Thank you! The factory tires seem pretty weak and a little worn. Would 1" taller and 1" wider all around be the way to go? I dont want to deal with clutching or other mods. Just something that is a mild improvement.Congratulations!
A lot of folks really like the big horn 2.0 for trail riding not focused on mud . But there are many many good options out there .Thank you! The factory tires seem pretty weak and a little worn.

It'll mostly be used on dry trails a sportsman 90 could get down, however, there will be creek crossings and muddy roads/trails (if it rains on a hunt, I won't go looking for mud). Nothing wild.
Ok, even at the lowest/softest suspension setting?It will handle 28’s just fine in stock form
That tire looks about perfect.A lot of folks really like the big horn 2.0 for trail riding not focused on mud . But there are many many good options out there .
Got it. Fortunatley/unfortunatley they have 50" width restrictions in some of the areas I hunt so I can't push it too much if even at all.I actually ride with 98whitelightnin and his 28” tires help him out . Especially that he has offset wheels to help push the tires out some . This is great for some of the crazy rutted trails he can go on .
No issues fitting 28’s on stock rims but it is a grey zone in needing a clutch kit depending on the weight of the tires and how you want your machine to perform. 27’s are about as big as you want to go with zero mods or issues.Ok, even at the lowest/softest suspension setting?

What are your thoughts on the 27 vs 28" size?
26’s are the biggest you can go with a touring model without some fender trimming.Well, made a deal on a 1000XP Touring which I pick up Saturday. I assume the tire advice is the same? Since its more powerful but also heavier and possibly carrying more weight with two riders?
I want to keep it the same on the two bikes for simplicity unless you all think otherwise? I am leaning 27" at the moment that way I dont have any nagging thoughts about wear/power issues.
The BH 2.0 earned the nickname of 'Flat Horn' due to the paper thin sidewalls.Based on what I've read I am thinking the bighorn 2.0 26x9"/26x11" size for both bikes (850 and 1000 touring). Since it runs large (according to some) its about as big as I can get on the Touring but wont have fitment issues or really any other issues. I can always trim the passenger metal piece. I can also have just 1 spare that fits everything.
Anyone like this plan or am I really giving up capibility by not stepping up to 27" tires?
