I just bought some skat trak 7 paddle haulers 22x11x10 on 10x8 wheels. I went with the 22's hoping that will make up a little with the low gearing. I'll be taking it out this weekend so we will se how they do.

Those are good paddles. They be a little much for a stock bike. But who keeps there bike stock? They throw a nice roost also. And they will slide ok, you just have to work a little harder.

yah, the straight paddles are harder to slide and whatnot but alot better for keeping your power and doin it in a good fast manner, thats what i think is correct

Good idea going with the larger tires because of the low gearing. Let us know how you like them.

I'd like to now how the power is with the bigger tires.

Has anyone tried Padla Brats by Sand Tires Unlimited? I heard they're supposed to make a huge difference when drag racing.

One of the guys at the local performance shop was telling me that the Brats are a newer tire and they're outperforming the Skat Tracs.

I'm running 8 paddle haulers on my Raptor. I love them! I should have tried a 7 or 6 paddle though. Because the Raptor revs slower, it just hooks up and I don't get much wheel spin. A seven paddle tire on the KFX should work really well!

Brats are a great tire but really drag racing only due to very light weight because of 2 plys and i want to say they can have issues sealing a bead, or ive heard. Only really suggested for drag racing... And the fact they are around 150 a peice i think makes them a difficult thing to swallow

I have 6 cup Comp cut Brats on my modded LTR. They are REALLY light. And I run 8psi in them and they slide just fine.I'm only 180lbs. They do leak, mine only hold air for about 4days. One set that a friend had was leaking out the side wall :blink: .
