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.
