Hey guys. I just put 25 inch mud lts on my 2013 500 sportsman. I find the really rough riding and my handle bars and rear box now shake a little when I'm slowing down almost to a stop. Is this normal?

Hmmm....not sure I'm a fan of the shaking. I figure the shaking will eventually have a negative affect on the bike??

I've tried a few different pressures. Right now I'm at 4.5. The shake is on blacktop. If I let the bike coast to a stop it happens when I'm almost completely stopped.

I had a set of them on a 08 Sportsman 500 EFI that did the same thing. I also got a bunch of tire punctures. I went to Big Horns after them and never had a problem.

any tire with a more aggressive tread will cause a rougher ride. Also, mud lites are just a terrible tire all around.
