I'm waiting until my warranty period is over to put a clutch kit in mine. Seems popular opinion here is a clutch kit is the best bang for your buck as far as performance goes..

Clutching and tires have to be the best mods you can do. Those two things will change the attitutude of your atv.

Good move! A clutch kit might be your next best investment. I have, and other swear too, a QSC kit. Look up Ridinagain on this forum, he will hook you up. Arm protectors and a full skid plate from Ricochet will give you peace of mind. If you don;t have one already, a winch would should be on the top of your list. Cold weather? I love my heated grips, cheap mod that always makes me smile. Bumpers were important to me too, I ride in a lot of tight places and have jackass friends that rearend me. If you ride at night, you might want to look into auxiliary lights. LEDs have come a long way, lots of info on this forum about those.

It just keeps going..... Although this forum has saved me money and headaches, in reality, I think all the reading I do makes me spend more money on goodies I otherwise would not have known about.

It's really about what you're doing with your machine, but as already stated clutching and tires are the top dogs. after that my #1 priority would be storage. then protection for the machine (skids, bumpers), lights, and lastly comfort (heated grips, hand guards, thumb warmer, etc)

The zilla is already pretty dam light.

If you go too lightweight, you risk punctures.

Yea I'm happy with the weight of the zillas. I'm running ss212 rims also they don't seem very heavy either.

Rims could get lighter on models that come with steel rims right?
Yes and no... I really dont think the steelies on these quads are all that heavy, plus to get a comparable strength aluminum rim the thickness in creases for the aluminum. So the weight savings really aren't that much.

not likely. Strength per pound Ali is stronger, but to get comparable strength to steel the dimensions get much larger. so what little weight loss you get is mitigated by the fact that the product is now oversized and cumbersome. when I was working for a tire shop, the Ali wheels tended to be heavier than the steel wheels. due to the requirement of needing more metal to handle the loads.

It puts power to the ground more efficiently especially when adding larger tires.
