I have 27's and did not notice a power loss. I added a lift and lift springs at the same time, and did not notice a power difference, only a handling difference. My bike is 2wd and with the Mud Lite XL's I can go places I never could have before. Look at the pictures in my gallery. I was considering the swamp lites but when I saw them in person I was disappointed. They look more like an all-terrain tire than a mud tire.
I have 27" Super Lights. Almost identical to Mud Lites. I have noticed a small difference in power. I still start in 2nd gear and my top speed has increased to just over 46 mph. But I find that I have to downshift from 5th on hills more than I used to. Not too bad considering these are three sizes bigger than stock. I don't think you'll notice any difference going from 25 to 26". You do realize that your still going to end up stuck in snow like in your avatar?
youre good to go with 27s
power is still good
if youre gonna go 26s you might as well go 27s
its hard to tell for speed caus these machine arent built for
speed more of a power machine
so the 27s will make justice to your bike
