off topic but this has been bugging me seeing some of your other threads, why did you run 9's all the way around instead of putting some 11in wide tires on the back???? it looks weird
Same reason glide said:blink: lol, nah man i have watched enough bikes with 12's all the way around to 8's on crush locks all the way. The 9's give me the power of a "pure stock" 420, while still spinning 27's with almost 1 1/2 lugs.

they're ok, not sure if it makes sense but they dont take as big as a "bite" as the executioners did lug for lug. But I still wouldnt go back to executioners, the ride is SO much smoother and i can slide around tight trails alot easier. The idea of not being able to make it some places I used to doesnt bother me.. means i wont break as much ****

I didnt go with the teeth because simply my logic kicked in saying..the more metal left there to contact the rut the better. Looks cool but **** if you ever catch your leg on it!

Itll be next week or so before I go pick it up, but when we get my buddy's paddle installed on his foreman Ill throw a picture up. He's running a 2012 foreman with 2"lift on mamba lites, goes places i can only dream of with those tires.

he runs 26x10x12 fronts 26x12x12 rear (was at stock height until last weekend) What always made us laugh was I had a 2" lift and 27 exes and he'd push me out of being stuck and play in my ruts because the measured taller than mine. Of course they are going to be heavier than your exes, he still water wheelies it in 2nd all day long. Only thing he said is he wishes he'd got 10s all the way to drop some of the unnessecary weight. I dont have any videos of the bike on my phone

Only picture I could find of the bike right now.. had to blur some..not internet friendlies out

they really do, dont get me wrong I loved my exes but didnt like the weight of them in 27s on a stock 420. Everyone thinks Oh their "lites" they wont pull.. BS the lug is about the same height as a new ex but just the design is what does it. They clean out every rotation really no matter what speed they are turning.. You dont have to have a GR the 2012s are geared so much lower than others its crazy. Slap you a clutch kit in it and haul ass!

Lol what wasn't Internet friendly? If they made the mamba lights in 27's I'd give them a try.

I just didnt feel comfortable puting a picture of all the girl in our group in half ass bikinis online. Just never a good idea. Rob youll have to look at his one day when we are all there, every 27" tire he pulls up next to the lites set even or just above other tires and he only runs 4psi.

Yea I would say there will be a upswing in Really nice Custom Knifes.....when obama does his executive orders with guns....but it's still a speculative craft and not a possessive payday.
