Not really following your question. Do you mean the differnce in the way it hooks up in the sand ? If so, it's going to be night and day difference. SS's are a great tire for playing in the sand. 20's are a bit small IMO, but my brother LOVES his.

Ride safe, dunes can be dangerous

I rode at Silver Lake with my Razr 2's last yeah and I thought they did sweet, Until I bolted on a set on Haulers..... Never again will I ride without them haulers. I just picked up some from Twister on here a few weeks ago so I don't have to borrow any. Now I just gotta find another set when my funds allow...

Congrats on the buy and welcome to the site!

I went from riding dirt to sand and have never went back to dirt :lol:

Sand stars were my first set of paddles but where I ride I kept getting stuck down in the tree/hill shoots (won't really have that problem in the bigger dunes). I went to a straight paddle like skat trak hauler or extreme and stick with those now.

As far as mods...depends on how much you want to spend of course!! You could do head work with larger valves and a more aggressive cam such as a HDD 5050, Web 4, or maybe hotcams 3 along with a higher compression piston like a CP 11 or 12:1 since you are closer to sea level. That would be a nice 5-6 mod bike that would put you around 60-65hp.

Skat track hualers shaved beed to beed with 8in wheels work very well the lighter the better! My first build was barker duels, intake, pc3, Hot cam 3, and a cp 13:1. I was really happy with that build for quite a while and it ran on pump fuel. If your close to sea level you wouldn't want to go more the a 12:1 or 11:5:1 unless you want to run race fuel. That set up made 54hp for me @ 4800ft. Like said above, you being at sea level could easely see in the 60's with less compression then I had. That would be a real good jump in HP for not a whole lot of money. If you have the money and want to go bigger right of the bat then you would want a differant cam and maybe a better intake. All depends on what you want and how much $ you are willing to spend.

That's awesome you had a good time! I always felt bad for people that were stuck with dirt only, it seems like to me that there is no better terrain to ride on than sand when it comes to an ATV. If I was on a dirt bike that would be a different story of course.

are the dasa duals better than everything else cause i was thinkin the force 4's
even tho i know its pretty much personal prefrence
I don't think any head to head dyno comparisons have been done so there is really no way to tell. I do know that the can cores are bigger then Barkers. I got them because I wanted something different then everybody else. Plus it mounts with welded tabs so there is no worry of straps breaking or becoming loose. But to each their own! :thumbsup:

Yep same reason i went with the force 4's same hp as barkers and cheaper with more free accessories. Brandon he did say he was on a budget and the dasa's are the most expensive duals out there, we don't all have military money to throw around like you do :D

More like tax return money! haha! Yeah, I saw that part of his post after I said that. My bad, lol. I doing alright, just working a lot, drinking up a storm, and counting the days 'till I see my daughter again. To the OP, there are always quite a few duals in the "For Sale" section on here that are usually around $400-$500 dollars. That will probably be your best bet.
