120 Width tire - hitting coolant reservoir.

Recommended Posts

I put on a 120 width tire on my 2007 WR450. I really like the bigger tire. About this same time I had a little wreck.

Those of you that have added a 120, do you hit your coolant reservoir or side panel?

I'm asking this because it could be that my sub frame is tweaked and that is causing my issue.

Mine only hits when hitting some larger bumps which isn't every time but annoying. I'm assuming you are fine when you are going through the bumps?

yess. no issues throughout its travel. Try adding a couple washers behind everything and see if it helps. You dont want that tire rubbing a hole in the bottle. You could end up sucking mud and dirt into the system.

There is no reason for a 120 tire to hit the coolant bottle, unless it is a 'extreme' tire like the tractionator.

The 120 dimension does not account for side knobby width, so the fact that it is a 120 is irrelevant.

Check your wheel alignment.

The tire im using is the tractionator enduro it and its bigger (width wise) than all the other 120's ive used: kendas, michelins, bridgestones. That being said.. What tire are you using rmk? are the wheel spacers properly seated?

I'm running the Maxxis Desert IT. Looking at my subframe with closer inspection, I believe that it's bent on that side causing my issue. I wrecked a few months before getting this tire and really never realized that side of the subframe. I have checked my wheel alignment and it doesn't seem off.
