When you install a lift you increase the angle of axils to the cv joints. I don't think there is a fix for that other than installing heavy duty axils & cv joints, Gorilla, Rihno, Highlifter. Taller tires is an option vs the lift.
if you go to bigger tires (regardless of the rim) you're putting the strain on the drive system (usually the belt) instead of the cv joint. There's ALWAYS a trade-off. if you upgrade to a kevlar belt you ought to be fine assuming you're really good about maintenance and using really good oils. Also, with bigger tires you'll lose acceleration.
Was riding yesterday on the trails, and my belt went. Looking for recommendations for a new belt. Go back with a Polaris, or is there an aftermarket that works better? The stock belt sounds like it exploded, only 47 hours on the bike...
So mess started last year no start. After trying different things replaced oem carb bought China carb ebay. Started fine but would not go above idle without stalling. Messed with air fuel mixture. No help ordered another carb same issue

I have an 850 sportsman with a locked up motor. I open it up and the rod is bent, and the piston is shattered. But in the other cylinder everything is fine. What caused this? Could the spark plugs be firing at the wrong time? If so how do I fix it from happening again?
