Going to Busco Memorial Day weekend

Taking my 15 Rubi to busco for the first time this Memorial Day weekend. It's all stock except for an extreme snorkel and 26" zillas. For some reason my snorkel leaks a small bit even after I "thought" I sealed it, but I'll have the problem fixed soon enough. Anything else I should do to the bike before I go? Looking for advice since I have only been to Hatfield McCoy with this bike. Thanks y'all.

Was wondering if I should look at a gear reduction kit?

No zillas are fairly light and they are only 26" so no need for a gear reduction. Mine pulls 28" outlaws fine

Becareful not to sink it at busco. Some deep holes there. Mud riders heaven.

Yea any pointers would be great! I just hope the rubi is good enough of a bike to ride there with someone on the back!

be careful with the "peanut butter" looking mud. it's no joke and, as mentioned above, a lot of the holes there are massive. have fun! that place is awesome to ride!!

I've thought about trading my rubi in for a brute force 750 or can am outlander 850 before I go down there. Any advice on that? Or should I just be confident in my rubi and stick with it?
