Maxxis IT?

Recommended Posts

Bought a 110/100/80 Maxxis IT for my X today, anybody running this on thier bike? How much pressure are you running and how does it wear?

Thanks :naughty:

I have them on my 150, I run 15PSI in them and they wear like iron. They don't get quite as much traction as the D756 on my 250, but they are still a great tire.

i have one on my cr250 and it seems good in most conditions. i noticed it sucks in soft stuff though.

I have had great results with the Maxxis IT's. Much improved traction and wear over the Dunlops 739's I ran previously. The Dunlops just didn't last and the traction wasn't there. Also I got the Maxxis for less $$'s which is a plus. Keep in mind that wear and durability is proportional to terrain, riding style and obviously your ride. (A 450 is going to eat tires more than a 125 or 250)

I honestly think the Maxxis IT's are the best tire for the $$'s. I am sure many would agree and a few may disagree.

Also Forgot - 12 -13 PSI is what I run on both Front and Rear. Again, Tire pressure should change with the terrain. I Wouldn't go any higher than 15 or :naughty: less than 10.

15psi! That tire is so stiff there's no way you need to run it that high. 13psi tops and you'll hook up much better.

i lower the psi when its wet and muddy outside, but if everythings hard packed then i'll sacrafice a lil traction for wear.

11-15 psi, depends on terrain. 11-12 for sandy/soft. 12-13 for all around, 14 or so when it it sharp edged rocks/stumps. The side walls on the maxis are a tad thinner than some other brands, that helps traction and flex but clipping a rim pincher cuts it fast. Tire wear is very good.

are you sure???

They seem thicker to me??? And I've heard from a lot of other people the sidewall is so stiff on these that you need to run lower pressures

Rear

I use 13lbs for desert riding. 11 for track.

I have run 756, 739, 739G, 739 AT, K695. After I tried the Maxxis IT and saw how long it lasted, how well it hooked up, and the price....i will be sticking with it on the rear for now.

I do want to try some other brands though. I am using a Maxxis IT front now as well. Seems OK. But i think i will try a differnt front next time since they don't seem to wear out so fast

I have heard some good things about the new Maxxis SI. You might want to check those out.

I had mich's front and back intermediate and hated them.I just put on maxxis IT front and back and so far i like them.And they work just fine in soft stuff.And you can't beat the price ,under 100 including shipping. They were very easy to put on.Some people say they are very hard to put on because of the stiffer sidewall.I had no problems,Infact i think they were the easiest one's to put on.

I run Maxxis IT's on my R and run 13 psi in both. I race motocross and conditions range from tilled up moist dirt to concrete like hard-pack. They wear great and I can get them cheaper than any other tire. A MX buddy of mine gives them to me!

Are you sure you're talking aount the IT? It has a very thick sidewall on it.

I used them on my 450 but wouldn't on the 250 because they are so heavy. Tire wear is much better on the 250 compared to 450 anyway.

      I'm quite new to the moto scene and I've got a '09 CRF250R in need of what I believe is a top end rebuild. I've never gotten a rebuild before so I'm unfamiliar with the process and the steps to take in getting this done in a safe and efficient manner. I was wondering if anyone knew of any reputable shops in or near Vancouver, Canada (where I live) that could look at my bike and help me out with my situation. About 6 months ago I got an inspection on the bike and the shop told me that my cam bearings had "spun in their journals", requiring the installation of a new cam along with the rebuild. I haven't had anything done to the bike since the inspection so the motor is still in this state. She's running but I'm afraid that the motor is a ticking time bomb and would like a shop to take a look at it, let me know what needs to be replaced and get the rebuild done without me worrying about getting taken advantage of. I'm currently out of the country in school but have plans to get this done once I'm back. Any tips, recommendations, or help would be greatly appreciated!

      I’m wanting to powder coat my bike but it’s all new to me. I’ve got a powder coater picked out that I’ve heard is good for what I’m doing. I’m not 100% what kind of sand blaster I need and what kind of media. I have also heard you can’t cook in the oven after you’ve baked your parts is that true?

      Hi all, 
      I have a 2004 honda crf250r and it wont start hot at all. The motor was just rebuilt with a new cylinder and piston. The valves were just adjusted. It will start cold in 1 or 2 kicks with choke but as soon as it gets hot it wont start. If you bump start it the motor will just turn over without starting.  sometimes it will start. It runs great until you shut it off.  im thinking its either a fuel issue or an electrical issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Okay so the title is a little vague. 
      So it was having trouble idling and even starting when I first bought it about a month ago for $2k. 
      So I did a rough clean of carb, looked up on YouTube, Forums, Etc on how to do it. I only cleaned jets with carb cleaner and sprayed around the float bowl area and such, so not too extensive.
      Did that and I took it out to a park, It would start up right away mostly, few kicks sometimes, but when I got it started, I had to keep the choke on. Right when I was ready to go fast and go up to 3rd and 4th gear I'd switch it off and it would work fine and sound fine and everything, but when I slowed back down and coasted around 1st gear i'd pop it back out again because it sounded like it was going to do. I have some videos if people would like me to link to them.
       
      So after that I decided to take it apart and replace spark plug with OEM NGK R0409B-8, replace main jet from a old 170 to a new 170, replaced pilot jet from a old 40 to a new 42, and kept starter jet the same just made sure that wasn't clogged, ordered a new adjustable fuel screw and used that.
      and it was still having a little bit of problems! I just started up today and the day before today. It would run only with choke on, if i twisted throttle in neutral it sounded pretty good, no gun shot noises or anything, pretty smooth. 
      If I tried to take choke off it would die immediately. So I started it back up again, took around 6 kicks.. So again with choke on it sounded like it was starting to lose power and RPM's would drop so I'd twist throttle a few times and it would stay idling.. then after a small amount of time, start to sound like its about to die again... so I would rev it up again, and repeat..
       
      Fuel line isn't clogged, flows fine.
      I tried fuel screw everywhere between 1 and 2 turns out..
      I checked valve clearances, and I'm no expert but from the videos I watched the slipped underneath intake and exhaust with only minor force.
      So I'm lost.. 
      Maybe float bowl is messed up? Should I just do a COMPLETE carb rebuild from videos I've seen on youtube, like this one -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AXb9UprT30? Or what? 
       
      It's getting annoying taking it apart all the time, I jsut want it to start up quickly and run well!!
       
      Thank you!
       
      Austin, TX, Elevation 600ft, where I ride its around 900ft
