I would either go with a +4 or +6... Im running a +6 on my banshee and it is very duneable... We ride a lot of trails at the dunes and i can still turn with no problem... It is a blast to hillshoot with a +6 swinger...

+6?? If your not dragging i dont think you need that long maybe a +3 or +4 dont know about dunes much but but how bout SMC? There cheap and have a good warranty. Our Houser.

Most fast drag bikes run a +12 to +18 not just a +6... +6 works awesome for me and i can still jump all day with it and it hooks awesome with a good set of paddles.

I would also go with the +6. There aren't to bad in the trails or dune ridding. I see your going 498, so I figure your going to end up going drag in the future. A +6 is a great start. If you ever want to go faster than the swingarm allows, just get a wheelie bar. There are alot of custom fabricators around that are fairly cheap, but you have to look at the weight issue if you ever plan to be competitive in drag racing. If you just plan on dune ridding, weight probably won't be that much of a factor.

    • Bike/brand of choice?

      So one thing I enjoy about Quadcrazy is the amount of diversity when it comes to the bike/brand of choice.   We all hear about so many different brands/types that we need help or helping out with!  Myself ive had just about every brand bike except for a Suzuki which I’m currently seeking as my next project😜. I currently have 5 quads and they are all different in brand except for two Honda’s one of which is a newer bike fuel injected. I have to say so far through all the bikes I’ve worked on my brand of choice would be Honda! I think they make a great product!  I love the older carburetor bikes!  Now I’m sure some of the other members feel differently and I would like to hear your bike of choice and why?  Wether it be the repairs, handling, look, safety, simplicity, electronics etc!!!!!!! One of the reasons I bring this up is I have friend that recently purchased a can am new!  I asked him why a can am after all the years of Polaris?  He said it’s a nice looking bike and wanted to try something new. He has rode the bike three or four times and hated it!  So a trip back to the dealer he traded it in for a Polaris and he’s very happy now.  A costly mistake since he lost money on the can am but back to his Polaris that he said he will never stray again.  Let’s hear it !

    • Honda 2013 420 reverse problem

      My 2013 Honda 420 occasionally won't go into reverse. I don't think it is in the transmission as it does not make a click or noise. I think it is in the lockout. Someone told me when I ride near the ocean the salt can get on something. Any ideas?

      The title is for attention. I’m prepping my cylinder head off of an unknown year 400ex to install on my quad. And I’m examining it and there’s literally a Jewish start( Star of David) protruding from the metal on the camshaft side of the head. It’s not imprinted or etched/ engraved. It’s coming out of the metal. DOES ANYONE HAVE INFORMATION ON WHY ITS THERE??? I’ve attached a picture

      So I have a 1994 Honda trx300 and I still am having some carb issues. I cleaned the carb and installed a new carb kit. Starts great, idles great, but when in 3rd it seems to pulsate. Not steady power. Any ideas on the setting the setting for the carb? I put a new spark plug in and the old one did seem pretty dark and sooty. I checked the gap on new one and installed. Went for a ride and it didn't seem any different. Any suggestions would be great..

      I just bought two 1985 TRX250's from my father-in-law. One runs great, the other not so much. The one is having issues with the shifter. The shifter seems to be resting lower than normal. When I press the shifter downward, it just pops back up. Any thougjts as to what the issue might be?
