Sand dune air pressures ??

Off to Glammis this weekend and just shoe horned a paddle on the WR. Been a while since I've been tothe dunes and for the life of me I can't remember what air pressure to run in the tires. I'm guessing 8psi front and 6psi rear. Close?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, John

I usually run about 10 in the front and 8-10 in the rear for the dunes.....others may have a different opinion. Might want to stiffen up your suspension a bit too, as the sand will become much more "giving" than dirt, and you want the bike to ride higher.

I usually run about 15 in the front and 20 in the rear on my paddle tire but if you dont jump i would run about 10 in both tires.

If you have a paddle for the rear run it at 20 psi, no reason to run it low since it wont help traction and high pressure helps resist spinning on the rim. As for the front I normally go around 8.

I usually run around 15 on the paddle and 10 up front on a knobbie.

Also, don't forget to remove your plastic shock guard, or your paddle will do it for you.

Interesting.....I run 10 in the rear to aid in floatation....

Same here.

If it is a tight fit I would recommend a higher pressure like 15psi. If you air down the paddle will grow more at higher RPM.
