got a few questions.

ok so we have a í11 sport 700cc. i have been thinking about snorkeling it. but i would like the snorkel opening to face forward. kinda like it dose on trucks. so itís not so hard on the motor when we are just going down the trails or riding around are land in snow. any ideas on what i could do if i do it? also what kinda tires are you guys running? we ride logging roads. snow mud and thru some creeks and just all around trail riding. i was thinking maxxis big horns. thanks a head of time for the info guys!

Welcome to RT

Bighorns are great tires, maybe for less money for a rhino you can get Duro's, check rockymountain ATV

but really for snow and heavier mud, i would get Mudlights

many peeps have snorkeled rhinos, but there are so many ways to do it, it is hard to recommend a certain way. your 700 already has the front Air box right?? so maybe you only need to snorkle the Belt drive intake.

are you gonna traverse alot of water???

thanks! ok iíll look at them. i like mud lights (we put them on the back of are honda recon 250cc) but i donít like how they wear really fast. we ride on asphalt some. mainly just from wear we park the truck/trail to wear we can hit a trail head. yeah it has air box up front. i looked at the snorkel kit they sell. but it does not look like it would work with a windshield. i thought about making one out of PVC pipe. have it come out by the cage and go up it. kinda like how they go up along the A pillar on trucks. wire tie or clamp it to the cage. maybe not go all the way to the top. anyone think that would work?

For tires, I run a set of Goodyear Mud Runners. Great all around tire. I have run them at Glamis and they do well in the sand also. I have run this set on my '07 Rhino now for 2200 miles and had them on a Rincon before the Rhino and run them on it for 2000 miles. Still in good shape. A friend run a set on his Rincon for about 13,000 miles. He rides mostly trails.

And I forgot to add that they were used when I bought them. New ones were a little more expensive back in '04 than the other tires but I feel I have more than gotten my money's worth from them. I have heard of some going through the ITP Mud Lites pretty fast. Maybe they last longer now days. If I needed another set today, I would get them again. They are a little heaver than others. I recently weighed them and compared them to the stockers and I think they totaled up to about 30 lbs. more than the stockers.

ok thanks! and mud lights do wear kinda fast. and yeah i think when it gets new tires they will be a heaver tire. the stock are i think 2 ply? maybe 3 ply. iím kinda surprised i have not popped one yet. but with the 700 it should not madder that much.
