well if your talking about the 400 at then i would have to somewhat agree......there trannys are pretty poorly built and from what ive heard dont last very long

Foreman 400 or Rancher 400AT? If its the Foreman 400 you can definately go bigger with no problems, if you wanna go bigger then 27" though you'll have to start doing some mods for either power or gearing. If its a Rancher 400AT I would agree with them but not for the same reasons, bigger tires in and of themselves will not cause any damage to the transmission, I would say that any larger on a 400AT is a bad idea because you will be putting the bike under a lot more strain all the time and making the bike work harder all the time IS bad for the tranny which as mentioned is nothing to brag about to begin with. The 400ATs are also highly geared and extremely underpowered all at the same time so you really shouldn't expect to properly spin any tires bigger then what you got anyway. And unfortunately there is nothing you can currently do to fix the high gearing.
