hey i was at glamis thursday-sunday and was wondering if anyone knows someone with a ds650 that has a 720 kit with NOS? we had a couple real good drags friday. cant believe i kept up with him!

think he was local....at least south western states. came in a tent so im assuming he didnt come from far.

dude your telling me? i was stoked! the second we lined up again he started making excuses like o well the bottles running low and oops i missed a shift, so like the third pass out i started maybe 4 quads back and ended about the same. had a polished extended arm, HIDs, and some dual exhaust runnin out the side. thing looked wicked, but i was thinkin it mightve been his first time out or something cuz theres no way i shouldve even been near him. although i did hook up like crazy with the paddles...i guess the pipe and programmer really do help.

That some crazy stuff man. Maybe he didnt know what he was doing. lol. What kinda paddles are you running? Yeah the DS really wakes up with a few simple mods. its a fast bike mainly because its so light compared to most bikes. Long live the DS! :D

how do you like them? i have a set of 20x11x9 ITP sand stars. and a set of 20x11x9
8 paddle haulers. I havent tried the sand stars. The haulers are real light and float well. they hook well also. give them a try if you havent.

i love the sand stars and hate them. since theyre chevroned with v-paddles, i cant slide around for crap, cuz they hook up everytime i turn. its great for the day in the dunes and big soft bowls if im chasing buggies, but at the drags theyre the best i think, cuz the paddles are super beefy, plus besides the 8(i think) regular paddles, they have another eight mini paddles between each larger paddle. just wish i had gotten the larger ones. i had haulers on my banshee and 250R and kinda wish i got those...but like i said its a love/hate relationship.

yea...only reason i even got the sand stars was last thanksgiving i went to glamis with knobbies, (that lasted for one ride before i got sick of sinking), then went to the sand mall and thats all they had on rims that would fit my quad.
