I have to agree with mark, that seems to be a lot of tire for the size of motor you have.

only time will tell, should dyno 65 +, also seems the majority ive seen are running 8 to 12 paddle 22s, but dont know weight to power ratios on what i see either.
i was running 8 paddle 20s, and it didnt feel like it was enough. and it should be 60 lbs lighter now too. i wont know untill its on the sand i guess, along with 3 diff. gear sets to play with, for a total of 6 diff. combos. from 13/36 to 14/39.

12 paddle would be a glider and the paddles on those are much smaller, I know bikes making more power than that only running 8 paddle haulers. Not trying to give you a hard time just looking out for a fellow racer.

i wasnt sure that was going to be as much a factor as the hauler and extreme are identical except the paddle on the extreme is 1/8 thicker for less flex. and thats cool, take all the help i can get.

my thought at the time was, all the stock bore duners with less power were running 20in. 6 or 7 paddle extremes, so i fugure 15 plus more hp and less weight would pull the 22 ,8 paddle ok,
well, if its too much, its just too much, should be easy to get rid of when the time comes.

thanks for the heads up.

Lookin good so far. We made 67 with a 545 LTR, and it was a ton of work and a ton of money to get there.

Keep up the good work.

Looks like your bike is coming along. Are you going to make it to any of the races?

well, after looking at many suggestions, and trying to find something that would be a good duner and still drag it out, i went with a 21x12x8 7 paddle hauler on a 9x8 wheel.
the tires new in stock shipped to me for $209.00
