Default Anyone used a paddle tyre?

     

I,m thinking of getting one for a dune run on friday on my YZ 250 but I,ve never used one before!
Will it load up the clutch much more?
Let me know what you thought of them
Hmm thinkin of the dunes at Lancelin now!:
Miles of white virginal dunes!

Using a paddle tire in the dunes is one of the coolest feelings I ever had on a dirtbike, it's like riding on pavement, major hookup.

I never had any issues with clutch problems when using one, I am sure it stresses it a bit more, but it shouldn't cause any problems.

Buy one....buy one now!

I have in the past, but the dunes just aren't my thing. One thing to watch out for is your plastic shock guard, mine gotten eaten off my old KX with the paddle on.
