width of fourwheeler
I have had my 07 sp 700 for about nine months and the other day out of curiosity i decided to measure how wide it was from out side of the rear tires. i came up with a little over 48 inches about 48.5 to be exact but its hard to be to precise. I plan to do some trail riding this year and was wondering if that would be an issue on any wi trails ( i know(think) there is some rule about atvs only being 48inches wide. Also it has additional splash guards that make it wider(are fenders part of the measurement. I am not sure why its wider than 48. The tires are goodyear rawhides with 12 inch rims not sure on the width and the quads at my dads. Hoping nobody sees any real issues with this either with the DNR or gates that may be on the trails. As always...any insite is greatly appreciated.

To be trail OHV legal the tires need to be under 50in wide! This is standardized throughout the US!

Sweet...thanks.... i was getting a little excited... For some reason i 48 stuck in my brain.... and i really couldnt justify new tires even though i dont care for the rawhides especially in the snow.
