I know the difference in the paddle construction. Assuming both tires were 10 paddle how much grip would you loose with the hauler vs. extreme??

I am guessing you would loose about the equivalent of one paddle. IE. a 10 paddle hauler would mimic the performance of a 9 paddle extreme.

Thoughts????

Enigma I'm going to put my 25" 10 paddle extremes up for sale. They are triple buffs on 9x9 blue labels. They only weigh 15 lbs each. Only thing is they have the Honda and BF 4/110 bolt pattern. Since I'm getting the 840 I want a set of sandblasters.

Hauler=5/8" height----Extreme=7/8"----So don't know if 10 paddles X 1/8" each would be equivalent to the loss of a whole paddle:hmm::hmm:

Did you measure? They should be the same height at 7/8" except the extreme paddles are 1/8" thicker.

Nope---My bad---When it said 1/8" thicker---I thought I read 1/8" taller---Sorry for the confusion.

I had 24" 9 paddle extremes before except I had a stock swingarm on the 800. They were a little much for what I liked to do. I went to a 24" edge and they worked well with stock swingarm.

I underestimated how much grip I would loose when I went +4 swingarm.

I rode some 25" 10 paddle Extremes and really liked them with the +4.

go with the extremes... haulers are for bikes with less tq... I hear folks all the time talk about having issues with them as they seem to fold over with higher tq bikes...
