I know these beast are finicky on power and a lot of people stick to stock sizes for this reason, and some don't care and go full bore with big tires.  Will going up one tire size to 26" make that big of a difference?  Ive already changed my cage to add weight (4 seater).  I don't want to get passed by a golf cart, but i got a deal on a set of 26" so I need to know is it worth it?

I don't think you will notice much if any power loss going to a 26 depending on what u go with for a tire that is

I have a set of 26x10x12 trilobites for the back a buddy of mine gave me they are brand new, so I thought id buy the fronts and run them but if it will be a miserable power loss maybe not?

I run 28 zillas when my motor was stock I didn't notice much loss at all so id say u wont even notice u went to 26's its when u get up into 27-29 u really start to notice the power difference

chris as you know I have the 4 seater cage etc. ontop of that I am running a 2" cfm lift and 4- 28x11 mega mayhems. those tires are 35lbs each. my motor is 100% stock all I have is clutch work I can keep those tires going jus fine. yes I do feel the power loss espically on the road going back to camp at the hhr ride.  may not be the fastest or the most powerful but it gets it done and gets me home every time. I don't think you will notice much if anything at all. the power loss would probably be less then what you lost with adding the cage and seat.

Chris, I ran 27X14 on my 450, did a few minor mod to increase the power and was very happy with the overall performance. Pulled the 27X14 off a couple weeks ago and put shock 25X12 on her and took her out and was why surprised at the peep she had. Wouldn't go any faster but got there sooner. Felt kinda like a little 'hot rod'. Was surprised but definitely like the bigger wheel setup over stock. Hell I wasn't going to beat anyone in a drag race anyway.

You're gonna tell a difference Chris .  Mine had 27 somethin or others on it whenever I bought it...yeah it turned them ok... I guess.  I blame those tires ( because of the 800 miles the p.o. put on it...heard stories from others ,  about his driving "style" ) on my wet clutch needing replaced prematurely .  I've considered going to 26x9's all the way around on mine...just haven't convinced myself , the extra 1/2 " of clearance is worth the added weight .  My bud (Trav...he was at Ashland w/us ) ,  say's that's what he's gonna go with this go around...I'll wait and  see how his does. 

In your case ,  it's kinda about the $$...heck of a lot cheaper to buy 2 ,  instead of 4 !!

When I bought my Rhino it also had 27" 589 tires and the wet clutch was burn't out, 26-27 look cool but the power loss and premature part wear is not worth it for me.

That's good to know about the 'Mule', Chad. lol.... But with the 27X14 on the flats my 450 will finally get up to 42-43 mph, it takes a little bit but she'll do it. And that's about as fast as a stock 700 with 25X12's. It's really a nice trail bike with the little women a long. She's not into the bumpy, fast action.

As long it its a LITTLE woman....a big one would REALLY rob power.

I cant resist it...
"She's not into the bumpy, fast action" - you talking about the women still or the Rhino? Rolling Eyes

Do you need the extra ground clearance? If not, just stay with 25s. If you want the look of big wheels and tires like me, get 'em. It will only make you happy every time you look at your machine. Power loss on my totally stock 700 is minimal with 27 inch tires. I don't drive fast anyways.
