This sunday? I still need to order some paddles. If I don't head to NV I might head to glamis. I'll let you know, I've never been before so it would be nice to have someone to meet up with to kinda show me the area.

Hey FuelATV, what size is that rear and is it a hauler or an extreme? I was actually thinking of trying that new Aerospeed from AMS. I want a tire that can do the hill climbs but still have fun whipping it around. Can you spin the rear end around on a straight paddle? Plus I need to get one of your bumbers soon, do you have the blacks in stock?

Hey on that note, I just got the Trinity set up delivered. Somehow they forgot to include the brackets :( Anyways do you guys think you might be interested in a little test and tune on Sunday? I can leave the stuff off or put it on and try both the bikes out to see just how good this product is? Anyways I'll do the work, I don't mind wrenching and you guys can give me your opinions. Might make for some good write up. Let me know, Jim :idea:

NWLTR450 - i just peeled them off. I did do it right when i got the bike so it might have been easier for me. Just peel really slow. I have 9 cup 20x11x9 glidders on the bike now. They are mounted on 9x9 rims. I will let you know how they work monday. The glidder has a smaller cup and should slide very well.

SANDJUNKIE - FORSURE......we will be at glamis around 9:00 a.m. Put the stuff on yours and we will ride both bikes. My bike has sparky removed, no airbox lid, and cherry bomb. That will be a good test to see if its worth the money. I do still have a 14 front sprocket. Do you have a 13 or 14?

I still have the stock sprocket on mine. I'll see if I can grab a 13 tooth on ebay if you think it's a better performance upgrade. Looking forward to hearing about the 9 x 9 rims since I'm looking at some HiPers. The 10's are about $13 more but I'd like to hear what you think. Anyways the brackets are supposed to be here today and I will get to stepping. Talk to ya soon. :idea:

Bring the 13, but leave the 14 on so we can have both bike pretty close to compair. I am not running a 13 FORSURE. I needed more topend on the bike stock. So i hope with the cherry bomb ect it will pull the 20" and give me a little more on the top.

I had a guy that has been in the sand business for many years tell me that the only thing the aerospeeds are good for is digging a well. I bought my dune tires from him (front sandstars, rear sidewinders). He told me that in his experience the sidewinders or the sandstars worked the best for all around use. The sandstars were like $30 or $40 more and he said they don't notice any performace difference between them. My brother had some aerospeeds on his yfz and I was not impressed at all, actually he sold them after one trip to the dunes. I liked the sidewinders on my ltr seemed to work great.

I personally dont like the sand stars. I have them on the wife's 250R. They are heavy and you can feel it. They also dont turn as good as sand skates. I do think they look the best for sure. I actually cut the extra little paddles off of the wifes sand stars. We will see how that works sunday also. Here is my opinion I have ridden alot of tires. If you want a tire that turns easy go with sand skate I or sand skate II. In my opnion the ssII looks better and performs better for whoop sections and jumping. I think due to stiffer side wall. The ssI is no doubt lighter, faster, and avail in comp cut for light weight applications. These are the ONLY 2 v paddles i recommmend. Best bet is to try all of the tires you can before buying. Not everyone rides the same. I really dont even like paddles, and once i am done building this bike i will run knobs at about 3lbs. They work great for me and offer the best feed back when ridding hard.

Hey Fuel, I will meet you at 9:00am. My question now is what all do I need to bring to get a sticker from the ranger? Or is there a way to get one here in AZ before I go?

Sounds good.If I come in on the 78 that will bring me to the store right?

Question:What did you use to remove the little bits of glue residue that the decals left over? I was usein this stuff called Desolve-it, but I noticed it was leaving kinda flat spots where I had used it, not really noticlble untill you look at it. But enough to bug me.

I use Goo Gone it's made for taking sticker adhesive off and doesn't hurt anything! Get it at any wall mart if the glue is really tough it still works great ust requires a little more elbow grease! When I worked in a detail shop it's what we used for all glue on paint ,plastic or whatever!
