I have the roof, windshield, brushguard, 14in sti hd4s and 27x9 roctanes up front and 27x11 roctanes in the back. i was riding yesterday and altho i had a slow rhino sport in front of me the best i could do on flat ground was 42mph. it get to 33 with ease but after that takes awhile to get up to 42. from what i read that seems slow. maybe tires are heavy???

how much air do you run in your tires? and do you hit 50 easy with the windshield up? also with the clutch kit how well does it do in mud and rocks and hills?

sorry for all the questions, just dont know much about these things and im trying to learn :)

I have stock tires and wheels, for now, and I have Yamaha folding windshield. Mine is an EPS model also, and I hit 50 with ease.

seems like everyones getting to almost 50 (easily) which was what i expected but 42 with jus me and a cooler of beer had me shocked. maybe i just got a slow one or maybe it still needs more break in time??? idk. only have 80 miles on it.

If my calculations are correct that's 49 mph. Mine with stock tires would do 51 with ease. Now I have 27s all around with windshield and it does about 44 mph on pavment. The bigger tires make the stock setup slugish. I will be doing a sheave or clutch kit next spring. Spent way to much this season already and once fall hits its time to get the snowmobiles ready and that will drain the cash flow even worse. Lol

30's 2" lift. Easy cruising on soft dirt roads holding 35mph on speedo. GPS had me at 40mph not wide open at all. I'll try an get it on a pave rd soon with gps. Should do 50mph easy I would think. Stock clutch.

Im thinking mine just needed some breakin time because last week with me the wife and a cooler full of bud lite i got up to 49 on pavement. couldve went even faster i think but was nervous about takn a paved corner at 50+ mph so i let off the gas. i still want to get the sheeve and clutch kit some day though
