I called advance cycle today to order new tires for my machine. Carl came up with a price of $385 for 4 new tires. $40 to mount them. I went and compared prices to rocky mountain ATV website and their price was $383.96 for the same. Not even a $2 difference. (Rocky mtn did offer free shipping) New tires will be in Friday.

I also order some Bighorn 2.0 but from bikebandit.com last week and they came on friday . Saturday tryed to use the same bead breaker that I use on the sport tires and could not break them but John (AKA jmac 650 ) has a friend with a garage and he broke them in two min. Took them back home and my brother and I pulled them off and put the new Bighorns 2.0 on. Will take them out later today and see how they ride right now have go fix a friends back door that just fell apart.

Mike how did you make out with your tires and the other parts you needed to get ?

I purchased a portable tire changer from Harbor Freight ($60, couldnt beat the price). I've done several tires now, and 2 ppl can swap a set (4) of tires in less than a 1/2 hour. Thats with removing the old tires and mounting new ones.Just ask D.H., he's a pro :P

New tires came in last Friday, went down and had them mounted up. Then went up to Cube Auto for the CV Boot. They do not have the A-arm bushings. I will have to order them from country cat. Those will only cost me about $100 to replace all of them. (they are worn but not critical yet)

The CV boot comes as a kit so it shouldn't be too hard to change it. Was real busy the past few days so I hope to get to it this week.

Kathy, I went to the link you provided (bikebandit) and put in for the tires I bought, the price came up $355 before shipping. That would be $30 cheaper then Advance Cycle. Don't know what the shipping would add on to it.

We got them for $309 2-25x10x12 and 2-25x8x12 thats with the $8 shipping and a 10% off coupon code we got off line . But after just looking at them on Bikebandit I see that they went up $5 a tire since last week when we ordered ours.

Those are the same sizes I needed. I went by my manual as to what sizes I needed. I also did not have the 10% off coupon so that would explain the difference. I just ordered all the A-Arm bushings and related parts from an online place and that ran about $230 for everything. I plan to replace them all around, this will help the new tires wear better and improve handling. Ill change the torn boot at the same time and will be good to go for the year's riding season.

An autoparts store may be able to hook you up with the broken stud; possibly cheaper too.

Guess I'm not the only one having bad luck this week... :rolleyes: Put a starter, battery, wipers and tires on my truck all for a little over $900.00... :( Then we come to the quad. $237 for a rear caliper and $45.00 for brake pads. Who's buying at the Sportsman Inn??? I'm broke... :unsure:

Probably, but the broken stud is now embedded in the bolt. SO either way I have to run to Cube auto for the part since these are "LE" bolts. The Arctic Cat dealer is also a auto parts store.
