I race and I don't use them, never knocked a tire. Too much extra unsprung weight and added weight to hold back performance.So that's the million dollar question, how important are beat locks? The XRS has them of course, but when people put aftermarket on unless they race they seem to not worry about it. Or am I wrong?
Thanks Glamisfan, I will run that at dunefest at the end of the month. We run 5psi front and rear on the quads and never have had a problem. I can see the extra 3psi because of the weight of the Maverick. The sand is really soft this time of year and only getting softer.I get mine this week, but I won't use them for a while. A guess would to run them at 8 psi?
I agree. Too much tire roll with less than 8 psi. Also take notice of the sand. I would think the sand at the coast would allow more psi since it may have moisture in it, or be dense & courser grit.Hmmm.... If it was me, I'd run 7 psi in the front, or maybe 8. And try 10 psi in the rear. I'd run that in the rear for about 20 minutes. Also race someone up a hill and count the car lengths you beat him by. Then try 8 psi and do the same. I wouldn't go lower then 7 without beadlocks.
