Hello I got a stock kfx 450r the only thing Iv changed is the front sprocket to a 13t for woods riding. Im going to Little Sahara next month for the first time. Dont know what tire looking at the sand stars and the aerospeeds????? Also what size tire stock wheels but how tall???? Iv read about people droping a tooth in front because of bogging on hill climbs. Was thinking about putting the stock 14t back on for more top end but dont want bogging. Thanks

I would go with the 13 tooth in the front just so you can start out and do hill climbs in 2nd gear.

The sand tires I recommend is Skat-Trak extremes 21x12x8 in 8x9 in rims 6 paddle call Fullerton Sand Sports
714-484-5996


I paid 265.00 shipped for mine you cant go wrong with this setup!!!

i've been thinking about getting those tires, the extremes. but i'm not sure if i should get the 21 or 20" and how many paddles i should go with. i already have a 15t front sprocket for more top end and i'm running 20" sand stars now. would a 21" make it bog too much with that sprocket? any advice?

If you call the folks at Fullerton they usually ask some questions about your quad, HP, where and how you ride and make a recommendation on which setup will probably work best for you.

I have the 6 paddle padla brats on mine and I love them. One thing to note they are some roostin S.O.B.s and if someone is following you they will let you know about it.

I was there earlier this month with my Kawi.

I tried many differant tires and gearing there. I would highly recomend 6-paddle Skt Trak Haulers.

I use 21-12-8.00 on Douglas 8 x 8 Blue Lable wheels with 4-5 psi....


This setup worked awesome with the 13t in the front and stock rear......
