Wheel spacers for SRA BF on 26" mudlites

Postby zkeys » Wed Jun 06, 2007 9:33 am

All,
I just ordered a set of 26" Mud Lite XL's for my BF 650 SRA. I am just going to use the stock wheels for now. The question is, should I get some wheel spacers for the front or do you think I will be ok? Don't want any unwanted rubbing. Wanted rubbing on the other hand, is welcomed :shock:
Thanks,
Zack

Not familiar with Kawi....so I think you're just going to have to see. I wouldn't even put on the rears, until you test the front.

27's on a BF750

I just installed 27's/stock rims on my BF750 with no rubbing. I know the 650 and 750 are similar... hope this helps

I am not sure if you will rub but I think offset wheels or whell spacers are a good idea wider is more stable. although looks like you have a solid rear axel on your brute,,,,,,,,those are awsome machines :wink:

Yeah, after a weekend in Kentucky riding some high speed forrest trails and rocks, I could use a little wider spacing. It is actually quite a tough beast to throw around. My Prairie 360 seemed smaller, and it does not have as much power as the Brute (obviously) I really had a tough time keeping the front end down on the Brute on alot of the steep hillclimbs we did. Next on the list is to tighten up my suspension a little bit. I am a big boy, and I squat that thing pretty good!! :D
