I know I will loose some hp but will there really be that much of a loss difference between the 2 on a 500. I hear the bighorn originals wear better and have better tread but what about hp loss

I would say yes, thee will be a noticeable loss on a 500. There is about a 4 lb difference per tire between the two, so an extra 16 lbs of rotating mass on a smaller hp quad.

I have the 2.0s on a 400, and I really didn't notice any power difference at all. I'd imagine that the 500 would handle Bighorn Originals equally well. I stuck with the stock size, btw. If you're going up to 26's, im sure you'll feel it with either tire, but I can't really speak to that since I haven't done it.

ok thanks that's good to know I was kinda pushing for the bighorn originals.do you have any performance mods or clutch work? Would aluminum rims like in your profile pic cut down on the weight?

I would go stock size

No performance mods all stock except the air filter. The rims I have are stock as well & it came with 25" carlisles. Whenever the BH wear out going to move up to 26". Thought your 500 came with 26" tires.
