William, she's a stocker. Fronts are AT25x8-12 and the Rears are 25x11-12 I'm going to prob go a little larger down the road one I run these tires out but the got a lot of life left. As far as a lift there is none that I'm aware of. I bought it from a lady who's husband died. Seems pretty much stock. only 333 miles and 116 hours. Just used around the house and to plow.

Great looking bike. I put over 9,000 miles on my 03 700. Loved that machine. It always had a different sound. My wife said it sounded kind of like a jet engine. She could always tell it was me coming.

You can't go any wider on the front tires without spacers or offset wheels. They will rub the front struts.

Enjoy that awesome ride. Watch the carb boots. I replaced a couple of them. They tend to crack from the vibration. If you see them off you will wonder how that can happen as they are very thick. If it starts to backfire look here first.

If you go wider than stock you will either need spacers or offset wheels. Also the type of tire you want will make a difference as well. Some tires are wider than others.

The older machines are harder to go with larger tires than the newer ones. I always ran stock size and has a ball.

If you are wanting more of a mud tire you may want to take a look at the Interco Swamp Lite in 26x9-12 and 26x10-12. The 9 will more than likely rub with stock wheels.
