Do you have the 450 or the 525 because I heard some stock 525's with haulers were running with some drag yfz's and raptor's out at glamis. I've been looking at them a lot but I'm not sure if i want to pay the extra money for one

what's done to the yfz and the kawi and how much do you think the ktm beats it in a drag race. I'm just wondering because I only dune and drag race so I'm trying to figure out if its worth it to get the ktm or get another yfz and put the money into it to beat the ktm. I don't like to lose

Alright thanks I think I'm just going to have to put the money in the yfz. I raced my first ktm out at pismo this weekend but it was a 450. It had haulers and mohawks on bead locks all the way around. I raced him 2 or 3 times and it wasn't close I only saw him at the launch but I don't know if it was just the rider or the bike. I'm not trying to talk crap about the ktm though because my bikes not stock its just a little bolt on bike with good paddles but it moves pretty good.

They're not to bad dont hook up like haulers or Itp sand stars but smooth an u can slidem around better so all in all not bad.

I run in the Oregon dunes, 10 paddle haulers on SS rims. Heal gaurds removed. I have not messed with much, thinking about going down a tooth in the front secnd gear seems kind of tall for some of the hilly tree manuevering.

Hey Kayteem
I'm in Oregon also. I run 9 paddle extremes at 5lbs. Works good for me. I was thinking of changing sprockets also. 1 down in front and 1 in the rear. I just need more rpm's in 3rd when hill dragging so I can hopefully get into 4th. So Have you added JD jetting yet?
I'll be at Florence this Sat. 06/21/08 camp site 006 south jetty if your in the area, feel free drop bye.
