What size machine are you getting? Regardless they aren't real big or real heavy so any losses in power or top end will be minimal.

If you hit top speed on a regular basis and worried about losing a couple of miles per hour, this may not be your sport.

I have 26 inch HTRs on M15 Crushers, it handled 50-55 mph smoothly, no wobbles, no vibration. I am pretty sure I would hit the speed limiter so it is really a non issue. I did not it took a little more throttle to slide around corners at speed compared to the ACTs. They do have much more bite, because the moment I backed off the throttle, they grabbed immediately where as the ACTs would take a moment.

The 650 will more than handle the 26" HTR.

I missed the machine size in the thread title, posted late last night haha. I had a 650 and it ripped 28" Zillas no problem, they likely weigh close to the same as the 26" HTR. I did add a clutch kit, which made a notable difference, but ran without one for a few hundred KM's no problem.

Good to know thanks I sold my 11 800xt and am replacing it with a 650.It's $900 cheaper and 90% of my riding is hunting at 8-10 kph.I do some high speed running in the summer while out camping. I'm going to get them balanced though so no Wobble at speed.I probably Will miss the power sliding.

I am sure that I could do 70 mph or more without vibration or wobble. I peaked the other day at 65 mph but ran mostly between 50-55 mph. Adding throttle at 50 mph and having the power to make it slide is nice. It is still very easy to make it slide at 30 mph.

The ACT's on my new 800 where 26's, I'd imagine it's the same on the 650. Just replaced mine with mud lites 2 inches wider both front and back.
