Do you need to move rear wheel to run sand paddle?

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering if there's enough room to run a sand paddle tire on an 05 WR450 in the stock location without adding to the chain and moving the wheel back. Thanks.

you should be okay. make sure to take off the plastic guard in front of the wheel that hangs off of the airbox, or it'll get sucked in and mangled by the paddle.

adjust your chain appropriately, and you'll be fine.

I didn't have to remove anything, there was plenty of clearance...SC

i remove the guard out of habit. i've never run mine on the WR. i've just seen a lot of bikes with chewed up guards at the dunes because of the paddle suction effect.

maybe i'll give it a try at glamis on halloween.
