with the 20's and have never hurt our skid plate. But we run a PRM skidplate and loctite the bolts. It WILL stay on then.And Believe my boy is very hard on quads!
