Anyone try these on the new 700? Been looking at replacing my stockers and I understand the 27" zilla is actually 26" tall. I would think these would fit the 700 with no mods. Yes or no? Thanks

I don't think the Zilla's actually run that much smaller than normal tires. Someone who owns a Polaris measured their Zillas and the 27" measures 26 7/8". That's still very close to 27". Not sure if the stock Kodiak 700 will run with those tires.

Maybe you can borrow someone's 27" set to see how it fits.

Finally got around to putting the zillas on my Kodiak today. Quite a size difference but absolutely no power loss. Very pleased.

I have put 27 zillas on my Kodiak with stock suspension and clutches. These tires work well on just about everything I have thrown at them. Mud, creek gravel, hard pack, and even run fairly smooth on asphalt. With stock settings in low gear they bite hard and will stand the bike up from a stop. Plenty of power for mudding and hill climbing. No noticeable power loss as these are very light albeit aggressive tires. 27's have one and an eight inch tread. Best part is I can go places in two wheel that took four wheel before.

No lift kit. I wouldn't put one on a quad. The axles are at enough angle as it is. Been running these tires a while now and I love them so far.

Glad to see this thread. My 27" Zillas will be arriving on Thursday. What rims are you running? I'm planning on installing them on the ugly, stock steelies on account of I'm too cheap to buy pretty wheels :D

*EDIT* Just noticed you're in Nova Scotia, too. Glad to see another Bluenoser here

I am running the stock wheels. The after markets are heavier and I don't want to cause power loss.

Excellent. I just tonight took all the wheels off mine so I can bring them to work tomorrow to dismount the stock Maxxis MU19's.

I'll find out for sure soon enough - my new tires arrived today, and I've got them and the rims in the truck waiting to be put together at work tomorrow

Just4Kixx are you running an aftermarket clutch kit? How much did you pay for the fender guards with foot rests? Who makes them?
I haven't installed a clutch kit. I might in the future - this is something I've been wanting to do even before the tires. I haven't ridden it on the trails yet so I don't know how much they affect performance, but others have reported no noticeable loss of power. As for the fender guards and foot pegs, they are made by Kimpex and I had them and the rear seat included in the purchase of the bike (They were included but labour wasn't - I installed them myself).
